Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve been hearing concerns about the year 2012-the end of the Mayan Calendar. Some believe it will be the end of the world–the armegedden, spaceships coming to take us or the take over by the illuminati….
2012 is now upon us and I for one, can feel a big Shift is indeed taking place. But one that is not to be feared. A shift within our core—our hearts are waking up….
For example-Occupy Wallstreet. After years of grumbling about the government and big business causing the decline of the middle class in America, people are finally standing together to speak out. Now that the down spiral of the economy has left many homeless and struggling, it has also made us realize that we need to work together in community to pick up the pieces and make positive changes for the good of all.
More solopreneurs and small businesses are taking the socialpreneuership role. They want to give back and make a difference to the world. They are passionate about a cause and as their business grows, it makes available more resources to support the cause. Just today I came upon www.virginunite.com. This is Richard Branson’s website where he talks about socialpreneurship and shows how we can be involved.
This week I went to a networking lunch. I’ve attended these before in previous years, but this time, there was a different energy. I soon realized that as each individual stood up to talk about their business, they took time to give testimonials about someone else’s business. And many of them are starting to talk about giving portions of their profits to causes they believe in.
So, I believe that 2012 will bring about major shifts in how we serve the world and each other. And each day I am thrilled to see more hearts open to the possibilities ……
