Juggling Living in the Now and Our Businesses

Perform people else find this a significant tightrope walk? This can be quite head boggling!

The Past, Potential but rarely Present

The corporate world at large demands projections, business strategies, analysis of data and regular checking of characters – which area of our business should we focus on next, which country should we try to conquer next? A full time job by itself if we don’t have people to help us away! click here

All of the above serve to keep all of us in either the recent or the future. The present moment is short lived and reflects what we have been doing in the past anyway – so why spend a lot time analysing it? Definitely, by looking at the present moment and where we are – not simply in business, but in our lives – we have a pretty appropriate yardstick of how we have been creating presence to date. 

Business is an important Business

Most businesses are run with the aim of making money – yes, I know – I’m stating the obvious! However, isn’t it just this factor that takes the joy away of countless businesses? A little bit like an individual who loves novice dramatics, nevertheless they determine to transfer to the professional stage the pleasure dissipates because now their lifestyle will depend on their success. There is a layer of seriousness which now envelopes them and, apart from for a fortunate few, it’s not fun any more, but business.

This very seriousness is what scarves people up in knots, makes them tense, pressured and out of touch with their intuition and guidance. There is too much fear of inability and thoughts of not having enough money to support themselves, needing to return back into work that they hate doing just to pay the charges and even the apprehension of men and women telling them ‘I alerted you so! ‘

There are many levels to starting our own business. It’s about making ourselves vulnerable because we can in the end be declined by the world and nobody wants that which we have to offer. The ultimate rejection! It will require courage to take that leap of faith.

We have to be Keen

Loving what we do is absolutely in order to to have any chance of an excellent business, and I’m not simply talking about money. I’m sure everyone have had dealings with businesses which have recently been run delightfully – restaurants that serve the most delightful food for example. Then one day we visit our favourite restaurant and the food isn’t very quite nearly as good, the service isn’t quite as personal and, on enquiry, we find that the restaurant has changed hands. The eagerness and energy of the person/people that started out they have gone and, until the restaurant is considered over by people with equal passion, the shoppers are heading to feel the big difference. Perhaps there is ever the same standard of passion shown for a small business which is already a running concern vs the one which has been built from scratch with blood vessels, sweat and tears? I actually don’t know, but We doubt it.

It is our energy which operates our business. We can have unlimited funds to throw at it, but unless we have love for what we do that money is heading to go down the drain, as prospective customers will sense that we not necessarily in business for the love from it, but simply as a way of getting as much money as we can, in as short an occasion as possible. We won’t be present as people that they can trust!

Getting Things into Perspective

I feel that it is imperative to give attention to the present moment to stay sane in business. We may easily be permanently looking at next month, the coming year or 5 years hence as to what our business needs to have achieved by then – along with that is all the pressure of trying to make that imaginary path an actual reality. If we have started a company with borrowed money, we also have the stress of having to report in on our successes or failures to meet financial deadlines. Our stress levels rise exponentially if we are in that situation!

The same as an artist will make a work of art or a piece of music, putting their heart and soul into it, and then tentatively release it in the world in the hope that someone out people grasp its fact and understand what was in their heart at the time of make up. That is what like with our businesses – we put our bears and souls into them and then hope that somebody, anybody, out there ‘gets it’ and will come along on our journey.

Ultimately, there are no guarantees which our businesses will be financially successful, but we can guarantee that they are psychologically successful over a day to day basis through pursuing our intuition and doing what we love in just about every moment. Using this method will probably signify projections fly out the window, even as we can be lead down an totally different path and our business could serve completely another purpose to the one we had formerly envisaged. We could also be lead to change to another business, or travel another path – who knows. Life is packed with surprises!
