BELIEVE AND THEN ACHIEVE!

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012


“Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune into,” says inspirational author and speaker Wayne Dyer.  The way we tune into our world is through what we believe to be true about ourselves, about others and about what’s possible.

Have you ever marveled at a business or professional colleague who succeeded against all odds because they didn’t know it was supposed to be difficult and impossible?  They simply believed they could do it and they did it!

Dr Alex Loyd, author of The Healing Code, says “You do what you believe 100 percent of the time.”  When you really think about it, that’s a very powerful and revealing statement.  Although we may be influenced by our outer world, and often we agree that we “should” adopt a new behavior, cold call more, eat broccoli, follow a budget, be on time, we often don’t adopt the behavior, or if we do, it doesn’t last.

Loyd continues, “The corollary is also true: You never do anything that you don’t believe.  If you are doing something that you consider wrong or counterproductive, it is because you believe something wrong or counterproductive.  If you are doing something that is right or good or constructive, it’s because you believe something right, or good or constructive.”

Old beliefs are stored in our subconscious and we very seldom stop to look at them.  Old beliefs may have come from past experiences, what you’ve been told by others or your industry’s thinking on what’s possible.  But are they relevant to what you want to accomplish today?  Making business decisions from old beliefs is like running DOS software on our Windows 7.  Time to Upgrade!

How do you begin to change limiting beliefs?  Notice the results you are achieving and inquire: “What do I believe about this?”  If the belief is negative, limiting and outdated, reprogram it!  Consciously declare a new “truth” for yourself that is positive, affirmative and in the present tense.

Change your focus to what you do want for your business or your life.  As you change your focus, you will begin to see new possibilities and opportunities that were always there, but you weren’t looking for them!  A good example: A client was feeling that the program she was offering wasn’t valuable and that nobody wanted it. (Notice the negative belief at work here)?  I suggested she begin to find evidence for the value, to remember all the people whose lives or businesses had been changed by attending her programs, and she changed her approach and messaging to reflect the new belief that her offering was life changing.  Her next workshop sold out in 2 days.

Once you have established new beliefs, you ask the Universe for what you want for your company (or your life).  It’s important to state the “essence” of the outcome, such as, increased profits, innovation to meet market demands, the right people to do the job. The essence is what you concentrate on because there are many avenues for achieving the desired outcome.

Then make decisions and act as if the good were already delivered, and you will begin to attract the results.  Continue to hold on to the positive belief, even if things don’t “look” better right away.

The Universe will determine the specifics of how it will all happen and when.  It may take the form of an unexpected sales opportunity, a powerful idea that comes to you as you drive down the road or an introduction to the person at a meeting that can provide the resource you’ve been missing.

At that point, you need to be open to receive what you asked for!  As crazy as it sounds, sometimes we get so addicted to the struggle we don’t notice things have turned around and that it was easy and effortless.  We continue to struggle because, you guessed it, we “believe” it has to be hard!

Suggested Action Steps:

1.  Ask yourself and ask your management team: “Where are we limiting our business success by holding outdated beliefs of what’s possible?”

2.  Look at where things are flowing in your business and what seems stuck.  Think about what you believe about the aspects that are flowing, and what you believe about the areas that are stuck.  Could be very eye opening!

3.  Make a list of things you’d like to ask for.  Then ask!  Notice any resistance you have to asking for help, from others or from the Universe.

Robert Fritz sums it up this way: “If we limit our choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, we disconnect ourselves from what we truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”

Until next time,

Marla

Is there a WHY behind your WHAT?

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Perhaps my perspective is different than the general population. Perhaps I look at business, spirituality and profitability differently than the average CEO. Perhaps I am simply annoyed by people pushing their products, ideas, and beliefs down my throat. Perhaps you are like me and would rather do business with conscious companies and individuals that embrace the concept of living in a world that works for everyone.

Please understand here at The Inspired Business Center we do not condemn the companies that use outdated tactics and marketing strategies we simply choose to ignore their message and seek out more socially conscious and active organizations to financially support and partner with.

Not long ago during a planning meeting we began to consider why we do what we do. We started to compile a list and found that we do what we do simply because we love people. Now we also love business; we love the environment; we love collaborating; we love making money; we love serving an emerging paradigm of Spiritual Business practice; we love quite a few things and still the common denominator is that we love people. As we looked at the list we realized there were many more reason why we do what we do than there are things we do or even ways we do what we do.

All this introspection led to a chance encounter with a video from 2009. We had nothing to do with this video, and do we ever wish we had because is shares a simple perspective of how to transform a business from one that pushes itself down the throats of the consumers into one that is poised to truly change the way business is done.

The video was recorded at TedX Pugent Sound in September 2009. In this video Simon Sinek shares a perspective of How Great Leaders Inspire Action. I found the basic premise to be simple and yet incredibly inspiring. Simon asks us to always start from WHY. When you think about it WHY is an incredibly powerful or annoying question. Many teachers will tell you that WHY is an invalid question. Others will remind us that the answer to why is either I don’t know or because. In the business world why can be a powerful question if you have an answer. If you do not have an answer to this simple question now is the time to start considering your why.

Currently we are preparing a new project with our friend and collaborator Tom Zender. Tom’s a great guy and a truly inspirational leader. On a recently planning call we shared the why behind the idea for this project. His enthusiasm and partnership in this program was proof enough that our why would touch more than a few people. By trusting that the reason why we are building this is bigger than what we are building or how it will benefit you the project’s success is ensured.

The truth of business today is that more and more people care about why you do what you do rather than what you’re doing. It is all to common for a company to make a mistake, spill oil, fail to consider the safety of the consumer or just could care less about why you bought their product. These companies want you to believe that what they make is more important than why they make it. They want you to buy their products or services and would rather you do not know why they do what they do.

Spiritually conscious organizations however have flipped that coin and are now asking you to consider their values and beliefs, their why when evaluating who to support with your financial resources. We are asking you the same question. Do you know why your business coach does what they do? Do you know why your accountant or social media consultant is sharing their wisdom with you? Is it all about the bottom line, or is it about creating spiritual transactions?  You can rest assured that here at The Inspired Business Center we do what we do because we love people and we love seeing people accomplish their goals, desires, dreams and visions. We love supporting people as they step up to the entrepreneurial plate, or are seeking ways of creating spiritual environments in their workplace. We love people that are here to lead others through their wisdom and experience. Mostly we love people that want to learn, that want to be part of creating a worlds that truly works for everyone.

We love people so much that we would do what we do even if we didn’t make any money at it. Thankfully we do make money at what we do because people want to do business with a company that understands why they are here. How about you? Do you know your why? Would you like to discover your why? If you answered yes to any of these questions you’re the type of client we love. If you would like to learn more about your why give us a call and we’ll get to know each other and we promise not to sell you on what we do, but rather help you understand why we do what we do.

Until Next Time,

Robert

Where Spirituality and Money Meet

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Fans of the Inspired Business Center know that we are “Where Spirituality, Leadership and Profitability Meet.” The basis of our organization is to build a team of professionals and work together to raise the consciousness of everyone involved. Expanding our awareness of new opportunities, perspectives and ways of conducting business are central to the fulfillment of our vision for The Inspired Business Center.

Rev. Karen Russo

Rev. Karen Russo

It comes as no surprise that Rev. Marla has recently added a new member to her personal team of spiritually influential people. We would therefore like to introduce you to Rev. Karen Russo and her book The Money Keys. I have had the pleasure of working with Rev. Karen for a bit more than a year now and have been trained as a Money Keys Coach.

Rev. Marla just completed a 21 day immersion program that helped her to gain a new perspective of her money life.  Here is what she has to say about the experience, “I used the 21 Day  Money Keys Immersion program as an opportunity to do deep inner work about my beliefs and habits.  As each day unfolded, I discovered amazing ways in which my prosperity and success were being enhanced and supported and areas where I was playing small.  I also looked at some old thoughts that inspiring and life changing “work” can’t also be profitable.  When it was time to re-create the vision for my ministry, on day 20, I opened to greater possibilities for my work and my entire financial life. There is absolutely no fear and doubt that the vision will manifest.”

I am sure many of you have heard the adage about how your life will reflect the consciousness of the top 10 or 20 people you surround yourself with. Why wouldn’t you want to spend time around a woman that is an insightful and dynamic teacher? Reverend Karen combines universal spiritual principles and sound financial strategies to guide you toward conscious wealth creation. She is a powerful spiritual abundance mentor, and a sought-after keynote speaker. Karen teaches spiritual money mastery as well as how to be inspired, empowered, and productive in all aspects of life. I am sure you can see why she has had such a powerful influence on Rev. Marla and me.

Having invested a large portion of my time during the past year learning all I can from Rev. Karen I know she brings a unique blend of financial knowledge and spiritual direction to her wealth and consciousness building programs. She holds an MBA from Columbia University and has extensive experience as a corporate trainer, top-selling sales person, and financial services professional. Rev. Karen synthesizes religious ideas, philosophical truths, and scientific principles about how life works. In The Money Keys, she shares distinctive insights from more than 20 years of success in secular and spiritual pursuits.Money Keys Book Cover

There is simply no question that Rev. Karen and her programs get results. We would like to invite you take a deeper look at your Spiritual Money Consciousness and explore Rev. Karen’s ministry as well. Simply head on over to her WEBSITE and look around. You will find a wealth of information, resources and opportunities to be more fully engaged in living a financially prosperous and responsible life.

As always we want to remind you that our desire is to fully support you and your business in being a place where Spirituality, Leadership and Profitability Meet. Whether you’re looking to expand your money consciousness or learn new ways of being an effective leader, we are here to serve you in professional and emerging ways. Please let us know how we can best support the evolution of your consciousness and your business.

Until next time,

Robert

Pillar #1 Belief and Character

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

A Character of Belief

A Character of Belief

Last week we shared an overview of the 4 Pillars of Spiritual Entrepreneurship. As we explore each of the 4 pillars during the coming month it may help you to visualize each pillar as having a base which sits upon a foundation and a pinnacle upon which the roof of the structure rests.

Today we will explore the base of the first pillar: Belief and Character two distinct yet complimentary principles. Beliefs are the base building blocks of your life; they form the basis of your outlook and serve in establishing your internal map of reality. Although you might adjust your operations because of current events or other factors beyond your control your beliefs will always serve to shape your character.

How many times have you heard that the success of a restaurant relies on three aspects; location, location, location? This is a common belief system within the restaurant industry and beyond. However I have worked with restaurant owners that have done quite well in spite of what many would consider a poor location. If you ask them about this belief they will tell you it has nothing to do with their success. These successful restaurant owners chose not to believe that their location could adversely impact their business.

In today’s business climate you may hear many things from the media; we are in a recession, we are in a recovery, or we are looking at a double dip recession. Who should you believe? Regardless of which scenario you choose you will begin to, align your business and your operations with the belief you feel is most likely to come true, or is already a reality. The deeper truth is that we contribute our business’ experience of recovery, recession, success or failure based upon the beliefs we opt in to.

Hopefully we aren’t telling you anything you don’t already know. Yet how many of your employees know this simply truth? Do they choose to opt into limiting beliefs without your awareness? Are your manager, suppliers and collaborators subtly, not intentionally, sabotaging your business when they buy into the limiting beliefs.

All these beliefs lead to the development of our character. Simply stated your character is what distinguishes you from others. The question quickly becomes “Do you wish to be known as someone that follows the crowd or someone that blazes their own path”? I often teach that a visionary is one that makes their own way in the world without looking back to see if anyone is following them. How often have you heard people describe someone as a visionary? Your character is the out-picturing, the manifestation of your beliefs. Character serves to shape how others perceive you and whether they will follow you in business, honor your opinions, or even purchase your products or services.

Character serves as the pinnacle of this pillar as it is the higher expression of your foundational beliefs or worldview.  It is your character that supports the ceiling of whatever structure you own, operate or manage.

Building a solid and strong business requires not only the 4 pillars of spiritual entrepreneurship but a bedrock foundation as well. This foundation is your form of spiritually, religious or personal faith tradition.  Regardless of what label you place upon this aspect of your life the truth remains that you have been building your foundation from a very young age. The joy in this is that you can add to, strengthen and support your foundation through various means. At the Inspired Business Center we do not push any one faith tradition, but rather suggest you strengthen your own involvement with whatever form of spirituality suits you. We know a solid spiritual practice will strengthen your business as well. The beliefs taught and modeled in your place of worship can be an amazing example of how your beliefs create your reality and thus your character and support your business in turn.

Next week we shall continue our exploration of the 4 pillars by looking at how the pillar of Vision and Adaptability support the creating on your rock solid business and how you can engage others in the creation of the business you truly desire.
