Distractions. We all have them these days. How do you keep your eyes on the prize. We’ll talk about it in Eyes On The Prize-Always A Student-Bob Davis Yoga Podcast-768.
Eyes On The Prize Please
Keeping your eyes on the prize means focus, goal setting and follow through. It’s all about reaching a positive result. A personal goal, or some kind of outcome.
More Practice Clearer Mind
Moreover one of the promises of a daily yoga practice is a clear mind. By refining and refocusing the mind through a yoga practice we hope to gain a clearer perception of ourselves.
Age Doesn’t Matter
It’s especially relevant that we understand we live in an age of swirling distractions. Despite all the talk about young people and their portable devices and screen time, age doesn’t matter. All of us are bombarded constantly with messages.
News of the day. Friends and family. Our personal and business networks. In addition all the demands of modern life. Greater distractions we don’t see. Society and Politics. Personal pressures. Judgements we have to make to survive.
Transcending Day To Day Pressures
Our practice every day is supposed to be free of judgements. A time for us to take for ourselves to clear our mind and refocus. Yoga starts out as part of a fitness routine for many. For others a response to the pressures of life. After practicing for a while, something else starts to happen. We transcend the day to day pressures.

Needs and Wants
In conclusion there’s a sort of transcendence with yoga. I started to understand the difference between needs and wants. I realized I really didn’t need that much ‘stuff’ to be happy. Keeping my ‘eyes on the prize’ means planting seeds every day, rather than trying to harvest every day.
Quiet The Mind Quite The Mind
With distractions and judgements about everything seem to be everywhere these days, being able to quiet the mind can be the beginning of big changes.
