You can know everything about investment schemes, financial strategies, real estate investment, and the top secrets of high finance. But if your awareness, or consciousness, concerning money is based on the scarcity paradigm, then you will never have the sense that you have enough money.Read more
Your ability to lead your business to extraordinary success is directly related to your consciousness around money and prosperity. If you focus your consciousness towards scarcity and lack, you will draw limited amounts of money and success to you and your business.Read more
Money comes from our mindset and our thoughts. If we think "We have to work hard for money", it will certainly be hard to generate money. If you say "It is not possible for you to be rich", it will probably be true for you. Your points of view can directly sabotage your wealth potential.Read more

To have a phenomenal life and truly be the contribution, we have to be willing to live outside of the normal box. When we have a phenomenal life we will not ever care what anybody thinks about our life. We know what in our life is generative and what is not, we don’t need anyone to tell us what is great about our life.
Many entrepreneurs are setting up new ventures with gusto, enthusiasm and confidence.
The difficulty is that mostly they lack strategic awareness.
Strategic awareness is a paradoxical blend of intensity of awareness and the ability to take action strategically. It is the ability to access knowledge and information beyond what is known in the world at the present time. With advanced strategic awareness, entrepreneurs will be able to capture new opportunities and new possibilities. They would be able to conceive new ideas, and develop strategies to bring those ideas into existence. They are more likely to see trends outside their industry that could affect the positioning of their business, and they generate new growth opportunities.
We have not been trained to develop strategic awareness in our education. So much focus on defining, quantifying, and identifying who we are according to this reality. So much focus on past reference points, on conventional business strategies and on competition. It never occurs to anyone to talk about the value of awareness, the value of curiosity and being the question, of the ability to receive everything without judgment.
We live in a time of accelerating change in the global landscape. Globalization, environmental calamities, technological advances, and other complex forces are buffeting us like never before. To thrive and flourish in these circumstances, we must expand our awareness and formulate generative strategies for our business and our life. The ability to prosper and thrive in tough times is what sets high-profit businesses apart from ones that are barely scraping by.
Those who start a business find out that the work of running a successful business is a lot harder than expected. However, we are now surrounded by more possibilities and opportunities than at any time in our history. The real question is how do you access these opportunities and connect with these new possibilities?
We live in a time of accelerating change in the global landscape. The changes that are taking place globally are unprecedented in their scope. They are generating unlimited opportunities and inimitable threats. If you can perceive these changes as strategic advantages and opportunities, you will be more likely to recognize a new possibility.
The ultimate power in this reality is the ability to change and to choose. . . . . . . . . . . The only way to create you as normal, average, real and the same as everybody else is by never claim and acknowledge your ability to change and to choose. Who you choose to be right now is what creates a different possibility by what you choose to change. There is no limit to what you are capable of changing if you are willing and if you choose it. It is your choice to function from consciousness, unconsciousness or anti-consciousness.
It is your choice to choose, to change reality and create your life.
If you do not choose, that is also a choice. Be willing to be aware of what gets created by what you choose or do not choose.
The recession has weeded out many business players that were stuck in the scarcity and survivalist mentality of contextual reality. In recent years, we have observed that leaders who were content to rise with the tide of the economy have also fallen with it. The big risk today is staying with the herd and copying what others are doing. Not adjusting to the new environment or simply being unaware of other possibilities accounts for many business failures.
Too often people are choosing to conform to the demands of the world, and often allow themselves to be paralyzed by contextual reality. That's one of the biggest things most unsuccesful business have been doing to themselves to limit their possibilities.
Most people are content to obey the rules and be in agreement with contextual reality in order to fit, in order to know where they can benefit, where they can win, and how to avoid losing. They tend to find false comfort within the confines of contextual reality. Too often they fail to realize that although they might feel secure, with the business-as-usual mindset in place, they will not be able to generate their business from the edge of infinite possibility.
In this tumultuous business environment, doing business-as-usual is a formula for business derailment and financial meltdown. To prosper and thrive in the decade ahead, leaders have to think differently about reinvigorating their business.
So to get your sparkle back you must be willing to let go of all the timeworn conventional business models that keep your business from being remarkable.
Just imagine what your business and your life would be like if you stopped functioning on autopilot and began to generate your business with strategic awareness and prosperity consciousness.
Being a leader is not the same as acting as one,
and calling yourself a leader is not the same as being one.
People who choose leadership or who are given the opportunity to be a leader, have three choices that they can make. They can choose to be a Conscious leader, an Unconscious leader, or an Anti-conscious leader.
To evolve from leadership to conscious leadership, leaders must have a sincerity and willingness to be conscious leaders, and they must demand of themselves to choose consciousness, no matter what it takes. The first question that leaders must ask themselves is “Do I have a sincere aspiration and willingness to be a conscious leader?” The answer can only be ‘yes’ or ‘no’, because wishful desire does not provide a fertile inner ecology required for consciousness to expand. Sincerity and willingness are essential, because they facilitate consciousness to expand its possibilities by motivating the leader to demand of themselves to choose consciousness.
