I find truth in both teachings and combine their viewpoints to make them my own. What if taking the action to find true happiness is the most impactful action we can ever take?
What if, together, we strive for our true internal happiness and actively change the course of society? Who could we become as leaders if we stoically carry the found happiness in our heart?
We need new kinds of leaders to tackle humanities problems. And these leaders will not be scientists, even though essential, they mostly lack the time and the focus on empathic leadership to take people with them on the voyage.
Humanity needs YOU! Ready to step into your own awareness, ready to stoically change the world with the understanding that only through your own inner epicurean happiness, together we can continue to flourish.
You might say now: Great Marco, and how do I do that? And here comes the other direction, I investigated, in play:
Breath? How the hell can my breathing be the answer to the world’s challenges? You might ask.. And honestly I asked myself the same question.
But when digging deeper into the science of correct breathing, I quickly found out that the virtues of conscious breathing are amongst many more: a lower resting heart rate and blood pressure, focusing of our thoughts, disconnecting the mind from constant ruminating and a more recuperating sleep.
Consciously breathing through our nose instead of our mouth, training ourselves to breathe slowly, lowering our breathing from an average of twenty breaths per minute to fifteen or even ten, has a large impact on how we approach our everyday life and might just be the change we are looking for that can impact our personal leadership and hence improve how we lead the world around us.
There is another learning here: As so often in life when simultaneously taking care of our mind and our body, we access the solutions we are looking for. It is through trusting that something as simple as “how we breathe” has a profound impact on our lives, we can envisage, activate and implement an empowering philosophy for ourselves and the world.
