9 Business Leaders who Meditate and Why It’s Essential to Success

9 Business Leaders who Meditate and Why It’s Essential to Success

As the new year begins the world is awash with resolutions and good intentions. We write lists, we vow to change bad habits and we feel that a ‘fresh start’ to the year can bring miracles and the success we aspire to.

The truth with resolutions is that only consistent effort in small increments will bring lasting change. Expecting a new and unrealistic schedule to catapult your life into instant success and happiness is as realistic as believing you can win the lottery. Without buying a ticket.
Research on New Year’s resolutions
A study in 1989 (JC Norcross) that tracked 200 New Year resolvers for two years reported that only 19% of those studied managed to sustain their new habits. 77% managed to keep their resolve for a week, but somewhere along the way 58% lost their motivation and application.
A subsequent study in 2002 (JC Norcross), tracking those who made resolutions, found higher rates of success in resolvers: 46% were continually successful compared to only 4% of those not making resolutions. This underlines the belief that setting goals is a strong habit of successful people.
Research shows that 45% of New Year’s resolutions are self-improvement based; again a strong indication of what people most desire: success.

The greater danger for most of us isn’t that our aim is too high and miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” Michelangelo

Model yourself on great business leaders
According to many self-improvement authors, such as Tony Robbins, one of the greatest ways to achieve lasting change is to seek out others who have achieved the success you desire. The emphasis here is on ‘authenticity’ – not a superficial Facebook ‘perfect life’ that doesn’t exist.
If you desire business success then learn about leaders who have already blazed a trail and find the essence of what has made them great. Model yourself on their behaviours and personality.
Andrew Carnegie, who amassed a great wealth after beginning life in poverty, is still considered one of the most successful industrialists and philanthropists to have lived. In 1908 he met Napoleon Hill and urged this young and ambitious man to interview and study 500 of the most successful men in his time. Greats such as Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Rockefeller, Woolworth and Roosevelt were on that list. Hill went on to write one of the greatest self-improvement books of all time, ‘Think And Grow Rich’, which subsequently turned him into a very successful man.

If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.” Tony Robbins

Coping with stress and little sleep
Becoming a great business leader requires many traits but none less than the ability to deal with extreme levels of stress and hard work. Meditation is now widely recognised as one of the greatest tools to help people on all levels cope with stress in their lives. This three-month study into the effects of Transcendental Meditation on stress and employee health showed that meditators experienced reduced stress, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue; and increased job and life satisfaction.
9 Business Leaders who Meditate
The following is a list of high-profile business leaders who have achieved extraordinary levels of success in business. They offer their thoughts on practising transcendental meditation and how it helps them cope with the demands of their daily work life.


Rick Goings, CEO of Tupperware
It’s a practice that not only burns off stress but gives me fresh eyes to clarify what’s really going on and what really matters.


Arianna Huffington, Founder of Huffington Post
The workplace is fuelled by stress and burnout, and we as women can begin to change that. We can set a new standard.
There doesn’t have to be a trade-off between performance and actually tapping into a place of peace, strength and wisdom within.


Russell Simmons, Co-founder of Def Jam and CEO of Rush Communications
I have been a meditator for about 12 years. It has given me energy, strength, health, wisdom, and access to my own inner stillness, inner silence, inner bliss. It is my connection to myself; it is my connection to the universe.


Rupert Murdoch, Founder of News Corporation
Trying to learn transcendental meditation. Everyone recommends, not that easy to get started, but said to improve everything!


Roger Berkowitz, CEO of Legal Sea Foods
“The first thing I do in the morning is retreat to my den and meditate. I meditate twice a day for 20 minutes, closing my eyes, clearing my mind, and repeating my mantra until I’m in a semiconscious state. Sometimes, I’m wrestling with an issue before meditation, and afterward the answer is suddenly clear.”


Marc Benioff, Software Veteran
I enjoy meditation, which I’ve been doing for over a decade — probably to help relieve the stress I was going through when I was working at Oracle.


Bob Shapiro, Former CEO of Monsanto
As a business person, I noticed a number of people I knew pretty well who really picked up on it, people who perhaps had come into it with some degree of skepticism and found the experience useful.


Robert Stiller, Founder of Green Mountain Coffee
If you have a meditation practice, you can be much more effective in a meeting … Meditation helps develop your abilities to focus better and to accomplish your tasks.


Steve Rubin, former CEO of United Fuels International
TM is a competitive advantage in the business world.”
“I have the mental clarity and alertness for both laser-like focus on the details as well as broad comprehension.

Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself?” Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
