Morning Mindfulness - Two Positive Minutes to Start Your Day

This podcast is about mindfulness. No, no, no, not about just sitting and doing nothing and emptying your mind. That is not mindfulness, that would be mindlessness. But we are talking about mindfulness. It is about being in the moment. It is about paying attention. It is about nonjudgmental attitude. It is about awareness. It is about making wiser decisions.

There’s an old story about stone of knowledge sitting in the ground by the intersection of two roads. Many people were walking by. Two women began to cry when they saw the stone.

Many years ago I was watching a kid’s fairly tale on TV, and one interesting phrase got stuck in my mind. The guy said, “Don’t be afraid of those who speak without thinking, but be afraid of those who think without speaking”.

Dwelling on the past is like trying to drive your car while staring in the rear view mirror. It won’t take you far ahead. It may get you off the road instead. In fact, people who look back all the time, most likely will go backwards in life.

John Maxwell said, “The secret to your success can be found in your daily routine”. So what you and I do on daily basis, which is our habits, will determine how successful we become.

I believe that we create our own world with our beliefs. I believe that numbers really mean nothing without our beliefs. Many of those signs come to reality not because a magic number turned out to be true, but because we set expectations...

Many years ago I read a book by famous Bagua master Park Bok Nam. And in his book he’s talking about interesting concept. He suggested to be aware of four points in our training career, and those are 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months and 3 years. And I understand that timing is not that precise, but the whole concept made total sense to me.

So these are 3 things I’ve observed in good leaders or teachers.
1 - They've done what they are talking about. This is teaching from experience, not from books. John Maxwell said, never speak on electives in your life. Only speak about what you live...

I’ve heard many times a statement from a leadership guru John Maxwell.
He said, “Everything rises and falls on leadership”. When I heard it I realized what was the reason for some of my greatest mishaps. Even if I did not see myself in a leadership position, in fact I was.

I’ve learned a couple of things along the way. And one of them is the statement that people don’t care how much I know until they know how much I care. And that comes dow to a famous acronym WIIFM, which stands for “What’s In It For Me?”

I’ve heard many times people talking about the Second Chance in life. Somebody might’ve screwed up in life really bad, and now they have a chance to make things right. They say, “I’ve got the second chance”. I know quite a few people who’ve been through some really tough times. I’ve been through some really tough times. Oh yeah, I can write a book about that. However, I don’t believe in second chances. Let me explain what I mean.

It took me a while to learn the difference between excellence and perfection. And here’s one thing I’d like to mention today. Did you know that a flying missile is off about 95% of the time? That’s right! The missile that has a very precise target is 95% failing!

Fast paced and people oriented are those we call sanguine. They love having fun, and they love to party. If there’s no party around, they will make one. They are very easy to communicate with. They don’t know the word “stranger”.

My friend, I meet so many people talking about love, forgiveness, acceptance of the past. And that sounds so wonderful, until… they have to give somebody gift of love at their own expense. What happens to their graciousness then?
