Well, there is some truth to that if you've ever experienced the positive power of meditation.
Meditation allows one to harness their mind's power, which can result in more thought clarity, peacefulness and happiness.
Training the brain to focus one's attention can help cultivate peak performance in any pursuit.
According to the Huffington Post -- Meditation 101: The Neuroscience of Why Meditation Works -- article author, Ashley Turner cited the following:
"Long-time psychotherapist Dr. Ron Alexander, author of Wise Mind, Open Mind, speaks of MIND STRENGTH, or the resiliency, efficacy and emotional intelligence that arise as we begin the process of controlling the mind. Mind strength is one of the most empowering tools we can employ to impact and improve all aspects of life.
There are five major categories of brain waves, each corresponding to different activities. Meditation enables us to move from higher frequency brain waves to lower frequency, which activates different centers in the brain.
Slower wavelengths = more time between thoughts = more opportunity to skillfully choose which thoughts you invest in and what actions you take."
