Answering Our Need to Know with a Powerful Question
Our need for business wisdom continues. For nearly thirty years, my message to business leaders has been simple: If you want ongoing growth and profitability, keep your focus on possibility.
There are two major factors that limit our ability to recognize and expand possibility in business: first, the fear of failure and, second, the need to “know.” Both concepts are rooted in society’s point of view that business, as with life, is determined by a fundamental set of rules. People teach us that there is a right and wrong answer to everything.
The greatest challenge with this point of view is that it often prevents our business from becoming all that it can be. When we fear to be wrong, we make choices based on what is right rather than what is possible. When we search for familiar answers or answers that make sense to us, we are basing our decisions on what has already been done before, rather than what it is possible to create.
Creating Business Opportunity in Unlimited Potential
The Joy of Business® is about creativity. It is about expanding what is possible, inviting in unknown opportunity and creating a future that is not necessarily rooted in the past. The Joy of Business® is about unlimited potentiality, non-judgement, and non-duality.
Therefore, if we are to truly connect with the joy of our business and business wisdom, it is vital that we see beyond our desire to be ‘right’ and to have all the answers. Instead, we must be bold enough to sit in the space of unknowing and curiosity.
Asking questions is the easiest, most powerful way to unlock the potential of any business. When faced with a choice, an excellent tool to use is the light and heavy tool from Access Consciousness®. When you ask a question, pay attention to how you feel in your body. If you have the sense of lightness and expansion, it is true for you. If you feel like you have knots in your stomach or a heavy sensation in your body, it’s usually that it is not true for you.
