Level 3.27 - Readiness

and level your life with readiness
Level Your Life - [The Level of Readiness] [3.27]


If one is not ready, no forward movement is possible.
There is an old asian saying: When the student is ready, the teacher appears." The truth is, the teacher was always available but the student wasn´t ready to notice.

Coaches get frustrated and impatient with their athletes who become complaces and make little effort to improve. Parents become intolerant of their children who do not seem motivated to work diligently.CEOs in major corportations wonder why certain staff are restistant to change and growth. In all of these cases, it is helpful to  understand that it´s not the teaching per se but rather the student who is no ready.All one can do in such a situation is to provide an environment in which others are not threatened and can grow, learn and expand at their own natural pace - when they are, indeed, ready.

In the Art of War, Sun Tzu mentions that a crucial rule of combat is not co count on opponents not showing up , but to instead have ways to be ready to deal with them when they do.If you are not ready, you miss the opportunity in the moment to grow, advance and succeed. The Teacher will be there when you are ready.
We suggest you leave no stone unturned in your pursuit of the extraordinary in your life. This means placing yourself in a position to quickly respond to new learning, new opportunities and new possibilities. If you fail at something , know that the obstacke may be as simple as a lack of readiness.Through kindness, respect and patience you can accelrate the process of becoming ready.

Declaration: I do all i can to place myself in position to strike and get what I like.
I am ready, eager and able to advance in this life.

Reflection: What are some examples from my past when I wasn´t ready to go forward and how could I have changed that for better results? What one thing can I do today to position myself to be readier tomorrow for personal advanced in sports,work and life ?
