Yoga Baby doesn't even have teeth yet.
He just recently--at 7 months-- learned to crawl.
Now, not 3 weeks later YOGA BABY pulled himself up to standing all by himself.
Then, why Yoga Baby? HOW?
One day last week, when no one was watching, so no one was there to tell him "be careful" "no no Baby" "You might fall, Yoga Baby grabbed hold of the laundry basket and pulled himself up to standing.
"Come on, Legs! Don't fail me now. Straighten up! Be strong! Give me some lift off!
Now--"No Prob, Bob!"--YOGA BABY pulls himself up all the time.
That's the thing. It's not about knowing you CAN. . . . It's about not thinking "I CAN'T"
It's about starting from a place of "CAN!" Then asking yourself "HOW?"
But . . . but: Are we born with that niggling voice that tells us "Can't." "No." "Don't Even Try?" "You're Gonna Fail"?
What do you think? Is that "Can't" there, talking to Yoga Baby even while he's pulling himself up? But because he can't talk yet, he doesn't understand what it's saying? Is that why Yoga Baby dares the impossible? Or does "can't" have to be taught?
Is "Can" in our nature and "Can't" from our nurture?
If "Can't" is learned, can it be unlearned?
Start with Can! Then, take a lesson from Yoga Baby, and ask yourself: How?
HOW? STARTS NOW!
