Quotes[edit]

  • The story of The Secret of the Seven Seeds is based mostly on my personal life. I was the neurotic, materialistic, egocentric person in the story, however, I was fortunate enough to find a few people who helped me put true meaning and happiness in my life and I wanted to share this testimony with readers, and to show them that change is possible as long as there is desire to improve.
    • Fischman (2006) in Alan La Rue "Interview with David Fischman." ACAP Newsletter. July 2006
  • Saber escuchar es más que tener la capacidad de oír las palabras de los demás. Es, principalmente, poseer la capacidad de dejar de oír nuestras propias palabras.
    • Translation: Listening is more than the capacity of hearing other people's word. It's, mainly, the capacity of stop listening to our own words.

  • Estrellarse contra una pared en la vida es la mejor forma de quitarnos nuestra armadura de ego y soberbia. A veces, necesitamos un golpe para tomar conciencia con humildad lo que debemos mejorar.
    • Translation: Crashing into a wall in life is the best way to take off our ego and arrogance armor. Sometimes, we need a bump to be humbly conscious about what we need to improve.

The Secret of the Seven Seeds (2006)[edit]

David Fischman (2006) The Secret of the Seven Seeds: A Parable of Leadership and Life
  • The great “Western Disease” is rapidly spreading around the world! The disease is called, “I will be happy when...” When I get that money, when I get that racy car, when I get that new house, when I get that promotion.
  • As you read The Secret of the Seven Seeds, think of the master's first question — Are you happy?'
    If your answer is, 'Not as much as I would like to be,' then you—like Ignacio—may need to consider walking down a new path in life. You may want to look in the mirror and thoughtfully assess your true satisfaction with the person who is looking back at you.

La Alta Rentabilidad de la Felicidad (2010)[edit]

David Fischman (2010) La Alta Rentabilidad de la Felicidad (The High Profitability that comes from Happiness) (2010)
  • Tenemos la tendencia a contar repetidamente nuestra historia de agravio, cuando alguien nos agredió, o alguien fue desleal, o alguien habló mal de nosotros. Es como si contarla y contarla nos diera una sensación de alivio temporal, de ser comprendidos y apreciados, y nos ayuda a reafirmar nuestra posición. Pero no soluciona el problema, y la sensación de bienestar temporal se desvanece y se transforma en rabia, rencor y en emociones negativas
