The health benefits of meditation continue to be revealed in research. But, is meditation enough? If you’re drowning in mountains of debt, will meditation help you get your financial house in order? What about the deep gnawing unhappiness of your marriage or relationship? Will it help increase the satisfaction with your dead end job?

This means that many of the excuses we use to explain why we can’t succeed are simply wrong.”1
