When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Do you believe this? Think about this again: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. The child is either stubborn... or determined. Which is more empowering and a way through to transforming and supporting the child to realize ways in which to change, to be more productive? The latter of course. The sales associate is either nervous or excited. Does that change the way in which the associate approaches her meeting? Of course it does! So...
What's the story you're telling yourself? Your staff? Because when you change your story, you change everything.
Now a quick thought about your Business Story:
Do people do business with companies? Or with people? That's right. People do business with PEOPLE. So to say there's nothing personal about business is like saying an ice cube has nothing to do with water!
Why does this matter? Because the story you're telling yourself, your employees, your clients, your partners... has the power to change everything; change for the sake of moving to the next level, to progressing to something better. Change your story, change your life. Change your story, change your business. Change your story, change the world.
As the business world evolves, in order to fully embrace its' role as global citizen + global catalyst for good, it must embrace the whole =
Heart + Head. Right + Left. Female + Male.
Make no mistake, Business IS PERSONAL: That's what makes a smarter kind of business, beautiful.
