Belief is irresistible.    – Phil Knight

For some, I realize, business is the all-out pursuits of profits, period, full stop, but for us business was no more about making money than being human is about making blood.  Yes, the human body needs to make blood…But that day-to-day business of the human body isn’t our mission as human beings. It’s a basic process that enables our higher aims, and life always strives to transcend the basic processes of living… When you make something, when you improve something, when you deliver something, when you add some new thing or service into the lives of strangers, making them happier, or healthier, or safer, or better, you’re participating more fully in the whole grand human drama. More than simply alive, you’re helping others to live more fully, and if that’s business, all right, call me a businessman.

Don’t settle for a job or a profession or even a career. Seek a calling.

Have faith in yourself, but also have faith in faith. Not faith as others define it. Faith as you define it.  Faith as faith defines itself in your heart.

  – All of the above excerpted from the excellent Shoe Dog, by Phil Knight – the most thought-provoking business biography I’ve read since Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs.
