The whole thing makes me cringe a little bit, but also I understand why we all play into this mindset to some degree. It would be amazing if a treatment or a yoga class could drastically and dramatically change the current situation. For one, people often mistake yoga, a treatment, or almost anything that feels good as "the moment" that everything is going to change and new life will be born. Time and time again, people walk out of class or a treatment inspired and ready to take on the world only to return looking for the next “feel good” hit after it fades.
The second reason I can understand the fixation with the “quick fix” is because it is spoon-fed to us by our very culture. Quick fixes don’t work and don’t last 99% of the time. Yet there are entire industries profiting off the myth that they do. I would be a hypocrite if I didn't admit that the shiniest selling feature of yoga wasn't how great it makes you feel. And there's nothing wrong with something that brings so much happiness and allows us to be healthier and stronger people. It’s the myth of instant transformation that traps us and causes one to quit a path long before the potential has borne its fruit.
Let’s take a moment to think about this. Why are you here reading this article? If I had to guess, I would say:
- You want to feel better than you do, for longer periods of time than you do.
- You want to be happy, healthy, and fulfilled.
- You want it all and you want it right NOW!
And you can have it all; but fair warning, there is no magic pill. To make a change, You will need to keep some small commitments and see them through. Steve and I have put together a 6 module program that you can complete on your own time with a lot of great resources and inspiration (including some yoga…of course).
Here is the deal: you can sign up for our brand new “Real Change” Program and even try it out for a week to see if it is for you. But, you will only get out what you put in and no one else can do it for you. If you want to change and you put in the effort to do so, then transformation is inevitable.
I won’t promise something I can’t deliver, but if you want to be a person that is:
- More deeply connected with others and the world around you
Remember, just because instant transformation is a myth doesn't mean that real and dramatic transformation isn't possible. You just need the right guidance and the systems to keep you on track. And that, my friends, is exactly why we designed this program. In fact, it is the entire reason that Aquin Yoga exists.
