What Meditating for 100 Days Straight Taught Me About Self-Development

Posted on April 16th, 2018 by The Learning Factor

Self-development isn’t as easy as you’d think. And it’s certainly more difficult than you’d hope.


Our modern culture teaches us that self-development is only one purchase away. We’re brainwashed into thinking that we can purchase emotional development in the form of self-help books, phone applications, yoga mats, and other products.


But the truth is that real self-growth requires work. Otherwise, only the wealthy would have access to maturation. And that, as evidenced by our political leaders, is clearly not the case.


As a licensed therapist and executive coach, embodying my values is one of my most important aims in life. Part of doing the work that I do with clients requires me to continually improve myself–because in this field, you can only take others as far as you’ve been yourself. 


That’s the reason I decided to meditate for 100 days straight–to practice what I preach. To do what I say. And to be the congruent person I challenge my clients to become. 


These 100 days have taught me a lot.

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self

Posted on June 14th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

We call ourselves “human beings,” but I think that title is aspirational: one we are meant to earn. Being human should mean we are capable of higher-level thought and can choose rationally how we respond to external events as well as to internal thoughts and emotions. Now, I don’t know about you, but all I need is to be cut off in traffic or have my husband use the wrong tone of voice to witness my own inability to do this well.


Perhaps the most surprising element in business today is that we often behave in ways that are extremely ineffective and quite beneath us. Even those among us who are highly educated senior-level professionals fall into these traps.

Make it your goal to become a true human being: one who’s worthy of your own admiration and respect.
