Meditation helps you see the world clearly. It can be a muddy world out there with all the different messages floating towards you from society, family, government, and your own crazy mind. But when you meditate, all of that peripheral stuff drops off. Everything becomes clearer. Life becomes less muddy. Your path is lit up showing you the way.
Meditation Helped Me Decide To Quit Corporate
When I decided to quit my job to start my business, I did it because I had been consistently meditating for the year before that point, and I couldn’t hide from the truth anymore. The truth being, I was unhappy serving and building other people’s dreams and I wanted to start something of my own based on my dreams and vision.
At that point, I didn’t realize how much my meditation practice would help me in my entrepreneurial journey as well.
To be perfectly honest, an entrepreneur’s life is hard and not for everyone. It’s full of ups and downs, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. There are so many pitfalls, and blackholes to deal with. Some days you are excited to be alive and working on your dreams. Other days you feel so foolish for giving up a comfortable corporate existence to start your own thing.
It requires a different breed of human to deal with the atrocities put upon by this entrepreneurial life. But something that helps quite a bit on the journey is holding a steady, consistent meditation practice.
