For the world to enlighten we must first enlighten, and bring this higher awareness into every facet of our lives including business. Capitalism affords the opportunity to aspire to achieve a better life, liberty and happiness, but all too often also breeds greed and corruption. At a lower state of consciousness the ends justifies the means, at a higher state it benefits society. In a “materialistic” culture money becomes the God, that we seek and humans become devalued.I have spent a lifetime studying God and money, and from my perspective when serving others is the goal, greater good and profit result. I have a plan, a way that brings out the best in capitalism and it is simply this:
Rather than trying to make money, our goal as individuals and businesses should be to make a difference. If we can make a real contribution, that contribution is valued and we become valued and money comes. This is the key to the Law of Attraction: it’s not trying to get what you want, but helping others with what THEY need or want. If we only seek to benefit ourselves, or a select few, then we miss the greater value of making a difference. Making a difference, making a contribution to other’s lives, is what life is all about; and it’s good for business too. We find greater purpose and meaning when we make a contribution. Just making money will not fulfill you, making a difference will.
If we really do care and want to make a difference, then we think green, we think sustainable, renewable and what is in the best interest of others including the generations to come. To seek to make money and not account for the costs in terms of its long term affects on our society, our natural resources, and our environment is a short term gain (financial) at a long term cost, which is bad for business and our society. To promote products and services that benefit the well being of all, through your purchases and investments, adds value to the world, to spend and consume for pure self interest is short sighted and costly to society. The more conscious we are the happier we are both individually and collectively.
To improve the world we must first intend to. As we think prosperity, happiness and peace, we create it. The world around you is a reflection of your state of consciousness. When you care about the welfare of your employees, they provide greater productively and loyalty to your company. When you care about your customers, they support your business. This has been tested again and again and proven to be true. Think in terms of what you can do for others and watch your business grow… and your heart; profit as a prophet.
