Fundamental changes are occurring in business practices. The “dog eat dog” competitive business model which has been accepted as “normal” is now being questioned. A new business style which is less competitive and more creative is emerging as an alternative.
The main difference between a negatively competitive business and a creative, MetaBusiness is how they handle fear. Fight or flight is at the heart of the competitive business belief system. Eat or be eaten, survival of the fittest. Dive in and swim with the sharks is the order of the day.
When a highly competitive business person feels fear their automatic reaction is to either run away from the fear or fight the fear. As a result, all kinds of fear-based practices can occur like greed, manipulation, lying, cheating, stealing, etc.
In a MetaBusiness fear is experienced but handled completely differently. A creative business person feels the fear consciously and chooses not to react automatically with fight or flight. They notice the restrictive effect fear has on their mind/body. They know that it is not wise to take action while in that contracted fearful state.
Next time you feel fearful, uptight, afraid or that things will not work out, take these three steps and see what happens.
