You’re like a kid in a candy store

Hey you guys are sharp!

You’ve got the ‘Eye of the Tiger’ baby =)

As many of you pointed out, I’d mentioned that the 2nd biggest challenge faced by many Qigong practitioners is trying to find the time to practice.

And that it comes in two flavours, but I only gave you one of them yesterday

*Doh!*

So here’s a rare Saturday post to fill in the blanks.

The second flavour to the: “I can’t find the time.” challenge is this:

“Not being able to find the time to practice because of
diluted focus caused by competing practices.”

I regularly receive emails from folks telling me that they practice:

  • Tai Chi
  • Yoga
  • Some other type of Qigong
  • Pilates
  • Reiki

And a whole list of other activities…

Every Day!

Okay, I exagerate slightly, but it seems very common for folks to try and practice at least two or three arts in addition to the Qigong I teach.

If this is you and you have no trouble packing all these activities into your life, very good carry on.

But if you find that you’re trying to spread your focus too thin over too large an area… read on.

I think this challenge is so common because there’s just so much good stuff to practice. How do you possibly choose? I mean you want to practice the best you can, but how can you tell what the best is, unless you’ve practiced everything?

I get it.

The Internet certainly doesn’t help either.

Once sacred teachings that you’d be lucky to be able to learn at all are now available for $10 of Amazon or even a free report off Bob’s website.

It’s easy to end up feeling like a kid in a candy store.

The thing to remember, especially with Tai Chi, Yoga and Qigong is that they are ‘complete arts’ in their own right.

Which means if you’re learning and practicing them correctly, there really is no need to learn anything else.

You’ll be getting all your health, energy and peace of mind benefits from one source.

A wise person once told me:

“You can have anything you want, you just can’t have everything you want.”

So if you’re finding it hard to practice because of diluted focus – you’re going to have to choose.

That’s a decision only you can make.

But for what it’s worth, I recommend you go with the practice you enjoy the most.

Why?

Because you’re much more likely to stick with it for the long haul if you enjoy it and Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong and the rest are arts that have to be practiced regularly, daily and on going… if you want to keep getting great results.

I’ll leave you with these words of Bruce Lee:

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

Or in other words, get good at one thing and keep your focus there.

If you’re looking for tools to help you deepen your Qigong focus may I recommend you browse the Qigong15 shop? I’m certain you’ll find something valuable there:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll catch up with you again on Monday =)

Kindest regards

P.S. 5 day sugar fast completed, surprisingly easily – thanks to your help. I tell you, the thought of having to tell you I wimped out took care of any thoughts of giving in to temptation.
