Collaboration is the here to stay; the days of “The Lone Ranger” are numbered and rightfully so. It is unnatural to live isolated with the old ‘survival of the fittest’ mentality and this was only a paradigm anyway.

Disregarding others is like cutting off your nose to spite your own face. There is more than one way to live life. Be forewarned however; the paradigm you create will show up as your “reality”. I can see around me people awakening to this truth.

Life is not “just the way it is” for everyone, no it is the way that you perceive it for you. Even if one is in the midst of storms their interpretation of the meaning of the storm can make or break the outcome of their experience.

“Make”, meaning will they grow constructively and learn from it or, “break” meaning will they become bitter, harsh and unforgiving? What can determine the difference is HOW you perceive it and whether you only viewed it from a “logical”, linear way that aligns with already preconceived rigid patterns of thinking or will you allow your heart, your intuition, your spirit to also have a voice?

The choice is yours. Life is not a game of chance; it is one of choice. You see, a heartless mind is no way to live…. Collaboration is not just about working together with others; it’s that yet so much more. It really begins within – igniting your own mind with heart, bringing together what I call, “The Ultimate Power Couple” which is my new name for my blog (see my About Page Link:). The rest of my site is under construction as I write this as well. It’s time to change and move forward with inspiration.

This alignment will impact positively, not only your business, but your relationships, finances and health as well. My journey from childhood to eye surgeon, to now change catalyst, has required courage, yet another manifestation of heart energy. Logic helped and played a role and is important, yet, it is time to bring in heart alongside logic.

It’s time to get down to the heart of the matter if we are to expand our business success into the 21st century. No, business as usual will not work; don’t waste your time. I’ve done the Lone Ranger in the past, it was an interesting experience – now it’s time to upgrade and evolve. Just like we need to upgrade our hard-drives and software, we need to also up level how we think and operate our brains and minds.

Collaboration is a choice that if you set the intention to understand yourself first, and then others, you can and will have much success in the years ahead. Stay tuned! What do you think about the partnership of heart and heart, logic and intuition? I’d love to hear from you.
