Feature Article | The Paul Principle: For Better or Worse, It’s All About You. (Excerpted from the Money, Meaning and Beyond Book, Chapter 26)
I see it frequently.
When people grow, their business grows. When people don’t, their businesses don’t. and sometimes, when businesses get inherited or acquired, the business will show a spurt or dive, based on the ethos of the new owner.
When opportunity knocks, are you ready?
If you knew you could have everything you wanted right now, would you know what to say?
Are you – your character, your development, your greater Self – ready?
If there is one thing I invite you to really embrace as you go about life in the next thirty days, it’s this. Work the Paul Principle. Make it work for you by:
- Saying NO to bland. Stand for something.
- Cultivating a vision. Get clear about what you believe and mean it. Lead.
- Conditioning yourself emotionally. You and your business will weather many ups and downs. Nurture your strength of spirit just like you work out your body for the great race.
- Articulate what you want and why. Don’t worry about how just yet.Being prepared to say a resounding ‘yes’ to help that wants to find you, and that many times, is sitting right on your doorstep.
Be diligent and unflinching about yourself and your growth. Start now in whatever shape or form that looks like to you.
Your success (financial and other) as a business owner is DIRECTLY linked to your ability to evolve yourself. It’s the Paul Principle and it’s at work in each and every one of us. Remember it.
How will you work the Paul Principle in your business over the next thirty days? Please post your comments here …I look forward to receiving them.
