  1. 1. A Balanced Life Mind and Body
  2. 2. Who am I - originally from Florence, Tuscany (Italy) - living for 30 years in Finland - degree in Electronic Engineering - degree in International Business and Marketing Management - over 20 years of international business experience - for the last 3 years a business angel and angel investor - strategic and visionary thinker - believer in true Leadership - customer and results oriented - human being - I am following Buddhism more about me on www.linkedin.com/in/gianlucacioletti www.facebook.com/gianlucacioletti
  3. 3. Why Buddhism? The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description – Albert Einstein Buddhism is all about me and myself! The goal is to reach Nirvana => Enlightenment => or just Inner Peace and Happiness  How to reach the inner balance and the inner peace?
  4. 4. The Mind All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become – The Buddha Buddhism is more than a religion, it's a science of mind – His Holiness The Dalai Lama Buddhism is logical and rational thinking! => it is how to control the mind We train ourselves, our muscles….. => Why not train the MIND? So, how we train the mind?
  5. 5. Meditation You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour – old Zen saying Usually we do mistakes when our mind is not stable. In Buddhism, Meditation is the “vehicle” to train the mind and to reach a balanced state of mind! But what is Meditation and why we should Meditate? http://www.ineedmotivation.com/blog/2008/05/100-benefits-of-meditation/
  6. 6. How to Meditate If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever ― Dalai Lama Analytical Meditation => Reflecting on what I have been doing / saying and why? Single Point Meditation => Focusing, Concentration => figure of Buddha, breathing, heart beats, music Mindfulness Meditation => Awareness
  7. 7. Wisdom When you think everything is someone else’s fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy ― Dalai Lama Cause and Condition => Effect => Karma Some reading: The Leader’s Way – His Holiness The Dalai Lama The Art Of Happiness – His Holiness The Dalai Lama The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari – Robin Sharma
  8. 8. “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” “Doubt everything. Find your own light.” The Buddha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmz9kAEiTSc _/_ Thanks _/_
