His Spiritual Awakening

He gave him a new spiritual name, Yogini. First and foremost he is a servant of God, and his journey could have never taken the dramatic turns it has without Him. His spiritual being is always the first consideration in everything he does. He is a devout follower of the Sanskrit religion.
The Birth of The QI Group
His partner, Vijay Eswaran and his wife, came to his Manila, Philippines home for a business meeting. Both being vegetarians, this gave them a foundation and a like-minded nature to begin conversations. They developed a friendship overtime, and he begin to learn the ways of network marketing. It began to click how he could get paid based on teaching people and then earning from their loyalties. He thought his friend wanted to get him involved with Costway stores, which he didn’t want any part of. In fact, his friend led him down a whole different path. He wanted him to speak to people and motivate them, two things Bismark knew he could do. When he believes in something, he knew that he would have great influence over them. He joined him and they were able to build a network. After many years they formed what was called the QI Group.
Gems of Wisdom
He admits that he is not a corporate person; he is more focused on the marketing aspects. However, when he was approached by Mr. Eswaran to take the Director’s position, he reluctantly agreed. During his initial days in this role, he struggled with how he could communicate with the more than 1,500 employees that the company has. He didn’t feel that the employees needed to learn to enhance their skills; rather he wanted to teach them the philosophy they were grounded on. He started with internet posts and blogging for them to read. Then he began to put his works down essay, and then it was made into a book. The book “Gems of Wisdom” was born. These days he enjoys Tweeting on Twitter and reaading the response that he gets from his blogs.

Knowledge gained in the Philippines
Joseph Bismark may have found his calling in his life in the Philippines many years ago. He was a young lad when he left home and became a monk. He was able to do this within the mountains of the Philippines. He then was able to bring his learned spiritual belief with him into the business world. He had been greatly impacted by the teachings in the ashram within the mountains. He was able to take his spiritual principles and combine them with business principles. He rose swiftly with this combination. He became the Managing Director for the QI Group in the year 2008. He was a key player within the Qnet company founding. He is a firm believer in the power of strong team players. He is an individual who does place a high value in integrity and the running of a business. His belief does include that success is not measured by achievements of a material nature. Success does include a spiritual awakening within the world of business. This is inner peace combined with service that is both meaningful as well as selfless. Joseph Bismark has proven that he is an intellect and a businessman. He has shown that there truly is a place for spirituality in the corporate business world.
Joseph was born into luxury. He had everything money could buy. He soon learned that money was not the most important thing in life. He learned that money can not bring you everything. Money can not teach a person everything he/she needs to learn.
Joseph left home at the age of nine. He left behind all of his creature comforts for a life as a monk. He spent about 7 years in the Philippines. It was during this time his life was forever changed. It was during this time he learned that life wasn’t about money or the material things in life, it was about spirituality. Life is about being true to oneself, not inviting all those other distractions in.
Joseph returned home during his later teen years. He came back home a changed man. Soon after he came home, he was pushed into the corporate world of business. He have been placed knee-deep in the corporate world, but his new ideals still remained in tact. His path as a monk taught him not to “sell out.” He quickly found a healthy way of combining the two. He has learned there is a way to be a success;and yet, remain true to who you are inside.
THE NEW WORLD
He is now bringing his new way of thinking to the business world. He is finding a great way to share the lessons he learned during those years as a monk.
The corporate world can be very cut-throat. It’s full of people who will do what they have to for the sake of survival. In his lessons, Joseph teaches there is way to survive without being nasty. In the corporate world, you work your butt off to make it to the top. Truth be told, only a few end up making it. In the business world, there is a sense that you need to change who you are to succeed. There is a sense you have to become something you are not.
This is exactly what Joseph is trying to impress upon those he teaches. He teaches a person can still be a success, without stepping on others to get there. A person can still be a success and treat his/her co-workers with respect.
What the business world lacks is spirituality. The idea is to connect with something greater then yourself. As people, we are taught to believe you need to sell your soul to make it in the corporate world. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The idea is to stay humble and grounded, no matter how far up the ladder you go. The idea is to be honest about who you are, without i being held against you. These ideals have been lacking for a long time. Joseph is just one of the few who are trying to bring it back.
The great thing about Joseph is he has lived in both worlds. He came from a wealthy background; and yet, he has also walked a humbling path. This path is what he says “shaped” him. He has learned that money comes and goes. Spirituality is the only thing which will last.

Truth is, a person can’t really be successful in business, without being successful in faith. It’s time we stop excluding one from the other. It’s time to embrace both, because having success in both can teach us all something of value.
