Excuse me, is that a bird’s nest in your hair?


“The birds of worry and care fly above your head, this you cannot change.  But that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent.” Chinese Proverb

In addition to meditation, simple stretching is another way to access relief from the stresses associated with owning your own company.

There is a stream of business, when everything is developing and prospering naturally. Occasionally you may come up against rocks and obstacles you need to divert around, but there’s no reason for flow to stop or for you to be so stressed out you are not taking care of yourself!

If we allow the anxiety and pressure of being an entrepreneur to take hold of our minds and our bodies, it will affect our well-being, efficiency, and ultimately our attitude about our business.

When we are strong enough to take hold of these anxieties, the results are immeasurable. Staying attuned to our core-highest-stress-free-self results in sustainable and fulfilling business results!

One way of saying “no” to stress, is taking a few minutes out of each workday to stretch at your desk or wherever you may be working. When you stop and stretch, doing so will improve your circulation and the amount of oxygen to your brain; thus your attitude, creativity, thoughts, intention and concentration are more under your conscious control.

It is a given when you begin to focus on your business, the stream will expand in all kinds of ways – new clients, new ideas, flowing money – and of course, more things “to-do”.

By incorporating pausing & stretching into your routine, you are taking control of the stress side of things .

Pro-actively keeping the banks of your stream (your mind, body, spirit, as well as your strategic intention) strong will help you to gracefully manage and allow the inevitable grace of expanded abundance and gifts coming your way.

Act from Energy

Mind  always thinks in terms of purpose, profit, utility.

images-26When mind disappears, action does not disappear, activity disappears –and there is a great difference between the two.

Activity has utility; action is pure joy, pure beauty.

You act not because something has to be achieved; you act because action is a dance, is a song.

You act because you are so full of energy ~Osho

Meditation = Happier Wealth

Incorporating a meditation into your business strategy enables you to freely turn your conscious focus inward, stop the reactive, egoic-mind from running the show, and tap into resources that help you feel present and connected to your higher vision.

By improving your inner landscape, meditation helps you to respond to external events with more awareness and clarity, and hence, change the business results that you deliver over time.

Recently, I asked a successful finance director, who has been incorporating meditation into his business life for several years now, his own experience of the benefits of committing to a meditative practice.

Along with some expected benefits:

-Being un-rattled by issues arising when things seem to be going wrong.

-Ability to be present, to observe, not to engage in negative emotion, not because I am suppressing it – but genuinely because I do not need to go there anymore.

He also offered up the most yummy, juicy benefit:

I am happier! … AND what is a surprise – now becoming wealthier! …. Meditation energy is the type of energy that lets the stuff you no longer want go and allows in the new good stuff ….

I had to drop my old ways of doing business which worked financially, but were not based around happiness. So I had to drop some old ways of thinking – including with it ways that made money – without knowing how I was going to make a new way work financially. When you realize you want to do that, that’s a ‘Gulp’ moment! 

But when you have your own heart on your side, well that’s alignment, and things you cannot foretell start to engage, to happen and you get there.

How perfect is that –well said Richard!
