Exercise 6 – Divinely Inspired Delegation

One of the biggest challenges in work sometimes is when we take on too much when we try to do everything, either we might be telling ourselves that other people can’t do it as well as we can. Or we might be telling ourselves that there’s so much pressure on us and we have to perform, we have to be the one that knows the answer. In all these situations, I invite you to consider that as a business strategy that’s fundamental to business, that sometimes you’re going to need to delegate things to other people. No company or corporation can be born if the business owner never delegates anything or gives it to someone else to do. And sometimes we forget that there are other people around us that can help us. And in addition to that, that the divine can help us. And sometimes there’s things we can delegate to people. And you might even find that there’s things that you can delegate to the divine, not in a way of commanding the divine but In a way of giving them up to the divine, so there’s that Serenity Prayer you might have heard of. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. That in and of itself is a form of humility and understanding, there are certain things we can’t do. And so what we’re going to do in this section is look to be as powerful as we can as individuals, and at the same time, use the divine help and listen to the divine guidance for when we need to engage other people’s help or just let things go. Open your mind and your heart to the possibility that you can connect with the divine. decide that you would like to connect with the divine and invite the divine to guide you in this process. Close your eyes and silently breathe in and out focusing on your breath. Count to three as you breathe in and count to three as you breathe out. Do this for 30 seconds. Continue to hold the intention to be open to receiving divine guidance. And now ask the divine to guide you in this work in answering these questions. What work are you currently doing? That could be dropped and eliminated altogether. What would be the financial loss or gain from dropping this work? What would be the time loss or gain from dropping this work? What work are you currently doing that should be delegated? What would it cost to delegate this work to a competent steward and pay Wow. How much time would you free up by delegating this work? How could you reinvest the freed up time to create greater impact and income. Now thank the divine for guiding you in this work. Breathe in and out for 30 more seconds Be open to receiving any other guidance you need to receive. Notice how you feel open your eyes and now write down your answers from the exercise, plus anything else that comes up for you and do this before you go to the next section.
