A “Beginner’s Mind”

There is a Zen concept called 'Beginner's Mind' which encourages us to periodically clear our minds of all we know to be the truth so that there is room for additional truths to be accessed and explored. But too often, I see my clients doing the same things in the same way and wondering why they don't achieve the results they want.

As a species, we are living longer than ever before and it's a good thing because information is now coming at us faster than we can possibly absorb it in our old life span.

So it seems we need to have beginner's mind every day, whether we want to or not. If you don't have the opportunity to get away from your business to be inspired and refreshed, why not take a mental mini retreat and allow your mind to be open to some new truths.

Some ways to get a "Beginner's Mind"
• Say "I don't know," in regard to some aspect of running your business.
• Declare yourself open to exploring new avenues and new ways of operating.
• Give yourself time to allow yourself to be inspired. Go for a walk, get a massage, walk the dog.

You don't have to have all the answers. Ask yourself: "Where could I go for the information I need?"

My guess is that by now, you are ready to be inspired and with that mindset, amazing changes can happen. Your mind is now fertile ground for a new truth that will bring you to some greater way of being and doing than you had imagined before.
