Plateau - be in and enjoy it and also try to come out of it simultaneously

Hi All,

Yesterday someone mentioned to some people that he wants to get motivated back into the LESMILLS BODYCOMBAT class and that he had been highly regular with it before. I mentioned that he could've hit a plateau and that then shared some things on which someone else mentioned that whether I had a read a book because what I was mentioning was very similar to the book. I told him that I haven't, however, I had once hit a plateau and that then my martial arts teacher had shared about it with me on which I've thought and worked on by myself since then. One thing of difference between the book and me according to the person was that I had mentioned that when in a plateau, be in and enjoy it and also try to come out of it simultaneously whereas the book didn't mention about coming out of it simultaneously. The person mentioned that he would scan and send me the pages of the book which mentions plateau which is very kind of him and that I gave him my card having my www.personalfoldersoftware.com web-site on it for my contact details.

Also, I'm sharing this http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/ezine/article.php?article=767 which mentions:

As I was once told by a very wise teacher, "If you find yourself on a plateau, sit back and enjoy the view." Plateaus in martial arts are often inevitable, so if you want to continue your training, you will have to manage it in some way. However, it is important for you to understand that being stuck is just another opportunity for you to rub against the tough spots. Because after enough rubbing and polishing those tough spots, you can be certain they will eventually become smooth enough for you to slide right off your plateau.

Best!

Someone posted: There is a saying in Tibetan that “at the door of the miserable rich man sleeps the contented beggar.” The point of this saying is not that poverty is a virtue, but that happiness does not come from wealth, but from setting limits to one’s desires, and living within those limits with satisfaction.

My comment: Hi All, I don't agree with "setting limits to one's desires" in general. Of course, if it means to not have desires which are negative (and that I mean in terms of universal values) then I agree. For whatever this might be worth, I would like to share something related that I wrote recently: http://www.healthfitnessindia.com/profiles/blogs/plateau-be-in-enjo... Best! Shakti Saran
