|Put a little Zen in your business attitude|

Thich Nhat Hanh is not a household name to most
but this master Zen Buddhist has a lesson to teach
you and your attitude toward whatever you are doing
I like to read, I like to read alot and I am not afraid
to get out of my box and read something a little different.
Im not a buddhist and I am certainly not a monk but the
teachings are sometimes awe inspiring and effective ways
to apply transforming self awareness to our every day lives.
Thich Nhat Hanh wrote this lesson on Empathy....
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well,
you dont blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it
is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, more water, or
less sun. Never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems
we often turn to blaming people or things. If we know how
to take care of problems, eventually you will grow the lettuce.
Blaming has no positive effect, nor does trying to persuade
someone using reason or argument. No blame, no reasoning,
no argument. Just understanding. If you understand where the
problem is you can own it, grow from it, love it and the situation
Apply that lesson on lettuce to what you are doing online.
Stop playing the blame game. Start figuring out why your lettuce
will not grow. Is it a traffic problem ? Is it a design or programming
issue ? Is it an empty funnel problem ? Are you spending more time
making excuses for why you are not succeeding ? What can you
do to fix it......
There are mountains of information products, tools, and services
to help and guide you but they are all worthless unless you decide
what your business needs. Stop blaming the world around you
and start feeding it with positive action.
Since you are here on my blog take a look around....
over there in the lower right hand side there is a sub category
of some recommended tools and services that help me grow
my lettuce, they are all things that helped me understand
where my problems were and once i harnessed that I started
getting better results....and the results keep coming
Food for thought
