From the Inside Flap The ups and downs of the economy prove the principle that the more things change, the greater the need for ideas that never change. There’s no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time–tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and culture. In Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money, Rabbi Daniel Lapin offers a practical approach to creating wealth based on the established principles of Jewish tradition. A renowned business consultant and biblical scholar, Rabbi Lapin uncovers a mother lode of wisdom and guidance in Jewish scripture and practice that will increase your potential for creating wealth, no matter what your faith or background may be.
Outlining ten fundamental "commandments" relating to business and money, Thou Shall Prosper explores the economic and philosophic vision of business that has been part of the Jewish culture for centuries. By blending contemporary business stories and his own business experiences with the wisdom of the Torah, Talmudic prescriptions, and even examples from the Zohar (the Jewish book of mysticism), Rabbi Lapin explains the essence of each "commandment" and shows you how to use this knowledge to financially prosper. Commandments include: Believe in the Dignity and Morality of Business, Do Not Pursue Perfection, and Know Your Money. Rabbi Lapin helps you understand such concepts as "being in business for yourself"; avoiding the trappings of a "wage slave"; learning to become a leader; changing with the times; and much more. So that you can apply each principle to your life, Rabbi Lapin suggests engaging and accessible action steps to start you immediately on the path to prosperity.
The principles discussed in Thou Shall Prosper may stem from Jewish culture and religion, but the desire to create wealth is universal. Anyone can learn these principles, apply them, and prosper. In following these ten money–making commandments, not only will you improve your life, you will also discover how business is the best way to "do good" while doing well and how you are in business regardless of how you earn your living. Thou Shall Prosper will change your views of money as well as attitudes towards yourself, and help you identify the critical steps that make success possible. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
