The Power of Love
The Beatles were right! "All we need is love!"
That's because love is the most powerful force in the universe ...in your home, your workplace and in your neighbourhood. Recurring research proves it.
For you business people who doubt my linking the words 'love' and 'workplace', here's what one top management guru says on the subject:
“Love in organizations is the most potent source of power we have available.” ~ Margaret Wheatley, U.S. author, consultant & management guru (From: ‘Leadership and the New Science’)
Like other positive emotional states, love, like its namesakes, improves human performance, including the way the brain processes information.
Love creates more order in the pattern of signals coming from the heart to the brain thus facilitating cortical function. (See Institute of Hearthmath for powerful research on this 'stress-optimizing' issue.)
That's the part of the brain those of us who work were hired to use. It's the same part that we entrepreneurs are wise to optimize if we want to stay in business!
