Ready to build a new kind of sandbox?

21 May

Have you ever thought about how lonely it is at the top?

Of course, there really is no such thing as “the top” or “alone” but we live in a world that promotes being better than our competition, being tough and rising to the top. And of course there are a lot of people that “feel” alone no matter how successful they might be.

This perception of separation recurs frequently for me. It comes around again and again as I clear and uplevel this particular emotional pattern. The good news is that the process is now only a few minutes long where it used to take weeks or even months to get back to center.

And somewhere along the way I realized that connection actually felt a heck of a lot better than separation. I mean in my body as a physical sensation. In business terms (how I am showing up in the physical world) this meant that collaboration was far more fun than being at the top! So now I have very little desire for anything BUT collaboration.

Yet, not everyone is ready to play in that particular sandbox. Are you?

I would love to hear how you find people to play with in a field that seems to be based on competition? How do you show up in collaboration in a world that rewards figuring it out, being the best, and limiting success to static measures of leadership?
