Governing Business & Relationships

£14.99

Product description

Good condition paperback. Some light wear and small scrapes on the binding and spine. Tight binding. Internally clean and bright.

“Business persons mechanically follow routine practices laid down by self-styled business schools. Spouses and parents are overwhelmingly emotional and impulsive in their behaviour with each other and their children. There is little reason and judgement governing actions and relationships. Human beings blindly adopt a life set by predecessors. The intellect, lacking development and strength, hardly plays a part in the conduct of their business and home. Consequently, families are torn apart, business houses collapse and nations are at daggers drawn. While governing bodies in the fields of education, politics and religion helplessly gaze at the internal and external crises that humanity faces. The solution lies in developing a powerful intellect to gain suzerainty over the perennial confrontations of the world.”

“The world today is in a state of chaos due to the perversion in human development - all intelligence and no intellect. One needs to manage oneself before attempting to manage anything external in life. Why do you have to compare yourself with others. Just play your life’s role without an air of superiority or inferiority. The tsunami of greed has swallowed up giant corporations and companies causing financial crashes round the world. It is a natural law that relationships built on rights shall perish. And those built on duties flourish. Parents fail to set examples of right living but merely pester their childern [sic] with ill founded advices.”
