Meditation is something I constantly use on a daily basis for so many different things, but especially for growing my brand and growing my business. I’ve found four great benefits of using mediation to grow my own brand and business. For as little as 10 minutes a day, you can harness the power of meditation and bring it into creating success in your business life.
When I first discovered meditation, I was really stressed out from a job that I felt like I was outgrowing and I wasn’t learning anything. I knew that I wanted to quit my job and to start my own brand for a new business. At the same time, I found myself searching on youtube for meditation and trying to understand it. I would sit down and try to get my mind to be blank, which I soon found out is not what meditation is. My favorite type of meditation is called or mantra meditation.
This is a technique of repeating a word, prayer or sacred mantra over and over so no other thoughts can enter your awareness. There are many other meditation techniques available to find the practice that works best for you and your lifestyle.
Meditation is a super fun adventure and an exploration of what’s going on inside of you, and that’s why it’s so important and such a awesome tool that you can use to grow your brand. All branding comes from the way that you express who you are and what you have to offer to the world. If you don’t look inside yourself, you will lack the ability to continually grow your brand. The more I can explore myself and find out about what it is that I have to offer and what I’m excited to offer, the more insights are going to come for my brand.
Only you can tell your story of your brand and the more authentic you can tell this story the more powerful your brand will become. You can hire copywriters, and you can hire branding consultants or coaches, but at the end of the day, your story comes from yourself and understanding yourself. So that’s why meditation is the most powerful (and free!) tool that you can use to grow your brand and to grow your business. Meditation encourages you to look deeply within, and it cultivates a clarity to see your truth clearly.
Meditation also really teaches you to trust yourself and to have faith in your vision. Trust and faith will help you harness your intuition to get the answers that really no other consultant can give you for your own brand.
The other way that I use meditation to grow my brand and grow my business is to move past the mental obstacles, physical obstacles and the emotional obstacles that come up when you create anything, and especially with your brand and business. There’s all of this resistance, whether it’s that voice in your head that tells you you’re good enough or that you shouldn’t be doing what you’re doing or that you’re no good. Confusion and doubt are common experiences that you can have when growing your brand and starting a business. Meditation gives you a powerful inner strength and mental focus for self-confidence, clarity, and conviction.
