9780787984618: The Secret of the Seven Seeds: A Parable of Leadership and Life

The Secret of the Seven Seeds tells of the successful entrepreneur and writer David Fischman's struggle with his out-of-control life. In this fascinating and instructive book, he reveals his personal story through the fictional character Ignacio Rodriguez. Ignacio is 40-something stressed-out entrepreneur who is utterly overwhelmed—he is at risk for a heart attack, is losing money at his business—where employee morale is at an all-time low, and has no time or energy for his family. At first, he ignores these problems, thinking that if he only works harder, things will all get better. Predictably, his life quickly gets out of control. His doctor recommends that he try meditation to regain balance in his life. Ignacio—who is skeptical—finds a spiritual guide, who helps Ignacio heal by finding his path in the secret of the seven seeds. The seven seeds represent the path to success and balance in life: self-knowledge, meditation, egolessness, service to others, goodness, balance, and freedom.

From the Back Cover:

People Are Talking About The Secret of the Seven Seeds

"In the United States people have more money than ever. They live in biggerhouses, they have achieved record levels of productivity, and they have not increased happiness. Depression is at an all-time high! I was just in Shanghai. In the faces of amazingly hard-working young leaders, I could see this same hunger for things—and the same mistaken belief that these things would lead to happiness and contentment. I see the same hunger—and this same mistaken belief—in the faces of working professionals around the world.

As you read The Secret of the Seven Seeds, think of the master's first question—'Are you happy?'

If your answer is, 'Not as much as I would like to be,' then you—like Ignacio—may need to consider walking down a new path in life. You may want to look in the mirror and thoughtfully assess your true satisfaction with the person who is looking back at you."
—From the Foreword by Marshall Goldsmith

"The poet William Blake wrote that 'the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.' Unfortunately, many Westerners seek their happiness through an excess of material goods and selfish pursuits. David Fischman provides us with a timely and insightful alternative in The Secrets of the Seven Seeds. His engaging approach is in the spirit of the sage Lao Tzu: 'There are many paths to enlightenment. Be sure to take one with a heart.' Fischman develops his theme of the seven seeds of happiness with a heart because he describes his own spiritual enlightenment through the mediation of a 'master,' who taught him the value of meditation and Kriya Yoga to achieve self-knowledge, self-control, and happiness in business and in life."
—Michael Shinagel, Dean of Continuing Education and University Extension, Harvard University

With hectic schedules and demands, there is no space left for peace and reflection, which are as essential as they are scarce today.
