There are a few things I can’t do without, one is my morning meditation.
No, I don’t spend all morning in some crazy yoga pose—although I have a mean downward dog! To me, it’s not anything weird or mystical.
I take 10 minutes in the morning to get in a quiet place to ready myself for kids, work and any pressures of the day.
Normally I would jump out of bed like a wild man, now I start out in stillness. It helps me visualize how I want my day to unfold. It’s a game changer for me.
I often meditate on a scripture from the Bible. Other times, I just quiet my mind.
I like how David asks in the book of Psalms, “Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.”
Mediation should do that!
Search your inner-self, listen to the voice that directs you and get clear on your mission (see Creating Your Comeback Statement).
It’s an important practice on your way back from failure. You have to intentionally clear your mind of the clutter.
You have to get your mind ready, to get your mind right.
