Your guide to self-mastery and wellbeing
Â Â Â Â Â by Helena Lass MD
For years I knew that I want to help people to live happy, fulfilling and healthy lives, but the problem was that I COULD be successful in almost anything. Let me put it into other words â€“ there were just so many opportunities, and was interested in ALL of them, that it was difficult to narrow it down to one thing that I could start with.
I was thinking of opening a vegetarian restaurant AND a deli, a wellness resort & spa is still on my mind as is creating school programs for mental wellbeing & prevention. Some of you might also know that for 5 years I have expressed my creativity and eye for beauty through my ethnic-contemporary clothing line (www.sume.ee). I did know that I have a lot of potential, but my focus & energy were scattered. For me the problem was not having ideas, but having TOO MANY.
Can you relate?
So, to narrow it down, I would just keep asking myself â€žWhat is it, that I want to doâ€œ? â€“ Itâ€™s a good question, but would just drive me â€žcrazyâ€œ. I wanted to be of service and help people, but this is not enough if you want to be visible and really put yourself out there. I thought that I have to figure it all out BEFORE I start.
The point I realized is …
… As much as it is important to be really SPECIFIC in your goal, it is equally important to JUST DO IT. Whatever it is that you dream of accomplishing â€“ if you donâ€™t start, then the next doors wonâ€˜t open. You canâ€˜t learn and plan ALL beforehand, because nobody can â€žsee beyond the choices that you makeâ€œ*. There is no PERFECT place to start, as long as you start.
And this is exactly what I did. I started with my consultation-mentoring practice and it has been a year now when I started mindfulness trainings for groups with a friend. Now I have met wonderful business partners, have a lovely office in Estoniaâ€™s most beautiful park, have an exiting webpage coming up AND have enough time for myself & my family.
My life-lesson to take along from here is, that if you are determined to DO IT , then life around you provides the â€žHOWâ€œ on the way.
What is it that YOU want to do? Create or apply for a job that you love? Have perfect body? Look stylish and good? Learn to play music? Deepen your yoga practice? Meet the love of your life?
PS! I just shoot another small video this weekend for my upcoming homepage
