How A Five Dollar Purchase Changed Me

Small things lead to bigger things

One day as I was cleaning off shelves in the clearance isle of my work, I saw something that caught my eye. While most people probably would have brushed it aside or considered it useless, I discovered a great gem.

What I found was a meditation CD full of great sounds and rhythms intended to bring the mind, body, and soul together. It was a great find for me, since it was a great way for me to relax my mind and escape the inner chatter and chaos of my daily schedule. I’m sure anyone who has ever had a busy schedule or grueling  time with school and work understands the feeling.

After some practice and listening to the audio CD, it was a great way for me to calm my mind and improve my level of concentration and feelings. I felt that utilizing the meditation CD really helped me improve my grades and test scores. My performance at school and work was improving because I was making an effort to improve.

Previously I feel I have struggled with holding my attention and focus, however I feel using meditation has been a great aid. I still fight the chatter of my mind and my ideas of imagination, however I am beginning to understand how important attentiveness truly is.

Over time I have really learned it’s easy to think thoughts at lightning speed and have ideas come in and out of one’s mind, but it is much harder to manifest things. It takes much more time and effort to be effective in multiple aspects of living.

In order to place ideas and thoughts into proper perspective, you need to be precise.  It takes time and patience as well as persistence to get things correctly in order.

The timing of my purchase was during my last semester at my nearby community college of my hometown. The classroom demands were really beginning to test my mental ability, so I had to discover a way to conquer my challenges. I quickly figured out that discipline had to be developed, and like a seed, discipline needs to be nurtured.

I was trying to spend my days in a frugal manner, cooking my own food, being independent, and spending countless hours in the library. Once I learned that being proactive and surrounding myself in the right environment was helping me succeed I knew I had to continue with my drive.  Once you begin to master certain areas of your life you can accomplish great feats!

I’ve always struggled with learning certain concepts and as a result, the lesson I have learned is discipline must be acquainted!
