After working exclusively in the corporate world for the past 2½ years in Phoenix, AZ, I am back in my own coaching and consulting business – and sooo very glad to be!!
The Computer Spirit: Inspiring and coaching you to reflect your purpose and passion in business and marketing.
It’s often challenging to be authentic, to express oneself, and to be creative while working in the corporate world, where you work a set schedule, are placed in a box, and your spirit goes unrecognized and is unable to thrive. I know, as I speak from much experience.
If you simply LOVE your present job, then kudos to you! I know that’s possible. I’m delighted that your spirit is filled with joy and is thriving.
But perhaps you find your present role suffocating, and think that being your own boss, having your own business, might sit well with your soul. It’s certainly worth exploring how your purpose and passion in life might best be served and best serve others if you were an entrepreneur, don’t you think?
If you’re already in your own business, you’ve probably already realized that you have more opportunity and flexibility to be and to express your authentic self – for your soul to shine – than in most cases when working for a large company. When your spirit is nourished, you have an increased capacity and ease in which to be
- creative and prosperous
- giving and generous
- at peace.
Is your present business and marketing reflecting your life purpose and passion?
That’s not to say it’s always easy being in one’s own business. But personally when I weigh both the positive and not-so-positive aspects of being in my own business, the pros far outnumber the cons. I’ve been in my own business since 1999, but apparently needed a dose of life in the big city corporate world again for a couple years to remind me what my spirit needs to get nourished, to be inspired, and in turn, to inspire others. Work simply cannot be just about the money. I make a greater difference and contribution to helping others when in my own enterprise – and have more fun and joy in the process! Perhaps you can relate?
And, so I am eagerly and enthusiastically back in my own business. As I help you and others, my spirit is filled with joy and gratitude to be reflecting my purpose and passion in my business.
Of course, I appreciate that there are individuals who do not want the responsibilities that come with the territory, whose personality is not a good fit, who have obligations which preclude stepping out, etc. I say that whatever works for your spirit so that it will thrive, evolve, and be joyful, follow that passion, follow that path. Keep in fit spiritual condition.
If Not Now, When?
However, if your spirit is withering and dying in your present environment, with time marching on, I ask,
“If not now, when?”
When will you take action towards nourishing your spiritual being through your work life and follow your life purpose and passion?
Spending Your Time
Since you spend so much of your awake time earning an income and being in a work environment, don’t you think it is crucial for that time to be meaningful and promote your growth – spiritual as well as intellectual?
I know that I want to spend my life – my time – doing what I love, what I’m passionate about. When I do what I love, I do what I do best. I spend my time doing what I do best.
How about you?
Is your business reflecting your mission, your passion? Are you spending your time doing what you love, doing what you do best?
