I just experienced one of those annoying internet modem failures. When the internet went down so did my inter office network and all the devices attached. It occurred to me that just as we can suddenly be disconnected by technology, we can also be disconnected by day to day business challenges.
Where are you finding a disconnect in your business? Maybe you’ve lost your passion, or dealing with a difficult employee, or too busy and overwhelmed to think, to plan, to take action? Those times of feeling separate can make us question what we’re doing, or can cause us to be discouraged.
When we feel a disconnect in our business, the simplest fix is not to run to the computer store, but to go within. To reconnect with our higher wisdom self, and to what is truly meaningful and important to us. We can get back to center and reclaim our courage and our strengths. I was amazed to watch the athletes in the Olympics. Whenever they had a disappointment, they went back to their internal source of strength and got right back in the pool or on the balance beam or gear up for the next race. Only they know how many times they’ve needed to repeat that process to be a competitor in the Olympics!
When we are focused internally, we can connect with a deeper awareness. As business owners and executives, we succeed when inner guidance leads us toward compassionate, thoughtful leadership.
Then we can get back into the action. We can connect with our management team, our peers and resume the collaboration. With a renewed outlook we can shift perspective to see what is good and discover what makes best practices more powerful.
We each have immense potential for greatness and the opportunity to lead our businesses to successful outcomes. As Andrew Cohen put it, “The newly emerging potentials….only come into being to the degree that you and I consciously participate together to develop those higher capacities within ourselves.”
The end game of course is to live life full out. To be absolutely present in the moment and fully engaged in making a difference!
If it’s time for you to reconnect, I invite you to consider joining one of our Masterful Intentions Business Executive Groups. They are based on three pillars: The power of intentions, the exponential results that come from peer group wisdom and a connection with the Divine as a full partner.
