How to Feed the Soul of Your Business

If you really want a soul-inspired business, you must make time for inspiration a priority in your life. It can be gardening or riding a motorcycle, but you must make those things that feed your body/mind/soul a constant priority.

This all has to do with your bigger WHY. You must feel and feed the WHY, the DREAM, or what I call the SOUL of your business. That means you must take really good care of yourself.
Not doing that is the #1 pitfall to new (and some not so new) business owners. They become consumed by all the countless tasks and problems that are a normal part of running a business, and the focus and clarity about their purpose begins to wane.

When this happens, it is feedback that something needs to turn around. The normal cycle of feeling bad that you are not “on top” of things makes you drive even harder, and get more frantic. Based on the Law of Attraction, there is no way you can attain what you really want that way, unless you really want STRUGGLE.

Ask yourself, “Am I addicted to struggle?” Be honest. And be kind. We all learned many unhelpful ways to be in the world. Sometimes we all feel as if it is an uphill climb!

Being able to step back and look at what is working and what is not is an essential act of self-love if you want to make progress. Interestingly enough, the Latin root of the word progress is “proficere,” which means to profit. And that is the purpose of your business.

Your Assignment:

1. Ask yourself where you are struggling, and write it down. See if there are now or have been other situations in which you had a similar struggle. Look for the pattern. This helps you own it more fully, for one thing.

2. What is the feedback telling you? If you are in conflict, it is telling you that you are divided. If you are low on energy, it is telling you that you are empty. If you are angry, it is telling you that you need to set a boundary. If you are afraid, it is telling you that you have disconnected from Source. In fact, all of it is telling you that you perceive yourself to be disconnected from Source.

3. Commit to one thing that you know will bring you back to that connection. Write it down and set the time for it. Invite LOVE back into your life. Making that decision already sets the new course for you.

When you run your own business, how you show up in your life is reflected in your business, and vice versa. It is better to hold off on making any more business decisions, if you can, until you are reconnected to the Soul of your business, which means to yourself and your bigger WHY.
