Reaching New Heights

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Ama Dablam

During the past 6 weeks we have explored the 4 Pillars of Spiritual Entrepreneurship and as we approach the conclusion of this series we are being given an opportunity to Reach New Heights.

I can not begin to count the number of times I have been assaulted with the “fact” that more millionaires were made during the Great Depression than in any other time during American History. While all this may be true I think it does each of the spiritual entrepreneurs an extreme disservice. The articles and get rich programs that remind us this “fact” imply that f we simply have liquid capital than there is simply no reason for us not to be a millionaire. As the world wide economy has begun to re-invent itself there have been a wealth of opportunities, however a pile of cash and or a great idea are not enough to propel anyone to the all elusive “Overnight Success” status. Last week we looked at the “Power of a Strong BASE” and this week we look at how the pinnacle of each pillar can provide the platform from which we can “Reach New Heights”.

We must then begin with Character. Earlier in this series I asked if you would rather blaze your own trail or be known as someone that followed the crowd. As we stand today on top of this pillar and look across to the top of the other three pillars; Adaptability, Skills and Focus I believe you will see how we have created the platform that rests on top of all 4 Pillars. Are you ready to blaze a trail into the unknown, into the field of unlimited possibilities, or stay within the confines of what you already know?

Once you commit to the journey of blazing a new trail you will find that Adaptability has its benefits. I truly believe one of the contributing factors to the success of all those depression era millionaires was the ability to adapt to “What Is”. Rather than wallow in the dis-belief of their abilities, character and skills they stayed focused on their ability to adapt their situation into something that would make life work for them, No Matter What.

These pioneers also made use of the Skills they already possessed, or set out to gain new skills that would position them perfectly for the raising tide of innovations and new ideas. During my studies of these men I was often struck by the visionary nature they all exhibited. These men were able to blaze trails where many only saw quicksand. They often were called to develop new ways of Being or Doing what was required in order to move in the direction of their dreams.

Finally our Focus must be on our dreams and our ability to accomplish those dreams. A friend recently reminded me of the dynamic trajectory of an archer’s arrow in flight. The archer never questions the arrow’s ability to fly and the arrow simply flies to where the archer focused his attention. The focus we are being called to bring is an unwavering faith in ourselves and our chosen business. As spiritual entrepreneurs I would also suggest we are being called to focus our efforts on co-creating a world that works for everyone, in whichever ways we can.

Standing on top of the platform supported by the 4 Pillars provides an unrestricted view of the heavens. From up here it is easy to see the unbounded Character, the malleable Adaptability, the forever expanding Skill set and the unwavering Focus necessary to express ourselves as spiritually minded business owners,managers and organizational leaders. Spiritual leadership is about more than understanding these principles; it is about modeling these behaviors in every moment and with every policy, procedure and personal interaction.

At the Inspired Business Center we strive to support Spiritual Entrepreneurs as they move in the direction of their dreams and support a new vision of business and organizational leadership. We understand that each and every organization is a living breathing unique emanation. As such we provide unique solutions for each organization we work with. We invite you to learn more about what we do and who we are by joining us on the third part of a three part Tele-Seminar: The Courage to Hold the Vision. You can learn more about this FREE CALL HERE. We also invite you to experience a no-obligation consultation and learn how you can implement the 4 Pillars of Spiritual Entrepreneurship in your business or organization. Simply CONTACT US for details.

Be sure to join us next week as we conclude this 8 week series and provide some glimpses of what we will be sharing as this year comes to a close and we move into 2011. Make sure you check in with us next week as we put the roof on our organizational structure and explore the next steps in utilizing our Beliefs, Character, Vision, Adaptability, Passion, Skills, Faith and Focus in the creation of an amazingly prosperous business.

Until next week,

Peace and Prosperity

Pillar #4 Faith and Focus

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Today we explore the fourth and final pillar of our series. The pillar of Faith and Focus completes the four corners of our structure and is in my opinion the most import pillar for the spiritual entrepreneur. What is faith and how do we use it? It has been said that Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Running on Faith or Focused on something unseen?

Running on Faith or Focused on Something Unseen?

Thus, Faith is in some ways walking from the visible to the invisible. In business we have faith that our products or services will sell. We have faith that someone will not open a shop much like ours on the opposite corner. We have faith that people will spend their money. We have a visible product and we walk into the invisible world of sales and marketing.

Faith takes on many different forms within our company. Our employees must have faith their job will exist tomorrow. Our vendors have faith we will pay our bills on time. Our customers have faith we will continue to provide them with the goods and services they desire. Most importantly we, as owner, executives, and managers must have faith in the economy, local and/or federal governments and the quality of our products. Each of these aspects requires a slightly different form or style of faith.

Ultimately having Faith means we are willing to look beyond the worldly, materialistic view of our life, our business our world, and see something different. We are being called to see the world as we wish it to be rather than what we believe it to be in this moment. How often have you heard someone say, “I’ll believe it when I see it.” That statement is the exact opposite of Faith. Faith is knowing that, “When I believe it I will see it.” In today’s economy we are being asked to believe in the recovery in order to see or experience that recovery. If we wait until we see the recovery to believe it is happening we will continue to wallow our way through what appears to be a recession.

This brings us to the aspect of Focus. Our Focus must be on that which we desire to experience as the truth of our life, business, company, or organization. Another wonderful saying is, “What we think about is what we bring about.” If your focus is on how terrible the recession is you will get to experience a terrible recession.

Let’s look at an old business paradigm of the target market. Often as business owners we are told to focus on our target market. While this was once a wonderful concept I believe it represents an old paradigm of business thinking. As Spiritual Entrepreneurs we are being called to support the expansion of a new paradigm. This new paradigm is one in which all transactions are treated as a spiritual experience, regardless of the players definition of spirituality. Take a look at the target market concept from the consumers’ perspective. Would you rather be someone’s target or their ideal customer? No one wants to walk around with a target on their back; however we do want to be someone’s ideal customer. I believe that if I am your ideal customer you will treat me as a valued asset. Would you rather gets used up and thrown away or be an ideal form of support and growth for a company?

Taking a spiritual approach to business serves to reframe every aspect of our perspective, perception and thus experiences. The pillar of Faith and Focus help to complete that reframing of our minds that open our business to an entirely new avenue of attracting customers, fans, supporters, and financiers. At the Inspired Business Center we are teaching business owners, executives and managers how to bring spirituality in to play in their companies and organizations through Faith and Focus.

Hopefully you now have an understanding of the 4 Pillars and how they can serve as the corners stones of a spiritually based business. During the next three weeks we will explore the practical applications and share how these concepts work in conjunction to support your company or organization.

Until then we invite you to become engaged with these concepts by revisiting each the previous blog posts and refreshing your understanding of the 4 Pillars of Spiritual Entrepreneurship. We also ask that you invite your friends to join us in this conversation. Lastly we suggest you submit any questions you may have as comments to this blog post. We will respond to your questions and comments throughout the week in preparation for the next stage in this series. As we move into exploring how to use these concepts our intent is to open a robust conversation with our readers. We would love your participation in this conversation.

Peace and Prosperity
