The Need to Survive; A Death Knell For Organizations

Changing the driving force upon which business decisions are based is crucial in order to not only restore ethics in business but to truly improve the lives of those whom they were meant to benefit: executives, employees and consumers. After all, weren't business activities meant to improve the state of existence of human beings on this planet?

So what is this driving force that I am referring to? Well its the "fear of not surviving". You thought I was going to say something like "the profit motive" didn't you? Well the latter tends to derive from the former. Hence I would prefer to look at the deeper issue.

Is anyone surprized that the current state of business decisions and activities is ruled by this emotional factor? If you are an executive and look deeply within yourself I think that you will likely recognize it operating and living within yourself and also the CEO's of many major corporations.

What impact does having such a force inside one's self likely to have on that individual? Well if its powerul enough, and it can be quite powerful, as you can determine for yourself by recalling the last time you felt its effects operating, it can literally cause you to entertain decisions that could potentially undermine your self esteem, your integrity and the integrity of your organization.

For instance, when needing to survive at all costs becomes the main agenda then one's health, one's compassion for others and one's personal and relational needs become distant and unimportant matters in one's mind. So when this happens, what happens to you?

Well just think about it. Where are you without your health, without your family and frends, without the very thing that makes you a human being "the experience of the love in your heart"? Well you are essentially dead! Yes, even if you are still actually walking around you most likely feel, if you have the courage to feel what you feel, quite empty inside. That emptiness is a sign that "you are not present" to any great extent inside that body of yours. That's what empty means!

So if you follow me so far, this fear of not surviving is paradoxically killing you, isn't it? Additionally, if you wish to recognize it, it's also making everything you are trying to accomplish rather meaningless because if you aren't present then how are you possibly going to benefit from any outcome of your decisions? Well you're not!

So how does one get out of this trap? Well it's about re-establishing the courage to live and work from the deep core values that make you who you are, a human being. If you are having trouble remembering what these are you may wish to visit the web site link below in my bio.
