It’s not magic, it’s more like washing your face in the morning, the stretch you take before a long run. Meditation is a necessary part of fine-tuning your mind quieting the noise and focusing on the things that really matter. We all practice some form of meditation already, but what are we meditating on? Many of us spend a lifetime with our deepest and most time-consuming thoughts on worry, past failure, and resentment. It’s time to #MakeTheChange.

In Philippians 4:8 one of my favorite bible verses!, the author  Apostle Paul (possibly in jail) writes:

“whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

Paul gave us something exceptionally important (a major ) for the way in which we live our lives.  Why is meditating on good things so important? Simple,  because we are what we eat. The bible put’s it this way

 Proverbs 4:23 NIV

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Viktor Emil Frankl a famous neurologist, psychiatrist  and  Holocaust survivor, goes on to say:

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” – —Viktor Frankl


Q: How can we change ourselves?

A: Be honest with yourself, replacee the negative things in your mind with positive, pure & good things.

Please Note:  The above is easier said than done, staying positive can seem like a fight at first, but with practice and consistency you’ll be a champ in no time. 


 Joshua 1:8 (NIV)

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

The challenges we all face in life will not simply melt away like your favorite ice cream on a hot day. However, we are better equipped with meditation to focus in on our strategy to achieve success.

   Enjoy the journey
