Holistic health is a concept I’ve embraced for more than 30 years. It’s a belief that true health is found when the psychological, physical, social and spiritual aspects of people’s needs are all taken into account. I’ve been teased about my belief in vitamins, use of herbal remedies and such – but I’m okay with others thinking I’m crazy because I’m living proof that it works.
I also believe in Holistic Business, but you don’t hear much about that. Companies are applauded when they offer options like job sharing or on-site daycare to create a family-friendly culture. But for the most part, the American marketplace has completely failed to integrate “work” life into a picture of health and well-being.
Business in America is primarily an intellectual pursuit. Which is supposed to result in financial advancement. So why is it that according to the Wall Street Journal, 70% of Americans live pay check to pay check? We’re missing something.
It’s “politically correct” to check your faith in God at the door when you enter the workplace. This emphasis on the intellect and isolation from our basic motivations has resulted in a big fat mess. I have proof there’s a better way – but some think I’m crazy to think I can change the prevailing mindset.
Over the centuries, Jewish people have modeled the holistic business concept because God created it. Consider the fact that Jews are the richest religious group in American society. They make up only 2% of the U.S. population but represent 25% of the 400 wealthiest Americans. Our Judeo-Christian Heritage is rich but we have cast it aside.
When we recognize the connection between the intellect, the heart, relationships and physical health - supporting people at a deeper level - we will get to the heart of transformation. God is in the transformation business.
Cultural transformation starts with you. You have a calling that will lead to fulfillment, success and significance. It is built into your personality, your gifts and the desires of your heart and calls you into your destiny.

You can trade in what YOU know for what GOD knows.
P.S. “Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (Steve Jobs) So yes, I’m still crazy after all these years.
