Spirituality and Business Not So Different After All

 

Spirituality in business is best depicted by the life and history of Joseph Bismark. Before realizing his business break through, Bismark embarked on a self-driven spiritual expedition that led him to the Philippines. Here he learned different principles including the meditation and other spiritual cuttings that were very instrumental to his success as an entrepreneur. As he puts it in many occasions, the spiritual lesson that he learned while at convent in the Philippines helped him very much in his search towards financial stability and freedom. Most people seek freedom from external factors but what they do not know is that the threat is actually the enemy within. He understood the values of inner peace and this helped him to understand and view life from a very different perspective.

As it is depicted from Bismark’s expedition, spirituality can actually be traced in most of the business related principles that are currently even taught in business school. Spiritually is a discipline that teaches humanity to hold onto to certain beliefs even though they are not reasonably clear to the human brain. Spirituality is a mind provoking activity that helps the brain achieve its uttermost potential. For instance, meditation is the art of examining one’s self to find his or her inner power and free his thoughts from earthly desires. Bismarck learned this through outs his spiritual expedition.

As he argues, his life now is dedicated to serving others other than himself. He believe that he succeeds in order to save humanity and this principle has been part of his business goal ever since. In business on the other hand, the same principles are applied. For instance, business is a game of faith and hope that returns are going to be made. When you embark on a business as an entrepreneur, you risk losing your resources and money but the intrinsic faith and need to serve others overwhelms your threshold of fear. Entrepreneurs are normally people who feel and see need and they want to satisfy it. That is in actual sense service to humanity. Spirituality teaches giving to the poor and the giving will come back to you and in business the same principle applies.

Spirituality has actually influenced business in that ethical aspects of business are based on spiritual beliefs and teachings. Unfair play for instance in business where unscrupulous business people try to embezzle or deliberately use other people’s resources for their own gain are harshly condemned. Most of the very successful entrepreneurs and businesses are those that have a passion for humanity. Companies are currently taking initiatives to save humanity throughout the world through green technology. Caring for the environment and caring the poor is a spiritual aspect assimilated in business and it works very well in both realms.

Seeing Something with a Fresh Pair of Eyes

In our society, it’s all about the sell. Selling a product is the most important thing. It’s all about the product. Which in a way can be a good thing. Everywhere you look there is a new product. Some of them are helpful, others are not.

We all get attached to certain products. If it works, why not? What happens though when the product you like becomes obsolete. There are lots of products that have had their time, then went bye-bye. It’s terrible, but it does happen.

There are lots of stores that phase things out after a certain period. It’s all about bringing in something new. This can be good, but there is a disadvantage. Sometimes the older products are more durable and sustainable. When this happens, where can you go to find them?
