When beginners try to turn on a longboard, they only use their head and eyes – as if looking at the desired destination alone was enough to get them to turn. The opposite tends to happen as they lose balance and fall off the board.
A better strategy is to turn with the shoulders. This strategy creates a fully embodied response, where the hips, legs, and ankles follow.
In the context of personal #growth , awareness of the desired #outcome alone doesn’t lead to change. A deeper and more embodied sense of curiosity is necessary to revisit our beliefs so that the rest can follow.
In the wise words of Gandhi: Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”
