Did you know people like Phil Jackson, Russell Simmons, Ray Dalio and Rupert Murdock meditate daily?
Oprah, Steve Jobs (RIP), Deepak Chopra, Bill Ford, Arianna Huffington, Padsmaree Warrior and many others also have daily practices of meditation.
What are they getting out of it? How does it help them be successful?
First off, you can imagine that these are seriously stressed people. Meditating helps you recharge your batteries and regain energy. More energy= more productivity.
Second, when your mind is calm, you can find solutions easier. Imagine this metaphor: Your mind is like a lake and solutions are found at the bottom of it. When the waters are turbulent, you can’t see the bottom. You need to calm the waters to see the bottom crystal clear. Calm mind= better skills to solve problems and more creativity.
Third, after being in stillness you feel more hope and compassion and can gain perspective into any situation. Stillness= better relationship with people= better leadership.
In short, meditation helps improve your creativity, productivity and leadership skills.
