I received an interesting piece of information from a colleague, recently. While I don’t know the actual source for this statistic, supposedly, there is a 90% failure rate of wellness businesses within the first five years. When I first heard this, I cried and felt powerless and despairing, because as a Business and Prosperity Coach for Wellness Professionals, the challenge of helping to change this statistic feels daunting. Then, I remembered the words of my favourite metaphysical teacher, Florence Scovel Shinn, and I got inspired.
Florence said, “Nearly every big success is built upon a failure.” She proclaimed that we must form the habit of “seeing through failure into success” and not “judging by appearances.” So, for all who are in the wellness arena (or contemplating launching wellness businesses), this statistic is a blessing and an opportunity. The time to transmute failure into success and change this statistic is NOW.
I believe that the way forward is to, not only, learn how to market and sell wellness services authentically and effectively, but also to look deep within, to discover what needs to be healed mentally and emotionally, and what is yearning to be expressed. From a spiritual perspective, there is a Divine Plan for each wellness business that supports fulfillment and financial success. Opening the spiritual channel and tapping into that Divine Plan are also vital.
When these four quadrants are working cooperatively together — the physical external actions, the emotions, the thoughts/beliefs and the spiritual connection — that’s when success and expansion occur on all levels.
Underpinning this is one of the most important realizations that wellness professionals can have: business, financial abundance and humanitarian service are not mutually exclusive. Medical intuitive, author and teacher Caroline Myss said something once that really moved me. She said that as a society we need to heal this dualistic way of looking at business, money and healing services, and healers need to “develop financial clout and become an economic force in the world.”
Healing this duality is the higher purpose of my work. My mission and passion are to help shift global consciousness and create a new economic paradigm based on wellness, sufficiency, co-operation, unity, love, joy and service. I’m fulfilling my mission by helping wellness professionals, therapists and holistic practitioners attract clients and create prosperous, fulfilling businesses that serve others and the world.
