The Art of being…in business

13 Oct 2015   Shanti Gowans
 
Business is about building a sustainable way of making the impact that you care about making.

Profitability is an important part of that, because if you’re losing money, it is not sustainable.

But it’s not all about the money; the money is just a part of making it all happen.

A pattern we see over and over again in the world is, if you are not working in service of a great outcome, in a sustainable way, then sooner or later, your number is going to be up.

Because business is about finding a sustainable way of making the income that you care about making.

Entrepreneurs take their dreams for how the world can be better, and bring them to waking life, so that everyone else can see what they know to be possible.

That’s what entrepreneurship and business are really about, and I’m honoured to share that mission with you. That’s why we do what we do, and I know that the same is true for our entire community.

So next time you hear someone complain about the evils of business, call them on it. Stand up with pride for your role as an entrepreneur, and call the single-focused profit motive the perversion of business that it really is.

Then get back to work, because there are people out there waiting for the better world that you’re working to create. 

If you have felt that there is more to life than just "getting by"?
More to life, even, than having a successful career?
If so, you're not alone.
You see there's a secret that the world's most fulfilled people understand, which has nothing to do with their bank account or their job.
It comes down to purpose.
To meaning.
To a deep sense of conviction and clarity about their mission in life.
When you're able to connect with this level of your being, things begin to change for you in incredible ways.
You feel charged. Energized. Inspired. Liberated.
Driven by something bigger than yourself.
People around you begin to feel your presence and passion... and you may just experience a phenomenon where it seems the universe itself seems to have your back and support you.
This feeling is difficult to describe using words, it is a state of of being limitless.

If you are struggling with these concepts, read my books:
