The desire to seek something different and have fun and enjoy your life, is business. As I always say, your life is your business, your business is your life. If you have blood running through your veins and get out of bed in the morning, you are creating your life, which means you are in business.
I recently spoke to Shannon O’Hara, creator and founder of Talk to The Entities, on my OM Time radio show. So many people don’t see business in the same way that Shannon and I do. Because of the projections of this reality, people think that they can’t do business because they didn’t go to business school or failed at maths, etc. This can be such a huge deterrent for anyone who doesn’t fit into that mould.
Shannon’s desire to have fun in her life and work has resulted in her choosing and instituting different ‘businesses’ that she didn’t even realise were businesses at the time! She used to think she hated business, until she realised that her life was her business. Shannon then started to systematise her business and it has since become massive. She has realised that she can be herself and she can succeed in the business of her life.
Initially, the tools of Access Consciousness were just something Shannon used in her own life; she didn’t see it as a business potential. Then she started facilitating small classes, doing sessions with people, and began to develop parts of Talk To The Entities, which is now one of her main businesses that creates revenue.
As Shannon began using the tools of Access Consciousness in her business, the change she noticed in people’s worlds was so dynamic compared to what she had been achieving in her job as a Pilates instructor. Eventually, it became obvious how much fun doing the Access classes was compared to the Pilates studio. So Shannon took a leap of faith and quit her reliable income job for facilitating Access Consciousness. She knew she had to at least try and asked the universe for support. She still didn’t realise that facilitating Access was a business; she was just doing it because it made her life more enjoyable and fun!
So many people, like Shannon, follow the energy of what they enjoy and find themselves in business without necessarily calling it that, because business is about creating your life. People might go to business school, but do they learn how to create their lives from those courses? What if something totally different is possible?
To me, business is about creation. Every business I look at is about creating something different. There is so much out there that you can actually create. If you are not doing something that you love, why are you doing it?
This reality says you need a business plan, a structure and a set way of doing things. What I’ve seen, is that if you create your business that way, you will drive yourself crazy. Instead, I prefer to have an awareness of the future possibilities for the business and ask what I can institute today to contribute to creating that future.
By asking a question, information can come from anywhere. When you hear something, don’t conclude that that is the answer. Just know it is a possible choice and idea that’s available. Be willing to receive the information and possibilities from everywhere.
You cannot come to a conclusion about what is going to create or expand your business. If you are willing to create something different, and ask for the fun of creating your life, then it is amazing to see what will actually show up! Joy is the absolute magic potion with everything! As Shannon said during the OM times show, “Being happy is the super power that everyone has, yet is not willing to choose or use”.
If you are enthusiastic about your business and your life, what can be created? The only thing that can damage enthusiasm is of you are not willing to be it, receive it and have it. This reality will always try to bring you back to having to plan, or people will say things like ‘that’s a big risk’, etc., yet from the fun and the joy, you can create anything!
