Start Small for Big Change
As the founder of Beyond Yoga, I’ve witnessed a lot of growth and change since the company began. But, the most important thing to me about my company is the impact it can have on individuals and the positive change it can bring.
My mission for BY has always been to help inspire women to feel good about themselves and their perfectly imperfect bodies – just as they are!
Such a BIG goal can feel overwhelming at times, especially when I continue to see women comparing themselves to others or changing themselves to fit an ideal that society has created for them.
That’s why it’s important to slow down and remember how change really happens: one person at a time.
To get our message out there, we can’t focus on changing the minds of the masses. We need to change the mind of our neighbor, our sister or our friend. We need to focus on one person at a time on an authentic, emotional level. There is no need for big screaming gestures because that’s not what gets the job done!
If you’re trying to create positive change in the world, remember that baby steps and small successes will move the needle. Take a stand for what you believe in because someone is listening and someone will change! And, in time, you will begin to see the fruits of your labor.
