Mindfulness Training

Being in the present moment, knowing how to destress, decompress and undo a racing mind is a valuable tool to master.  When Forbes magazine asked some of the most successful and influential people of our time what their secret to success was, overwhelmingly the one practice that showed up on the list was mindfulness.  This came in many forms including meditation, prayer, stillness and gratitude. This practice costs nothing but offers everything...opening up an entire realm from which you can then operate peacefully and successfully. ~

Don’t reserve your best behavior for special occasions. You can’t have two sets of manners, two social codes—one for those you admire and want to impress, another for those whom you consider unimportant. You must be the same to all people.
