Most think of meditation as a religious philosophy. There are many non-religious benefits that can be reached thru meditation.
First, choose the area of your life you want to focus, such as health, finances, relationship, career just to mention a few.
If you have no idea what to do, you first need to uncover your dream or stop resisting the one you already have.
Then you need to set goals. Set realistic goals. Start with an achievable goal, not one that is impossible. Set a time frame to achieve your goals. Divide the ultimate goal into several smaller goals, like stair steps. Small drops of water can fill a bucket. Complete the first goal before jumping to the second etc. Most important, write down your goals and outline your to do list including deadlines. Try your best to complete that work before the deadline. If you complete a big task before the deadline, reward yourself.
Dont let emotions effect reaching your goals. The energy of the mind will waste if scattered in different directions.
Look at how you actually spend your days. Are you focused and committed to everything you do? If so, that is great. If you are like most, you are waiting for something to happen, the right opportunity to come along, get more time, make more money, or perhaps meet the right person.
Each day is a gift. Act as if it is your last. Are you letting life just happen? Yesterday is history; you can never regain that time. Focus on what needs to be done now. Things will not always go your way. Eventually things will go wrong. It is how we react to the situation that is important. Learn from experience and move forward. By making these mistakes and learning from them, you will grow stronger. Your own failure would be not to learn and move forward to succeed.
Are you stuck and unsure how to make changes in your life?
This is your life. What do you really want to do with it?
With clear goals and constructive help, anything is possible.
