Who is Rumi, and why are his quotes good for business?

I first came across some of Rumi’s quotes on Instagram and thought wow that really resonates with me, so I looked him up.

Rumi (aka Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī) was a 13th century Persian Poet and Islamic Scholar, who lived in (what we now call) Iran.

The quotes that I love are relative for life but translate well into business too.

See what you think…

Business quotes by Rumi
  • Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.
  • Don’t act so small.
  • When you do things from the soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
  • As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.
  • Life is a balance between holding on and letting go.
  • It’s your road, and yours alone, others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
  • Don’t be satisfied with stories. How things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.
  • Inside you, there’s an artist you don’t know about.
  • Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being.
  • Live life as if everything is rigged in your favour.

The first quote in particular resonates within me, as I have ran several businesses over the past 20 years. I feel the strange pull of what I love and it has never lead me astray.
