The gift
of the
east is
the
ability
to
accept
things.
The gift
of the
west is
the

Is your mind like a shaken snow globe?
(you’re in the right place)
Mindfulness is
the practice of
bringing
clarity and
concentration
to your
moment-by-
moment
experience.
It’s the ability to see what’s happening...
Not as we hoped it would be.
Not as we expected it to be.
Not seeing more or l...
…but exactly what is here.
Just as it is.

You can’t make
good decisions
in a mental
state of
frenzy
worry
anger or
frustration.
Since your choices create your reality...
…you need to own them.
Accepting your experience as it is
allows you to respond versus react.
Step One
Know
Your Mind
1
Why do we
react emotionally
in the first place?
Three words: fight or flight
Prefrontal cortex
(the boss)
Left Brain
(logic)
Right Brain
(emotion)
Sorry, ladies.
Mindfulness calms your biological triggers
(allowing you to make better decisions as a result)
Because when the **** hits the fan…
…you need to be on your game THE MOST.
The ultimate measure of a man is
not where he stands in moments of
comfort and convenience, but
where he stands at times o...
Once you
become
self-aware,
you can
help others
do the
same.
Step Two
Train
Your Mind
2
The events of your life do
not change according to
whether you are happy or
unhappy about them.
Purposeful pauses allow you to
center into the moment.
Are you content?
Are you emotional?
Are you fearful?
Are you future...
Purposeful pauses bring you
back to the present where you
can choose your response.
In the process,
be on the lookout
for emotion…
…but don’t run from it.
Where am I
focusing
right now?
Taming the monkey mind:
Thinking vs. Thoughting
Is it true? Is it useful?
Step Three
Settle
Your Mind
3
If the cause of THIS is uncertainty…
WHAT IF
we put more focus on things that don’t change?

Virtues are your rock.
Intentions live in “the space”.
Tough to live with ‘em.
Tough to live without ‘em.
Be fully attached to the effort.
And less attached to the result.
Every interaction is a touchpoint.
The sum total of your touchpoints =
your reputation
Reputation = Opportunities
Being clear on what matters
most is the filter for
values-based decisions.
