The Inner Game of Joint Ventures
[I'm please to share this guest expert article with you from my colleague Adela Rubio…]
Joint venture strategies and tactics aren't rocket science. They're not difficult to grasp, or even implement, though they may take some elbow grease.
Navigating the inner landscape, is another story. More often what holds you back in approaching a potential JV partner is the perception that they are so much further along than you…
They are more successful.
They are well known.
They are experts!
Why would someone who has SO much together want to partner with you? There are plenty of ways to position the answer so that you feel comfortable, and justified, in approaching JV partnerships. There are even tools that you can use to muster up enough energy and confidence, to bridge the momentary gap.
The truth is that nothing is more compelling than certainty… your certainty. Certainty does not live in your intellect, it resides in your being. You could go off on a tangent and find ways to increase your sense of self worth, but you'd be walking on shaky ground. Self worth lacks the substance to sustain profound vision. It is a surface exploration devoid of the depths of your Essence.
How to Partner Authentically
Your Essence is not powered by fame, fortune, or fulfilling a legacy. Your Essence is powered by Life and awakens in creative expression, cosmic communion and cascading abundance.
Here are some recommendations for partnering with others who reflect your light:
- Reclaim Your Essence. Own your own light! As long as you are feeling 'less than' someone or something, you are in the playground of illusion and are at the mercy of misunderstandings. These show up as fear of rejection, self deprecation, and self doubt. You have intrinsic worth, just by being here. Life is intricately designed, and you are in perfect partnership with creation. You serve no one by being less than who you really are. Bring your fullness to the party!
- Relish Your Partner's Essence. Make it a practice to hone in on your partner's brilliance. Focus on what has impressed you about their work, or even how their work has impacted you. The world so often points out what's wrong, how refreshing, empowering and enlightening to reflect on what's right!
- Be Powered By Your Vision. Take the focus off you, and instead, bring it to what you are passionate to bring into being. Often the problem is that your vision isn't big enough. You should, at first, feel nervous to speak it aloud. Once your focus is powered by your vision you'll be surprised how easily you can dare to go to the edge and do things you've never done before!
Life is always in partnership. You are in partnership with your own essence, your partner and your vision. In the end, the only sure thing is YOU and the force that propels you to embody what you are here to do and be.
You are a child of an infinite Universe, here to engage and express your unbounded BEing. Embody your Essence and gift it to the world! The power of partnerships will help you reach more people. The more people that reclaim their light, the sooner we bring a new world into being and that's an extraordinary vision to partner on!
