In my own life I have always prioritised heart made decisions, even when ‘on paper’ a different decision might look more finically profitable, I have gone with my intuition. It is my belief that what you choose with your authentic self, will work out to be more profitable in the end, in more ways than money. There is an African proverb which says ‘if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far go together’. I think this is also true in business, if you want to make a quick buck, you will step on a few heads, if you want to have a long and successful business work as a team.
So why am I pointing out the obvious to you spiritual types reading this blog? Well this blog has all come about because I have been aware that people are leaning towards a Dog eat Dog world. It seems to be a little worse in the economic crises. For example I have just joined the meet up group of a new colleague and friend of mine. He is a relationship coach and a very good one; he cares and is authentic in what he is trying to do. I think what he is trying to do is the same thing as I am trying to do; bring more love to more people on the planet. When I joined his group, someone else from a similar website tried to poach me. Intuitively I felt this other company trying to make a quick buck from vulnerable people, which was validated by the lack of respect for someone else’s efforts.
We are in difficult times for people whose work is a ‘luxury item’. Many self employed business people are feeling the pinch. But if you lose your heart you lose everything, making heartfelt intuitive decisions is more important at difficult times than ever, as is being good to each other.
