It may seem like a strange concept but trust me it works. Successful business owners have a balance between their body, mind and spirit. It works something like this. One aspect of a business owner is as a visionary with a creative idea and the undeniable urge to see this vision manifested. This brings out the the organizer side of the business owner. The organizer side takes this vision, adds color, texture, and has a passion to make it a reality. The organizer grounds our business in a physical reality. The organizer, or our analytical side, creates the structure for our vision. Finally, there is the do-er side of us. This is the side of the business owner that knows how to provide the product or service of our business.
These three aspects of a business owner are familiar to each of us. When we are able to move easily between these three aspects of ourselves then our business has the chance to thrive. When we are stuck in one or the other aspects then we are out of balance and, not surprising, so is our business. From an intuitive perspective our business is a physical manifestation of who we are. The more we know about ourselves the more we know about our business. Notice for yourself. Can you move easily between each of these three parts? Are you more comfortable as the visionary and neglect the doer side? Perhaps you are comfortable but have lost the passion of the visionary. Try the intuitive exercise below to get your business back in balance and moving toward greater success.
Intuitive Exercise: Find a quiet place to sit, close your eyes and quiet your body. Take a deep breath. Bring your attention and awareness within you. Imagine (or see in your minds eye) three roses about 6 inches in front of you. Each rose represents one of the three aspects described above. Look intuitively at each rose. What do you notice about these three roses? Is one bigger than the others? Is the vibration of each rose the same or different? Don’t think or analyze. This is an intuitive exercise. Notice more. Now imagine each rose as vibrant and energized. When you can see this balance your meditation is complete.
