The Highest Goal

I would not be where I am today, with the wonderful life I’ve been given, without the course. And I am not alone in this experience. Not a year goes by when I do not run into other graduates who feel just as I do, grateful that they had the course early in their lives. We did not know it at the time, but the experience would be the first step in a lifelong journey toward the topic of this book: finding and pursuing with courage and perseverance one’s highest goal.

Wondering who said this?

It was Jim Collin’s – author of “Good to Great” and what is he talking about? The course that Michael Ray teaches at Stamford called Creativity in Business. Not all of us would have the fortune of attending the course in person, so Michael has written a book called “The Highest Goal – The secret that sustains you in every moment” and the above is a foreword written by Jim Collins in that book.

I just finished reading it and I was delighted and at the same time humbled to read it. Based on true Spiritual principles and knowledge and wisdom derived from Vedanta and ancient Indian scriptures, this is a book that calls upon people to connect up with their “highest goal” and using it on a day to day basis while dealing with the up’s and down’s of day to day job. And how does one define and identify what is one’s Highest Goal? Michael draws a simple but very powerful visioning exercise for one to arrive at it. Aligning one’s effort towards the goal helps one find success and fulfillment in every day’ activity.

As someone who teaches the Art of Living corporate programs, I found it delightful that someone like Michael has been teaching these principles for years now at a University like Stamford.
