“Meditation is woowoo,” I said.
I tried it. It changed my life. Now I teach it.
Why do some of the world's most successful business people meditate twice daily?
Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Ray Dalio, Jerry Seinfeld, Joe Rogan, Katy Perry all make meditation a daily practice...
I have found so much benefit in meditation that I became a meditation teach to pay forward the profound impact it's had on my life and business.
Before I started meditating 2 years ago, I was up shit creek...
I was stressed out, burnt out, blind to my business gaps, I was terrible with communication, I was arrogant, scattered, poor at making decisions, low on energy and in a financial heap, I had daily headaches and the relationships closest to me were falling apart, not to mention that I was completely unfulfilled...
After investing over $500,000 in coaches, seminars and courses over the last 5-ish years, I learnt to meditate for only $800 and realised that most of what I had spent my time learning, now needed to be unlearned (go-figure) 🤬
I thought that meditating was going to give me another gold star and a spicy addition to my PD resume. But, oh was I blind to think that meditation was simply going to "Alleviate stress" haha.
Meditation put me on the most challenging and steepest growth trajectories I have ever been on in my entire life! (They really should get you to sign a waiver)
It's not for the faint-hearted. Only those into serious growth. With the grit and resilience of a lion.
The benefits of meditation:
-Increase productivity and focus
-Improving decision making
-Fostering deep and grounded confidence
-Improving communication and people skills
-Creating greater perceptive awareness
-Significantly boosting fulfilment
-Expanded capacity to handle more
As growth centred individuals, the degree to which you can obtain those benefits, determines the speed and reliability in which you can grow!
The problem is that as a society we are 2 things;
2. Too busy
This quote says it best:
"I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one." - Mahatma Gandhi
The funny thing is that we usually don't do the thing that we need most.
For example: When we are emotional, we watch TV or eat poorly instead of getting up and exercising.
