Entrepreneurs all have one thing in common. They all have a desire to create; they all have a desire to bring their visions into the world.
Stepping into the shoes of an entrepreneur takes a leap of faith and requires so much more than just a degree from business school.
Being an entrepreneur is about lighting that flame that lives within and using your passions, instincts, and talents to bring something revolutionary into the world.
As an entrepreneur, the most important thing you can do is to become consciously aware of who you really are.
This is not just about being aware of your physical body, but being aware of your emotional, mental and spiritual body as well.
This allows you to connect with a bigger vision and gives all that you are doing a greater sense of purpose.
When you feel a sense of purpose with everything that you do, it gives you a stronger motivation and a deeper satisfaction in life. It also helps to give you confidence in moving forward and allows you to feel supported, no matter what circumstances life may bring you.
Becoming a conscious entrepreneur is really about finding the satisfaction in what you are doing beyond the money and the accolades.
It is about building something bigger than just yourself, and working from a powerful place of purpose.
But how do you get to that place? Is it really possible?
Conscious entrepreneurs are a rare but growing breed. More and more businesses and startups are adopting a more conscious approach and seeing results.
A conscious business is one that:
- Is created with purpose to make the world a better place in some way
- Does no harm to others or the environment
- Is kind and fair to employees, customers, and clients
- Treats everyone with equal respect
- Has a bigger vision than just profits or material gains
- Gives back to the community
The only way you can create a conscious business is by being conscious yourself.
Once you have achieved that, whatever ideas or visions you create will automatically hold a higher consciousness.
There is no real “how to” guide when it come to raising your level of consciousness as everyone is unique and everyone has a unique journey. But here are some things that you may find helpful –
Everyone is creative and when you can tap into that creative flow of energy that lives within you, it can help you to become more aware of who you are.
Simply spend 30 minutes a few times per week doing something creative. This could be writing, drawing, painting, playing music etc. Just do whatever you need to get your creative juices flowing.
Conscious breathing is a great way to tune into your body and become more aware of your emotional, mental and spiritual state.
Simply take 5-10 deep, long breaths at the start and end of every day. This will help you to connect with your centre and feel more grounded.
The easiest and fastest way to raise your level of consciousness is to focus on things of joy. Gratitude is a great way to tap into joy as it helps you to tune into the present moment.
At the end of every day, make a list of 7 things that you feel grateful for. It could be something as simple as the sunrise or something more detailed. When you go into the space of gratitude, it helps to lift you into a state of higher consciousness.
These three suggestions can easily be incorporated into your everyday routine and can make a big difference on the path towards consciousness.
Becoming a conscious entrepreneur is really about becoming a conscious person. And becoming a conscious person is really about being at peace with who you really are.
When you work from this place, anything is possible and life suddenly takes on a whole new meaning.Opinions expressed here by Contributors are their own.
