To be healthier and have more time, to get closer to themselves without allowing external irruptions of any kind.
At first sight the word personal armor gives us an idea of being protected, safe, calm, it generates the sensation of having an armor to repel problems, if we speak militarily it is an idea of fortress created to keep away unforeseen attacks and to be able to maintain the essential resources to the interior, the clear roads for the transit of our necessities and commerce.
For many years I have used this concept (shielding) associated with business, with the idea that our clients manage to create that strength around them and be able to anticipate weaknesses and unforeseen events, starting from the economic resources that are like the fuel needed for any machine to work what is mentioned as a financial shielding, then towards the order and structure that we must have so that entropy does not waste the resources, which we have called management shielding, and finally the correct maintenance with global governance through laws and taxes, which comes to be the patrimonial shielding. And this is part of a model that works and will continue to work, but what about personal shielding, as a quality of life approach?
Today we are in a change of paradigms at a planetary level that has come to rescue from the bottom of the past priorities, vital elements that in the madness of the exitism at any price that proliferated in education and markets were postponed.
In education, vital courses for deep reasoning have been eliminated, philosophy, art, civic education have been avoided and with this the great teacher of truth today is the media, “an ocean of information one centimeter deep” that stuns us without filters to think and reflect on the basis of fundamental value principles.
Personal shielding and quality of life
Today, it is not enough to have our businesses “armored” if we do not build a “personal armor” in people, with a view to quality of life. The role of the person enters vehemently to tell us that there is no point in so much external success if people do not have internal and external quality of life, if we are preying on our brains and hearts with vain and often even ill-intentioned information, and if we transform the environment into a warehouse of inputs to create our reality.
This is why the concept of sustainability must be a return to the origin, to a balance that cannot be postponed. If we take on our businesses in an integral way, shielding people as the first element, we will have everything that academics have been writing about for years, committed teams, high efficiency, creativity and that mystique that gives positive performance.
Personal Shielding arises from a transmutation of mineralized elements in our psyche into new and subtle ones that generate orchards of ideas and superior quality of life.
The road has just begun for this global awareness, but the new generations, with their pros and cons, come with a different set-up, closer to questioning why things are done? To be healthier and have more time, to get closer to themselves without allowing external irruptions of any kind. Being a leader of new generations requires to have internalized this personal shielding that they demand, and the best way to do this is to begin to assume it, a lot of reflection of the eternal questions, why do I do this? Am I in what I want? What do I do with my time? Answering this is not simple, but it is part of human nature to determine your answers and not just from market and business sources.
The world has changed as the experts say, there will be no return to “business as usual”. So everyone is invited to join the life model, welcome to Personal Shielding with an eye towards quality of life.
