Using Qigong and Intention to Cultivate More Gratitude

“Using Qigong and Intention to Cultivate More Gratitude” “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~ R.W Emerson Gratitude is something which we here a so much about, and is definitely a buzz word in the personal development circles. It’s not however something we hear too often in the peak performance coaching industry. It’s common knowledge that when we’re feeling good and we’re having fun that we perform at a higher level. When we’re stressed out or tense our bodies are flooded with an overload of cortisol and our performance dwindles. Gratitude is one of the fastest ways to flow that I’ve found. Time and time again I’ve found that simply being grateful for what we have can induce a state […]

Meditation as Contemplation: Struggling to Meditate? Try this Simple Reframe

Meditation as Contemplation: Struggling to Meditate? Try this Simple Reframe “What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.” ~ Meister Eckhart One of the biggest challenges people have with meditation is that they “struggle to quieten the mind.” This is by far one of the most common things I hear from people when asking them about their meditation practice. What if there was a simple and easy way to help overcome this idea that meditation is some difficult practice? Well this is exactly what this post provides.   Meditation often carries with it this idea of “blissing out” or “zoning out”, having zero thoughts going through the mind and enjoying this zen like state. The truth is, most of the time spent in meditation is spent constantly bringing the mind back to the present moment (or whatever else is the focus of the meditation.) […]

How to Develop More Grit, Determination and Persistence

How to Develop More Grit, Determination and Persistence “Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.” ~ Meister Eckhart Grit is consistently voted the number one most important trait amongst the world’s highest achievers. The results of numerous studies conducted with the highest achievers in the world show that grit, determination and persistence are the most common traits that high achievers have and see as most important to their success. The ability to keep going when facing defeat and adversity. The ability to never say die, even when you feel like dying would be the easier option. The ability to say “F*&% You! to any and all forms of resistance. This is what sets the great apart from the good. The winners from the losers. The victims from the victors. Grit, is not something that we’re born with. These traits are learnable. Below are some simple principles […]

Chakra Balancing, Aligning and Opening Qigong Exercise

Quick and Easy Chakra Balancing, Aligning and Opening Qigong Exercise “I am safe, I am creative, I am strong, I am loved, I am expressive, I am connected, I am divine” ~ Seven Chakra mantra Before we begin it is probably handy to have an idea of what a chakra is and what they represent. Below is an extremely brief introduction to the chakras. There’s plenty of resources online for those who wish to explore further.   Chakra is a Sanskrit word that literally translates to disk or wheel. In this usage the term refers to wheels of energy in the body. There are seven main chakras, starting from the first chakra, at the base of the spine through to the 7th chakra located at the crown of the head. You can visualise the chakras in the body by imagining a swirling wheel of energy (also chi or prana) where […]

The Power of Pinpointing Your Keystone Habit “Motivation gets you started, habit keeps you going” ~ Jim Rohn   We often think that that much of what we do with our time each day is the result of a well considered and purposeful decision we’ve made, the truth is it’s not. It’s all habits that we’ve ingrained in our brain. A wealth of research has been conducted in this field and I won’t go into it so much here. The focus for this blog post will instead on the power and benefit of pinpointing a keystone habit. Habits are those choices that we’ve consciously made at some point that we’ve eventually passed over to our subconscious and have become automatic. The brain can’t tell the difference between a good habit and a bad habit, it creates them to make life easier for us. Which obviously doesn’t always turn out the way […]
