Life, spirituality, and work:
Human foibles lead to ignorance towards psychology of living. The younger generation today terms every business activity purely as means of earning money. This race to deserve is leading us to unethical business practices causing issues that are of severe concern to all of us. Everyone needs money to live his life and you need to be ambitious and dreaming to earn money and prove to be the best.
Running a business principled way is need today and only spirituality could lead us to this route. Spirituality leads us to improve and awake our inner soul and stops us from doing unfair practices. The fair practices may not give us output right today with every deal, but for sure that repay us in long term. The quote 'God repays, but not every Saturday' explains the truth nicely and emphasises for the best right way to adopt in our routine business.
Spirituality arrives our way when we pray and keep faith in holy souls and follow their directions. Listening to veteran philosophical leaders and monks also recharges us and encourages us. Let's experience the life's interpretation the holy way and lead to a prosperous way.
