Martin Luther King Jr. is recognized as one of America’s most influential leaders of all time. It was Dr. King who, before the eyes of the nation, brought millions of people together and had his seemingly impossible goals realized. Martin Luther King Jr. was able to navigate constant change while remaining centered, clear-headed, and passionately engaged. Surya Success™ (http://SuryaSuccess.com) aims to support CEOs and Executives in finding that same elusive ability within themselves, with the launch of an exclusive 30-Day Success Challenge (http://Surya30DayChallenge.com). This pioneering online platform helps business leaders achieve a state of balance to maximize their performance and influence in the world.
The demands of being a great leader requires profound reserves of strength, courage, and mental acuity—qualities often cited as the results of meditation. Dr. King’s belief in the teachings of Thoreau and Gandhi, and his close friendship with Thich Nhat Hanh, whom he referred to as “an ambassador of peace,” brought him an ancient perspective on building political change by first creating inner peace. Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) retreated to historic Walden pond to achieve inner peace by meditating and studying ancient texts. Ghandi (1869–1948) was an outspoken proponent of meditation, and cited it as an important practice for anyone wanting to create social change. Martin Luther King Jr., a student of both Thoreau’s and Ghandi’s work, practiced his own form of meditation which was the first of Dr. King’s Ten Commandments for Cultural Change. By providing an ancient and proven science redesigned specifically for individuals in high-stress positions, Surya Success offers a new approach to a quintessential time-tested practice.
Many Executives may feel they are too busy to incorporate meditation into their already crowded schedule. Sandra Galvagny (http://www.linkedin.com/in/sgalvagny), the CEO of Surya Success, suggests that "The 30-Day Success Challenge offers simple yet powerful breathing exercises that can be done in just a few minutes a day, from the convenience of one’s office or home. By bringing their mind, body, and breath into alignment, CEOs and Executives can achieve optimal well-being and magnified success.” This commitment to self-care and stress management is seen in some of today’s celebrity CEOs such as Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, and Bill Ford, who encourage meditation as a powerful tool for personal and professional development. Steve Jobs was also a proponent of meditation, stating “If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is…If you try to calm it, it only makes things worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things—that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.”LinksQuotesIf you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk...whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.ImagesContact
