Yoga Principle # 7: Work Hard

 

Be disciplined. Always try your best. Establish good habits. Finish what you start. Persevere: Don’t give up!

 

 

Avoid: being lazy, unmotivated, giving up easily

 

 

Practice: perseverance, developing good habits, having determination and enthusiasm for daily and 

 

long-term goals

 

 

Example #1: You find Sun Salutation difficult and decide to practice five Half Sun Salutes each day 

 

upon waking, until you reach your goal of touching your toes.

 

Example #2: You decide to establish the habit of completing your homework right after school, before 

 

heading out to play. You know that doing so will ensure that your homework gets done on time and 

 

does not get forgotten. Plus, it’s a good habit that will serve you well in the short and long term.
