When most people think of business, the first thing that comes to mind is hardly ever spirituality or religion. In fact, it’s typically money, money, and… money. In many instances people prefer to keep the two worlds separate, unless of course it’s part of the business plan. But believe it or not, business and one’s psychology and spiritual beliefs go hand in hand.
What you believe governs how you manage your business.
I’ve been in a space a time or two as a young entrepreneur where some of my own limited beliefs kept me from achieving higher levels of success, and in some instances, kept me from taking action at all.
Whether it was thoughts of not having enough money to invest in resources, feelings of not knowing enough or being supported, or thinking that I didn’t deserve to charge more for my products or services.
I’ve crossed paths with all of these scenarios. But it wasn’t until I checked and altered my own belief system through much discipline and right action, that I was able to see things change in my business affairs, and ultimately, my life.
Business is a spiritual pursuit. Your business will not grow unless you grow as a person. If you want to lead others, you have to lead yourself first.
Consider this: When you invest in a belief system, faith, spiritual practice, etc…you are setting the tone for the messages, actions, relationships and quality of service that your business represents. Whether it’s your own company, or you work as an employee for someone else, you bring yourself to every situation. In every interaction, your attitudes and beliefs could mean the difference between being very profitable or having a failing business.
The key is to be mindful of self-sabotaging behavior, which is the result of negative or wrong thinking. With a shift in focus towards actions guided by thoughts of abundance, resourcefulness, maintaining good relationships, a belief in one’s own power, strength and capabilities, success is inevitable.
Your business will grow so long as you are willing to.
