“Collaboration ~ Your Ultimate Gift to the World!”
Networking and Collaborating are two words you frequently hear in business where you professionally offer your innate gifts and talents to others with the intent to connect and grow your businesses by creating a win-win. Yet, we are most likely not so giving of those benefits of knowledge, experience and service that we are offering to others, to ourselves.
The best networking and collaborative ventures to exponentially grow your business come when you make YOU your top priority to serve and satisfy. Once you recognize that all of your life experiences are a direct reflections of self, you can then begin to make the changes you desire to experience on the outside by diligently working on the inside of you through personal development. If you are experiencing lack in any area of your business whether it be in creativity, prosperity or right-relationships, you then need to look within to see where you may be creating the scarcity that is being reflected to your outer world.
For instance, if you are experiencing an insufficient supply of creativity, you then want to look at how often are you taking the time to personally co-create and play? Are you indulging yourself in an artistic creative expression such as playing, writing or singing with music, dancing, painting, drawing, sculpting, photography, literature writing or journaling, gardening, designing, building collecting or making something? How often are you engaging in playtime?
If you are experiencing lack with prosperity, you then want to look at where are you not being generous to yourself? Are you splurging on yourself with quality and luxury or are you limiting yourself based on the price? Do you receive compliments well and with gratitude or do you dismiss and downplay them? Do you allow others to give to you with ease or do you push it away when offered?
If you are experiencing lower vibrational relationships or connections, you then want to look at where are you not being good to yourself? Do you regularly pamper and romance yourself with flowers, candles, bubble baths, full body massage, facial, manicure and pedicure? How often are you listening, playing, singing or dancing to music? Do you act, think and speak lovingly towards yourself? Are you exercising, dancing, stretching, doing yoga, making time for meditation and prayer, breath work and take walks outside? Are you drinking plenty of water and eating your daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables? How often are you nurturing YOU? How often are you laughing?
When you take the time to observe and reflect on how you are valuing and treating yourself, is when you’ll see the answers to the questions that are lacking in your outer realm and the solutions to get you back on track to living the life of your dreams with purpose and passion.
