Have you ever leaped into something, heart first without thinking of what might happen? Yep, me too. And now I am in the middle of building something out of nothing and I am finding each day brings yet a new challenge. Which is ok, I love the climb, but I also have discovered I need a way to anchor myself, to find my center in a world full of chaos.
I just read where entrepreneurs are more likely to meditate and pray. I wonder why? Does the stress of starting a business drive someone to his or her knees or lotus position? In my case I would have to say yes. I think those of us who take risks have a strong sense they can take matters into our own hands, but we also face risk, unpredictability and uncertainty. I know prayer and meditation are important in my daily life. Both of these practices allow me to face the reality that there is so much in life I have no control over. Actually almost everything.
If you haven’t started a mediation practice, go to my free stuff icon on this site, and download a quick ten to twenty minute practice. Shoot me an email and let me know how you are doing. Start with five minutes and work up to twenty. Just start today, now, no excuses.
