Success Principles and Practices by Keith Johnson

Happy Saturday Blog Visitors and Subscribers.

Today I am giving a shout out to you all about my brand new book SUCCESS PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES. For about fifteen years I have been following the teachings of the historical Buddha and also those of the current and 14th Dalai Lama formerly of Tibet and now from Dharamsala, India. The teachings are powerful and transformative. The Dalai Lama has said many, many times the following: "to practice virtue is to practice success". That is the essence of my new book - virtue. So, with that said, the book takes the plunge and dives deeply into 100 virtues that you can practice and that can become the TRUE foundation of success for your life and activities. Our modern culture has a very narrow definition of success: having a fat wallet. But that is not necessarily true, as my book tells you (via two stories which I will not reveal here but I want you to read in the book itself). Money is precarious. If you earn it correctly, it is a blessing. If you earn is wrongly and by harming others, it will not last long, to be blunt. So, success that I portray here is LASTING SUCCESS and not transitory success. The book is just five US dollars and change and is finally posted and live at CreateSpace and Amazon. Happy Reading to you all. I sincerely wish you success with your lives and endeavors. Cheers, Keith

The Direct Path to Being

When we are centered in pure being - we attain peace of mind and peace of body. We feel totally relaxed and happy and content. However, to attain this state of existence takes some practice and through practice, we overcome obstacles placed in our path by beings of lower energy levels. The mantra that can help us to attain higher and higher states of true being is "OM" according to yoga masters and gurus of the Far East. I have tried to capture the essence of this thought in a diagram which I have included at the top of this post for your convenience. Wishing You Peace.

Entrepreneurship Matters by Keith Johnson

Dear Blog Friends, Subscribers and Visitors:

In 2012 I was working for a payments-processing software company (Qpay) in North Miami, Florida and was greatly inspired by the company's owners and C level executives. I learned greatly from this work experience and I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding the journey of the entrepreneur. Hence, "Entrepreneurship Matters" was born (as a book).

Today, I work for a different company, however remain inspired by entrepreneurs and how these brave individuals take a concept and bring it from just a concept into a final product or service that the marketplace can consume. I would say that I have worked for about 10 great entrepreneurs in my lifetime and each has helped me to further appreciate the need for entrepreneurship.

The opposite of entrepreneurship of course is government and stagnancy. Right now, I am working at a company that has me writing final written manuals for submission to the FAA. It is a difficult task because government does not evolve as quickly as the business world. So, many things that are required in these manuals are legacies of the past in modern day business. So, you see, entrepreneurship helps us to move forward as a society and improve on process.

My 2012 book Entrepreneurship Matters is still a great book and the content will still help you to move your idea into the marketplace. I wish you success with your professional endeavors.

Best Regards, Keith Johnson

Dogma - Helpful or Not?

One of the biggest challenges of human life is crossing the bridge - from the theoretical side to the practical side. In school, we are essentially indoctrinated to follow dogmas. We are taught, for example, there are two parties in politics - Republican and Democrat. We are taught that life is simple and that there is only right and wrong. For example, it is right not to smoke marijuana and it is wrong to smoke it. We are also taught to take sides - like some people are Open Source software proponents and others are Commercial software proponents (e.g. Adobe and Microsoft and other major software branded products).

So, life in this sense is simple - you just choose a side and stay there.

This is the dogmatic approach to life.

However, when school is out and you get out there and work and travel and interact with people, you will see that life is not black and white and there are more than two sides to many issues. One reason why Donald Trump is so popular right now, I believe, is that he is presenting his vision of life and its problems and solutions in a dogmatic way - you choose left or right and you see things in a black and white manner. But that is not correct. Use your intelligence here for a is far more complex, right? Believe me, if things were that simple, then issues that the world faces right now....would have been solved long ago.

I see dogma as a diving board, if you will. For example, to dive into a pool, it is great to bounce up and down upon the diving board a few times and then you launch yourself into the pool's water. But, once you are in the water, the diving board is "up there" and is thus a memory - now you are in the water and now you need to swim.

So, friends and readers, the purpose of this blog post is simple - dogma is helpful when we are young and in development. However, eventually, we need to move beyond a dogmatic approach to life. Life is indeed complex and by recognizing life with all its complexities and being able to work with this fact we will be able to solve problems in a much better way - both immediately and over the long haul. Thanks and All The Best, Keith
