We are almost at the finish line of the Challenge! For some of you the first 1-2 weeks were pretty easy. They were fun, you were enlivened by the challenge, the possibility of something new and different, and excited to prove to yourself that you were capable of something that may have occurred as “impossible” in the past.
Then came week 3. Somewhere right in there the “fad” part of the challenge ended and stuff got real. The may have been the time when some of you cried over something you couldn’t have. This is when the ninja started kicking his feet — he started to make this whole thing look dangerous.
Well you are past week 3, the first “storm” of this journey. Things have calmed down a little. Some things were lost and some things have been gained. You’re next test is just over the horizon — complacency and over-confidence. This is not to say that you shouldn’t be confident in some of the new skills that you have gained. Over-confidence is confidence without vigilence. It’s assuming that you’ve now got it all wired. Now is the time to enjoy your new strength. That strength now includes your new ability to be relaxed but aware.
You do in fact have this wired. That does not mean that you should go on auto-pilot. Now comes the fun — you get to watch, relaxed, at all the things that would have tripped you up 2 weeks ago. Sail past them smoothly, wave and smile, and be aware enough to enjoy your lack of emotional reaction to them, you’ve earned it.
Your inner ninja is kicking in – getting you through it! You will make it!
