In my business career, as well as with my clients and students, I developed a firm belief that our business success is 10% and 90% of who we are, the quality of our character.
This is exemplified by Richard Branson, a man with little education but now a billionaire with over 200 companies. Obviously he is a master technician 200 industries. At the other end of the scale, you may have heard the saying that 10% of sellers do 90% of the money. Success is not based entirely on your expertise as the pleasure of customers working with someone who know and care will follow.
Many books have been written to make money, my favorite is "think and Grow Rich". I read that, when I was 12 and went from literally nothing millionaire 25 due to one of the main reasons. I understand that the success had very little to do with specialized knowledge and everything to do with the quality of my mind and character. Thinking is the key to grow rich.
However, it is also been distorted by people saying all you have to do is think and you will succeed, but like the masses have discovered, that doesn't work. The answer is not to think of success alone, but the equipment that makes the thought, your ego personality.
This is the key to success. Who you are and how to react to situations is the Karma, the principle of cause and effect. I believe in working on the root cause of the events in our life, our mind and personality, so that we have to react appropriately and then to get the best results, constantly.
1 our actions cause the subsequent reaction; anger breeds anger, calm, solves problems and moving forward. This is the principle of Karma.
2 we react based on the quality of our mind and personality, which is where they were born our thoughts and experience.
3 What is born is the product of his parents. Our thoughts are reflected in the quality of our ego/personality.
4 Refining who you are will change automatically as you think, react and succeed or fail. If you're not working on the mind that is thinking, then all that you want the thinking there will give good results.
5 we must learn to think correctly because that is not taught in school.
This article is about one of the old sayings that live, but have found many people, my students and clients including, not fully grasp, especially when they think they do. I now use this one saying express method where you can get much more value than already large amounts of information and good thoughts accumulated in your mind. Here's the first key in refining the equipment that makes the thought, so learn to see beyond the surface.
As with many such ' wise men ', we often miss the hidden value and the most important fact when we think we understand the words of wisdom; ?Work for business, do the best they can for reasons to do the best possible?.
We are not perfect. Doing the best that may not mean what it should be perfect, unless you're perfect you. The emphasis is on "may" and not "the best".
Practices of self-development rarely obvious reasons are done for or literals alone. This means that the value that is greater than ' do the best they can for reasons to do the best you can ', not just doing the best job possible.
Where you have great value in bringing out your ego for you to see and master. Piety, sincerity, laziness, to name a few quality, you'll see clearly in any activity or act.
When you learn to see the hidden meaning in all things, rather than the obvious meaning of the surface, you learn to see the reality in all situations. The problem is how to see what is hidden when it is something that couldn't possibly know? And, once you achieve this ability, as you know if what you think is the meaning hidden in the obvious is correct and true thing to find? Or, if there is more that you lost yet?
For this reason, the principle of work for work is about mastering your ego. It is the ego that interprets what you see and meet. Is that person really insulting you or are they enduring some serious suffering in their life and just lashing out at anyone. You can easily imagine how your reactions would change based on know the truth and so avoid a bad argument.
When you do something, or are able to give something, but you get to choose what you give, your ego will show with all the reasons and justifications to give less, work less, coming out soon or before it is complete or, really, a half-ass job. The master craftsmen can be compared to a campy compulsive. Both work very hard and long, but the difference is that one works for reasons of better quality of work and other works just to keep busy, or for the benefit of the ego to be seen to be hard work.
The personality of the ego, which is the appearance of the control of our intellect, is the barrier separating our consciousness to listen to our intuition and wisdom. This ego is the "Home Builder ' which Buddha when he became enlightened and said;"Oh Home Builder, I saw that and never build a House for me again. "
This was his statement to say that he saw his ego and how our mind fills with thoughts, desires and fears, etc., that keep us ignorant of the truth and the reality of what we are, thus separating us from the Enlightenment.
For reasons to do the best job you can ... and for the sake of seeing your ego with all its flaws, selfish to achieve success you want, or simply have a better life and become a better person that brings greater success both at work and in your reports.
Apply this principle in any wise saying and will be well on your way to earning a lot more out of life what you previously thought possible.
