#MEExposed: Love, Fact, Hopes and Business, and how they are connected.
Have you ever met someone, and within hours of connecting with them your mind has already seen some beautiful future. You tell yourself STOP STOP STOP, but your mind races forward emotionally and totally impractically. The weird irony is that sometimes this vision comes true, but in many other instances it becomes a terrible train wreck. Should we chase emotion or fact in relationships?
It definitely had me thinking about how vigilant I am in business. How much my decisions are based on fact and not emotion. If you put on a show you print the number of tickets based on the capacity of the venue. You sing songs that cater to the audience. You price the event based on the target audience. All fact. So why in relationships do we choose not to base our decisions on fact? It’s difficult for me to be certain about a beautiful future with someone I don’t know well. How can I justify how they will treat me? How can I guarantee that what they say is true if I’ve never spent enough time with them to see some of their ugly?; Decide if I can tolerate it…And trust me, we all have some ugly.
So instead of remaining hopeful that someone you just met is going to be your lifelong princess or prince charming, maybe you should really assess the facts. Do they make time for you, whether it be on BBM, Skype, phone calls, visits? Do they treat you like if you weren’t around they would lose a piece of themselves? Do they respect and know about your life, your family? I have a theory that if someone is interested in you, they should know whether you have siblings or not, where you were born…The basic things that someone who is really interested in you should know. If they don’t know that stuff then what FACT in you are they connected to? If it’s your accolades, your fashion sense or your beauty, then you need to re-evaluate the situation.
Relationships and business are definitely two different categories of interactions, but I think the FACTS you need to make your business work, are the facts you need to ensure your relationships work. That said some relationships are very strong with apparently little nurturing, but undeniably if you dig deep and investigate, to get to that stage, significant FACT-foundation had been laid for that relationship-business to function without fear or anxiety of failure.
So today I ask you to look into your relationships and what they are based on. Why are they what they are? It’s a questions worth asking, and if by chance your businesses are run on emotion, then you need to infuse lots of fact into them, because emotions in business need to be carefully managed.
Love, fact, hopes and business…Definitely connected. The question is how? Why? Is it healthy? Look into how all of these are connecting for you.
Have you seen my new video ‘Soul Tek’? Check it out. I’m very proud of it, and almost everything in this video was based on fact def with a healthy balance of emotion :D http://youtu.be/OWZBV-0B5EA
