Spoke 7: Feel the power of stopping through meditation.

As a busy professional, it feels like you’re always running late, rushing to the next meeting, planning the next step, or the next ten steps. When was the last time you just stopped, sank into your chair, did some mindful breathing, and meditated?

Radical concept, I know. But an important one. The endless demands of professional routine make your life more about doing, and less about being. Both are necessary for true success.

Meditation is transformative. You do not know the value of true calm and that resulting heightened awareness until you’ve felt it for yourself. My friends say I’m a totally different person now: balanced, patient, clear and decisive. Meditation has brought me so much more visionary thinking in my career than I ever thought possible.

In Reinvent the Wheel I invite you to discover the positive personal outcomes of mindful meditation for yourself. If you can’t remember the last time you stopped to just be with your beautiful breath, take it from me, you don’t know what you’re missing.
