But before I formally try to enlist you as an accomplice, here is a bit of history. For the past week or so, I’ve been meditating on ways to attract more visitors to this blog. So naturally, one question that comes up a lot is, what are people hoping to find when they visit this blog?
Now that’s the million dollar question that any good Internet marketer should be asking herself. But to rephrase the question, I might also ask myself, since this is a yoga blog, what exactly draws people to practice and study yoga?
And as someone who has been teaching yoga for over 9 years, I think I have a pretty good sense of what draws people to practice yoga.
And please don’t be offended by what I am about to say, because obviously people come to yoga for a huge variety of different reasons. There is not just ONE reason to practice yoga.
But here is a common thread I’ve noticed. People come to yoga when they are in transition. People come to yoga when they are struggling with something. Perhaps the loss of a loved one, a break up or divorce. People often come to yoga when they are feeling down on their luck, lost or alone. Essentially, people come to yoga when they’ve lost their mojo!
And believe me, I know what it feels like to lose that ever precious mojo, that spark, that joie de vivre!
I am sure that was my situation when I stumbled upon yoga back in November of 1997, although I am also sure that I was not aware of how dismal I was feeling. I was not aware enough to even know that I was miserable!
But the yoga practice was like having a huge dose of prana mainlining into my veins! It woke me up out of a deep slumber and I remain ever grateful towards the teacher who got me back to my practice in 1997.
So, I had this idea today about a contest I would like to host on this blog. It starts with a question.
Has there been a time in your life when you’ve lost your mojo? And would you be willing to share about it on this blog? I’m asking people to contact me via email with stories about losing and / or finding your mojo. The story can be short – just a few paragraphs, or it can be as long as you like.
I will take the best responses that I receive and post them to this blog (with your permission of course.) If you do not wish to go public with your story, you can still send it to me and I will not publish without your full consent.
So here is the question: Have you ever lost your mojo? Have you ever found your mojo? And what were the circumstances?
Send your entry in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
And to help keep you inspired to continue to find your mojo on a daily basis (because let’s face it – a mojo can be a fickle thing – It’s not always easy to hold onto it . . . . . ) so here is my offering to you. This is just one way that I’ve found to keep my “mojo workin’. ”
And if you’re serious about making changes . . . . .
