When searching on google for keywords, there is an interesting stat that came out. Several people are searching for external wealth (Money, millions) when compared to people searching for inner wealth.
Due to lack of inner wealth, people who are wealthy or otherwise go into depression, illness and all sorts of things. They remain uncomfortable with themselves and destroy their own life.
I’m not suggesting that money is bad. Money helps in creating the time and lifestyle we all want.
Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.
Being financially wealthy, and sick mentally and physically is not going to help.
At Limitless Monks, we believe that wealth is created from inside out and not the other way round.
Having gone through quite a few challenges throughout our life and also in the property journey, we believe that inner strength is crucial for the creation of external riches.
We know there are so many lottery winners who became worse than ever and few bankrupt after winning millions of pounds.
They simply weren’t capable of handling the external wealth and did not have the inner strength to face the challenges either.
In this post, I’m trying to share simple, but four pillars of creating the inner wealth which in turn helps in creating external wealth.
MEDS: Meditation, Exercise, Diet and Sleep or Rest
MEDS is a concept we put together and applied in our daily life to strengthen ourselves. The revelations implementing it have been simply tremendous for us.
Inner Wealth Creation With Meditation
Meditation has been a self-awareness tool for ages in different parts of the world.
There are so many scientific studies done and proven that meditation not only helps in mental peace but also helps in physical well being.
Scientific study: Researchers study how it seems to change the brain in depressed patients
There are so many different types of meditations these days. Some start with focus on breathing, some start visualizing, and for some, it is a spiritual journey.
I would recommend, you find a form of meditation that works for you.
Live LIFE with mindfulness and experience the moments, rather than live life by accident.
How do you find it?
Focus on the outcome of the meditation.
Check the results after following a process for a few days.
If you don’t get the results that you expect, try something different. If you get the results you expect, find out what can you do to improve and get better results.
Inner Wealth Creation With Exercise
Not doing any exercise increases the risk of chronic diseases and major illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes by 50%.
Above diseases not only increase the risk of complications and make life miserable and even cause early death in a few cases.
Exercise is a miracle cure for so many diseases both physical and mental. Exercise helps to release endorphins which create a positive feeling in the body.
What can we do?
If you don’t do any exercise, start walking, if you are walking, start running or try weight training. Do something to increase physical activity every single day.
There are a lot of benefits of exercise.
It is possible:
We know people achieving the body they want by doing regular exercise.
Anything is possible, but only if we are committed to achieving it.
Inner Wealth Creation With Diet
Shocking stats just for England. I’m sure it is not much different in most of other parts of the world.
- In 2016/17, there were 617 thousand admissions in NHS hospitals where obesity was a factor. This is an increase of 18 per cent on 2015/16.
- In 2016, 26 per cent of adults were classified as obese. This has increased from 15 per cent in 1993 but has remained at a similar level since 2010.
- In 2016, 26 per cent of adults and only 16 per cent of children consumed 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
- In 2016/17, 1 in 5 children in Year 6 and 1 in 10 children in Reception were classified as obese.
Most of us are not even aware of the consequences of the food we have. Not just that people are not even aware of the food they eat when they watch TV and eat whatever is there in front of them.
Any food that we consume is broken down to carbohydrates, Fat, Protein and water. Different types of food results in different hormone responses.
Understanding your body and identifying what diet will serve you will help massive changes in their health in very short period of time.
Good diet can add nourishment and get rid of toxins or add toxins and slow down the machine.
On the contrary high sugar or carb diet with less exercise will result in serious health conditions over period of time.
Finally Sleep or Rest
Drowsiness, irritability, altered perception are a few of the effects people go through when they go without sleep for 24 hours.
Do you know:
Experiments show that Alzheimer’s, dementia and other diseases are associated with sleep disorders.
What can you do?
There is so much content written about the cures for sleep disorders. From our perspective, we believe meditation helps in reducing stress levels and anxiety.
Few Other Solutions:
- Eat light dinner and eat at least 3 hours before sleep.
- Digestion must be completed before you go to bed. This will help in not just sleeping but complete resting of the body.
- Do not watch TV or watch smart phone.
- Melatonin is a hormone that regulates the body’s sleep cycle. Blue light from your phone disrupts the production of melatonin, hence affecting sleep.
- Watching any exciting programs on TV will effect the sleep as body is not in resting state.
It is not about how many hours you sleep but about how many hours your rest.
Interesting conversation with my daughter Nikita:
Had a lovely walk, talk and view of nature with my daughter recently.
During our conversation, I was talking about Spiritual, Physical, Social and Financial wealth.
I asked which of that wealth is internal and which of them are external. I was steering towards spiritual and physical being internal no one can rob them.
She said daddy we can rob them ourselves. Thought that was interesting, but the question is how?
The answer was simple but powerful. “By not taking action, by not doing them”.
The universal law of cause and effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause, likewise for every cause, there is a definite effect.
When you have to fix any problem there are two ways:
- Do root cause analysis and fix the root cause or build inner self
- Try to ease the symptoms with pills and root cause will remain for the rest of life showing up every now and then.
Which one would you choose?
We believe that MEDS are four pillars to create the strength one needs to create inner wealth.
MEDS is also free medication.
What you get from MEDS is free of cost, cannot be replaced with expensive chemicals we buy.
Don’t rob yourself of the wealth that you can create for yourself and in the process help others create similar wealth. Take action every single day. Do MEDS, the free medication every single day. MEDS can be done by yourself for yourself.
Commit yourself daily for your life
