Daniel Pink wrote in Drive that what really motivates us is Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose. The idea of mastery creates thinking for each of us – WHAT am I good at? What do I WANT to be good at? Am I willing to do the WORK to be a master?

To be the best you, Master Shi Heng Yi (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-079YIasck&feature=youtu.be) says there are 5 hindrances you must remove to accomplish this –

1) Sensual Desire – Following temptation of your senses that stops your forward movement

2) Ill Will – Negative emotion toward an object, situation, or person

3) Heaviness – mental or physical effort that holds you back

4) Unsettled Mind – Not being in the moment or jumping from thing to thing

5) Skeptical Doubt – Indecisive or clouded mind creating sensation of being stuck

As I reflected on these hindrances, I can see (and have seen) how they create a cloud that prevents me from moving forward as effectively as I could. How do you get over these? Master Shi recommends getting caught in the RAIN:

Recognize which hindrance you are stuck in

Accept that you are there (and accept how people are – you can’t change THEM)

Investigate what is keeping you there (ask questions)

Non-identify – see that you are made up of the mind, body, and emotion and how you will move forward

Stuck? Go out in the Rain!!
