Let’s move on to the seventh model, Mr. Miles Guo, whose achievements are clear to everyone. His business philosophy is attaching equal importance to sensibility, principle and law, which comply with the idea of traditional Chinese culture. Meeting the three standards of doing things is defined as reasonable, rational and legal. As long as legal, some people do not care about human feelings or if it makes sense, and they only focus on the law. But sometimes, the laws are evil, like the CCP, many of its laws are tyranny, so according to traditional culture, principle should be paid more attention and it must comply with the Way of Cosmos. When focusing on human feelings only, people are likely to lose their mind. Sensibility is emotional, principle is reasonable and law is the bottom line, so all of them should be attached equal importance.
Another concept of Mr. Miles Guo is Eastern Soul and Western Skill, and both Yuda and Pangu reflect this concept, the core of which is the soul of the East, representing traditional Chinese culture. His philosophy is the combination of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. Confucianism pays special attention to family, RESLOVE and people, but Taoism is more powerful. Confucianism keeps integrity for internal governance, but lacks flexibility and wisdom. Taoism appreciates indirect tactics with surprising elements, as lively as water. A lot of the art of war is Taoism. Buddhism is more profound in doing business, but the ordinary people would not aware of it.
The seven models represent the highest business achievements at all times. They all have both internal and external cultivation with way and art, strong internal cohesion, perfect theoretical system and unique core values, so they are all successful in their careers. The wisdom of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism plays an important role on the seven business models that can be defined as Inner Saint and Outer King.
Fan Li was a typical Taoist businessman, who relied on Taoist wisdom to achieve the unity of the Cosmos and human beings, was far-sighted and anticipated. He read the sky every day and looked at business from the perspective of a politician. He was at the border of three countries and he knew exactly the next step of the countries, their political and military moves as well as their needs. Jin Merchant was typical Confucianism, integrity based and morality targeted. As heaven maintains vigor through movements, a gentle man should constantly strive for self-perfection. As earth’s condition is receptive devotion, a gentle man should hold the outer world with broad mind. Pushing the boundaries and moving steadily are the standard of Confucian business. Kazuo Inamori, whose theory is a combination of Confucianism and Buddhism, is a Buddhist monk in Japan. A Japanese monk can have a family and a wife, which is not the same as a Chinese monk. He is a standard monk, a disciple of Buddha, but he combines many things from Confucianism, and his core philosophy is to respect the Cosmos and love human beings, which is from Confucianism. The six endeavors and lean management are from Buddhism. The modern German SMEs are invisible champions and they are a combination of Confucianism and Taoism. Doing business with RESLOVE is from Confucianism. Concentration, depth, inside collect and low profile are from Taoism. Steve Jobs applied Buddhism with simplicity to avoid complexity, not based on the written word, but directly pointed to the human mind. His creativity is unmatched. The Jews unconsciously conform to all the wisdom of Chinese Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism, and this is why they are very powerful, but is the coincidence with the Way. Mr. Miles Guo is well versed in the Way.
Through the analysis of the seven business models, we understand that the Chinese traditional culture plays a vital role. Like fish in the water but unaware of the water; we are in the Way but not realize it. The wisdom handed down by our ancestors is incredible.
