No, I didn’t spell that incorrectly.
Pronounced ALL-in, it is an expression of immense depth that conveys intense and immediate movement. Stemming from the ancient Nahuatl language, Ollin is derived from “yollotl,”meaning heart, and “yolistli,” meaning life. Ollin means to move and act now with all your heart (Taken from Kevin Hall’s book Aspire).
Take inventory of your current situations, are you moving and acting with all your heart in your faith? Your relationships? Your career? Your finances? Your health?
If you are, great! But if you are like me, I know I could go Ollin in more than one of those categories. If you are just getting started taking control of your life, pick one. Pick the most important area to you, in my case it is my faith, and go Ollin. Start there, the others will follow suit.
“When we view our path with clarity, we move with clarity, we move with a full and committed heart.” -Kevin Hall
It’s all about progress – pro means forward and gress means to move. To progress is to move forward. It isn’t going to be easy, nothing worthwhile is. But don’t let FEAR stop you.
“FEAR is nothing more than False Emotions Appearing Real – fear of failure, and fear of success can be overcome by firmly placing one foot after another with unswerving position and steadfast resolution.” – Kevin Hall
Act as if it were impossible to fail: What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
- What calls to me? What energizes me? What makes me feel I’m at my best?
When we decide what it is we are willing to suffer for, and what we are equally willing to act on, the world opens up for us. Find out what you are willing to suffer for, then go OLLIN!
Be great, nothing else pays.
