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.

We become faceless. It started a couple of decades ago with forums, where people were writing whatever they wanted. They would argue, use bad names, whatever, and I can guarantee, many of them would not even have a back bone to say it in person...

My Grandma said, “Greedy man is paying twice, and lazy man is doing twice.”  It was a nice catch phrase for a long while, until I got into my own business. How true this statement is! When I was getting busy, I would still try to do everything that was necessary, and sometimes I would cut some corners. You know what? Eventually I had to pay more for my own laziness in one form or another...

Have you ever tried to communicate a message to somebody, and then realized that people don’t hear you? In general, people don’t care about what you offer and what you know. Until they know it can help them and you care.

You know what makes us all so different? Nothing! We are the same. We are humans. Why don’t we just start acting accordingly, love and respect each other?

Have you ever been hit by life? I mean hard. I mean when it takes some time for you to even catch your breath after life knocks you down. I certainly have. And it is not fun when somebody pretending to be your friend, kicks you full force below the belt, metaphorically speaking, of course. What happens then?

Loving your subject and even having passion about it has nothing to do with the ability to teach, whether 1-on-1 or in groups. It is not about what you say, it is about what they hear...

Many years ago my mom said to me, “Unloaded gun shoots once a year.” At that time I did not pay much attention to it. I wish I did. But the older I grow, the more I realize that’s true. And not just about the gun...

Jim Rohn said, “Success is something you attract by the person you become.” 
According to John Maxwell, Everything rises and falls on leadership. And leadership can be developed...

It’s so easy to love the whole World, isn’t it? When everything is going great. When life is good, even negative people become positive. Everybody’s smiling, hugging each other and singing Kumbaya. But what if the World around you begins to crumble?

I truly believe that ability to give is the one of the highest forms of blessing the man can receive. God gives us a chance. He thinks we still got enough goodness in us to share with others, in spite of all of our mistakes and failures.

I was listening to my coach a while ago, and he said something I have to agree with. Any success, whether in business, personal life, sports or even martial arts for that matter, is a result of a competition. He clarified that for us. Success is not about me competing against somebody...

You see, for as long as I can remember, we had some fortune tellers, who were predicting various major catastrophic events. In fact, at some point it became really popular. It seemed like there was always somebody making predictions about the end of the World.

If I am stuck in traffic, there’s nothing I can do about that. It won’t make any difference even if I get furious. For me, instead of getting anxious, I started implementing these three things..

As I am working on my Stress Reduction online course, I thought of one skill I acquired as a kid. Perhaps that skill helped me to be straight “A” student at school. Or maybe because of that skill I stuck with Martial Arts, Taoist Yoga and Qigong for over 30 years. No, no, I am not the sharpest knife in the draw, trust me. But I developed this ability to say what I think is one of the most important words in my life. I will teach you that right now...

We just become experts in that particular Path. We run it so smooth, until life takes unexpected turn. Then we either run full speed into the wall, or completely get off the Path, or stumble upon unexpected obstacle and fall...

Are we helping our kids to become responsible adults or are we building a wall by reprimanding them for their mistakes?

I learned from my coach, that success comes in CANs, and failure comes in CANNOTs. Think about it. Whatever you  may be doubting, like “Can I?” Yes, you can. Will you? Only you can answer that.

There’s no success that comes out of great ideas. There’s no success that comes out glorifying our own intelligence. The most genius ideas won’t work unless we do.

We are not paying attention to the present moment. And I am guilty too. And once we notice the change, it may be already too late. So we push ourselves into changes trying to maintain the equilibrium. And we often overdo.

Dream is extremely important, all right! It’s number one on the list. But we often start paying too much attention to it. We think in global categories, and we often forget, and I will quote John Maxwell, “… dream is free, but the journey is not.” It does require daily work...

However, precision calibrated mindset does not have room for errors. And this is how I was growing up. Everything had to be absolutely perfect! And if it was not, then it was a sloppy job. That would irritate me and seriously undermine my self esteem. My ego told me that everything I did had to be perfect...
