I heard a statistic recently that 70% of high performers engage in some form of meditation or mindfulness practice. From business to athletics to performers to creatives, this is a real thing for high performance.

If the narrative (the chatterbox psyche inside our head) gets in the way of what is actually happening, then meditation can create a blank space that makes the narrative quieter, so we can successfully ignore it.

Like other muscles or skills, meditation gets easier with practice. The more we do it, the better we get at quieting the narrative. When we drift away from practicing, the chatterbox gets louder and we pay more attention to it, distracting and distorting the real experiences of life.
