Importance of Spirituality
When defining spirituality, theorists equalize it with some energy that is floating around. Regardless of the word used to describe this energy, usually, it shows like a power that is outside of us, anything that we believe has higher intelligence. It reflects the experience of seeking our best version while pushing ourselves to do things better and practice more to accomplish our targets. Spirituality explains why even if you are wealthy, you can still lack joy, peace, or happiness. Reaching life’s goals does not necessarily mean that you will be satisfied.
Defining Your Destination
People often have biased thinking when it comes to the destination. That is why they have a vague idea of how they will feel once they reach a certain point. Many disappointments might occur since they did not formulate their destination so that they achieve higher values. Hence, ego standpoint comes, and a person can experience edging good out. Only when you accept your ego in favor of ‘calling good’ it can be achievable. All the questions regarding the business or your personal decisions must reflect ‘calling good’ in and sharing prosperity.
Focus Outside of Yourself
The spillover effect has been seen when it comes to sharing. That is why theorists introduce a leadership style called servant leadership. When you tend to share more with the people, they often give you back in many different ways. Prosperity is more than just earning money. Usually, it means giving, experiencing happiness, goodness, and joy. Instead of focusing on achieving your business targets, you should change the way of thinking and come with solutions for prospect’s problems as well as providing them with the best advice and serving them so that you create value.
Spiritual Intelligence in the Company
Nobody can have control over what is happening around them, but yet, the thing you can control is how you show up in the eyes of your clients and how you interact with them. Shifting of companies’ mindset can be the turning point when it comes to achieving better results. Hence, answering questions like how your company can help the world or what it can do for society is of great importance. Thus, you will not just perform transactions but learn and build trust relationships within and outside of the company.
