Have you jumped on the meditation bandwagon yet? And if you haven’t, should you? Let me share with you an argument for why meditation can be your secret business strategy weapon that will have your competitors weeping in your dust.
For those of you who have poo-pooed meditation up to this point in your life, let’s go over the basics.
Back in 2013, I lived through a year of debilitating anxiety – a.k.a. 24/7 panic attacks. I allowed some circumstances going on outside of me to completely control my thoughts and emotions, resulting in so much stress that it turned into anxiety. It was terrible, to say the least.
I had multiple loved ones encouraging me to get on a medication to ease the constant stress. After working with my doctor, he suggested a different route to try first. Enter: Meditation.
He explained to me that the medication would help with the side effects of the anxiety, but not get to the root of the issue causing the anxiety. He encouraged me to do the work to stop being anxious. An insider game.
I can still remember laying on the ground in our walk in closet, a full on panic attack gripping my chest, and needing to leave in 20 minute for a friends house. As I laid there, i started a guided meditation. And for the first time, experienced some relief from the death grip around my lungs. It didn’t last long, but it had happened, and I now knew with practice, I could dig out the poisonous thoughts and emotions that had been buried within me causing this chronic stress.
Are there aspects of your life or business that cause you to go into over-stressed mode? Do you know what happens when our bodies and minds are on that high-stress alert and how that affects our businesses?
Does this sound like any fun to you?
Well, it doesn’t. Not exactly. It’s what you do during meditation that is the game changer.
If you commit to prioritizing 30 minutes, three times per week to meditation, some radical changes would occur.
So, should you meditate? Well, there’s literally zero downsides to meditation. It’s great for your health. It’s great for your mental sanity. Therefore, it’s great for your business. Oh, and I promise you your competitors are not doing this.
