Business Frustration

I don't know about you, but dividing myself into pieces has never resulted in effectiveness for me. It results in frustration and often saying the other f-word. Yes, you can live a spiritual life and use all f words except fascism. That would not work. But I digress.

Running a business for 23 years has taught me that when I separate myself into business, personal, spiritual, and volunteer modes and have to decide what's for dinner mode, I feel separate from my own soul and divinity.

I feel frustrated because I'm divided and not presenting as a whole experience of myself. We can't balance our work and personal lives. Integration is where success happens.

I have worked with some of the most dynamic, intelligent, heart-centered leaders and business owners over the last two decades, and the area where they create the most joy in their life is when they realize that separating themselves into compartments takes the pleasure out of being in business and being here as a human.

If one of our challenges is integrating our soul with our human self, doesn't it stand to reason that the rest of our lives being integrated would benefit us as well?

I'm aware that most employers will not see it this way but I don't want to talk to most employers, I want to talk to you. I want to talk to you as the boss of your own life. I want to talk to you as the boss of your own business if that's the case. I want to challenge you to see yourself as a whole entity and your business skills can be transferred to your personal life and vice versa.

Show me someone who pays their bills, is raising kids of all varieties, including pets, is contributing to their community, and remembers to take care of themselves most days, and I will show you someone who has the skills to run a business.

We have been taught the message of duality, where work stays at work, and home is home, where sometimes one has to suffer because of the other.

I know this is unnecessary, and I encourage everyone to consider what their life would look like if you took a whole you everywhere you went.

The subject of this week's podcast is business, but it's also about being a whole, conscious participant in this beautiful experience we get as humans.

I hope you'll tune in, leave a review, subscribe, and let me know your thoughts.

P.S. If you'd like a transcript of the podcast, head over to Youtube for subtitles.
