Meditation Can Help Sell Your Home
Do you want to make better business decisions throughout the day? Perhaps even start a business? Or even sell or let that home that has been on the market for so long? (a strange one to add on the end but bear with me on this, they are all linked!) Meditation could be the answer.
I have been watching the news over the past couple of weeks about the Thai boys rescued from the cave. They were trapped for over two weeks. Meditation has been a common theme. The coach that was also trapped down there was from a monk background and taught the boys the power of meditation. Medical professions believe this helped them preserve their energy and keep calm.
Meditation was first introduced to me from my social marketing business and reading the book The Miracle Morning. I now practice it every day and have done so for two years. I can honestly say it has helped me make better business and life decisions.
Now, this isn’t some magic formula that you do once and expect your life to instantly change. It’s a lifestyle change, but do just 10 minutes a day and you will see the difference in yourself, your business and the way you make any decision in life.
Getting Started with Meditation
There is so much information on meditation from fancy apps to basic books to read. I just started by sitting in a comfortable position, this can be lying down, cross-legged or even on a chair with both feet on the floor and back straight (you literally can do it anywhere)
Make sure you are in a quiet space away from ANY distractions…
My motto ‘The rest of the world can wait, this is your time’
Take some nice deep breaths and clear the mind. I started by imagining a vase full of dirty water then a plug emptying the dirty water and filling it up with clear fresh water. I actually then progressed on to guided meditations on YouTube. There are so many great ones, have a look- I particularly love Tony Robbin's meditations and The Honest Guys.
Stick with it, your mind will wander at first and you might only achieve a few minutes but like anything in life practice makes perfect and you’ll soon be addicted.
I truly believe meditation can help with making better life and business decisions, help with fears and anxiety, achieve particular goals and just clear that head fog we all get from time to time.
Why does it help, because it focuses you, makes you breathe better and just generally slows you down in that fast world we all live in.
In my title I made a statement it will help sell your home… how is meditation even linked? Well, like I say meditation helps you think better, focus your mind and generally feel more positive about life.
When selling your home sometimes you get so swept up in the excitement of, your home is the best in the street, on the market and even the best price... an absolute bargain! (admit it, we have all done this!) When actually all you need to do is take a step back think for a moment and work out a different method to attract those viewers to your door.
Taking 10 minutes each day to meditate, clear your mind and set your new intention might just help you see that actually your home isn’t what you see it as (rose tinted glasses comes to mind)
You might suddenly see that actually the décor needs updating or that junk room needs clearing to create and show off your spacious second bedroom. Or perhaps suddenly you might see your home isn’t quite priced correctly. Your estate agent might have promised you that amazing figure but if it isn’t attracting the viewers you need, taking a different more positive angle on things might just help you achieve what you need.
Give meditation a go, commit for just 30 days and see what positive change starts happening around you. You’ll be hooked in no time.
Let me know how you get on, I’d love to hear from you.
