So how does spiritualism help in entrepreneurial success? Let us try to figure it out. First, it helps you mind your thoughts. Napoleon Hill in his book “Think and Grow Rich” identifies the concept of how carefully choosing our thoughts can produce success “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”
We come across many leaders believe that to get the job done right, they need to do it
themselves. But incrementally turning over portions of responsibility to your colleagues and peers, you can boost collaborative success that can be rewarded to the individual and the entire team in turn enhancing performance and ensure a smooth transformation. It is important to develop the mindset to detach from the closeness. If you can surround yourself with talented team members, you can lean back into the deep soulful knowing that everything will unfold as it’s divinely meant to.
Spirituality also teaches us self-awareness, to be aware of your motives, your goals, and your expectations. Maslow’s hierarchy showed that to reach the highest level in the pyramid, self- actualization through conscientiousness is the key. It is important to create a deep spiritual connection with yourself to develop an inspirational leadership style. Spirituality supports being humble and constantly staying open to the countless learning opportunities that go with entrepreneurship.
When you are crystal clear on the intention of your business, the universe will show off its
infinite power to organize and line things up to support the achievement of your goals.
If we release the list of creative desires and surrender it to destiny, trusting that when things don’t seem to go my way, there is a reason and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those I have conceived. Failure is the stepping stone to success.
Being spiritual brings to the forefront that true success comes from adding value to the lives of those we work with and the customers our business provides for, and as long as that is at the root of your intention for your business, there’s nothing that will stop success from flowing to you.
