You, The Business Warrior, Part I

Back by popular request. This is a fantastic article.

A very different from "normal" business article by David Cameron.

What is The Way of the Business Warrior? If business is your game, get ready for the ride of your life.

First, let us begin with the obvious. In your business, you either make the sale, or you don't. You do or you don't, there is no try. You get the customer or you don't, there is no try. Your business makes a profit or it doesn't, there is no try. There is no in between. Why? Why do things work this way?

There is an order by which all things arise and work. Every moment is a moment of new creation. On and off states, called dualities, is what we experience in all of life, including business.

Here is a question for you. Do you think our moments arise by accident or as an exactly perfect outcome of a series of natural laws? Remember, there is no middle ground. It is either all accidental or all perfection, but not a mixture of the two.

If it was all accidental, none of the laws of physics would work,biology would not work, nothing would work. Therefore, it is all a precise outcome of set laws. The Way of the Business Warrior is the one that gets you on the path to discovering the truth behind what happens in your business.

Now you can make your life a glorious adventure financially by understanding the totality of experience and creation.

Michael Gerber, author of the best-selling business book, The E-Myth Revisited, says in that book that "Contrary to popular belief, my experience has shown me that the people who are exceptionally good in business aren't so because of what they know, but because of their insatiable need to know more. The
problem with most failing businesses I've encountered is not that their owners don't know enough about finance, marketing, management, and operations - they don't, but those things are easy enough to learn - but they spend their time and energy
defending what they think they know. The greatest businesspeople I've met are determined to get it right no matter what the cost."

Here is another interesting bit of information. Harvard Business School and INSEAD (the top European business school) have concluded from research that the two most effective new business tools for twenty-first century executives are meditation and
intuition. These are metaphysical subjects! Why?

Robert Kiyosaki, in his best-selling book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, says that money is just an idea.

In fact, money is merely an 'energy exchange system', a means of exchanging complimentary values built within any two participants. The Way of the Business Warrior looks under the hood to know how this all works, and uses that knowledge to
create exact outcomes, to create and thrive instead of react and survive.

Henry Ford once said, "Whether you think you can or you can't - either way you are right."

Everyone has things that they can do now that they could not do before.

You can now walk while as a child you could not. The ground never changed, but you did.

You can now read while you once could not. The English language never changed, but you did.

At one time, Bill Gates could not write software, now he can. The world did not change, Bill did.

At one time, Oprah Winfrey did not have the attention of millions of people worldwide, now she has. The world did not change, Oprah did.

At one time, Jesus could not perform miracles, and then he did. Miracles did not change, Jesus did.

At one time, the Buddha was not enlightened, and then he was. The ways of the universe did not change, the Buddha did.

As Deepak Chopra says, "Within every desire is the mechanics of its fulfillment." And of course there is the famous quote by Jesus Christ that says, "If you can? Anything is possible for him who believes."

Do you get the picture?

The second half of this article will be posted tomorrow.
