According to The Business Insider, Steve Jobs only downloaded one book, ever, to his iPad 2: Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda. To those in the know, this should come as no surprise, as it was also his parting gift to all of the attendees at his funeral — the last gesture he made towards everyone closest to him on earth. Jobs’ spirituality was not widely well-known during his life, and while many will contest that certain business practices employed by apple were, and are, far from “enlightened”, there is no denying the company’s massive success, due mainly to it’s innovative, progressive and quality products — products that came about, in large part, due to Jobs’ fierce devotion to his intuition; his ability to “follow his gut”. Indeed, many of you are most likely reading this on a device born of that very intuition.
For anyone who has read Autobiography of a Yogi, there is no missing the connection. A business man himself, Yogananda was one of the first Indian sages to bring Meditation and yoga to the western world, creating the non-profit Self-Realization Fellowship in California by the time he was 27, an organization that continues to expand and thrive to this day, nearly a century later. No small feat for a child born to a humble family in the heart of India in the 19th century. Though a devoted businessman, Yogananda’s first mission, of course, was the awakening of humanity. The former was born out of the desire of the latter, which is, in essence, the heart of all successful businesses: they are secondary. They are the tools of a larger desire.
Here, then, are 15 quotes on enlightened business practice, from an Indian Master who knew quite a bit about both.

Ancient Secrets of Kings derives valuable life lessons and success stories from ancient king’s lives and combines it in the form of a self-improvement video course that can transform your life. It helped me bring about a positive change in my life and showed me the way to success. Here are some of my experiences with this video course:
The Three Pillars
The video transformation course is divided into three pillars, namely Egypt, China, and Israel.
The first pillar is China. It focuses on the ancient kings of China and Great Wall of China to prove the importance of setting boundaries. If you do not define boundaries, you are vulnerable to foreign attacks. Some success factors are also discussed in this pillar, such as increasing productivity, eliminating negative thoughts and procrastination while following a schedule for routine tasks. Furthermore, this pillar also emphasizes optimization and organization of your life. This will help you save more time for the things you love.
Egypt is my favorite of the three pillars and the one I found the most interesting. This pillar discusses how you can bring drastic and revolutionary changes in your life that can go a long way towards reshaping your lives. The beauty lies in how the pillar connects the ancient king’s secrets and justifies the fact that these secrets are quite applicable even in today’s era. What’s more, you can learn secrets of the pharaohs, finding out how they controlled and managed their global empire for hundreds of years.
Israel teaches one of the most important lessons and shows you the way towards maintaining peace in your life and in the environment around you. Additionally, Israel focuses on money and provides you direction on how you can become financial stable and avoid money problems throughout your life. It also teaches you a few things about love. It acts as a guideline to help you get both money and love at the same time in your life, and convert your life into a dream life.
Some of the important concepts elaborated in the video course are given below:
Set Boundaries and Organize
The theme of the first pillar revolves around the concept of setting boundaries for protecting your internal assets from foreign attacks. Creating boundaries acts as a two-edged sword: it not only protects against external threats but also helps in organizing and eliminating distractions. China compels you to optimize your life and increase productivity if you want to achieve success.
Opportunities and Risks
Another important life lesson featured in the course is to pounce on every opportunity that comes your way. If you want to be successful in today’s fast-paced world, you should stay one step ahead. You will be amazed to know that even ancient kings who lived thousands of years ago took advantage of this proactive principle.
It also tells you how you can turn the tables against risks and use them to your advantage, just as Hatshepsut did during her reign. While she was preparing Thutmose III for his reign, she wore a male king’s attire to indicate her leadership status. When she left, Egypt was a prosperous country. She focused on channelizing the energies and resources in the right direction and delivered outstanding results. Common examples of people taking risks and succeeding are Donald Trump, Ray Kroc and Oprah Winfrey. The secret is that they took calculated risks which paid off big time.
Take Advantage of Available Resources
We only complain about lack of resources and that is one of the reasons for our downfall. According to this interesting video course, you should focus more on taking advantage of the resources you have instead of wasting time complaining about the resources you lack. Whether it is tangible resources or intangible resources, you should utilize them to the fullest. Skills, ideas, people, and knowledge are non-physical assets you can use to change your fortunes.
Overall, the video transformation course is worth your time, effort, and money because it teaches you the success secrets of ancient kings in a completely different way, which you can use to achieve your goals in today’s world. It is easy to understand the concepts and ideas thanks to the examples provided. Even a beginner can learn these important lessons and use them in their routine life to succeed.
