“Funding your emotional bank account”

Compassion and Capitalism. Do you think they go together?  We live in a complex world of love and care, greed and self-service, and it seems like compassion and capitalism are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

What if we integrated the two concepts into one called “compassionate capitalism”? What if you could strengthen and fulfill yourself emotionally while at the same time amass favor for your personal brand with abundance and wealth to boot?

The upside of having compassion as the distinguishing characteristic for your personal brand and enterprise has virtually no limits. The possibilities invite us to new levels of understanding of compassion, how to turn it into action, and capture generous returns on your investment in this undervalued asset.

Most people want to give and receive compassion, where humanity at its best is on display. We want compassion to be central in the life we live, and to inspire us to our greatness. We tend to feel elevated in our spirit when we are connected to and fulfill each other’s’ needs through our sensitivity and care.

Compassion is an act of Love!  It is to commiserate with another’s experience and it is a sympathetic concern for other peoples’ conditions.  It encompasses

  • Empathy
  • Understanding
  • Acceptance
  • Mercy
  • Grace

In his work with the Dalai Lama and in his book of the matter, our colleague and contributor, Blaine Bartlett, teaches about compassion in our personal worlds as it overlaps with your capital worlds to have life work for all that live in the world. It totally resonates with our view on building your “compassion capital” with people who know you and with your professional colleagues. Your personal and business relations flourish and grow into fulfilling adventures by applying compassion in our daily lives. 

In this webinar, you will look into compassion and capitalism from several perspectives so that everyone can relate and benefit from the key lessons and the exercise you will do at the end. Going beyond data and information you get to turn compassion into a verb and open new worlds with satisfaction and success.

The larger context is respect for, care for, and honoring our connection with humanity.  Chunking it down further, to have empathy for your fellow man and turning that feeling into an action that impacts your network is a service of the highest order. It also produces results.  With such a powerful effect it would make sense to learn how to apply this phenomenon throughout your life – in your household, your community, and your workplace.   

We delightfully and vigorously take on that challenge. In the world of “me-first”, the world needs more compassion and partnership, especially during this time in history.  It shapes our relationships.  Compassion on a planetary level contributes to our common interests and it might well be the secret to our future as a species.

Branding 

Do you know why you get the mates you have, or the contracts you get, the jobs that are offered to you, or the prosperity you enjoy?  It is because of the personal brand that you are.

I suspect that most people think that branding has nothing to do with them.  They think that branding has only to do with the marketing of large corporations.  That couldn’t be more wrong.

First of all, it is important to learn the profound difference between branding and marketing, which makes a profound difference.  They are NOT the same. You are always branding, although you may or may not be marketing. Branding is about your being, marketing is about your doing, and satisfying outcomes depend on both.

You are a brand, and your brand is you.  People respond to you and attract to you because of who you are and how you represent yourself.  Many people are not aware of how they do that and what it has to do with all relationships in their lives – especially those that have to do with intimacy, prosperity, and career advancement.

Everything in your life that has to do with human interactions and relationships depend on branding.  Some people like you and want to be with you, while other times you can’t understand why some of your peers get picked for certain opportunities that you are more qualified for but don’t get selected.

You may have great qualifications and a great message, but the music is missing or does not match. Therefore people are repelled rather than compelled.

Your story, and how it is told, is the ultimate law of attraction. Whether you are looking for a mate, or you are a potential employee, consultant, social enterprise, corporation, personal brand, or any other service provider, all must address these key questions.

It is wise to look at proven success stories that give you straight facts from proven success stories to help you reframe your brand. Because the insights you gain will help you to generate richer relationships, land your dream jobs, win more customers, build a stronger customer community, and grow your business with greater ease.

Branding consultants who are worth their salt, can tell  you what people like and dislike about brands, particularly in social interactions and social media.  With this awareness you can let go of self-defeating gimmicks that turn people off, and learn to engage, enable, and excite your relationships and customers. This will give you more traction and propulsion in the critical domains of your life.

The art of branding success helps you to move into elite company — from a “Me too”, to a “Me special”, to a “Me ONLY” brand that differentiates you and your uniqueness and how to communicate that so that others are enrolled.  Then people will sing your praises and you will gain more leverage in the marketplace, because people will tell others about. the unique value you offer and how it will impact the lives of people they care about.  It is your ticket to success.

Branding is about generating market responsiveness regarding the services you provide. If that is what you want, a great first habit to develop is to speak more softly, listen more loudly, and act more quickly on the concerns of your audience. This is an actionable tip you can apply right now for you to evoke exceptional partnership and commitment to you and your brand such that you generate extraordinary results.
