Ssh. Take a moment, friend, and listen to the sound of your breath. We’re about to embark on a journey, you and I, and together we’re going to end up somewhere quite special. Notice your chest rising and falling as you breathe. Hear the breath enter your body as you read. Start to clear your mind of the clutter. Think about a happy moment you’ve experienced in recent days. This is important. You are fully able and capable of doing this. Your breathing, it’s the focus of what will help you get that clarity.
Don’t rush. Take your time. Life is full of opportunities and moments to grasp. We just need to be brave enough to see them and hold on to them when they stand in front of us. You might call them challenges. You might call them barriers. You might call them opportunities. Whatever you call it, the moment is yours. Are you being conscious of those breaths? Can you feel your body fill with the vitality that breathing provides? It’s amazing, what this simple act does for us.
Have a look around you. Notice the others in your vicinity. We’re all creating a moment for something to happen. Those breaths. Keep noticing them. Be free. Let those thoughts clear from your mind. Don’t be constrained. Trust yourself. Trust your mind. Trust your soul. Breathe in. Breathe out. Such simplicity and such vigour. It’s awesome.
We’ve connected. We’ve found a way to bridge space through this medium. Mindful breathing has helped us get here. We’re ready now to take that next step. Those breaths. So simple. So vital.
Forget HR. Forget Learning and Development. Forget Recruitment. Forget Organisational Development. Forget Coaching. Forget Employee Engagement. Forget this profession. Forget this industry. Clear your mind.
We’re there. Are you ready? Breathe in. Breathe out.
Imagine the job you do didn’t exist. Imagine there’s simply a better way to support the people you work with.
What does this new world of work look like for you?
