The path of spirituality is essential to what we do in business. Spirituality has new meanings. For many, it is a dirty word; for others it is a new-age fad. There are very few who realise the value of spirituality in day-to-day management of work and life. Spirituality is a force in management. It is in fact a strong business concept.
To me spirituality is no different to life. It is closely intertwined in everything I do. I don’t find any conflict between business and spirituality. I am not at all interested in the business of spirituality. But I am more convinced and have long been converted to the need of spirituality in business. The business of spirituality I do not appreciate but spirituality in business is an absolute must. Spirituality is a destination. Having no spirituality in business is like a ship with sails billowing in the wind running speedily and smoothly with no particular direction. Spirituality is the destination that makes the whole purpose of sailing necessary.
I find no contradiction in being spiritual and being an entrepreneur. To me, success is defined by certain attributes that apply to both the spiritual and entrepreneurial spheres. Both require patience, perseverance, drive, determination, and discipline. One shouldn’t be worried that one is spiritual. How can one not be spiritual? To me, the physical existence is just an extension of the spiritual. Whether one hopes to enter heaven or another life, what you have now is this life and you have to make it count. It is both spiritual and material logic to be at your best in what you do and in every endeavour you get involved in.
