The Business Apostolate

Insights to Define and Achieve Your Mission in Life

by Percy M Cannon

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Do you feel that achieving professional success is taking too great a toll on your personal life? Is there something in your personal life that is not allowing you to give your best at work? Do you feel like you're living your life based on someone else's priorities and not your own? The Business Apostolate will provide you with a fresh set of insights to help define your life's mission (your "apostolate"). It will enable you to live your "life journey" across your different personal and business roles. There are many lessons I have learned in my nearly three decades in business. Most of them come from the balancing act of being a dedicated husband and father, while simultaneously climbing the corporate ladder to positions such as general manager and marketing officer in Fortune 100 companies, living in five different countries, and interacting with multiple cultures for work as well as pleasure. It wasn't always smooth, but it has been a continuing process of adjusting and living my life in a manner increasingly consistent with my personal mission statement. In this book, I am grouping my life philosophy into three broad steps: . Step 1: Be 100% accountable for your life. . Step 2: Develop your personal mission statement. . Step 3: Live your personal mission 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is not a book about religion, as the "Apostolate" title may imply, although I will highlight the benefits of continually feeding your soul. It is also not a one-size-fits-all program, but rather a list of insights from which you can extract what you find most applicable to you. Nor is it a quick-fix to produce life-changing results overnight, yet it will hopefully entice you to get started while you are still reading the book. Don't wait until you wake up one day wishing you had lived a more meaningful life. Don't wait for a life-changing event to define your legacy to your loved ones and the rest of the world. Open your eyes now! Join me in the journey toward fulfilling your business apostolate and succeeding in life.
