The two biggest things that get in the way of both the inner peace and the growth of an entrepreneur are fear and self-doubt.
Now there are many ways to deal with fear and self-doubt and generally I use energetic tools such as those in my Life Transformation Tools program to help me and my clients get out of our own way.
Today I want to talk about this on other levels as well. It is no secret that there is a shift happening on our planet now — a change in consciousness. It is time to raise our vibration. But if we are in fear of moving forward with our business or doubting ourselves and our expertise, then we are holding our vibration down and there is resistance.
I know it is hard to trust when often times it feels like chaos is all around us. Yet if we do not trust ourselves, our intuition, our brilliance and the Universe, then we go nowhere.
So what if you looked at your business as a playground for your spiritual evolution?
Actually I have come to believe that it is. Everything that we create in our lives is an opportunity for us to learn and move forward on our spiritual journeys — and being peaceful is part of our spiritual journey. (I am not referring to religion here, but a more global spirituality that is common for all of us regardless of individual religious beliefs).
So if you try something new in your business and it takes off like a rocket, you learn how to deal with it both from a business systems perspective as well as from whatever spiritual lessons you needed to learn (perhaps how others relate to you and you relate to others’ from this place).
If you send out a new promotion and there is little or no response, you learn things both from a spiritual and a marketing viewpoint. That’s not to say you won’t be disappointed or perhaps obsess a bit about what you did wrong (ugh!).
But if that disappointment is disproportionately strong or you can’t let go, then it is a sign there are old patterns and memories to release and this thing that we called “failure” is actually perfect because it triggered something we needed to release for our spiritual evolution that will bring us to a place of peace. I experienced this firsthand recently.
Sometimes we don’t know what the lesson is or what there is to do. That is the time to get quiet … to be curious and allow the answers to show themselves or to get support from a spiritual business coach or healer in letting go of whatever is in our way.
As we move forward let’s look for the gem in each situation that allows us to evolve spiritually. I know sometimes, it can be difficult and we may want to scream and that’s okay too. But as we evolve, I believe our businesses will grow in new ways or get re-designed –such that they fit like a glove for our new way of being. And from this place , I can only think that “success” will be a given.
I welcome your comments.
