Business Leaders Are Learning That Success Does Not Always Equal Fulfillment

Business Leaders Are Learning That Success Does Not Always Equal Fulfillment

DENVER, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Things are running like clockwork.  Profits are high, salary is excellent, perks are plentiful.  The media is calling, coverage is positive.  Then poof - it's gone.  Like many entrepreneurs, Brian Gast lived in a bubble – filled with delusions of grandeur and a sense of import.  In his new book, "The Business of Wanting More:  Why Some Executives Move From Success To Fulfillment And Others Don't," Gast shares not only his personal story, but presents the transformational Q7 Process which will help executives, struggling between success and happiness, achieve both.

Somewhere along his journey, Gast says, "I became fascinated by the workings of the psyche and committed myself to dissolving the illusions that kept me from seeing what was true about myself and the world. Something deep inside told me that my life was no accident; that I, in fact, was uniquely equipped to help busy executives discern what truly fulfills them. Taking what I learned about transforming human behavior, I created the Q7 Process to help executives move from success to fulfillment."

The Q refers to the quadrant, one quarter of the four-dimensional grid comprised of Feeling, Acting, Thinking, and Being; the 7 refers to the seven steps of the process.  These steps span three stages:  Preparation (steps 1, 2, and 3); Transformation (steps 4 and 5); and Integration (steps 6 and 7):

Step One:  Take a Fearless Inventory of Your Life

Step Two:  Create A Vision For Your Life

Step Three:  Remove The Barriers To Fulfillment

Step Four:  Burst Your Bubble

Step Five:  Build Your Court Of Support

Step Six:  Create a Personal-Practices Regimen

Step Seven:  Draw A Road Map To Your Future

In "The Business of Wanting More," readers will move through these seven steps, closely evaluating oneself and identifying areas for change.  Gast explains how following the program will integrate one's leadership responsibilities with a whole-life view; tap unused skills; create better ways to respond to high-stress situations while generating more powerful results; and, most importantly, explore how to create a roadmap to success and fulfillment.

"The Business of Wanting More," is an essential handbook for corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and start-up innovators that couldn't be more timely or appropriate in today's competitive and stressful business climate.

"The Business of Wanting More" is for anyone who has worked hard and made sacrifices to achieve their career ambitions only to discover that what they were seeking left them empty, unfulfilled, and lost. Brian Gast is writing for an audience – the successful unhappy – that has been largely ignored and not talked about in business and management publishing," said Brian Watson, Ph.D., former Global Head, Operational Excellence and Capability Development for Credit Suisse.
