The Importance of Spirituality in Business


The road to success can lead us astray from our spirituality. We have to make sure that we get the next promotion, the next raise, the next big client. Losing our sense of self is something we don’t even notice, mostly because we are too busy trying to reach for the stars. The stars are sought by reaching to that place inside of us. That place that gives us inner peace and serenity. That place of comfort and confidence. Real success in the business world comes from understanding who and what you are. What your strengths are. What your weaknesses are. The ability to feel a sense of connection with yourself. This is what many business leaders do when faced with life changing decisions.

Joseph Bismark has been bringing spirituality to business all his life. He spent years studying with monks at an ashram in the mountains. It is this unique perspective that sets him apart from his colleagues. He believes in the philosophy of treating your employees the way they want to be treated. It makes them more productive. A positive attitude in the workplace can do wonders for morale. Helping others to receive a spiritual awakening has been the goal of his life.

A healthy lifestyle will carry over into your work habits. Mr. Bismark believes that creating these habits will transform lives for the better. Positive imagery is also important. You must believe you will be successful, to be successful. It is this fresh and dynamic leadership style that makes his businesses flourish. His innovative approach to business, mixed with his supportive nature, keeps his style upbeat. He also believes in giving back to humanity. A philanthropist to the core, he will always give his time or money to aid an organization.

Being spiritual, and at the same time, being prosperous, may seem impossible. Joseph Bismark proves that it is not. Spirituality will bring you closer to that feeling of tranquility we all long for. To be comfortable with who we are. Bringing that ideology into the world of business benefits everyone.

Want To Reach Your Goals? Start By Writing Them Down


Have you ever realized that you were breaking promises you made to yourself? Sometimes, I think that the world is moving way too fast for me to keep up. A rowboat caught up in a tidal wave of information. I also have a tendency to procrastinate. Sometimes, without even knowing I’m doing it. With this in mind, I stumbled upon a blog post by philanthropist Marc Sparks. He is responsible for more than 60 start-up companies. Apparently, he knows exactly what he is doing in life, and how to get there. I read the article with an open mind.

It was interesting to read that he uses simple methods to keep his thoughts in order. He maintains that the very act of putting pencil to paper makes you accountable to the most important person: yourself. I can picture it vividly. Marc Sparks, a successful entrepreneur, sitting at his desk and writing on a fresh white pad of paper. It makes for a humbling experience. In this ultra high-tech world, this man still creates a list of goals the old-fashioned way.

Pardon the pun, but something then sparked inside of me. I realized that to reach my goals I had to first understand what they were. Day after day, I was zipping back and forth from one client to another. Comfortable in my complacency. I was working toward nothing because I hadn’t committed to anything. He makes the point to habitually update the list as a constant reminder, and he is correct. Without a constant reminder, I am prone to forgetting. Letting the ideas slip casually through the fingers of my mind. In that instant, I pledged to write out, by hand, what my goals in life really were. The amazing thing is, I am surprised at what I wrote down.
