Infinite Potential for Your Business:
Ecosystems Create Infinite Possibility

“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.”

“We are nature. Our every tinkering is nature, our every biological striving. We are what we are, and the world is ours…Your only difficulty is your unwillingness to unleash your potential fully upon it.”

Much has been said over the years about living your potential, personal power, limitless possibilities, etc. The vast majority of this messaging comes from the self-help industry which at last count was worth $11 billion  (Kathryn Schulz , Source: wikipedia.org: Wikipedia: Self-help: Statistics: In 2013 Kathryn Schulz examined "an $11 billion industry").

The self-improvement industry has always had its business champions. You will often see these self-made millionaires speaking publically about their rise to fame and fortune, often from humble beginnings or worse—from the lows of destitution and hardship.

What’s interesting is these people rarely speak holistically about their environment. The people, places, circumstances and other influences which together helped them begin living at their full potential (if indeed they are doing that—real success and what this world deems as such are rarely the same thing).

The term “self-help” is loaded. Yes, people must help themselves. We must make an effort, take action, do the work, endure challenges and overcome obstacles. We must participate in the process. But that process is as much about being done as it is doing. In other words, it’s not something we do alone.

“There comes a moment in every life when the Universe presents you with an opportunity to rise to your potential. An open door that only requires the heart to walk through, seize it and hang on. The choice is never simple. It’s never easy. It’s not supposed to be. But those who travel this path have always looked back and realized that the test was always about the heart. ...The rest is just practice.”

No one is an island.  Nothing exists in a vacuum. We prefer to follow the wisdom and guidance of those who have recognized that they were being guided: from within and without. There is a kind of universal plan at work in our lives, the same plan that we can see at work in nature and the world around us.

That same plan is at work within us and works through us as well. Our free-will is to heed its call or ignore it (submit to laziness, apathy, mediocrity, etc).  Self-help, then, is a matter of recognizing the difference between the false self (our ego-personality with all its petty desires) and our Higher Self (our true nature, a conscious individuated expression of oneness with all things).

“If the whole universe can be found in our own body and mind, this is where we need to make our inquires. We all have the answers within ourselves, we just have not got in touch with them yet. The potential of finding the truth within requires faith in ourselves.”

What does all this metaphysical talk have to do with business? Is not a business a collection of individuals? Is it not right that these individuals be conscious and express in thoughts, words and deeds the goals of the business in the marketplace? Is it not ideal for those goals to include benefits for one and all? What else does this sound like?

Ecosystems are a collection of individuals. The individuals are conscious (even if only to some tiny degree, according to their level of evolution) and express in actions and interactions the goals of the super organism—symbiotic and harmonious exchange of energies for the benefit of one and all.

Now imagine yourself a part of such an ecosystem. Imagine such an ecosystem was an integral part of your business.  Imagine if everyone in your organization had access to the infinite potential supported by multitudes of individuals living in harmony expressing the self-organizing goal of collective benefit.

Imagine the infinite potential which awaits you and your business.

“there is no planet, sun, or star could hold you if you but knew what you are.”
