Don’t Sell Your Soul

The primary purpose of your business is to serve YOU!

The secondary purpose of your business is to serve others.

Far too many people sell their soul when they get into business, and there’s simply no need for it.

Before they know it…

They’re doing things they don’t enjoy.

They resent their customers.

They’re losing money.

They come to detest their business.

And in the end, they go out of business as yet another failure statistic.

Fortunately it doesn’t have to be this way.

By making this one small shift in your thinking, you can be the proud owner of a thriving and successful business.

A business that’s a natural extension of the genuine and authentic person you already are.

A business that allows you to provide unique value to the people you serve, in a way that only you can.

A business that serves YOU by giving you everything you want and desire!

I’m so excited to share this shift with you.

Dedicated to your success,

    Hi Kevin –

    Such an excellent reminder about the basic reasons for running a business. Thanks! A question for you about an extension of the idea. When it comes time to expand or extend the business, how do you keep true to your longer term goals or the person you wish to become?

  2. Hi Sue,

    I’m not sure I understand the question. As I expand my own business and reach, I always stay in complete alignment with my authentic self.

    When expanding, my goal is NOT how much money can I make, but how can I serve my ideal client in a more powerful, clear and authentic way, by being completely congruent with my core beliefs?

    By expanding with this in mind, everything else seems to take care of itself.

    Excellent video Kevin! It’s a great reminder to me to not follow shiny objects especially when they are not in my passions. I have found out just recently how it can lead to unhappiness and has caused me to spend lots of money in areas I shouldn’t have. I always find myself going back to what I initially love and wanted to do in the first place and should have just focused on that. If you ever doubt something even for a split second don’t do it. Trust me, you’ll be glad (and much happier) that you followed your heart!

    Hi Kevin,

    Quite a challenge usually, especially when it comes to issues of money. Generally money as the opium that causes unsteady minds to explode and lose direction. Hence the importance of the reminder. It requires therefore for one to remain true to the goal of remaining a hero to those ones loves without going out of line beyond ones needs, just for the sake of accumulation.

    When you enter upon the creative plane of thought you will rise above all these things and become a citizen of another kingdom. But remember that your thought must be held upon the creative plane. You are never for an instant to be betrayed into thinking that the supply is limited or into acting on the moral level of competition.

    Whenever you fall into old ways of thought, correct yourself instantly. For when you are in the competitive mind, you have lost the cooperation of the supreme mind.

    Thank you for the reminder to look back at my LIFESTYLE BUSINESS BLUEPRINT to see if I’m aligned with it. The answer is yes. I really appreciated that you said, “The primary purpose of your business is to serve YOU” because it can be so easy to lose sight of that. Thanks.

    Making Today Awesome!!

  7. Hi Jeff,

    I want to congratulate you for being so candid in an open forum like this.

    That took courage on your part, and I want to recognize you for that.

    When looking at a goal like this, the first question you must ask yourself is, “How can I provide $120,000.00 worth of value to others.

    The one and only way income is created, is by providing value to others in exchange for that income.

    I realize this is NOT the way most people think.

    But when you come from this place of taking your mind of your own needs, and begin to look at how you can truly be of service to others by providing them with incredible value… you’ll be absolutely amazed at what you’ll come up with.

    I look forward to hearing back from you after you’ve given this some consideration because you’re going to accomplish great things!

    So incredibly important that this should be the number one step in creating ANY business!! I’ve learned this the hard way and so hearing this again re-emphasizes the point–thanks!
