Grounded in Gratitude
As a coach, I work with high achievers in sport, business and more, to cultivate success and reach their goals. Many are athletes and interact with the world in a physical way. This guided meditation on gratitude is designed to help them - and anyone interested in the benefits of mindfulness - ground themselves and reach further success.
The best part of gratitude is that there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Just show up in the moment without expectation - that’s already a win. To get the most out of this exercise, you may want to track your progress, without judgment, and pay attention to how it supports your journey as a high achiever.
Convergent and divergent thinking are two forms of thinking that can be used to solve problems. Convergent thinking is a structured approach in which the problem solver works from a set of known facts or given information to come up with a single solution. Divergent thinking, on the other hand, is a creative process that encourages open-ended exploration of many possibilities and solutions.
Convergent thinkers typically approach a problem with a structured, methodical approach and are more comfortable with analytical and logical reasoning. They are organized and prefer to work through the problem in a linear fashion. They are often less creative and less open to alternative solutions.
Divergent thinkers are more open to new ideas and creative solutions. They are more comfortable with brainstorming and coming up with multiple solutions. Divergent thinkers are usually better at coming up with creative solutions, but may struggle with analyzing data and making logical decisions.
