Being anchored is powerful

Scenario: You’re about to go into meeting. You'll be presenting the status of the project you've been working on, but you don't have much and the deadline is approaching.

You're going to be on the spot.

You're not as prepared as you'd like to be.

Just when you're about to go in, you get a wave of nervousness and think, "Okay, I can do this."

You're regretting all the coffee.

What do you do?


What’s your approach for interacting with people articulately and effectively? How do you quickly get anchored, and do what you need to do?

And it can’t just be grit and bear through it.

It can, but I wanna challenge that.

Because we can all tell when someone's just going through the motions, their mind really going a million miles a minute.

When someone's nervous and super strung out, we notice.

Whether the meeting is with a friend, client, or a board of directors, you want to be fully present and in control, right?

You gotta understand, when I first came to meditation in 2006, it was precisely for this reason: To manage my inner state while being really present with people.

Meditation actually helped in this regard. It showed me an internal stillness, which I could very quickly get back to.

Like when I was on my way to teach meditation at a start-up in San Francisco, and I got news that my Mom was in the hospital. I was able to anchor myself and still teach clearly and compassionately.

Do you have the jedi ability to manage your internal world on the spot?

What if you walked into your engagement poised, anchored and able to pick up on subtle cues and better your interactions?

I think you'd be powerful.
