Now I’m sure at this point in life you’ve heard plenty about meditation, it’s all over the mainstream.
It’s been popularized, branded, and rebranded over and over again.
And while it’s such an important practice, it’s almost never getting used in the right way.
I say that because I hear this all the time:
-“If I just had more time to meditate, I would”
-“I always lose focus and end up wasting time”
-“I can’t quiet the thoughts in my head, it’s not working”
-“I’m just not built for meditation.”
It may feel like that sometimes but in reality we’re all built for meditation, you just haven’t been given the right tools to make it work the way it’s supposed to.
And okay, I’ll admit, early on it may feel like a struggle...
...and that’s kind of the point.
If it were really that quick to master, everyone would be doing it and I wouldn’t be known as “MeditationDave” on Instagram, I’d just be Dave...regular old Dave... (but less about me, let’s talk about you).
While it would be some work, the benefits of learning meditation the right way would be life altering.
But what does that actually mean, “the right way”?
The act of meditation itself is the sharpening of the mind: the ability to direct your focus and keep it there.
We’ll dive a little deeper into the “how” later, but all in all, the meditation you’ve been experiencing is the equivalent to surface level conversation—it may be pleasant and calming but you’re not getting the full benefits of a deep connection with yourself.
So when I say that you’re able to get the most out of life, to achieve, to connect deeper with others, it really stems from connecting more deeply with yourself.
And if I told you when meditation is introduced the right way to you, all of that is possible and more, would you believe me?
While it might not seem that easy, that’s the absolute truth.
And along with that truth comes another about our minds:
