Often times those of us in business have a certain mindset when it comes to how we are supposed to do business. And many times we try to do business like others say we should do business. While it is acceptable to take into account what others tell you about business success, it is not acceptable to operate a business that is based on what others think it should be and not on your uniqueness.
It is your difference that makes you stand out in business and not a “cookie cutter” version of others. God created you to be unique for a reason and the real you must be enlightened in your business. How boring would the corporate world be if we were all the same? How would we stand out to attract our dream customers? And how would we really love what we do? Mixing in with everyone else is not a pull factor, it can actually cause you to lose your job with clients seeking your uniqueness. If you try to fit in and be like everyone else, there will always be something missing … and that’s you!
Your story, your passion, your purpose, and your divine gifts cannot shine through when camouflaged by someone else’s story, passion, purpose, and divine gifts. It must be authentic in business. When we are not authentic in business, it is very discouraging and frustrating. It can also make us dissatisfied and dissatisfied. And that is not the reason we were called to work. Our business should bring us joy, satisfaction and satisfaction in life. Our business should be a reflection of who God designed us to be.
When I broke the rules in business, my business changed in a completely different direction. I was once told that business and spirituality don’t mix. But that didn’t really resonate with me. I tried that and an important piece of my business was missing, and that was me. Spirituality is important to me, and once I included spirituality as part of my business, it felt amazing and started to attract the people I love to work with. Look, I discovered something, and that something was that there is room in this universe for all kinds of inspired businesses. God would not have called us to work if the space was too crowded for us to serve others.
There shouldn’t be a disconnect between our true selves and our entrepreneurial selves. If that is the case, what is the point of being an entrepreneur? Being a purposeless carbon copy of someone else who told us we should be in business is very boring and out of date. I’m glad I decided to break the rules because life is too short to live in a box. So frame your business based on what resonates with you, and when you do, you can serve others in a more authentic, powerful, and transformative way.
