The Yoga of Investing in Yourself: Cate’s Take on breaking plateaus through skillful personal investment

“What do I need to know, How do I need to ask, and How do I out myself?”  Grace Edison mentioned rhetorically in conversation with me on skillful personal investment. She is getting serious about investing in herself. She wanted to find out what she didn’t know about the next level of personal investment.

Though I’ve done way better than most of my friends, in my cavalier opinion, I’ve only recently got experienced a real shift. I’m still maxing out my SEP IRA and expanding in real estate. But i’m also investing more in Yogahealer than ever as the team grows. As the team grows I grow.  Investing in yourself is a spectrum in every direction. As you become more whole you become more connected you become more interconnected.

Ground Rules for Mentoring

Lean in together

Commit to engage. If we lean in – we can decide what we are doing together. Create a relationship agreement.

Decide on your meeting rhythm   

Most mentorships arise naturally. Give a name to your conversations. Give a space and time. Give your relationship a rhythm to thrive. Your desires engender sparkle.

Sparkle or fizzle

Attend to the flame of what connects you. When you attend to the flame, your attention sparks the flame. What sparks your attention? What is sparky for you? Attend your inner spark and you attend your ability to thrive.

Be ready for action

Don’t dawdle – it’s boring to mentor a dawdler.

It’s equally boring to be mentored by a dawdler. The evolving version of ourselves is much more interesting.

Give to receive with your ears.

Pulsation is the nature of relationship.

For something or someone to be in relationship a polarity established itself. With polarity comes the twin powers of rebound and leverage. The more you can rebound your energy and focus, the more energy and focus you have to leverage. Without pulsation there is stagnation. The fastest path to get your relationship basking in pulsation is to give to receive. Give your attention, your listening.

Honesty, Care & Humility are the name of the game

Honesty is high strength liquid fire starter for relationships. Without it, fizzle happens. No one wants to spend time with arrogance. With humility, you don’t need to know what you haven’t already learned. Humility opens the gateway to learning. Showing or articulating your care for the partnership adds grease to the wheels. Decide which of these 3 you are working on & start working on it.
