There is a growing trend among entrepreneurs, business people, leader and corporate management in approaching a holistic approach to their busy lifestyles.
Years in the making, the aggressive climb-the-corporate-ladder professionals are finding their achievement of the summit of their driving goals and fervent determination less satisfying than they had expected.
You can have everything… the home, the family, the cars, the boat(s), luxury vacations and lifestyle, yet it leaves one wanting more… Not more in the sense of material things, but more in terms of what might be more meaningful from within.
It’s as if the definition of success is in the process of being redefined. Accumulation of wealth is still the most common measurement of success, but within the ranks of the most successful people in the world there is a yearning to find greater meaning and satisfaction in what this life’s journey has to offer.
In an effort to offer socially relevant expressions of gratitude, philanthropy became more popular among the most affluent business people. Exercising the philanthropic good deed of giving back, or helping others less fortunate, by creating not-for-profit entities in an effort to help make the world a better place.
While this has been noteworthy and has helped the world in many ways, with each entrepreneur expressing their concerns, beliefs and promoting their personal points of view, backed by their own financing… still, inside there is a longing for something more.
The shift in modern business and corporate circles is less a devil-may-care guerilla approach to dominating one’s field of influence with every ounce of effort possible, and moving more toward a personal, spiritual and planetary balanced approach to success.
This is promoting a more holistic approach to business and corporate lifestyles, demonstrated by skilled professionals seeking more personal quality of life while they pursue their passions and dreams simultaneously. They are expanding their minds, bodies and souls as they continue to build their professional careers… And the results are astounding.
Having a sense of inner wellness and feeling as though one is a part of a greater whole and embracing the we’re-all-in-this-together approach to business, instead of the us-against-them approach of business warfare is paying off – not only in the lives of the business people approaching their careers in this manner – but it is having a positive impact of the entire capitalistic environment.
Business culture is in a stage of metamorphosis, from strict micromanagement to a culture of mutual benefit and increased workplace satisfaction, and as a surprise to the old-school management – who projected certain failure for “going soft” – the levels of productivity is on the increase.
This approach is counter-intuitive to our parent’s generation that demanded selfless submission to the business. And if your selfless commitment and dedication wavered, in any way, there was someone on the rung of the ladder just beneath you, willing and able to take your place.
As professionals are embracing a heart centered approach to business practices, feeling better within, able to freely express themselves, and encouraged to seek their own personal satisfaction (with support of the corporation) both the ability and desire to better serve the (business) community increases, resulting in higher production numbers due to heightened levels of integrity, intuition and imagination.
The top entrepreneurs and leaders are seeking greater meaning, and as they do so, this care and compassion for themselves and others is spreading like a virus, infecting the entire organization in this phase of business evolution taking place before our very eyes.

How Can I Serve?
From a place of inner peace and a desire to make the world a better place, we are able to witness – what could very well be – the greatest advancement in a capitalistic society.
