3 Ways in Which Meditative Practices Can Help You Grow Your Business
What is meditation?
From the outside looking in, meditation is a practice of sitting in silence. Your silence, not the silence of others. Accomplishing this provides you with loads of patience, dedication and focus.
From the inside looking in, meditation is about observing one’s mind and one’s thoughts. Its NOT about letting go, its not about quieting your mind. Quieting your mind is impossible if there is noise and you try to fight that noise. It only creates more noise.
Instead you must separate from your thoughts and observe them from a distance. In Buddhism, we call this observer/observed.
You detach your self from your thoughts (observed) and observe them from a distance. This create awareness of your awareness.
How does this help you in business?
Being aware of your thoughts, emotions (good or bad) and understanding where they come from will allow you to act in accordance with your larger purpose; as opposed to be swayed by the moment.
Finally, meditation is NOT about meditation. Its about taking that awareness into your every day life.
