When you see or hear the word “Meditation” what springs to mind?

For me, whenever I read the word ‘meditation’ there’s an immediately insatiable urge to take a long, deep breath. And, I do it.

It’s a good thing.

The power of daily meditation cannot be understated. It’s a way of developing an easily accessible super-power.

With great respect to the exponential power of daily meditation and why it’s like going to the gym for your mind, today I am sharing with you three things:

1 What is meditation?

You can’t understand someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.

A robot cannot understand or practice empathy, yet. Are you an empath, or do you sense how others feel?

You are not a robot. AI (Artificial Intelligence) and robots are coming to compete for your livelihood.

Robots are already doing tasks once completed by humans. This is increasing because of its economic benefits to companies that require profit to grow.

You are human. We are humans, and we have amazing capabilities that artificial intelligence…

Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics — Victor Pinchuk

Releasing creativity empowers you to shift from consumer to creator. Once you begin to create value you will begin exchanging this value for money. It’s a resource to use as you choose. We could all dedicate more…

To Die Today?

My frown reflects like deep emptiness mocking me from another dimension.

Stained sparingly with splatters of escaped toothpaste, the bathroom mirror reveals a broken spirit.

Who is that sorry excuse of a man staring back from the stained glass?

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths — Etty Hillesum

How much time and energy do you allocate to building self-awareness?

Self-care is a catalyst influencing our levels of self-awareness, and increasing self-awareness is critical because it is the powerful foundation of self-mastery—specifically, powerful mind-mastery and mental wealth.

By repeating…

Will you accept this ultimate challenge?

What’s the worst that can happen? Seriously?

You must.

It’s your duty.

Well, to be fair it’s your choice. Choose wisely my friend. Creating leaders is the most important purpose of leadership.

Leadership is more than you. It’s more than the ego. You create ‘we’. ‘We’ creates ‘us’. By creating…

(before, during and after leading others)

Why is self-leadership critical before, during and after leading others?

  1. You’ll become a much better leader.
  2. You’ll have much better mental health.
  3. Your team(s) will have much better mental health.

There’s only one growth strategy: work hard — William Hague

Strategy builds confidence, because you have a solid framework and action plan of what to do and, more importantly, what not to do. With clarity comes power, and with power is strength. You’ll gain mental strength, because you’ll know exactly what you’re focused on and why.

It’s like a pilot plotting a course to their destination. Careful and strategic planning is considered before take-off. Safety, weather, weight, fuel, and other variables come into play. For example, a pilot is skilled in the technical aspects of flying…

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest — Benjamin Franklin

Learning how to learn better builds knowledge and wisdom therefore creating intrinsic motivation for lifelong learning.

Learning is important because we don’t know what we don’t know. Once you know you know, you know? By learning something new we build confidence because our understanding deepens. Like plant roots growing longer and stronger as it receives…
