Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Jay Abbasi, on air from May 19th
The “tagline” I use often is “Mindfulness is Not Just For Yogis”, and what I mean by that is the practice of mindfulness can be applied to our everyday lives, including how we operate at the workplace.
A simple straight forward to explain what I do:
I support individuals and organizations struggling with burnout and workplace stress through mindfulness training, which develops resilience and the ability to persevere through a fact-paced and everchanging work environment 😌💪.
In 2014, my father passed away suddenly from a heart attack. It was devastating. I also had a large amount of credit card debt, my job paid me decently but I didn’t love what I did, and my marriage was falling apart. I started reading everything I could about how to deal with the grief, get out of this rut and turn my life around. What I learned to develop was a skill that changed my life completely.
The skill is self-observation. I learned to look OBJECTIVELY at how I operate. How I think. How I feel. How I behave. I learned to understand WHY I do the things I do, and how to change my behavior. By developing this skill, I learned how to be resilient, perform better, lead better, and work better with others.
The practice I learned to develop self-observation is MINDFULNESS. It has been the one practice that turned my life around. I joined Tesla and in under 4 years worked my way up to running Sales Training at a national level. I started a business. I’m in a happy and healthy relationship. I’m in the best shape of my life.
For years I’ve developed training programs for billion dollar companies such as Tesla and SolarCity. One thing I learned is that adults need a bit more than just DRY CONTENT to learn something new. So, I developed an approach to training that combines Education and Entertainment to ensure a world-class learning experience! Adults retain information better when we’re having FUN in the process. My training programs are designed to engage learners in a way that you won’t typically find in online courses.
My goal is to provide an experience! One that provides individuals with the practical application of new ideas that will support growth in the workplace.
I could have chosen to leverage my training skills to develop online courses for many different topics, but I chose mindfulness because I have EXPERIENCED the benefits, and it is my true passion!
My mission is to bring mindfulness to the workplace to support individuals or companies struggling with stress, burnout, uncertainty, or a lack of motivation. I feel as though this is my purpose!
