030 - 7 Step Guide to How to believe in yourself, overcome self-doubt and achieve your goals, by Carmen Parks

Let’s say you see yourself as 3 on the scale from 1 to 10 in whatever you want to pursue, and you want to become 9 or 10. It will take some effort to get there, some investment of time and money, it will take some education and practice. It will take level 9 or 10 investment in yourself. However if you see yourself as 3, you will never invest that much in yourself. It will look like too much of an investment to you just because of your belief level.      No we get a vicious circle. Raising belief requires actions, and people don’t take necessary actions because belief is low. That’s the reason people get stuck in life. My coach told me that there are two major obstacles on the way to success: fear and doubt.

Today I’d like to have a very serious talk about… a toy. Yes, very serious toy. Most of people I am sure have seen it. You can google it under the name Roly-Poly Doll or Roly-Poly Toy, or under Tumbler Doll. In Russian it is very well know under the name Nevolyashka or Vanka-Vstanka. There are similar dolls in other countries. They look different, but they all have a similar feature: no matter how many times you knock them down, no matter how you throw them on the floor, they always get up.

028 - Paulette Bodeman - teacher and coach in Phoenix AZ - about Anusara Yoga

Today, I will introduce to you another great guest. You will hear from Paulette Bodeman, who is a great, well known Yoga teacher and a coach.   Paulette is teaching Anusara style, which is one of the modern schools of Yoga. I believe it was created by the American teacher of Iyengar Yoga style in 1997. That answers my question why I have not heard about it. I was introduced to Yoga in 1983. So at the same time when Anusara was becoming popular, I already pretty much found my style, and by the year 2000, I had reduced my Yoga practice to some basic asanas in favor of Martial Art, Qigong and couple of other Taoist practices.     But I still love Yoga, and I think of it as one of the greatest systems that have ever existed on the Earth. I love to learn new things, and I was blessed to meet people like Paulette.

025 - Walking in the Rain: How to Deal with Stressful Environment One Step at a Time

In my previous episode I gave an analogy of a rain, meaning the rain of circumstances that keeps pouring on us non stop. We finished last time with the thought that sometimes we just have to bite the bullet and go through the rain, one step at the time. I will use the same analogy of the rain, and if you did not listen to the previous episode, I may suggest you do that so I will hopefully make more sense today.    Let’s start with several points regarding the mindset of going through the rain. Again, this is just my thought process, this is how I approach rainy day. This doesn’t have to be you.   But for me, the first question I would ask myself, is “what am I up against?” This brings us back to the previous episode where I was talking about stopping for a moment to assess the situation. So, what am I up against?

#22 - Where the Stress Comes From? What causes Stress in our life?

The very first step in getting rid of stress in our life is to recognize where it comes from. Like any physical stress, emotional stress is caused by minimum two forces. One of them is often out of our control, but another one is 100% under control. If we learn how to use it, we can start getting rid of stress in our life, live stressless, happy and positive life!

#19 – Dedication to training – What We Do vs. How We Live

There's a joke. Question: How many psychologists does it take to change the light bulb? Answer is: Just one. But the light bulb has to really want to change.   Indeed, change comes from inside. I was not a morning person either. But it changed overnight when I got a dream. I did not question what motivated me to get up in the morning. I was looking forward to training, and getting up in the morning was the way to do it. I did not have to push myself to get up, well, most of the time. I was just getting up without even thinking about it. My training was not what I did. That was how I chose to live. That was who I was.   Have I ever felt tired? Have I ever wanted to skip a training? Of course! Have I ever had to push myself to work out? Absolutely! This is when variety in training comes really handy. I was talking about it last time. My each training has been slightly different every time. Or sometimes, a whole lot different. That's why I did not feel mental fatigue from doing the same thing over and over.    Do you have to train in the morning? Not really! Do it whenever you have time. But do it regularly. I like mornings for a couple of reasons.   First, I like the whole idea of training at the sunrise or sunset. This is when Yin changes to Yan, or Yan changes to Yin. I've heard that chi, or prana, is the best during these periods of time. However, there are usually very few people training outside in the morning, while sunsets are much busier with people coming just to watch a sunset, or having picnics in the afternoon.     Second, I just like sunrises, and I like fresh air of the night.    I am not a motivational coach. I am not gonna try to convince everybody jump off their couches and start training. But today I'm gonna leave you with these humble thoughts:    First, Figure out what is it that you really want, if you don't know that yet, of course. As I was saying in my previous episode, often people go after certain things, mistaking them for something they really want. It is not always that easy to identify. That's why people go to career advisers, life coaches, personal trainers, etc. They go to somebody who can help them to identify their dreams, set realistic goals and develop a plan of action . People need clarity of the vision in order to move forward, and I am not an exception.   Second, Keep in mind, there will be things you will have to give up. I've heard people say, I am doing nothing all day long, I have nothing to give up. Exactly, they need to give up that whole lot of nothing, and start doing something, and be consistent at that.    Finally, remember, there is often more than one way to get where you want. When you picture your goal in your mind, how you get there is not that important, as long as it is legal and ethical. If you wanna get in shape but don't like martial arts, for example, do cycling. Don't like weight lifting? Go for Zumba. Don't like Yoga? Maybe Do-In is your way... But do something. If you like martial arts like I do, then you cannot Zumba your way into that. You gotta do martial arts. But you can change style. Or maybe you don't like mornings, then practice at night. Go to 24 hour fitness club.  If there's a will, there's a way. Always. If you cannot find your dream, get yourself a coach, ask for help in setting your goals. Maybe there's something out there you've never heard of, that you will like.   To find out the whole story, listen to my podcast :)PEACE!Eugene

#18 – Staying Consistent on the Path – About Passion to Learn and Practice

The question about staying on the Path came up in my mind quite a few times. I have been trying to find out what motivated me. Why did I start training all of a sudden? Why did I choose Martial Arts over any sports? Why have I been staying with my training for 30 years, and I still did not lose my interest? Why did I choose shakuhachi flute, one of the most difficult instruments in the World, and I have been studying it and practicing daily for over 10 years? I was talking about all the things I have been doing in my life in one of my previous episodes. People ask me, what helped me to stay consistent? I used to say, I did it because I liked it. But what made me like it? I had to study some things about motivation, about consistency, so I could at least explain it to other people. And perhaps, help somebody to make a decision. Yep, helping somebody is one of the points I will mention later today.   First of all, we need to remember, that we are dealing with a mindset. I've seen so many people trying to simplify their lives by dividing things into black and white. In reality, look at the Nature. How much black and white can you really see around?    I can say the same about our thought process. We can define two extremes. I am talking about "I want to do" vs. "I have to do". I am not getting in a long philosophical discussions about needs, desires and suffering. No doubt, Zen monk will define totally different levels for those two extremes, comparing to myself. But like my Zen teacher said, "who is - I?" There are plenty of wonderful recored lessons made by Zen teachers, you can find somebody competent in this area. And I am just sharing my Path.    DOWNLOAD

#17 – My Holistic Transformation – First Steps in an Thousand miles Journey

Today I’d like to talk about first steps I took on my Path to changing myself. Being an outcast is one thing. Getting out of it requires some steady efforts. But I think the most important is the very first step. What makes it so difficult?   First, Overcoming inertia? Yes. That very first effort to make the initial move can be extremely difficult. I think it came easy for me because the discomfort from being me was much greater than discomfort from changing. It was time to do it. I did not take time to procrastinate. My thought process switched instantly from total lack of interest to obsession with my training.   Second, perhaps fear of failure? Of course! Why would I believe I could achieve any degree of success in physical activity if I hated every second of it for as long as I remembered myself? It was later when I found out that every successful person has to go through certain number of failures. But at that time I did not know those details. Nobody told me.    Third, Fear to be laughed at? No doubt about that. Of course, the whole World was gonna point fingers at me and laugh. My classmates already did. Besides, you know if you stick your head above the crowd, then get ready to receive a tomato.    Any other reasons? Send me an email, let me know. We may discuss it next time.   Listen to the podcast to know more :)

#15 – Music of my Tea – How Tea Way became the Way of my Holistic Life

Tea drinking in my Path   I'd like to talk about Tea and tea ceremony, and about how I personally got into tea and what it means to me. I often look at my life as a jigsaw puzzle, and Tea became one of the valuable pieces. It felt like there was a very specific place in my life for tea, and nothing else could replace it.   Tea has been part of my daily routine for as long as I remember myself. I grew up drinking tea. I grew up in Soviet Union. Our neighbors from the South were China, Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey. India was not an immediate neighbor, but our countries were really great friends. So, our friends and neighbors had tea as a big part of their culture. No wonder that it became a big part of Russian culture as well. And by the way, Russian word for tea is "Chai". I am not sure if the word has Russian origin, but it is definitely part of Russian language now. And perhaps has been for at least 1000 years. But I am not gonna speculate about etymology.   My first tea experience began with loose black tea. We did not have any tea bags, we used loose leaf black tea from India or Ceylon, which is now called Sri Lanka.  The tea tradition as I remember it, involved making really thick brew of black tea in a small porcelain tea pot. My grandma would usually preheat teapot with hot water, then put tea there, and pour boiling water. After that she would cover it and leave it alone for a while. After tea was ready, we would pour hot water in a cup and add concentrated tea from the tea pot.   Downoad Podcast Site

#14 – Maximize Your Learning and Practicing as a Way of Balanced Life

Today I'd like to answer a question I've been asked many times. The question is: where do I get time to practice everything I do? Indeed, autogenic training, yoga, meditation, martial arts, Chi Kung, reflexology, tea ceremony, gardening, music, and so on. This is quite a list of activities, especially since I was going full time to medical university and learning English on my own. Yes, I did. I also learned shorthand in the meantime, which helped me a lot to write down all my lectures word by word. We did not have technology at that time, as we have it today.   First of all, let's separate two types of learning.  As babies, we learn to walk, to talk, to do all basic things we need to learn. Later we learn to read, to write, to ride a tricycle, to play games etc. This is initial learning. Once we learn to read and write, do we keep learning? Of course we do. We may not spend extra time for that, unless reading and writing is a part of our further education and perhaps part of our future career . But we constantly learn something new about our own language. I can guarantee I can take almost any native English speaker and find some words in the English dictionary that they don't know. If you don't believe me, take a tour inside the hospital and try to name every medical device you see there. Not in Latin, in plain English. Or go to the music store and name every piece you see there. Again, in plain English. We just don't need all that vocabulary in our every day life. But we can definitely learn a lot. And we do. This is ongoing learning...   Want to know more? Listen to my Podcast. DOWNLOAD

#13 – Healing Vibrations – How various sounds can be used for meditation

Last year we started discussing meditation as a tool, and in the previous episode we were talking about Music meditation with shakuhachi flute, which is an ancient Zen tradition called Suizen. I mentioned some benefits of using shakuhachi flute for meditation, and one of them was vibrations. Sound is vibrations. Today I'd like to talk about various types of vibrations used in different types of meditation. This is not a comprehensive tutorial by any means, just  a quick overview of what I had a personal experience with.   Why vibrations, you may ask? Well, we cannot live, function, communicate, hear, see of feel without help of some kind of vibrations. We may admit it or deny it, it doesn't change anything. So we may as well use it to our benefit. And vibrations have been used for many thousands of years as a part of meditation, or even as stand alone healing practice. In one of my video episodes I will demonstrate some vibration techniques and exercises, but today we will just talk. Download

#12 – Suizen – Ancient Flute Music Meditation with Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute

... Shakuhachi is a vertical bamboo flute. According to what I know, it came to Japan from China with Chan or Zen Buddhism. Shakuhachi tradition is connected to monk Puhua, known in Japan as Fuke. Fuke was walking all over the place preaching Zen, and he had a hand bell he carried with him. Fuke did not play flute, he was just ringing the bell. However, one of his disciples cut a piece of bamboo and started making sound blowing it like an end blown flute.  The instrument did not have holes yet, and the name of it was Kyotaku, which means false bell. The sound of the instrument reminded sound of the bell. This is how the tradition was born... To know more, listen to the podcast ;) DOWNLOAD HERE Have a wonderful day! Eugene

#11 - Introduction to Meditation – What this so popular practice really is

Today I'd like to discuss one of the most popular practices, and that is Meditation. Indeed, everywhere we go, we hear the word meditation. Yoga and meditation, sitting meditation, walking meditation, just meditation, or whatever meditation that could be. Meditation became a generic term to describe the whole variety of practices that came from different religions and philosophies.      Therefore, to say "I am practicing meditation" is like saying "I am into fitness" without specifying what kind of fitness: jogging, body weight, weight lifting, other kinds of resistance or weight training, zumba, aerobic dancing, cycling, cardio kick boxing, etc. So saying I am doing meditation is just letting somebody know that you are practicing some kind of mental, emotional or spiritual fitness, whatever your program is. But that's about it. There's no word meditation in Yoga, Martial Arts, Buddhism, Daoism etc.   Download

#10 - Softness in Martial Arts and Every Day Life – Path of the Water Part 2

Last time we started talking about the Path of the Water, about how soft but strong the water is. Today I'd like to talk more about this in a context of martial art application. First of all, lets define Martial Arts. I am not talking about any specific style now. What is Martial Art in general? It is often seen by many as set of hand-to-hand combat techniques designed to allow one person to defeat another person in a competition. It can be done in a form of wrestling, boxing, various styles of strikes, joint locks, weapons etc., or combination of all of the above.    Well, while there's nothing wrong with some competition, this is not what I am talking about. I am not talking about competeing and winning. Nobody wins a real fight, there are only survivors.   Download

#9 - The Path of the Water – Soft, Flexible, Persistent and Very Strong

Today I'd like to talk about the Path of the Water. I mentioned the path of the least resistance a couple of times in my previous podcasts. How to determine where is the line separating justifiable resistance from excessive force?   I often hear people talking about "being like water" in the context of complete non resistance. But is it really so? If water was such a non-resistant substance than tsunami would not present any danger to people, and it would not cause any devastation like it does sometimes. And we cannot blame the ocean for not being like water. So, is water really that yielding and soft?.. Listen to the podcast to hear the full story   Download

Second, I will only try to briefly describe what I studied and what I believe in. Finally, Tao is something that cannot be expressed in words.

#6 – The Middle Path – The Wind Rider is Watching the Middle

Shao Dao is not just a regular Martial Art School. Instead, it is a whole philosophy in its own right. I will not even try to describe Dao in a short podcast. I will not try to describe Dao period. Everything I say is just like a snapshot of my perception of the World at the moment I said that. And the very next second it may change and turn into its opposite like Yin turns into Yan or Yan into Yin. So there is no Status Quo in life. Everything is changing constantly. There is nothing permanent except the change itself. And this may change too! How often have I seen people who were trying to hold on their thoughts thinking that they got the life by the tail?
