“Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thing was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming”.
Breakthrough Meditation Part 1
Take a few minutes to absorb the message above. Imagine how you could apply a piece of the message to your life, work, family, or athletic pursuits.
Focus your attention on your natural breath pattern, bringing your eyes to a soft gaze or closing your eyes.
Let the influx of thoughts flow in with a calm breath.
Thinking about the message, start to ask yourself what walls you might need to breakdown, and what changes you might want make? Why? What is stopping you? What are you demanding of yourself?
Listen as you let your mind flow without judgment.
As you go in deeper, continue to focus on your breath pattern as you begin to be more aware of the quality of your thoughts and your mental shifts.
Stay with this meditation for 10 minutes.
**Look forward to Part 2 of this meditation next Sunday.
