steve jobs, mindfulness and you

It is all about believing in yourself. When you feel good about yourself, you can do what you want to. You go out into the world fearlessly knowing you will be making a difference in the world. And on any level – globally or locally. The magnitude is immaterial. It is the intent, purpose and getting out there.

believing in yourself

When you believe in yourself, you are singing from the treetops for all to hear. And, you are dancing around the house (in your pjs) full of excitement, creativity, and confidence. You are mindful of who you are and the role you play in this world. Each and every day you want to get up with a skip in your step. You feel empowered believing you can change the world. Love this from Steve Jobs: ‘those people who are crazy enough to believe they can change the world are the ones that actually do.

how to be one of those crazy people?

It is all about being mindful. Learning meditation exercises to connect you to you. Taking the time to cut through the crap that goes on in your head. Because it does out of your awareness. You become so used to thinking and seeing yourself in a certain way. It is habitual. Unless you take the time to have a good look at how you perceive yourself, you won’t make the changes you want to make in the world.

It is not about becoming a Steve Jobs or anyone like him. It is about becoming you. And he used mindfulness to support him all through his life. That is what you have in common. And what you will also have in common is making a difference in people’s lives. That is what this is all about. As human beings (or doings), we all want to make a difference in some form or other.

what to do

Create the time to sit quietly and be with yourself. Find a sacred space to do so. Make a date with yourself and put it in your diary as you would any other appointment. And stick to it. It is so easy to postpone, cancel, and procrastinate when you are unsure what to do and how. And God forbid taking time for yourself. Just do it. Now! Take the time to stop and breathe. To connect to your mind. It is powerful, beautiful, intuitive and yours.

To quote Steve Jobs‘If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things–that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.” (Biographer Walter Isaacson)

Take the time

If he can take the time, so can you. All you need to do is close your eyes and listen to your inner chatter. You will discover that there are so many benefits to meditation other than stilling your mind. Read here to find out more.
