This is Part 6 of a 10 part series on the benefits of meditation for leaders.
The sixth reason for mediating is that it makes you resilient. The greatest people in the world are the most resilient. They are the ones that bounce back from a dramatic defeat or devastating injury. They are the ones that leave what happened yesterday in the past and focus on the present moment at hand. Meditation has been shown to help people in this area.
Failure is a step on the path to success. Every person has failed and will fail at some point in their careers. Meditation helps people detach themselves from the negative thoughts that keep them from achieving their goals.
