Be Respons-able vs Respons-ible

Originally posted Strategy Stream 

If you are acting from feelings of responsibility in your business, more than likely you’re experiencing a sense of disconnection from joy. Being “ible” vs “able” implies a disconnect from the deep and essential internal Self: it implies a belief that empowers the external world more than your deep essential, authentic presence of being aka “I must, have, should do (fill in the blank), in order to (fill in the blank).”

When you act from motivations of obligation, like “I should, I must, I can, therefore I have to,” you act from inwardly contracting energies. A contraction inwardly most often results in feelings of despondency, and loss of energy.

As you come into a more profound state of being, whereby you honor your inner connection and authentic nature even more, the natural result is recognizing the “Responsibility Energy” as divisive and almost destructive rather than something that inspires you or any one else.  It is a very different energy than being response-able.

Being response-able in all areas of your business and life aligns more with motivations that are rooted in spontaneous expressions of loving kindness and true purposeful motivations. Being respons-able allows you to authentically “be”.

Don’t allow a habitual pattern of “Responsibility Energy” to dictate your actions. Be alive, present, aware and simply responsive in a pure and non-contrived manner.

Be present, joyful and response-able.

Expand your view


Originally uploaded by shareedavenport

In all of your business endeavors, always remember your physical set of eyes, as well as your spiritual set of eyes.

With your physical eyes you see the material world and act accordingly, based on what you see. Typically, this is the set of eyes we use when we plan and take actions in our businesses.

But, as we all know, there is more to life than the material world.

With your spiritual eyes, you can see beyond appearances. Instead of allowing appearances to determine what you think is real and reacting to it, you can decide what is beyond the appearance and calmly continue to invoke what you choose. This practice permits the real you to come forth.

Every time you choose to act from a balanced perspective of both material and spiritual, every time you invoke rather than react, every time you choose love over fear –you get closer and closer to the real you and the real world. By doing so, you cause a change in what you see.

As you align more and more with the real you and the real world, this higher reality will permeate and expand all aspects of your business,

and your life.

Hip-Hop, Yoga, and Being Super Rich

Guest post by Francesca Brava 

Think of the “godfather of hip-hop” Russell Simmons and you definitely think RICH. He founded the music label Def Jam as well as clothing lines such as Phat Farm and American Classics. With a net worth estimate of $340 million, he is the third richest figure in hip-hop, only behind artists Diddy and Jay-Z. But do you also think of yoga and spirituality when you think of Russell Simmons?

Simmons is the author (along with Chris Morrow) of Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All. His business website www.rushcommunications.com relates his many business successes, which “have spanned music, film, television, fashion, video games, online and financial services” and his activism, which “has encompassed all of the areas touched by his businesses, including poverty, education, social justice and inclusion.”

It’s easy to daydream about being incredibly rich, but Simmons is more than just about having a lot of money. He grew up in a lower-middle class African-American community in Queens and recently was named one of the 25 most influential people of the last 25 years by USA Today. He has two beautiful daughters he adores (and a beautiful, well-known, and accomplished ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons). Not only does he practice yoga, meditation, and philanthropy, he also eats no meat. He believes that there is a connection between his spiritual practices and his worldly success.

The title of his book Super Rich might make you think it’s all about accumulating money, but to Simmons that term means “the state of needing nothing.” That’s powerful! THE STATE OF NEEDING NOTHING. Imagine being in that state. Surely, you’d feel super rich. But how do you achieve that state? Simmons says that we have to “clear out the clutter and quiet the noise” that keeps us from “hearing” or connecting with the happiness…or the richness…that is already inside of us.

He says that we attract the world to us by giving until the world can’t live without what you have to offer. Huh? To get rich, you just give away what you have? YES! He quotes yogis: “You never lose what you have given” and says that if you “just show the world a fraction of the sweetness and honesty that’s in your heart, it’s going to come running after you.”

What else can you do to attain the STATE OF NEEDING NOTHING?

  • Access stillness…that “quiet, peaceful mental state that allows you to be completely present in life.” Then you can become “totally connected with the inspiration and imagination that’s inside [you].”
  • “Stay focused on your work without any expectations for, or concern with, the fruit of your labor” and “operate out of a zone of pure focus and clarity” like Michael Jordan did on the basketball court.
  • Be a business yogi and “only do shit you believe in. Period!” Vegan Simmons, for example, says he would never invest in a restaurant that serves meat. If you are a yogi, you won’t do work that creates instability or suffering in the world. Let go of the results…and watch what happens!
  • “Be reborn every day.” Simmons went from being a drug dealer to a mega-rich businessman, yogi, author (he previously penned the New York Times best seller Do You!: 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success), and humanitarian. How did he do that? He “began moving away from [his] unconscious state and toward enlightenment.” He says it is important to “get open”…to be fluid and creative and never rigid.
  • Build bridges…with people of other races, religions, beliefs, etc…that will bring people together. Recognize that we are all connected.
  • Practice and realize the power of acceptance and love of others and what is.
  • Enjoy and be grateful for the material things, but don’t become burdened by or attached to what you have. Instead, achieve balance in life.
  • “Make a real commitment to being conscious and compassionate.”  He quotes the story of theBhagavad Gita and Arjuna’s final words to Lord Krishna: “Through your kind conversation, I’ve woken up and am conscious of who I really am.” Simmons says that even if you fall short in all the above things, if you are conscious and compassionate, you will…like Arjuna…become more awake, which is “central to all your success.”

Simmons says that, armed with the knowledge in the book, we can be like Arjuna and:

To fight not for what you can get for yourself, but what you can give to others.

To fight not for your own abundance, but for the abundance of others.

To fight not for your own security, but for the peace and safety of others.

To fight not for your own joy, but for the happiness of others.

To fight not for your own upliftment, but for the enlightenment of others.

Russell Simmons, hip-hop, fashion, and multi-business mogul, yogi, father, UN Goodwill Ambassador, vegan, and philanthropist, ends the book by saying:

When you are devoted to fighting for these things with a smile on your face and love radiating out of your heart, then all these things will be yours. You will have it all. You will be Super Rich.

How refreshing to see someone who truly is super rich in every way practice what he says. Thanks, Russell Simmons.

Unconditionally Delight Your Customers

If you’ve ever actually seen a naturally sourced spring, you know exactly how magical it is. Water simply bubbles up out of the earth; there’s no drilling and no need to extract or purify it. It’s a free gift from nature. The spring burbles along regardless of whether anyone is there to drink from it. It’s a profound metaphor for unconditional love, which is why it’s a perfect way to describe the kind of relationship you want to have with your customers.

In simpler times (and in some parts of the world, even today), civilizations only sprang up in areas where there was fresh running water. A spring was a source of life, and people wanted to crowd around that source.

If you become a source of great joy, delight, and necessity to your customers, they will want to spend as much time as possible near you. You give them something that makes them feel good, powerful, and alive. That’s a powerful gift and they will reward you with intense loyalty.

You create loyalty between yourself and your customers by giving them something that makes them feel good. You create infatuated loyalty when you unconditionally give them something beyond what they expected.

If you provide a product, make sure the product has an element that brings them some benefit they can’t get anywhere else. If you offer a service, make sure that service makes them feel nurtured and attended to in a way they don’t want to live without. By giving them a never-ending source of gratification, you create a bond with your customers.

Learn to give unconditionally and your customers will never waver from your side.

Shift Your Business Perspective

What if your business could create happiness, love, and purpose with the same agility and certainty that it creates expanding profits, new customers, and new innovations? It’s a question that isn’t often asked in business, because intangible qualities like love aren’t easily measurable (and measures are the language of business). Most people don’t believe the tangible, everyday needs of business coexist with the intangible.

Oh, but they do.

The truth is just because the current language of business does not acknowledge intangibles, doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

Your business is an embodiment of who you are and what you believe – every time you expand your business, you also expand the knowledge and empowerment of yourself. When you are fundamentally coming from a place of love and purpose, you automatically are shifting your perspective of business.

When your business blends with your own personal philosophy, decisions become easier. You are able to access support not typically considered in traditional business models. Goals are set and achieved without struggle. Your strategies are driven not just by necessity but by passion. Your focus never wanders. You walk forward with absolute certainty that you are supporting the highest good. Not only does your business become a channel for success – it becomes a channel for your expanded inner self and an expanded model of what it means to be doing business in today’s world.

Evolving Sacred Space

One of the goals of the Strategy Stream Program is to help you consciously and consistently unite the finite dimension of your business, with the infinite dimension of the divine. Our mind and ego readily access the finite; we easily forget (especially when we are running our business) our access to the infinity of the divine.

There are 24 sessions in the Strategy Stream Program. A session primarily is about exploring the session topic. Secondarily, the session is a time to pause, reflect, and access your concept of the divine. The goal is have you complete each session feeling like you have concrete steps for your business, as well as an expansive sense of the divine working with you.

You are asked to:

Consciously hold that every single time you are in a session, there is a evolution or forward progression that is occurring not only in your business, but in the sacred space of each session.

Consciously hold that if you miss a session or need to cut-short a session, the evolution or forward progression of your business is continuing to occur, if not actually speeding up. Sometimes sessions are rescheduled, but if a time cannot be coordinated within the same week as the original session, you are asked to consider it is an indication that the momentum can be maintained in sacred space.

Consider that as you consciously hold this concept of sacred space for your sessions, you are at the same time expanding and evolving the sacred space of your business and

attracting higher and higher levels of flow.

The Planning Game


Fundamentally planning is about designing the steps between a current situation and a chosen future. Specific linear results are expected from each action taken. Have you ever noticed that specific, linear, expected results are rare? Consider that this is because as soon as an action is taken, external resistance or internal doubt may arise. Resistance or doubt will alter the action’s course and often deflect it from its original trajectory.

What to do?

Clean up, to the best of your ability, any internal doubt that may stand in the way of your being aligned with your soul vision and your connection with divine source.

Pay attention to feedback from divine source and then, to the best of your ability, plan your plan.

Maintain action or change action based on correct perception of any external resistance.

A Few More Things……

Be responsible for understanding the game you are playing.

You are playing the game of business.

The goal of the game of business is to have you be prosperous.

Being prosperous, in the game of business, includes profit (even in a not-for-profit).

In order to win (reach the goal), you must understand the rules.

You can play the game with your own values, style, finesse, and integrity within the rules.

Rules in business are mainly about how to keep score.

Scoring can increase your ability to win the game.

One Last Thing……

Always remember that you are enough with or without the game.
