Being vs. Doing
Western culture is heavily focused on doing.
“Follow these seven steps and you will become a millionaire.”
Processes like that can work. You can follow a set of steps to build a company and become a millionaire.
But here’s what most of us miss. We miss the being element.
By that I mean, how are you being on a moment-to-moment, day-to-day basis? What are the emotional states you live in?
How much of your day do you spend in . . .
- guilt, fear, doubt, worry, anxiety, desire, apathy, scarcity, anger, judgment, blame, or pride?
- courage, optimism, hope, empathy, wisdom, joy, compassion, abundance, love, peace, and creativity?
When you shift things on the being level, the doing gets a lot easier.
