The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

 

AwokenBoss was born from an absolute LOVE for business and a passion for progress.

There is a fine line between mindset and spirituality, in fact most would say that they are deeply entwined. Having owned two other business for some time and had been shown the world of self help and personal development by a Global Network Marketing company, and was hooked.  Whilst I quickly discovered that Network Marketing wasn’t aligned with my creative vision, I could see the amazing awe-inspiring impact it was having on people’s lives.

The paradigm of “positive thinking” can be bizarrely addictive and yet somehow destructive at the same time.  I spent so much time trying to be happy, without understanding what was going on underneath the surface, it was like putting a plaster on a volcano.  And, yes, I erupted!

In the true fighting spirit, I hastily picked myself back up, dusted off the ash and set about doing things a little differently.  This question of “Who am I?” lingered over me and consumed my thoughts.  I quickly turned to meditation as a source of respite from the bewilderment.  Little did I realise that this not only offered the recuperation I needed but also the answers to my questions.

I started to unearth parts of myself which had been hidden, I unpicked my memories and found myself deep inside a treasure trove, dusting off my jewels, observing the damage and celebrating the forgotten triumphs.  This process, whilst ugly and often painful, was like someone had reignited the flame inside of me. It grew, I grew and my ability to love and BE LOVED grew too.

You may be wondering how this has any baring on my business, or yours for that matter!  It does. And if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of realising it – you will, one day, when the time is right for you.  I like to call it “awakening”.  I am a scientist through and through, so call it psychology, call it spirituality, call it voodoo if you like… But having the understanding and peace to be able to comprehend and therefore control the deepest and darkest corners of your mind – this yields great power.

I have ALWAYS achieved well in life, ALWAYS.  But I was far from achieving my full potential.  I was held back by my subconscious mind and hiding from my truth.

Consciousness or enlightenment or connection or whatever you identify with this process, I believe that this is the single most empowering gift we can give to anyone whom we can.

Aside from writing, teaching and coaching, I wanted to share a space with other business owners where we can celebrate their stories and share their professional products and services.  And so… let the journey begin for AwokenBoss.com
