Sit Still and Be…

MAY, 2018

Now for something really easy to do!.  Sit Still and Be!

This is most likely the advice you don’t want to hear but the busier you are, the more important it is for you to do it! Extraordinary athletes, executives and performers make space for the most important person of all, themselves, to simply be, so they can be all they are meant to be. When you make time to be simply sit still and be quiet, you give yourself the gift of allowing your brain to shift from the left side to the right side, the realm where your personal genius resides. It is then you brain waves shift into alpha state and you receive insights and reflections to enable you to be Extraordinary. I make sure I do this at least three times a day and the results have been amazing Taking time away from your work for some short breaks of silence reinvigorates you and gives you all the answers you need. Give yourself that gift too and make time for you to be still and connect to the power of your Extraordinary mind.

I learned the 3 S’s – Solitude, Silence and Stillness from my work as the private advisor to some of the most successful business builders and entrepreneurial titans on the planet….the best of them understand the value of a period of daily Solitude, Silence and Stillness. They would carve out time to think, plan and visualise. Every 24 hours. Without fail….And ironically, by making the time to reflect, the actions that followed were vastly more focused, productive and excellent.     Robin Sharma

To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.     Deepak Chopra

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…We need silence to be able to touch souls.  Mother Teresa

True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.     Eckhart Tolle


Make time daily to be still and tune in to the Extraordinary genius that already exists within you.
