Since I launched my own business nearly 6 years ago, I’ve done a huge amount of spiritual/personal growth/personal development work. Aside from my kids, my business has been the greatest driver of my growth.
All business owners would benefit from serious personal spiritual work. Why?
Because the single most important factor when it comes to your business success is believing in yourself (self-confidence) and accepting yourself for who you truly are (self-acceptance) and those only come with some serious spiritual backing.
Without growth work, self-confidence is often a masquerade of the ego. Self-acceptance a charade.
While I was financially and apparently successful before I embarked on my spiritual journey, I operated in a nearly perpetual state of fear and anxiety. It all depended on me and I was constantly afraid of dropping a ball. The weight of the world was on my shoulders.
Today, thanks to my spiritual work, I know something far bigger than me has got my back and no matter what I’m always taken care of.
I can rely on my true Self to always ensure my needs are met and to provide me with real security that comes from knowing I’ll never let myself down. Not to say I won’t fail. I’ve done that (and will continue to do that) a lot. But, I’ll always get right back up and try again because I have the faith of knowing my life is about something bigger.
