You are already being asked to be more environmentally responsible. It’s become mainstay. What you will hear more and more in the not too distant future is a call to be spiritually responsible. This will mean being spiritually responsible in your both work and personal life. Not spiritual in the sense of being religious but rather spiritual in the sense of increasing your level of meaningful contribution. Spiritual in the sense of Self-defining your own success in meaningful contribution.
Our work and our personal growth will evolve faster as leaders give focus to the full development of people who follow them. As a personal leader – when you engage in full leadership development – awareness of the interconnectedness of everything is a by product. (A very spiritual perspective)
More and more – you will see people talking about finding a purpose. Being a aware of your purpose in relation to the whole is a spiritual pursuit. One of the main reasons for this is that – with a clear and compelling purpose – you light up an internal motivation and inspiration that could drive the biggest engine. Organizations want this from you, your business will demand it, and your family wants this kind of vitality and presence from you as well.
When you begin to include more and more holistic appreciative approaches to how you lead yourself – and others – you are inspired and people around you are inspired and then called forth to also give in more meaningful ways.
The first step in becoming more spiritually responsible it to get clear on your purpose and purposefulness. The first step in becoming more clear on your purpose is to create a quiet channel from you to from the ideas, information, inner guidance, awareness that is within you and around you – so that you can begin to sort through what you have been called to contribute in your lifetime. (or beyond in legacy)
Not so long ago, this luxury of spending time to discover your purpose was reserved for just a select few. In the not too distant future, this call to be clear on your purpose will become as part of our lives as the call to be environmentally responsible.
