Hi, its Janet Clark founder of the freedom shift and I am here on Janet Talks Business TV today with the subject of happiness.
Now for a lot of people, they don’t necessarily associate business and happiness together, but I’m here to tell you a little story about how I came to start the freedom shift and how it all ties in with the happiness and joy that I feel in my life right now.
So it really started about three years ago as I was driving down the street one day on the highway driving, probably about seventy miles an hour, going God knows where and I just had this thought that just came so vividly into my mind, and it was “I am not happy”.
Now from are outside appearances that was ridiculous because I had a business, that business was called Integrated Communications, I’d been running that business for ten years, in fact it pretty much ran itself. It was a residual income business so there was money coming in every month and I didn’t have to do a lot to maintain the business.
But the fact of the matter was that I did not want to do anything that had to do with that business. I just was not excited about it at all and it really felt almost like drudgery. On the other hand, I also have a wonderful family, four grown sons and each of them in a nice relationship and grandchildren. I’m married, I have a nice home in a resort area at the beach on Cape Cod mass and I have another home and I just had no reason not to be happy.
But I wasn’t, and what came clear to me after some work was that I really wasn’t living on purpose. I really wasn’t in touch with my soul’s purpose. I wasn’t doing meaningful work, something that felt like what I came here to do, and I wasn’t being emotionally, mentally or intellectually stimulated in a way that was making me feel that I could get into that flow.
For those of you who have heard me talk before about flow it’s that feeling where you’re doing something and you’re so caught up in the joy that it doesn’t feel like time has any bearing on it, and it’s almost like there is no time. It’s just being in the flow.
I’m going to talk a little more about this as we go on with our series on Janet Talks Business TV because it’s part of your discovery also. If the business that you’re in is not bringing you joy then it does not make sense for you to be doing it because this life is short and you do have a purpose.
So as we go on in the next few weeks, I’ll talk to you a little bit more about my spiritual process that I’ve gone through and how I came to create a new business model, and it really has evolved over the last couple of years, and it’s still evolving which is really exciting because you’re part of it.
And as much as I want to help you to grow your business, I also appreciate so much that you are helping me to grow my business and together we will be “masterminding” as I like to call it, sharing each other’s ideas and creating a synergy that on will put us into flow, which is just really exciting.
