A Quote by Nancy Spears on work and mindfulness

Working in the Moment

Even the highest-paid, respected executives in Corporate America occasionally lose sight of their view. As managers under pressure, we will experience events that cloud our clarity and distort composure. A boss or board member may challenge your opinion or position, the market may turn and threaten your financial security, or you may be stressed by a critical deadline.

In these instances, when you are experiencing the pressure of your job, you also have the opportunity to experience Right Mindfulness. Ironically, it is our insecurities, tribulations, and uncomfortable moments that offer us the best workable material. When we directly face our fears and frustrations, we are weaving the rare and intricate fabric used to design the rich tapestry of our authentic selves.

By training the mind and embracing challenges as opportunities to wake up, we develop the skillfulness to hold to our view. We remove the laminate that temporarily shields us from the discomfort of the moment. Strengthening our ability to fully experience each moment forms a keyhole for the world to shine directly into our tender heart.
