“Take up one idea. Make that idea your life – think of it, dream of of, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.” – Swami Vivekananda

I have been having my mid-life crisis or something (hah!) and trying to plot some changes in my life, including my so-called career. This quote really strikes me as a terrific description of the mindset that I, or anyone, really needs before these changes can happen. Yet another interesting example of the ways yoga and “real life” connect. 🙂
