We are going to talk today about business. Life is a business. Busyness of life is a business. Business is a process of procuring, selling, and making profit. It is also business to exchange your labor against money, business is a faculty in itself. A mind, which forgets business also forgets what is called goodwill. Business is a faculty of goodwill of a human which can give him stability, identity, creativity, happiness, caring, sharing, understanding and it is also to promote your personality into spheres of other personalities.

Business is only not making money. Those who do business just to make money, they always fail. Business has a fundamental identity to create goodwill forever. You must sell your product and your product should sell you. You must sell your product and your products must sell you. And what is the product? What you are selling? It can be material, it can be services, it can be sophisticated technology, it can be anything, but whatever you sell just remember you are selling for goodwill and for profit.

All businesses, which have ever failed, have failed because they have been handled with absolute ego. It's very funny, one of the business we were selling and all they were reading is how many sales I have made? Sales. Aarae what is the profit? No sign of it. When we figure it out, by that time we were sixty thousand dollar down. "Sir, I have opened a factory."

I say, "Very good, fine." After twelve months I said, "What's your factory is doing?"

He said, "Nothing."

"Have you people?"

He say, "Yeah." And then I found out people were not doing any work, but they were charging over time. I'll tell you one of the funniest things, he called some guy and he say, "Wait for my phone call." The guy waited the whole night and he charged him over time, because he forgot to phone and he paid. Now, if these kind of businesses and these kind of business administration do not sell your shirt, it must be the miracle of God. You don't get into business as you, you get into business to get out of it profit. You will never be a businessman. Business is must get you, the business must become you and you become business, that is the first step of business. Identify yourself with the business you are in, create goodwill, perfect mannerism, perfect environments and perfect, direct talk.

In business people do not like stories, they want to know whether they got it or not? When you spin in a business, you lose a customer, you lose a profit, you lose a chance. Business is your assert, it's just like life. Number three, be on the top of business, otherwise you will go under. Our projectivity in our creativity is a basic motivation. Motivates your life, don't shy away the time, don't miss the opportunity, don't avoid the confrontation.

If you want to sell a product and somebody tell you it's rotten. Listen to that person with absolute grace, may be there is some suggestion in that person's criticism. In business make much out of criticism, negativity and animosity and opposition. Capitalize on every part of it and meditate. Business is a complete meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. and I will like you today share with me my practical work shop, how I became businessman? I am going to share these weeks practically with you. Just please make this posture.

Make this posture, watch this, this is very, it's a conch posture and just concentrate on the third eye. On the third eye not on the two eyes, on the third eye and feel and meditatingly feel that you are a success. Identify yourself with success with absolute mental glory and happiness. Success, success a sound in the space of your total psyche. Success resound in your psyche, expansion to be, stay steady, face it, win it, gain it. Steady, solid like steel, like stone, expand make the base, resound your psyche, 'I am a success, everlasting, forever.'

(Talks in whisper to somebody.)

Expand, expand, expand. Expand your mind, move your solid mind, don't let it stay, not your body. Vibrate, over take, project, success, power of the mind over body. Steady, steady, steady, steady, expand, expand, expand, I am success, I am light, I am opportunity. Feel it practically, feel it, feel it. Project, project, some of you are hesitant to project, what is the use? Project. Tell yourself a million time a breath I am success. I am success, I am in great success. Admit it, believe it, be it.

Success is nothing, but confronting the failure and winning it. You are succeeding, you are succeeding, you are succeeding, you are succeeding. You are success, you are success, you are success, you are success, you are success. Give your mind to repeat it million times, I am a success, I am a success, I am a success, I am a success. You only want to read books and lectures and all that, you don't want to practically succeed. You are a practical success. You are succeeding, you have succeeded, you are a success. You are a business genius, you are business success, you know it all, you are all. Inhale deep, hold it successfully, successfully. Relax. Now clap. Good, good, good and now smile, smile, smile, very good, very good.

Now sit on it, enjoy it. We will meet next Wednesday, how to confront the defeat, and defeat it? I'll take you through the mental vibratory meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. , clean you all up, bear with me, I want you to see successful. Tomorrow will be a different tomorrow, it'll be a tomorrow of success and there shall be no failure. May the long time...
