Meditation = Happier Wealth

originally posted http://www.strategystream.com ~ by Ruby RenshawWater ying yang

Recently, I asked a successful finance director, who has been incorporating meditation into his business life for several years now, his own experience of the benefits of committing to a meditative practice.

Along with some expected benefits:

-Being un-rattled by issues arising when things seem to be going wrong.

-Ability to be present, to observe, not to engage in negative emotion, not because I am suppressing it – but genuinely because I do not need to go there anymore.

He also offered up the most yummy, juicy benefit:

I am happier! … AND what is a surprise – now becoming wealthier! …. Meditation energy is the type of energy that lets the stuff you no longer want go and allows in the new good stuff ….

I had to drop my old ways of doing business which worked financially, but were not based around happiness. So I had to drop some old ways of thinking – including with it ways that made money – without knowing how I was going to make a new way work financially. When you realize you want to do that, that’s a ‘Gulp’ moment! 

But when you have your own heart on your side, well that’s alignment, and things you cannot foretell start to engage, to happen and you get there.

Beautiful.

By improving your inner landscape, meditation helps you to respond to external events with more awareness and clarity, and hence, change the business and HAPPINESS results that you deliver over time.

Deliver Happiness with your Social Media

Think of your Social Media Strategy as an umbrella under the big umbrella of your Marketing Strategy. Exploring the perfect mix of Social Media avenues for your business with a eye on those that give you 1-a decent R.O.I. and R.O.E. (Return On your Energy) 2-a projection of your business vision into the world and 3-happiness — is a worthwhile endeavor.   Without this mix, you could get really, really frustrated.

Let’s focus on the happiness aspect of your Social Media Strategy. This is a good place to start because there are some happiness habits that you can establish right away.

Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, has a beautiful philosophy of interacting with social media to ensure the delivery of happiness. It contains 4 easy points and is from the standpoint that happiness flows both ways –to your audience and back to you, in a never-ending, steady rhythm:

1. Inspire and Be Inspired
Be inspiring through your updates and communications (for example, share a great quote or a link to an inspiring article); be inspired by joining other’s who are doing the same thing.

2. Connect and Be Connected
Connect yourself with other people and connect people with each other.

3. Entertain and Be Entertained
Update with communications that bring a smile (or a tear) -whether it is a personal sharing or something you found that made you laugh-out-loud.

4. Educate and Be Educated
If you have some interesting information to share –share it! If you find something interesting –share it! Establish yourself as the “go-to” on a specific topic.

The next time you share something via Social Media whether it is on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter…ask yourself…does this deliver happiness? Is it ICEE (Inspiring, Connecting, Entertaining and/or Educational)?

Most importantly….make sure YOU are having fun aka delivering and receiving happiness.
