Have you noticed that business is changing rapidly and in unexpected ways? Over at BlissTribe we have started to explore the new energies that will form the platform for business in the future.
One of my roles as a business coach is to inspire you to have the awareness that there is a different possibility available from what you see right now. How do you see the people that you work with in your business? Are they a contribution or do you just wish they would be? Does it drive you nuts that they aren’t? Would you like to change all of this?
Contribution is essential to the New Energies Of Business TM. If I am employing anyone – for my team or as a supplier of services to my business, the first thing I look at is ‘will they be a contribution?’ Not, are they saying they will be a contribution (people always tell us what we want to hear!) but, ‘truth, will they be a contribution or will they always be draining the possibilities and under-delivering on the potentials?’
Our interaction with others offers the possibility for us to be the greatest contribution we can be… and for them to see what else is possible! When we choose to contribute to our fullest capacity then we are the drop in the ocean that creates ripples everywhere!
So, would you rather be creating tsunamis of contribution or are you happy to keep the status quo in your business? If you’d like to create and generate a whole lot more then YOU could start being the contribution more often!
What’s interesting about contribution is that if you are genuinely contributing, it is not about what you get back… you are just enjoying the process of contributing! Earlier this year I contributed a whole lot of writing to a project I loved the idea of. I didn’t expect anything back – I was happy to just receive the joy I in actually doing the writing.
It was fascinating and instructive to watch how this organization has contributed back to me ten-fold in many different ways since then. Especially as I didn’t have a point of view that they needed to do anything! Recently they also engaged me to contribute to a number of other writing projects that truly are fun and joyful for me! So, how does it get any better than that? Contributions lead us to possibilities we could never create through force!
Of course, contributing to your fullest capacity occurs with ease when you are using your talents, gifts and abilities. There is no stress, frustration or anger when you love what you are contributing – your contribution offers you joy. Joy is not currently an energy or word connected to business very often. This is changing. So, what contribution can you be to more joy showing up in your business?
And would you be willing to take another look at your team and see how you could create more ease of contribution for everyone simply by letting go of your expectations and opening the door for them to contribute their talents and abilities in ways you hadn’t considered?
There is so much we can consider, create and change around the energy of contribution! If you would like to explore this topic and more please join us for New Energies of BusinessTM at Peregian Beach on Monday 29 August. We’ll be talking contribution, creating value, loving your work and so much more!!
