Life should be a continuous balancing of urgent, important priorities, not a fixed set of scales,” says world-renowned mentor and modern sage Master Del Pe in his book, From Success to Fulfillment. The title in itself stands out. It not only emphasises on getting what you want, but also helps the reader enjoy what they have already achieved, without losing their sense of purpose in life.
Master Del Pe, who recently made a trip to Delhi, propounds eastern wisdom and western practicality to attain fulfillment along with success in his book. He calls his book a talisman for people suffering from the, failure of success. Every day, increasing stress from the pressure to perform makes millions realise that their already achieved success is worthless. This book is, apparently, a cure for that.
The author never falls short of providing ways to apply his theory, with exercises to evaluate oneself. After a read, we asked Master Del Pe whether a young career oriented person indeed needs to focus more on fulfillment than success. “Traditionally, young professionals first aspire for success and climb up the corporate ladder thinking of money. Then, when they have fed their material desires, they go for something more spiritual or intangible like social contribution and spiritual service.
But, individuals who attain much success in their careers may fail in many key areas in life, and thus, will have to slow down or quit their careers only to solve their health or family problems. One can traverse both material and spiritual worlds simultaneously and each of these main aspects of life can lubricate the other,” he says.
