The busier life gets, the more we hunger for meaning. Of course, we also need to support ourselves. So, why not ‘intersect’ the two and start a spiritual business, or incorporate that aspect of your life into the business you have. Let’s talk about how to combine the search for meaning with the quest for income.
Spiritual business isn’t any one thing. It’s about bringing your core beliefs and values to the thing your most passionate about and turning it into a rewarding livelihood. Whether you’re a musician or an accountant, a counselor or an athlete, there is a way to turn your passion and your talent into your career. Bringing a spiritual focus to these endeavors is more about how you lead with your heart and who you serve, than it is about anything else.
If you’re starting a business, you need a plan. If you’re changing how you run your business, you need a plan. You don’t need an elaborate in-depth plan, like the type of plan you’d bring to the bank for a loan, but you do need a roadmap. If you don’t know where you want to end up and plan an effective to route to get there – guess what? You’ll probably end up somewhere else!
Every business needs a website and these days getting a site launched is relatively easy to do. Again, you don’t need anything fancy or elaborate, you need a presence. Start there and you can build and improve as you go. Remember, this is a journey and as on all journeys, you will change and adjust as you go along.
Everything gets done bit by bit. Consistency over time is what gets anything done and moves every goal forward toward its final destination. If you did only one task each day on your business plan, at the end of the year, you’d have accomplished more than 300 tasks. How about adding one thing to your website each day? At the end of the year, you’d have a robust website worthy of attention – providing what you share is of good quality.
The same is true of every task in your business. Don’t obsess about what you haven’t done, or need to do. Take some time to get quiet, get focused, decide what needs doing and then start in one bit at a time. Put your heart into your efforts, make every single thing you do a labor of love and your enterprise will reflect who you are, what you believe in and will support and attract the exact right people to you. I know, it sounds simple. That’s because it can be. Truly. Getting started is harder than keeping on going. Get started today and live the life you are mean to live.
