There is no right way.
There are just ways that happened to work — for the most part — for a lot of people. There are ways that are promoted by people who have a large following. There are statistics showing that a lot of people who do a certain something, obtain a particular outcome.
A lot of people may flourish in a formal education setting, but maybe formality happens to be what holds you back.
A lot of people may need around 10,000 hours to become really good at something, while with your skill-set you may need 15,000…or 500.
A lot of performers get a particular education and move to a particular city to do their craft, but that doesn’t mean you need to do the same to be just as fulfilled.
A lot of addicts never manage to get their lives together, but a lot of them really do… in a huge way.
Just because 6 days a week for 4 years, plus several retreats in India worked for internet-famous yoga teachers, doesn’t mean that that’s exactly what you need to reach your desired level of fitness.
We all have things in common, but we have so many things that are NOT in common with “a lot” of people.
The world doesn’t make that much sense! If only it made that much sense and held that much order.
We don’t even all want the same things for the same reasons, learn in the same way, act out of from the same inspiration, or live for the same goals!
We are way too complex creatures for such things.
Listening to recommended ways-that-work for a lot of people is smart. But developing our own custom methodology and applying personalized adjustments to those paths is the genius behind it all.
