121. Mastering Your Mind & Being Present | Jeff Photiades

Mar 1, 2018 | 0 comments

Do you struggle with being present?   We talk a lot about achieving extraordinary results, setting goals, and gaining clarity on your priorities…. but one thing that we don’t often talk about as much is mastering our mindset. So many of us are constantly thinking about the next thing that we have to do or something that’s already happened, and as a result, we’re never really in the moment.   If you are always living in the future or the past, then being present may be ONE thing that can transform every area of your life. Jeff Photiades joins the show to share how he started getting more intentional around his mindset, and how you can too.  

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

If you were able to, at any time, be truly present and nowhere else, would that ONE thing improve every area of your life?   We think it will, and we believe practicing meditation will help you accomplish that. If you don’t have a meditation practice already in place, we challenge you to start one. Even if it starts with just one breath a day, that is ONE thing that can make being present easier or unnecessary.   Download yourself a free 66-Day Challenge Calendar to start today.
