Benefits of Meditation for Your Mind #2

The Benefits of Meditation
 
     Between 1998 to 1999 many problems beset me severely. My company lost money. Creditors dunned me to pay my many debts. I was accused. I was deeply troubled as my child might not be able to complete his education abroad. I was very depressed. I was so afraid of not having money, being thought disreputable, and not being capable of paying my debts. At that time, I felt that I could not do anything even though I had millions of baht in my personal bank account. I thought of allowing the company to go bankrupt. But l did not do it – I could not bear seeing the company I could not bear seeing hundreds of my employees who had worked together with me for years become jobless. I made the decision to fight. I did not lay off any employees. However, under the pressure of so many debts, I could not increase their salaries. I withdrew my own money and increased the investment required to support the company. I negotiated with foreign lenders to extend their limits. Over time, I resolved the problem one by one.
 
      I can truly say that I could pass through that difficult time successfully because of meditation. At the time of troubles, I was so distraught because I faced problems in every direction I faced problems in every direction I was so distraught because I faxed problems in every direction I turned. It was good that I still had my great teacher, Luang Phaw Dhammajayo, as my pillar and model. He always reminded me to close my eyes, be comfortable, stay still, spread the loving kindness, and then think of all the deeds of merit I had performed. It seems so simple, but it is incredibly helpful. It is the key to the method which offers a perfect solution.
 
      Luang Phaw Dhammajayo used to tell me that perfect wisdom has never come from the anxious mind. Hence, Whenever I found myself worrying too much, I was determined to forget about my troubles by  meditating and clearing my mind, I began to see that no matter how difficult my problems were, the world would not end there and then if I could not solve them immediately.

      Whenever I was under pressure, meditation helped me control my emotions better. For example, I had to negotiate the debts with my creditors. They complained to me a lot, but I did not respond. I smiled, stayed calm, and did not say anything. I kept my mind calm as Luang Phaw Dhammajayo taught Then, my creditors told me that I was a polite and patient debtor. They did not know what I was thinking when I just kept smiling without saying a word. They thought I was being clever. In fact, what I was doing was meditating with open eyes. I did not think of anything else. When I brought meditation to my work life, everything changed. In the past, I always attempted to perform at the level of 100  percent. But when I spoke, I could accomplish only half of what I wanted; and when I attempted to implement my ideas, I accomplished even less. But once I gained control over my mind, everything changed. When my goal was to perform at 100  per cent, I was able to achieve twice as much while talking, and far more in results. Previously, I often had eight meetings a day and because of the many morning meetings, I had two breakfasts on some days. Now, I work less and experience an increase in productivity and am not so tired ad before. But the result is an increase in production. What is amazing was that meditation helped me in being creative and intuitive. One example was the Land and House Company’s “Ready-Before-Sale” project. Another example was a price strategy for the Home Pro Company. These ideas came to me after meditating. They did not occur to me at first. When I cleared my mind during meditation, I thought of what I had never thought of in the past. The answers came to my mind unexpectedly.

     After that, facing the problems became much simpler. The solutions were so simple that I had never thought of them. When I tried to implement those solutions, the results were far greater than the ideas I had brainstormed about in meetings. Indeed, facing more problems became much simpler through meditation. In the case of the Land and House Company, it became clear to me, after mediation, that the company has been in the real estate business for 30 years and it needed to get out of the cyclical ups and downs. Unlike industries based on intuitive technologies such as microchip, biotechnology or nanotechnology, our business was a boring one. The only technology we have is bricking and rendering, which has been the same for a thousand years. Even though we constantly attempt to create innovative styles for homes, within a week after completion someone else will copy it, What occurred to me from the meditation was how to keep a consistent quality. Let’s think of the car assembly manufacture: car manufacturers have to finish assembling and implement quality control before selling. In Thai real estate, it was a norm to first build a few model homes and wait for orders before building the real homes; which meant clients have the opportunity to walk into the manufactured product, check the door, seat, etc. I decided that we must build all the standard homes before attempting to sell them, like the method of the car assembly manufacture. This idea occurred to me in 2000 to 2001. I called about 10 executives into a meeting and announced my idea. 10 executives into a meeting and announced my idea. I told them that I would let go of the old way. All the ten executives disagreed with my idea. I had to coerce them to do it until, gradually, they started to believe in my idea. They, then, went on show this method to hundreds of other employees.
     Likewise, nobody believed the effectiveness of this method and they did not want to do it.

     My company is reasonably liberal: I distribute the power to every employee to allow them to have control over their financial future and I let them make decisions to buy the land on their own. If their decisions benefit the company, they will benefit the employees as well They were hence concerned that if they followed my idea, the company might be in bad shape and they did not want to implement it. It was difficult to get the employees to work on the project. But, as time went on, the project yielded positive results. It turned Land and House Company from a 45 thousand million baht loss into a profitable business. The most profitable year was in 2003 when our profit went up to an unprecedented 6,000 million baht. I received a dividend of 2,000. With half of it, I managed to clear all debts. I also made charitable donations with a part of the dividend. I also made charitable donations with a part of the dividend. The Home Pro company, the affiliate of the band and House Company, has been established for more than 10 years. I began the company because I wanted to provide customers greater convenience. Previously, once customers bought their houses, they had to go to different warehouses themselves to select their furniture. In 1997, we had three branches. I wanted to open more branches but the business only made a small profit. One day after meditating, I got an idea. I talked to my manager: “Could we not expand the branches”? He told me that it was difficult to expand as we made only one percent profit
