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.

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...

We create artificial patterns for ourselves, we stick to those pattern, and we call life boring. Life is like music: every day is so different even though it may be using the same scale.

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.

Whatever you say and think is funny, other person’s subconscious mind will take as a new reality. Mindfulness has no moral judgment, and it may work both in constructive and destructive mode.

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?”

Remember the story about Ugly Duckling. How do our kids form their belief system? From their immediate environment, their parents first of all.

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!

We are known as analytical, self-disciplined, and very organized. We follow instructions. And we are very compliant, in most of the cases at least. We like to plan everything, and there’s no detail too small to be given a considerable amount of time for planning.

Phlegmatics are known as steady personality. We may be a bit slow, so please stop running circles around us waiting for the answer. It may take a while before we give it to you, but it will be well thought out.

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”.

if we know strengths and weaknesses of people we are dealing with, we can give them roles where they can maximize the use of their strength. It will benefit you, and most important, it will benefit them.

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?

As I said before, I’ve been in martial arts, yoga and similar studies for over 3 decades. I used to jog years ago, and sometimes I go to the gym. Besides that I’ve owned several businesses along the way, and have embarked on numerous projects. So I qualify to talk on this subject, but also I observed and listened to other people, and I read some books about that. I believe, the hardest step you’ll ever take on your Mindful Journey is...

I remember my teacher said, 10 years later you will be 10 years older whether you practice or not. Today, looking back at those years, I can assure you, that 33 years later I am 33 years older. So my teacher was right, ha ha! 
One thing that helps me to keep going with training is a mindset that...

Have you ever been reprimanded by somebody? Like your parents or boss? Have you ever had to reprimand somebody?
I’ve been on both sides of the fence. And I’ll be honest, I don’t like either one. But I’ve also seen people who could hit you really hard, but it was almost pleasant. Like a massage for the ego. So today I will talk about the art of reprimand.

My coach told me, “Stop asking yourself a question, Can I do it?” Because our brain may answer not in a way that will benefit us. Instead, I am asking myself a question, “How can I do it?”

I am sure most of you have heard a saying, “When in Rome, Do as Romans Do.” In Russian we have a saying, when living with wolves, howl like one. It basically means the same: blend in with traditions of the place where you live. But have you thought about the flip side of this famous statement?..

Communication is so crucial for any business and for personal life. So unless you plan to move to the desert island, I’d suggest you learn how to to connect to people. And here’s a skill I found to be the most crucial when I am talking to people. That skill is…

Last time I started talking about communication mistakes I’ve made. Today we have another one, and it’s a biggie. Oh yeah! The question is, how important am I? Especially if I study a lot, get more degrees than a thermometer. Gosh, I’m smart. For sure I have to be leading the conversation. Right? Not quite.

When I was growing up, I had never been a popular kid. Total introvert, homebody, a certifiable nerd. I won’t go into full story today, but you can imagine that even in such a slow pace 20th century, relating to people was the hardest thing for me. I had straight “A’s” at school, and I read every book I could find in the library on a subject I was studying at the university. But I did not have any friends. Do you know anybody like that?

To become successful, I need to grow myself, but I need to have a self esteem before I invest into my education, but self esteem comes out of success. You see how it circles around? Not easy to break out! Trust me, I’ve been there too!..

I was listening to John Maxwell, and later I bought his book, called “15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”. In this book he’s talking about number one law responsible for any kind of success, whether financial, business, spiritual or personal. That is the Law of...
