If you've ever worked in an environment where the "bottom line" is ALL that really matters, then you know that it gets old and wears on the soul.
Fear and scarcity can motivate... And that may even "work" for time. More. Faster. Harder.
But fear and scarcity pretty much won't create a culture filled with creativity, community and a common desire to succeed so that everyone benefits. It won't create cultures that change the world for the good, that's for sure.
Over coffee, as I met with an entrepreneurial start-up expert who has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs and companies around the world, I asked him, "What do you see most keeping entrepreneurs from succeeding?"
Wrong idea? Lack of capital? Wrong market? Wrong strategy?
" Fear" he said. "Fear of asking for what's needed. Fear of being wrong. Fear of failure."
He went on to explain that fear causes bad decisions. It creates cultures packed with ego and back stabbing. Fear creates teams with "What can I get?" instead of "What can I give?" or "How can I serve?"
"The teams that succeed actually create awesome creative community. They're generous. They love doing what they do."
And the key to creating awesome creative community and unlocking the entrepreneurial soul ... It's what the Bible says in I John 1:18
The way to unlock the entrepreneurial soul .... intentionally REPLACING fear with love.
When love expels "What's in it for me?" everyone wins!
When you love clients, customers, users, teammates.... fear dissipates. It gets expelled. It gets repulsed. It can't fester and cause a cancer of creativity and care in a culture.
Imagine entrepreneurs marked by perfect love?
They would NOT be worried about failure.
Instead they WOULD be creative and fulfilled.
They would NOT be backstabbing and selfish.
Instead they WOULD be beneficial and serving.
The quest for the absolute best form of transformational entrepreneurship involves a spiritual journey. It's not about just working harder ... but working to free our own souls from fear and replace that with love.
Why would we settle for anything less? f you've ever worked in an environment where the "bottom line" is ALL that really matters, then you know that it gets old and wears on the soul.
