Now if you’re someone who has a life where spirituality doesn’t have a role, that’s fine—it’s not a pre-requisite. If it’s of no importance to you, rock forth, be wealthy, create an amazing business, live your dream and serve people.
If it is important to you, I encourage you to have both wealth and spirituality.
I meet a lot of people who say they are spiritual and if you believe in spirituality then everyone is spiritual. We all have a spirit and access to something greater.
The thing is, a lot of those same people say they are spiritual but broke. They are spiritual but can’t pay their bills. They are spiritual but are wishing, waiting and hoping for clients to arrive.
We have to marry the spiritual world—the metaphysical world—with the literal and material world. And we want to have access to both.
They should not in any way conflict with each other.
I remember having a conversation with a guy once at a free event we were running, and I was talking about the importance of developing business skills.
Here at TCI we are really good at taking on people who are passionate about making a difference and creating the life they want and combining those passions and desires with real life business skills.
His response was, “I don’t charge people because I love them.”
And I thought, ‘Woah, that is an amazing insight into his world’. The insinuation was that because I am open to people paying for coaching I don’t love my clients.
