Question: How does one overcome one’s reluctance to run?

Sri Chinmoy: We have to practise self-discipline if we want to become an instrument of God. It is by doing something, by becoming something — not necessarily something great or famous — that we can overcome our reluctance. It is through movement — which is progress — and achieving — which is another type of progress — that we can overcome reluctance. In order to overcome reluctance, we have to have a goal; and if we have a goal, then we have to try to reach that goal. Then only can we overcome reluctance and become an instrument of God.
