How a Calm Mind Can Bring You Inner Peace and Financial Security
In light of recent madness in the financial markets, the business world is embracing an old idea made new again: having a calm and focused mind leads to superior decision making, increased confidence, a greater ability to cope, and a lot less stress. Mindfulness Meditation can help you achieve the necessary clarity, focus, and peace of mind. These principles are especially applicable to the world of finance and investing, where stakes are high, sound decision-making crucial, and many variables exist outside of our control.
The Mindful Investor is a friendly, non-threatening, inspirational guide for individual investors, business people, and professionals who are looking for a better way to manage their money and their professional lives. Authors Maria Gonzalez and Graham Byron understand that financial success is important, but they also believe that people must create their own definitions of success.
The Mindful Investor:
- guides readers to achieve clarity about what is truly important, shows them how to stay focused on what matters and be level-headed about what they can’t control.
- introduces readers to the basics of Mindfulness Meditation, including the five hindrances to success.
- demonstrates how to combine these theories with sound financial planning to create a clear, structured financial future.
- offers suggestions for finding the right advisor and for optimizing the client/advisor relationship
Seriously, meditation and money do mix. Chances are, someone you know (maybe even your competition) has already used mindfulness to their advantage, without you being aware of it. The strategies in this book will help you to increase the mindfulness in every aspect of your life. You will see that by creating clarity, staying focused, and maintaining a calm perspective, you can attain both financial success and peace of mind.
