I am stepping into 2021 with a Beginner's Mind, Shoshin, as it is called in Japanese.
Shunryu Suzuki says, "If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few.”
A beginner's mind will see me moving forward with:
* Willingness to make mistakes
I will leave behind:
* Preconceived ideas, esp. of success & failure
I will first and foremost commit to my growth as a student. No matter how far others think I have come.
This is my promise to me.
