Format: Kindle Edition
It was an article called "How to Awaken the Zentrepreneur in You" that first introduced me to John J. Murphy, and after reading it I was ordering the book ZENTREPRENEUR at my favorite bookstore and devoured it. Using his own experiences and what he has gleaned over the years Murphy shares how you can combine Zen practice in your journey as an entrepreneur-- but the book goes farther than that. As the article I read stated: "Whatever it is we do, whether we run a household, our own business, or work for a company, there is a "zentrepreneur" within us all- a soul seeking release and a creative idea seeking expression and manifestation." This means that there are ways to take this practice and make it a lifestyle for yourself.

In the book ZENTREPRENEUR we are able to ask and answer key questions about ourselves, what we want and more importantly what is keeping us from going after it. As Murphy has learned "good ideas are not without risk". That means that we have to be willing to step out on what I call faith and pursue what we want, even if others (and even ourselves) tell us it's not possible.

So many people have great ideas but they are unwilling to do the work to see them realized or birthed. Murphy encourages us to remove the limitations we have set for ourselves and dare greatly. Will everything work out perfectly? No. Will there be challenges? Of course! But the important thing is how you see those challenges and how you use what they teach you as you keep moving forward.

Murphy encourages us to listen to our soul, allow it to guide you. This will help you to realize that you can't change the past or even the present. All you can change is yourself and how you are adapting to what is. Using that information we are able to find true happiness and success in whatever we choose to pursue.

Timely and powerful, John J. Murphy's ZENTREPRENEUR speaks to the core of what it takes to succeed.

I almost did not buy this book, but I am so glad I did. One of the biggest "aha" moments for me is when "The cost of doing nothing" was addressed. Mr. Murphy used examples from his own experience and from a business perspective to address this topic. In my own experience if I had not purchased this book I would not have 3 pages of logical, yet extremely helpful advise on how to be a successful leader, entrepreneur, motivator, problem solver, and human being. Having spent many years in the corporate world as a business leader my experience has taught me that silos exist everywhere, it is very rare that organization work as a system. Mr. Murphy outlines a "Zen" approach to breaking down barriers, building teams, creating an environment where collaboration and healthy conflict are encouraged, and practical solutions to problem statements are addressed. All organizations are systems and dependent on each part to function as designed, when only the symptom is addressed, the system will break again. It requires behavioral change, culture change. “Culture changes when the system changes” Mr. Murphy used this platform to share his failures, successes, lessons learned, and passion with us - practicing the age old rule that you must give to receive. As Murphy stated - "I am in the business of transformational change" and I feel that I now have one more "tool" in my tool box to be successful at overcoming disbelief, which ultimately creates a change that is transforming. Thank you Mr. Murphy for your wisdom.

Zentrepreneur delivers a powerful message and shares with the reader ways to look at improving the internal workings of any business organization, much the same way we must look at our individual spiritual progress for better results. Growth, as a result, is achieved through following practices that recognize harmony and balance between human awareness, alignment to universal energy and developing clearer preceptions for the improvement of one's quality of life. John- through sharing his challenging and empowering life experiences, shows us the way forward to accept responsibility for any event, not buying into a victimhood type of thinking and extinguishing any fear that holds us back from reaching our full potential.

This is excellent. The focus on cooperation instead of competition and win-win instead of win-lose was shown to be practical rather than a hypothetical idea. Action rather than getting paralysis of analysis was a breath of fresh air. I'm eager to put his practical teachings into practice.

This book purchased to be given away as a Christmas present for one of my adult children, and a birthday gift for another of my adult children, so I haven't actually read it. When I read the review of it in my local newspaper though I thought it sounded like a unique and wonderful book and one that my adult children would really enjoy.
