Transform your left brain into a hawk training your thoughts to partner 50/50 with your Inner Child, and the creativity of your right brain to become unstoppable in your purpose.

April 11th, 2011 1 Comment » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

Let me elaborate…

In a nutshell,  I am a Thought Master… An Authority in Thoughts. I studied the human mind for a lifetime, researched the CRUCIAL field and science of thoughts in depth in relationship with marketing and the new business mindset for the last 4 years,  24/7  and the bottom line is reflected like a mirror  in the above title.

Transform your left brain into a hawk training  your thoughts  to partner 50/50 with your Inner Child, and the creativity of your right brain to become unstoppable in your purpose.

In other words, become a Black Belt Thought Master. An Expert in harnessing your thoughts to work for you, not against you.

After 4 years of developing my own comprehensive trans formative thought training program I can finally say that the whole  vision is condensed in the above  title and the 3 following paragraphs…

 

I inspire Entrepreneurs  to train themselves to copy and paste” the model of a butterfly by breathing transformation.


 

Train themselves  to “copy and paste” the model of the Hawk Mindset to optimize their left brain, and…

 

 

partner with their Inner Child who is to hold and manage the passion and creativity of  their right brain, 50/50 in the magic middle line, where the expansion of  their Internal Visionary Team takes place.

 

I believe with all my heart in that quote of Albert Einstein that says: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”   I believe with all my heart that aligning your thinking to work for you instead of against you in this time and age is imperative.

Period.

The huge 80% failure in small businesses comes straight from the thinking frequency you are vibrating. Therefore, getting on with your thoughts is needed not today. Yesterday!

The only truth is that while you feel helpless your thoughts are creating your reality as we speak and there are a lot of thoughts in that process that simply do not belong to you, you see?  So there is no time to waste. You have 2 choices.

  1. Train your Thoughts to work for you. Kiss the pain of dissociation good bye.
  2. Or maintain the status quo.  Be the victim of Thoughts creating your reality that are not working for your benefit. …Those have to go, darling! Besides they are not even yours.

Here is to you and your success thinking, feeling  and speaking the language of the heart. And activating the magnet of your heart.

With a hawk as your  left hand and your Inner Child as your right hand ready to unite and partner supporting  your Internal Visionary Team for success in your business. Associating the Dissociated Inside Out.

                 Here are  some more details about the BIG WHY’S.

How an actor and an Entrepreneur meet similar challenges to connect with their audience.

January 3rd, 2011 2 Comments » Filed under Sales

When I used to  coach  Unlock the Game Members, I loved to use the theater example with Hamlet and his “To be or not to be” so appropriate to the human soul. You don’t become Hamlet overnight. You prepare to become Hamlet. It is not the same to recite Hamlet as it is to “Become Hamlet”

If you are an actor,  most likely it is your purpose,  you love what you do, and you want to add your own magic to the character,  you have to find your way to undoubtedly  “become  Hamlet”, because otherwise, you will never make it to Opening Night.

The deeper his  soul blends with Hamlet’s soul in the process, the better job he is  going to do,  at interpreting the character in its own brilliance, and the more all audiences will be enchanted by him and his craft. Now, what is the science behind “Becoming Hamlet”, or being a master actor. The same science behind mastering the Art of the Entrepreneurial Mindset and being a master Entrepreneur.

It is hard to believe when you think about it. But one of the main elements to accomplish  success  in acting,  is repetition.   Rehearsal, right?   Inspiration needs Perspiration  at once and in unison with her. As a matter of fact we learn through repetition and unlearn through repetition. Repetition is key.

You get that concept,  right? Now, bear with me here. Believe it or not, his is the  same process you go through to become an Entrepreneur who actually masters the Art of the Entrepreneurial Mindset.  You prepare yourself  like an actor for Opening Night for your Audience. When all your thinking,  feeling and acting are  going to be aligned to become the Mindset that will manifest the Entrepreneur in its entire  potential.

How do you prepare ? You prepare by studying the character in depth, reflecting and researching on his or her personality, and life experience. Then, you start the repetition. Rehearsal. Until you master it. The same way an Entrepreneur prepares to meet his or her audience, by reflecting and researching their prospect’s thinking and  needs, and crafting the language to communicate the solution, in a process of repetition.

Start up Entrepreneur’s Live Thoughts Out Loud

October 23rd, 2010 17 Comments » Filed under Inner Child Quote

THE INNER CHILD ..

I was born on March 9th, of the year 1949 in Santiago, Chile. The city of the valleys  surrounded by mountains. In the winter, those mountains were covered with snow. When the sun came out of his hiding place behind the clouds, and lit the snow on its thick  coat on the mountains, against the clear blue sky they just  reflected the immaculate shine of their whiteness on us, the inhabitants of the city, as if they were reminding us to celebrate the powerful star in the center of our universe.

Exacerbating its brightness to the point that your eyes would almost get blinded with such clarity. As if they wanted to remind us of our own brightness and immaculate whiteness.

Bringing the message of the heart from the Condor from the South.

That is perhaps one of the things I miss the most about Santiago. The joy of the snowy mountains on a winter sunny day. Every time I go visit, I secretly hope the next day will be sunny and bring that memory and magnificently comforting  feeling of my childhood. I can’t stop admiring them and talking about their majesty. My nieces laugh at me. They are used to them. They never left them for good. They see them with different eyes.

My early childhood went by,  surrounded by flowers, butterflies, Swiss cotton, velvet, and organza, music, ballet, Spanish dance, and tango, books, buttons, Nannies who brought  great stories from the South, Hungarian Gypsies trying to read your hand for a couple of coins, and a black cat named Nino.

Festive gatherings with friends and the large basque clan carrying my father’s ancestors, my two little brothers, parents who called me the little golden girl and meant it, godparents who taught me how to imagine  enchanted faraway cities from Paris to the Berlin before the 1st world war, passing by London and Rome,  Kyoto and Delhi. The sharing of their  foreign traveling experience.

You have to understand, Chile’s geographic location  is so far away, that makes  people living in the valley surrounded by mountains dream of ancient places afar, like European and Asian cities.

Now, when I look back, I see clearly why I ended focusing in the Inner Child as in starting a movement by divulging the imperative need to take action to re-parent it, for all of us. It was Alice Miller who scientifically confirmed what I believed with all my heart. In a phrase,  “violence is not genetic”.

I was privileged to have a good life foundation for the first 9 years of my life. I think I lost the innocence when I was 7.  That is when everything started falling apart.

By then, the entitlement of being and feeling the center of that universe was already imprinted in my soul.  I still had my full emotional integrity. That is what helped keep my Inner Child pure, creative, innocent, using out of the box and critical thinking no matter how much resistance I encountered in the outside world.  No matter how much the rejection to innovation that used to feel so personal hurt. No matter how much I felt like I was coming from another planet. No matter how her soul was broken in a thousand pieces.

Critical thinking was very important for my parents.

They were always expressing and verbalizing their passion for Philosophy, History,  Art and Metaphysics,  the eternal question of “why are we here”, was often asked and thoughtfully attempted to be answered in deep and satisfying conversations.  They incorporated reading very early in my childhood.

I attended a private German School for girls subsidized by the German government. Even though the happenings were in the middle of the 20th Century, it was a very progressive school. For those nuns it  was about educating thinking women who stand out of the pack. They had a very ambitious and expansive curriculum.

My parents’ traumatic divorce at 9 caught me with an armor of love that helped deal with the bruises and blood shed of separation and competition. An out of the ordinary  foundation of unity laughter and love. I guess at some level I could hear my Inner Child’s voice,  Grace, almost always, no matter how much I needed to bury her in pain.

How was it possible that all of that world I lived in was suddenly broken for the rest of my life, and I had to learn to accept living with it. What a cheat!!! . How one does throw such a quality of life down the drain. It was hard to understand. Not only for me, for the entire family. Some people speculate that it was too perfect, and they still tell the story in disbelief.

After 9,  it always felt like the behaviors of the adults were too conditioned to things they didn’t even know they carried inside from their parents. I could feel the wounded Inner Child very early on, starting with my parents. Perhaps because mine was always acknowledged prior to the separation, I  refused to at least consciously turn my back to her.  Unconsciously her emotional integrity was broken. Even though she was even though she was not always acknowledged,  her fire was present all of the time.

That is one thing I am grateful for my parents. I don’t think I could have made it the same way without that dreamy contented full foundation of the first years. I was always extremely empathetic and conscious of people’ Inner Child pain.  Soon,  a natural coach developed in me.  She was the person everybody came to when they had a problem. My openness, authenticity and passion for the truth made people trust me in a very easy way.

So, by the time I started Soul Hangout, all my friends were saying “It is about time”

December 19th 2010.

When the cards were laid in 2007, and I counted on all of my time,  24/7 to think about my tribe business model and its contribution to sustainability, I asked myself the question. What is the theme closest to your heart what is the theme closest to your experience what is the one that will make the most impact. What is the story you want to tell every day with all your heart for the next 2 years, or 10 years.

The truth is, I have lived such a diverse life that gave me the opportunity to master so many different crafts  in the self improvement industry, that it was difficult to choose. It required some thinking. Self Improvement is one of the leading industries and the most important one for this time and age. We need to train our thoughts to re invent the world…because it is a new world.  It requires a new language coming from new thinking.

So, again, what is the thing in your life repertoir that will ignite your passion to get up in the morning every day with a renewed expanded energy, the thing that you see as your purpose and is bigger than you. Nothing less of that or short of that is worth living. Not worth living. Very simple.

Don’t you want to say that you are done living a depending, useless, and without purpose life?  For me it was like that. It is not worth one more minute working for some corporation with the only purpose of making a living. Not worth it one more minute, totally worth to explore no matter what happens and how many bumps on the road I encounter. Bigger than me. Way bigger. It scares some people. But that is another story.

So, my dear friend, here are the 4 questions again.

What is the thing you will pick to be the icon of your life purpose? What is the closest to your heart, what is the closest to your experience, what is the one that will create more impact and most of all which one is the one that will make you jump out of bed in the morning riding the wave of  your full potential and passion to create?

…Passion to create and purpose are one of those things like being born and dying. You have your own reasons, it is your journey.   Somehow you do it alone, and invite people to celebrate, cooperate and share with once it is born. You need support with that process.

You need the support that understands there is no conditioning in that support. Instead, complete respect for your vision. The respect you have for your vision.  The respect that a friend of Thomas Edison would have showed when he witnessed the 5,000 time of trial of  the fluorescent bulb, and patiently would be willing to extend the support  5,000 more times if it was necessary. That kind of support. Any other support, is detrimental. So if you encounter it, run away from it. It interferes.

Here is an article I wrote about Thomas Edison and his 10,000 tries.

http://www.soulhangout.net/what-would-you-have-said-if-your-were-thomas-edisons-friend-at-the-5000-try/

December 26th 2010.

Some people have asked me to blog more often.  While I am creating service products, actual info products and books, and using most of my time in sales letters and other content marketing materials, I want to let you all know that I will be doing it more  often  by the beginning of the next year. Once the systems are in place and working.

Thanks for all your great comments and encouragement. Some people are interested in expanding the conversation of the Inner Child as in charge of the visionary team. It will come very soon.

Thanks so much to Soul Hangout followers and members. Have a happy holiday and a new mindfully coherent co-creative year in 2011.

Tuesday 20th of April 2011.

It has been 4 years and 3 months since I started to work full time on my life purpose. That is the time it took to research and co-create in coherence “The Hawk Mindset” . The only trans formative Thought Masters training for Entrepreneurs to ignite their passion to contribute and full creativity.

It was like having thousands of keynotes in my head that I was to use to create my own melody. The melody of my unique experience expanded in marketing words that would come from the bottom of my soul from the writer and the coach inside . At times it was hard to do. They seemed too many keynotes…

No way they all belong to only one program… Well, I was wrong…every piece I have written, every conversation I have had, every quote I have thought of, every article came form the wholeness of what now is the The Hawk Mindset. Everything fits in one comprehensive program. I am the first one surprised.

It is something like walking with the burning desire with its perception of the big picture and the blind faith sustaining all my doubts emerging from the doubts from the small picture.

What is fascinating is that today I am thrilled to announce that each single key note had a fundamental place in the finished product. Each single letter enhances the tone to the next in the wholeness of my newly found sequenced language. Launching very soon. Thanks to all for the great support

Fear, Entrepreneurship and Thoughts.

October 21st, 2010 2 Comments » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

fight

I am here watching Chilean TV,  I am fascinated with the miners crusade. At the same time, I am working  in the computer figuring out how to engage you guys at a deeper level…and facing the fear involved in the process of building trust, invading the lack of knowledge,  the unknown territory.

Definitely the antidote for fear is knowledge…information.

Last week Neal Worthington and I spoke about “Fear” in our blogtalk radio program. “Passing the Torch of Sustainability to Millennials” . We chew on how our self belief is buried in so many layers of mind thinking and speaking, instead of heart thinking and speaking. How hard it is to awake the cells in our bodies that don’t believe in ourselves and let them sing the keynote of our existence in somewhere in the song of creation.

How building trust is a step at the time process. Taking carefully and mindfully layer by layer that is interfering with the ONENESS of all things away. Like pealing an onion, crying in the process. Crying for the pain of the loss and the joy of the gain.

How this process has a sequence, like every process in nature that cannot be rushed. A pear is ripe when it is ripe, and a child will walks when it walks.

How the face of fear visited me every step of the process, and how I had to confront it and start the conversation.  How more and more, makes sense that the fear of the new is overcome by repetition. Rehearsal, study and ultimately knowledge. like learning to ride a bicycle. Once you learn it, you master it for life.

How feeling the fear out loud,  is such a liberating experience, it creates coherence and resonance. Because we are not the only ones who are afraid. We all are afraid. Afraid of the illusion of not knowing, or making mistakes. Or the illusion that the result is the only important thing, neglecting the richness of the process.  See how crazy it is? How are you going to learn without trial and error. Why would mistakes then would be such a sacred cow. Pure nonsense. I tell you.

When you are riding your passion and you are doing that thing called your purpose, they both shine through the fear of the new. Time after time, trial after error, until you become a master of the craft. Then the illusion of fear will be only a memory in the past.

Neal asked me to please listen to the program  last week. The truth is I was so afraid that couldn’t listen to the previous one. I did. And yes, you can tell I am afraid here. However, the message gets across in spite of the limited vocabulary produced by the tension of the new.

Here is the link. Let me know what you think.

Listen to internet radio with Soul Hang Out on Blog Talk Radio

An Entrepreneur has to start by working with fear rather than allowing fear to take over. That can only be overcome by understanding that it is only normal to be afraid and all you have to do is look at fear in the eye, confront it and conquer it. Through repetition, the same way it was inserted in your mind when you lost your innocence as a child. Repetitively.

I haven’t been writing too much on the blog lately…I have been very busy with the marketing,  giving the last touch ups to my offer. Also, working on exciting projects with some facebook friends. Melissa Allison and Ani Kaspar.

After my lifetime research of the human mind and behaviors, as many of you know, I decided to focus in the Entrepreneur Mindset. Simply because small businesses fail at a rate of 8O% within the first 5 years.

I believe with all my heart that to turn that figure around we need to start aligning our thoughts and start THINKING like Entrepreneurs. There is no other way. When you align your thoughts, your brain takes about 30 days to acquire the repetitive message,  shifting the thinking and modifying the behaviors.

…And “Fear” is the first thought/feeling  you have to work with. To succeed in business you have to be able to use the fear to your advantage. Not against you. By accepting it first.

It is as choice, and a fundamental one if you want to succeed in business.

At the same time I have been thinking that it makes sense to start a diary on Soul Hangout, about my story as an Entrepreneur.  How everything started.  What were the thoughts behind the story. What are now the thoughts behind the story. “Living in the Present is History in the Making”.

So… stay tuned to hear about how it all began with my own the Inner Child,  meet Grace.  How it all began on January 27 2007.  It will be in chapters. That way you will not have to read too long.  That way you wand I will look forward to the next day.  To the  ongoing Entrepreneur thinking like an Entrepreneur story.

And don’t forget “Fear” is the first illusion you need to  eradicate from your thinking if you want to be a successful Entrepreneur.

Next week we will talk about “Judgment” Another thought to align to succeed as an Entrepreneur.

If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.

~Kahlil Gibran~

This seems to me the message that millennials are giving us. You see? They are right on the “money” If you cannot work with love you leave your work, and seriously find what you love and make a living of it. Your contribution is needed. The way to find that flame, your passion, it is imperative to connect with your Inner Child he/she will whisper in your ear exactly what you need to know~Turning your unsatisfied Inner Child into a satisfied source of knowledge and creativity.

If a superior give any order to one who is under him which is against that man’s conscience, although he do not obey it yet he shall not be dismissed.

~Francis of Assisi~

Not either if you are a helpless child. You owe it to yourself to reclaim your integrity. Giving birth to your Inner Child is the way to reconnect with the wholeness of who you really are.

My parent’s divorce and hard times at school, all those things combined to mold me, to make me grow up quicker. And it gave me the drive to pursue my dreams that I wouldn’t necessarily have had otherwise.

~Christina Aguilera ~

This is so wise. Our circumstance as Christina says, mold us for better or worse. But what we are entitled to, is to following our dream. So, my friend, What is your talent? What is your dream? How are you going to start molding it today. With the help of your Inner Child, who holds the secrets of your creativity, and will help you remember your purpose, to voice it to the world. Out loud. The truth? The world is waiting for you.

It seems Millennials are adding its real value to their use of their time

August 4th, 2010 4 Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

soulhangout

I believe  Millennials  are conveying to us all,  especially Boomers a very clear and vital message… Seems to me, they are feeling and speaking out loud their vision with regard their use of their time as adults. If you ask me, that is serious business. They realize the most sacred wealth they have is their time. They, consequently are evaluating very carefully how they invest their time as adults. Very responsible thinking so far, right?

Looks like they value their time and freedom more than any other generation. Definitely more than the Boomers. Looks like they are choosing to give more  value to time, than stuff, for a change. Looks like they are not willing to compromise 1 secondd of their wealth of time to an unworthy cause.

Looks like they are willing to plant the seeds of meaning and presence into their use of their time.

Looks like they are actively choosing to do this in a collective way.

Stop for a minute and think about it. Meaning, attached to the use of your time. What a concept, hah? !…When was the last time you attached meaning to the use of all of your time. Not only a few hours on the weekend spared minutes here and there between chores…How refreshing.

The question is “What is meaningful for Millennials”? Turns out what is meaningful for Millennials is the same values on which the new economy, the new marketing and the new sales paradigm is based.  What is that?

Relationships, relationships, relationships. Interesting.

That includes friends, family and parenthood.

Looks like a big house is not a priority on the list for Millennials as it was for us. They lived for years in that empty  either big or small house, accompanied by the TV screen, their video games,  taking refuge in their peers company.

Remember? Perhaps you forgot. I didn’t. Nobody ever mentioned this element in all the studies about Millennials I have seen in the Internet.

I remember the look in their eyes when they finally got to become teenagers. It was screaming: “Who do you think you are” or “What planet did you come from”.  I can only imagine what was going through their minds while we mortgaged, polluted the earth and were on the way, still are to destroy the world.

After all, ultimately, what is it we humans really have or possess in life. We are born naked and we leave naked, no matter how much they dress your body up to show you to the world for the last time in the day of your view.

In between your birth and your death, the only wealth you and I really possess is our time, and the only purpose we really have is  in the choice of what we do with it. Simple as that. I don’t know bout you, but it sure makes sense to me.

People say Millennials are the “entitlement trophy kids”

How easy we forget when we were not present.  How easy we forget when we forget to acknowledge. How easy we forget how we felt. What we felt and  Why we felt it. That is what I call convenient amnesia.

People forgot that while it is true Millennials  got a lot of stuff, and a lot of praise, and a lot of technology, their sense of entitlement comes from something bigger than them.  A very good thing, actually to celebrate, bigger than us also, for that matter. It comes from their own honored right brain/left brain in partnership experience. It comes from:

The authority of their Soul.

People forget that while they achieved the golden “Trophies”, absorbed the praise, scored a goal in the soccer field, and listened to the “I love yous” on the way to work, they were watching us. They were looking into our eyes,  and believe it or not, the brightness of the golden metal of the trophy, frankly,   didn’t impress them.  It didn’t fool them like it had fooled us either. Because what they didn’t get was the entitlement, yes, entitlement of the time they so much longed and craved from their parents. Their parents who were too busy giving all  the wealth of their time away to the corporation they worked for. For what? For a bunch of stuff, the chimera that didn’t bring any happiness in the end.

Because we all know the story of the Corporate workaholic CEO of the 80’s. He is today,  in 2010 in the aftermath of his busy life he complaining and regretting out loud that he ended up alone with his dog. Why? Because his kids ended up becoming  strangers and he simply didn’t have the time to develop a relationship with them. While this is extreme, we all sinned  a little bit and a lot of that. Where there are no watered seeds there is no plant to grow.

People forgot to ask Millennials about how they felt during those teenage years watching the world we, the previous generations were leaving  behind. Trying to figure out the mess we were creating in that very moment. People forget that giving a corporation 50 hours a week or more of your physical time, plus who knows how much more of your thinking time, doesn’t leave much room for spending time with your children,  we both know there are so many hours in a day. You used the best of them already, doing something pretty irrelevant to your soul and your child

And people forgot that our children need us and were entitled to our time and attention because in the end, love is not  lip service. It is attention. Presence. That is what love really is. These are the formation years of their lives. The seven first years of a child he/she is entitled to the 100% amount of attention that makes them believe they are the center of the universe.  Because they are at that moment. They are entitled to be the center of the universe at 4. They are our future. There was a philosopher who said give me a child for the first 7 years of his/her life and then you do whatever you want with them. It is silent the message we are leaving them with our actions the one that hurts the most.

Attention and presence. Not absence filled with empty words in an empty house is what every child in the world needs, the way you need water to survive. For the first seven years. That is where we were mistaken. We thought there was not going to be a price to pay for that. The truth is, if you don’t satisfy that need in childhood,  you end up with a whole generation that never grew out of it. An entire generation pushing to be the center of the universe in adulthood. Behaving like children. That is what Millennials see so clearly us doing. They don’t want to repeat the monumental mistakes we are repeating because is clear to them we are going to destroy the world if we keep doing it. We all know that this world is not sustainable the way it is any more.

They are not having a tantrum or being  spoiled brats. They are making a conscious choice about the quality of life they envision. They want to make sure we don’t continue doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

I am so grateful to them for championing the meaningful use of time. It is a very worthy cause. People also forget that if we all  did that,  Entrepreneurship based in a passion to contribute will grow, and we will create an actual sustainable and productive world. It is Very promising. You cannot create wealth without the value of the contribution. It is not sustainable long term.

How quickly we forget we created a casino and speculating based economy in front of their eyes.

The irony is that we the Boomers and Xers are paying  thousands of dollars to  gurus out there,  to acquire a mindset that will value yourself, your authenticity, and your time as the source of your wealth  because from there will come your passion to contribute. Telling us the way we choose to use our time will determine who we are.

I ask: Isn’t that what Millennials  are  actually proposing with their vision?  Interesting that millennials’ thinking and behaviors match exactly the model of the Entrepreneurial mindset. In the end, in order to attain  the real satisfaction in life for a job well done, happiness and wealth. There is no secret. It is about your passion and your time. Put the two together and watch what grows from there.

It’s interesting that most of Millennials values match perfectly with the new paradigm, flourishing together in this  era of cooperative and community oriented Entrepreneurship. A recipe for success for the entire planet.

It’s interesting that Millennials’ behavior show more self respect than we have ever imagine acquiring ourselves in a lifetime. We learn from other people’s modeling. I say we pay attention to Millennials to learn from their unprecedented modeling tone. They believe in their vision. Their life is at stake. They value their life. They are frugal, and their priorities are in the relationship.

They have another unprecedented trait. They completely understand that errors are part of the process of learning. They don’t carry the drama of the mea culpa we chose to buy in a large part, carrying it from our parents’ generation. If not in its same intensity, still pretty acute in our generation. Another very important element for success. Our automatic guilt in view of  our errors made a major blockage in the development of our knowledge, if not detained it completely in so many cases.

It actually shows very clearly where your priorities are. Don’t you think? Are your priorities the stuff?  Is your priority to feel you are contributing your passion to the world or you just want to continue to exchange the wealth of your time for a paycheck.

Isn’t a  youth willing to  change the paradigm to self respect, honesty, integrity and transparency  a gift?

I don’t understand why we can analyze the debacle of the economy and everything else that needs desperate change in the world, have it very clear, and when it comes to Millennials demanding some pretty basic and common sense stuff, to change the paradigm, fully sustainable for the future, all of the sudden seems we are living in a perfect world and “how dare they challenge it”.  It almost feels like we still perceive them as children and we are not ready to acknowledge them as adult thinking entities.

They are a century ahead of us. We should start paying attention.

This is the real question. I believe all Millennials need is a little guidance to figure out what their individual purpose is, they already have one voice in the collective consciousness and it is a very beautiful crystalline voice of co-creative coherence, community collaboration, critical thinking,  big picture thinking. The exact recipe for progress and innovation.

So, next time you think Millennials have a sense of entitlement, just applaud it and work with it. Exploring their vision of the world could be the most fascinating adventure you have ever imagined to embark on.

They are wired differently than we do. Their right brain is working together with their left brain. That is why they don’t understand our obsolete model of competition and separation. There is no separation inside their heads, except for some of the vestiges of our thinking and our parents’ thinking we planted in their heads.

And we all are responsible to pass the torch of SUSTAINABILITY to Millennials. They understand sustainability far better than we did.  Otherwise we would have done something to enhance it.  Obviously we still don’t understand fully, otherwise we would be embracing Millennials and supporting them in their historical musical keynote to advance  in the symphony of creation.
