REST DAY

“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.” 

Mahatma Gandhi was one of the most influential leaders of our time. His approach was loving, fair, kind, and rooted in the idea of positive change -- or more so a return to our most basic, true selves. His ideas worked on a very large political scale, but they are also very personal. 

Take, for instance, Gandhi’s fundamentals for changing the world, and tell me they are not perfect for success in the Whole Life Challenge.

  1. Change yourself. First make a mental shift within – one of positive resolve -- instead of blaming or trying to first change everything around you, and you can lay a powerful foundation for any kind of success. When you change you may find that the world “magically” changes with you.
  2. You are in control. Your thoughts and emotions may come, but your actions and reactions are always up to you. You have the power to choose anything.
  3. Forgive and let go. “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” This is almost never easy, but often when trying to create new habits, it’s necessary. It can be especially necessary to forgive yourself. Making room for who you’ve been will create room for who you want to be.
  4. Take care of this moment. Often the best way to overcome the resistance that can stop us from taking action is to be in the present. When things feel tough, don’t worry about the next moment -- it’s out of your control. Take care of right now, the only moment over which anyone has control.
  5. Without action, you aren’t going anywhere. “An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.” Do it already. Talking gets you nowhere.
  6. Everyone is human. “It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.” We all make mistakes. Perfection is an unreasonable standard that only creates resentment. Learn from slip-ups, brush yourself off, keep going.
  7. Persist. Success seldom comes as quickly as we’d like. One reason people don’t often get what they want is simply because they give up too soon.
  8. See the good in people and help them. The great thing about this challenge is the communal support. It’s great to be able to lean on others, but know they want to lean on you, too. You’re as much a rock in this community as anyone else. Assume everyone is doing the best and lend a hand when needed.
  9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” No one ever regrets giving their best.
  10. Continue to grow and evolve. An eight-week challenge is just a blip of time in the grand scheme of things, but it can act as a powerful and positive tool in our continual growth and evolution. This challenge is probably not the very beginning of your journey and it’s certainly not the end.


Enjoy the ride!
