Episode 128 – Become mindful in complete presence
“Enjoy this… we are in process, a constant evolution…”
I was speaking recently at a keynote event.
We had a mix of millennials and young parents in the room who were in need of some direction with enhancing their performance through finding rhythm.
I spoke about awareness, reflection and the need for the right environmental setup – be it the immediate physical environment and / or the people they hang around on a regular basis. As I was progressing through my discussion to help transform their mindsets, there came a turning point moment.
An overwhelming silence hit the room much like it feels at 5am before the sun rises.
We had a hit a wonderful moment together – a mix of,
- joyful silence
- sweet surrender and
- restful contentment.
It was complete presence. No longer was there angst, worry or distraction – there was an understanding. At that moment I felt the need to acknowledge our collective consciousness as “one.” We united to “enjoy this [state of being].”
When you summon a present state of being you move into a “place” with action potential – the mind is clear and you can move towards what you want to achieve.
You become the process required to succeed – the interaction itself.
Acting, failing, recalibrating and achieving….. then starting again… Acting, failing, recalibrating and achieving.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
Remember you are not permanent – You ARE a constant evolution – moving higher with each reiteration.
Read on below.
Whenever you want to make the change – you CAN!
Unite with the present to clear your mind of your limitations – then get your process started!
I’ll give you an example of this:
Have you ever got into the “zone” with your hobby, work or leisure activity to the point where you felt completely “jacked into” your activity? Like you didn’t exist and your creativity / subconscious was taking over on autopilot?!
Athletes will talk about this all the time when big moments occur in a game. They’ll say something like, “everything went out of focus except my goal and the pathway towards the goal. Time slowed down, all I could experience was the sound of my breathing and the sight of the whole thing unfold in front of me in the moment.”
Same thing will happen to artists, musicians and performers – it all just, “unfolds in front” of them like they themselves are watching part of the “show.”
This is what it means to be to unite with the present and clear your mind of limitations.
Find your “process” and dominate your evolution.
