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.
