- My purpose around said Twitter account has changed. I am no longer looking for everyone in the world to read what I have to say. Now I just believe my message will get to the people who need it most.
- My teaching has changed and therefore I’m less driven by how many people turn up to practice and more in touch with how I’m serving the students that are there (see #1).
- I’m putting my practice into action and detaching from feeling “left out”, “left behind”, “out-of-the-loop”, “inadequate” or even “competing” with other yoga bloggers. All of those feeling and emotions have nothing to do with practicing yama and niyama and really living what I teach.
- I stopped measuring my success by how many people read my blog or join my Facebook and Twitter page. In other words, I kicked my ego to the door and am allowing my purpose to drive me, not some insatiable need to be accepted by the online yoga community.
Why have these things happened? For starters, I am much more comfortable in my skin and with my voice (written or spoken) and seeking Twitter followers is not a priority right now. It’s always such a delight to discover and connect with new people, but I’m just not as focused on making it happen. It will happen naturally you see. It’s not about how many followers I have or how many people #FF me on Fridays or how often I get in conversation with someone on Twitter. It’s not how fast my Facebook group grows or how many people read my posts. If I am really living my yoga, then my aim is to put what I’m learning and teaching out there in the hopes that it may help at least one person in this lifetime and detach from the outcome.
