The Practice of Your Future Potential

Welcome kindred spirit, before we begin let's bring awareness to why you were drawn to this topic.

How does your body feel when you reflect on your future potential?

What emotions come to the surface?

What beliefs do you have surrounding your future?

What stories do you tell yourself and others about this?

How will being mindful about your future potential help support your day-to-day life?

With a deep exhale bring a gentle awareness that others are feeling similar about this topic as you.

Let Begin

In this practice, I’ll share how mindfulness can help you become however you WANT to be, Rather than simply reacting to the stressors of work, news, and responsibilities.

By now,

you’re probably feeling a little more comfortable with a mindfulness practice,

And you may also feel the potential of what mindfulness can do for you.

For example,

What would it be like if you weren’t worried about work or your bills?

Or feeling overwhelmed all the time?

or feeling tired from all of your tasks?

What if, instead of feeling overwhelmed, bored, or stressed,

you were able to step back and say, oh, okay.

That’s overwhelm.

Or, oh, okay, that’s worry.

Okay, that’s just stress.

I got this.

RATHER THAN feeling as though you’re in the middle of it all

Instead….. just recognize that it's OK,

And that’s just a thought or that’s just a feeling.

For some of you, that may sound weird, and you may well think

“Yeah, but you don’t know MY crazy situation”.

And you’re right. I don’t.

But remember,

It’s really important to see

that this practice of mindfulness takes time for change to happen

but change does happen.

And for people who are successful at what they do,

it’s a habit of a lifetime

.. Or at least a habit of a good few years.

We’re not just talking about doing better

Or feeling less stressed.

This is about living on your own terms.

This is about choosing how awake and present you want to be for the life you’re living right now.

This is about enhancing your presence, your wisdom, your compassion,

And your effect on the world inside of you and outside of you

To the absolute best of your ability.

Every time you realize you’re distracted and you’re taking the time to acknowledge it,

something is changing not only in thoughts and consciousness but also in the brain itself.

If you experience stress, overwhelm, or anxiety a lot,

then it will be really uncomfortable and you’ll probably want to get as far away from it as possible and that’s understandable,

but it’s also really important to acknowledge that you can’t stop all anxiety.

Everyone’s tried it. It doesn’t work.

What you CAN do, is develop a different type of relationship to it,

where you eventually feel at ease with it, and potentially can even start to embrace it

as a way of further understanding the mind.

So as you move through your day today, remember that idea of being aware,

simply being aware, being present for the sensations in your body.

Whenever you remember to do this, it’s quite an amazing thing because all of a sudden you’re actually present.

Again, it’s as though you cut the negative feedback loop.

You step out of the loop of thinking, which fuels the emotions of stress and overwhelm,

and instead, you’re actually present with your body and what you’re doing.

Thank you for practicing your future potential.
