Watching a candle flicker this morning during my meditation, it dawned on me that a flame on a candle can keep lighting other candles without diminishing anything from itself.
It got me thinking about business.
Sharing content. Getting on discovery calls. Going on a coffee date so someone can 'pick your brain.'
The big-time marketing gurus out there tell you to be careful what you share. Leave them hungry, so they'll come back for more and then charge them your 'premium' pricing.
It's made people like me and my clients hesitant and sometimes even afraid to give away our knowledge because we have taken in the limiting beliefs that it will diminish something we have. Or that prospects will gobble it up for free and will not hire us.
But what I realized this morning is that we've also been taught, especially in the religious and spiritual arena, that giving doesn't diminish our light.
If anything, it makes us better. It makes us feel good to help someone, and it shows our true intentions, which are unselfish, loving and kind.
I share this with you because I finally understand that the knowledge and experience that we have amassed in our lifetime has been given to us to share, not squander.
Sharing helps us stay true to who we really are deep down inside. It helps us grow, allowing us to shine, enabling us to share our light and ignite others without fear of being diminished.
Given this insight, I'm wondering what you could do differently to enable you to share your light so you can ignite others?
