Book Description

"There is a secret to walking the Three-Fold Path to Mastery and to achieving the success, fulfillment and joy that is your birthright. It is a simple secret. And though it is the solution to having everything in life that you want, very few people will actually use this Key to open the door to the treasures that their future holds for them." - from Mastery At Work

Mastery At Work: 18 Keys For Achieving Success, Fulfillment And Joy In Any Profession, is a rare book. Based on The Three-Fold Path to Mastery, it reveals unusual and practical business advice, as well as secret techniques derived from spiritual and mystical traditions for transcending ordinary existence to achieve both personal evolution and professional success. This is a book that transforms lives.

From the Publisher:

Mastery At Work is an enlightening and informative new book that is transforming the way people think about life and work. Drawn from proven business strategies and ancient spiritual teachings, Mastery At Work presents practical techniques anyone can embrace and use to work more productively and with greater skill, as well as to lead an uncommonly joyful life, regardless of daily circumstances. Based on The Three-Fold Path to Mastery philosophy created by the author, Mastery At Work describes the pathways that can lead to a life of success, expertise, balance and fulfillment.

Taken together, these pathways (Soft Skills, Professional Skills, and Continuous Improvement) comprise a powerful life-way, as appropriate for the longtime seeker as it is for the spiritual novice. Almost all of us work, and work (especially nowadays) can be fraught with difficulties: lack of meaning, lack of security, frustrating relationships, to name a few. Grace, through this prism of work, is providing the public at large a process into deeper experience and understanding. This is a book you can give to anyone as an ultimate, self-guided personal growth method, whether or not they've ever uttered the word spirituality. To the degree that they embody and express the 18 Keys, they will open inner doors and what they learn and experience will find its outer reflection. Mastery At Work is a work about Mastery Of Life. Belongs on every bookshelf.


"In Mastery at Work, Nicole Grace distinguishes herself by combining wisdom from bushido, Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies with astute insights into the contemporary American workplace, and presenting a practical, startlingly clear roadmap to not only success, but fulfillment, in both work and life."

"Though belonging to the genre of self-help books like those of Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill, [Mastery At Work] still manages to remain fresh and different. [Grace] draws on the wisdom of Japanese Samurais and Buddhism, and combines them with pleasing anecdotes from movies and literature to give an altogether unique look to her book."

"Want to change your life and career satisfaction? Read Mastery At Work... Without any reservations, we're glad to give five stars to this extremely recommended book... a rating [that] is reserved for life-changing books written with enlightening insights that only one in a million books would possess."
