I just read an interesting article in the Harvard Business Review on “The Secret of Success in a Failing Economy.”
The “secret” is that the most successful people practice–a lot. Whether you’re a concert violinist or a computer programmer, practice–more than sheer talent–will be the determining factor.
That made me think about spiritual practices like meditation, gratitude and mindfulness. The more we practice, the better we’ll get and the more wisdom and peace we’ll reap. That’s why they call it a practice.
So, set up rituals, find the time in your busy schedule and make your spiritual practices a priority. It’s one of the best investments you can make in your personal and professional success.
