What moves us forward? What brings us fulfillment in life? These are some of the essential questions that every leader asks themselves at least once: “What is my role here?” When power and ego are the drive behind these questions, there are consequences for those around them. Leadership based on asserting power through fear and domination rarely motivates others and can be detrimental for the growth of the company. Self-motivation and motivation of others should be built from a positive foundation as opposed to a self-protective one.
MyVincha can help business people develop their urge for self-actualization. Meditation is very useful in directing people to turn their minds inward to find universal, inborn, and spontaneous inclinations towards development and expression of their potential. The development of self-actualization as a basis of motivation, so-called meta motivation, usually appears when our base needs: physiological (hunger, thirst, shelter) and social (love, belonging, respect) are satisfied, but it is not the only way to nurture self actualization;it can be developed simultaneously with other base needs.
Along with helping individuals form this basis for self-motivation, MyVincha focuses on teaching business people to be inspired by what they have already achieved. The intention is to find a balance between needs that are satisfied by “external values” (material) and “inner” ones – being satisfied with oneself as a being. External satisfaction can sometimes become an instrument of stimulation of contentment. However, being motivated by inner values is a treasure much bigger than any other expressed by a bank account. Practicing meditation will help leaders expand their view of success and mission, to include seeing inner qualities as a source of wealth.
Inner motivation creates a surge of positive energy and adrenaline felt from within and reflected outside. The experience of being able to tap into a source of motivation from within is empowering in a healthy way and a step towards self actualization. Those who regularly meditation will be more able to express their potential, and will see the benefits of transforming their ego into a healthy ego that is not based on fears, but on self-compassion.
