This article is a continuation of the series started a few weeks ago where you’re learning about the four levels in which transformation occurs for a conscious entrepreneur and/or author.
The first level is YOUR transformation as the creator; the second level is the transformation of your “tribe” or readers; the third level is the transformation of your business (a natural benefit of the first two); and fourth is ultimately the transformation of the world.
Today you’ll take a look at the third level… transforming your business!
Once you’ve worked through your own transformation, and gained clarity on how you want to help others transform – this is the sweet spot in which your business can then transform.
However, most entrepreneurs are taught to work on the business first. The belief is, if you work on the business and get it fixed, then everything else will work out. And, nothing is further from the truth.
I know from experience what it’s like to build a business that looked like the epitome of success on the “outside” but had a cracked foundation on this inside. It didn’t matter how much money I made, even more than a half-million dollars in revenue in a single year couldn’t fill the crack in the foundation.
Ask yourself these three questions as you move forward with transforming your business:
1) Are you really doing what YOU want to do, or are you doing what you think you should do?
2) Are you coming from a true place of service? Or, is fear causing you to act?
3) Are you allowing yourself to be guided (connected with Spirit) to help you determine the best next steps in your business? If not, what can you do to bring more Spirit into your business?
All of these questions open new doors to honesty and authenticity with your Self. The answer to which will let you see into parts of yourself that perhaps you haven’t wanted to look into… yet. But, the beauty is – these questions hold the key to deeper understanding, new wisdom, truth and insight that, once integrated, will be the very rocket fuel for your business success.
Especially now as the world goes through its own powerful transformation, your business is being called to do the same thing. Know that any challenge you face, obstacles that seem to be in your way, struggles that seem never-ending – they are all here to SERVE you on your transformational path. Let them be your teachers, let them bring you to your knees perhaps, and let yourself get to the bottom of it all so you can launch yourself back up with courage, wisdom and strength.
Stay tuned for the fourth and final installment of this article series in my next issue where we’ll dig into the fourth level of transformation – your world!
And, if you want to dig a little deeper right now, I encourage you to take the action step below….
Get out a piece of paper, or a new Word document and answer the questions posed to you above in the article. Give yourself the gift of taking time to do this now. Remember; do not have any judgment about your answers. Allow whatever shows up to be there, and pay attention to any feelings that arise. Breathe into the feelings rather than squash them down. You don’t need to do anything immediately with what you see. Simply begin the exploratory process of noticing what’s there and letting it unfold as you move forward.
