We have many different voices inside our heads.

Some tell us to do the right thing, and others don’t. Knowing which to listen to can become confusing in today’s age of distraction. That’s why everyone is meditating, to try to access some sort of unique thought that isn’t the byproduct of an Instagram or Facebook feed.

And if you're not meditating, then one of your meditating friends is prescribing meditation to you. It all makes sense that stillness of mind has risen as the self-help remedy to remove the Internet’s toxins.  

And on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are talking best meditation practices with Jay Shetty. Jay, who was once a practicing monk in India, is now an award-winning host & storyteller with the Huffington Post. He is part of the 2017 Class of Forbes 30 Under 30, and today we are fortunate to here his insights on meditation and mindfulness.

“When I have an idea, I want to know as much what the Dalai Lama thinks as what the Mark Zuckerberg thinks. Because that polarity allows me to not get lost in the echo chamber.” - Jay Shetty

Points to Keep In Mind

  • The world of business requires striving
  • Detachment doesn’t mean “you own nothing,” rather, it means that “nothing owns you”
  • Don’t get trapped in the perception of yourself
    • Charles Cooley, “I am not what I think I am, and I am not what you think I am. I am what I think you think I am.”
  • Seeing others’ struggles exposes the illusion of your own suffering
  • Gandhi, “I was sad that I didn’t have any shoes, but then I saw a man with no feet.”
  • Let your consciousness evolve from survival to service for others
  • Remember that awareness doesn’t always feel good, but is the first step to self-improvement
  • The most successful people in the world choose education over entertainment
  • The more specific your gratitude is, the deeper it is
  • Read Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman to separate the voice of your mind from the voice of your intelligence
  • Use social media to start curating your feed with mindfulness/meditation sources
