I used to be a chief accountant, loved numbers but I remained unfulfilled in my job so after 18 years I left my profession and started to work as a care assistant then a manager in care. Hoping that direct connection with people will result me living a fulfilled life. As the years passed by, my cup became fuller but still not full. My solution came up only when I took responsibility and started my own business as a Shiatsu practitioner then as an online entrepreneur. I realised only those clients came back who I found that deep connection. Even who told I am wonderful therapist but we didn’t have that deep human connection, they didn’t come back later.
The biggest conclusion drawn out for me that the most important thing, quality or techniques which helped to achieve any success in business was
CARING and make the deepest possible human connection
I know that it sounds like a totally lame statement but this is the one that comes in the number one! So many people are overly interested in their bottom line that they forget that people want to feel like humans when they interact with your business. Actually along these interactions I started to be more and more fulfilled and doing my job with joy and love. So by now I have this flow of love around me wherever I go in business or my private life I put the focus, attention and care toward people then connection is created. It makes everything easier even in the future so it allows the energy to flow easily.
I’d also add being myself. We all fear being judged or what people will think of us but it’s one we can all implement without any financial investment. People buy from people and it’s important that you are able to make connections with people, from relationships and help without expectation.
What also are a key; having solid business foundations and bringing together a strong brand, which actually me. I examine my message regularly and I know what my mission is. I am consistent of my marketing and I always show up.
What really matters in life to live our potential and follow our dreams. Life won’t always be pixies and unicorns but it’s important to follow your bliss and do what makes you happy.
So I know now we could love our job when you have the passion but you could be really fulfilled if you make that human connection when you know and feel you are giving back whatever you got from the Universe and serve others.
If you ask me any advice for life, firstly I would say, don’t think of yourself as small
– your reality can be as big as your belief! You can achieve amazing things.
Secondly, I believe that we’re pre-programmed to expect things to be hard and to look for the most complicated answer. Keep everything simple but significant.
