Meditate and grow

By virtue of being human, each of us has the capacity to
choose, to change, to grow.”

Today I was thinking how meditation can help to grow spiritually ,mentally ,professionally . Most of us cannot help comparing ourselves with others, at least now and then. In fact, this has become so entrenched today that in order to have self-esteem, it seems almost necessary to say, “I am better than he is, so I am good.” As long as we compete with each other and compare one with another, a certain amount of envy is inescapable. However envy can escalate a lot of negative thoughts and this can damage our idealism of growing therefore the need to meditate is sought. The aim of   meditations is to bring inner peace within
our self and the world in a positive and spiritual way. The world is not a peaceful place and within every soul there is some form of tension and stress. It is therefore essential to create positive and peaceful thoughts to bring peace to our mind. Meditation is one of the best methods to bring about transformation and nurture the natural qualities within. At the start of each day (or the night before) highlight the three or four most important things you have to do in the coming day.  Do them first.  If you get nothing else accomplished aside from your MITs, you’ve still had a pretty productive day. Don’t plan out everything you need to do to finish what you had into your plan ,for the sake of it , just focus on the very next thing you need to do to move it forward. Usually doing the next, little thing will lead to another, and another, until we’re either done or we run into a block: we need more information, we need someone else to catch up, etc. Be as concrete and discrete as possible: you can’t “install cable”, all you can do is “call the cable ompany to request cable installation.
