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.
