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.
