Fame, Fortune, and Ambition [Book]

Fame, Fortune, and Ambition by Osho

By: Osho

Book Overview: Fame, Fortune, and Ambition examines the symptoms and psychology of preoccupations with money and celebrity. Where does greed come from? Do values like competitiveness and ambition have a place in bringing innovation and positive change? Why do celebrities and the wealthy seem to have so much influence in the world? Is it true that money can’t buy happiness? These questions are tackled with a perspective that is thought-provoking, surprising–and particularly relevant to our troubled economic times.

“[The] will to power is the greatest sickness man has suffered from.  And all our educational systems, all our religions, all our cultures and societies are in absolute support of this sickness.  Everybody wants his child to be the greatest in the world.  Listen to mothers talking about their children, as if they have all given birth to Alexander the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Joseph Stalin, Ronald Reagan… Billions of people are rushing toward power.  One has to understand that this tremendous urge to power is arising from an emptiness within you.  A man who is not power-oriented is fulfilled, contented, at ease, at home as he is.  His very being is an immense gratitude to existence; nothing more is to be asked.  Whatever has been given to you, you had never asked for.  It is a sheer gift out of the abundance of existence.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

“All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively.  Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth.  Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer. ~ Niccolo Machiavelli

 

“Be the one they want injured in the warmup. Who blurs the line between hate and respect. Who can never be stopped, only feared. Make your mark in each and every game. Today, tomorrow, next saturday.” ~ Unknown
