"Emperors and sages in ancient China have used the Sage Art of War known as Qi Men Dun Jia as a tactical 'weapon' to outwit enemies and win wars. In the military strategy context, Qi Men Dun Jia is used to identify the right place and time to place their generals and armies to attack the enemy. In today's business world, business leaders and investors can rely on it to outwit and prevail over their competitors in the global business arena." - Datuk Joey Yap

The saying "Every Man for Himself" sounds truer today than ever before. Some people would equate business matters to war, or something of similar proportion.

No matter how you view it, the business environment and office hierarchy have become the individual's battleground to survive and get ahead.

To address this life equation, Datuk Joey Yap conducted a one-day seminar entitled: 'Go Forth and Conquer: The Sage Art of War', at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Sunday.

The mid-year event presented by Yap proved to be beneficial and inspiring, and attracted about 3000 participants.

Yap said: "Life is about self-reflection and self-awareness which equates to self-lessons. Moments of victory, success, mistakes and regrets may occur in a person's daily lives but if they do not assess these questions of why, when, how, what, where and who - he or she may never be able to find out where it went right, or wrong in the first place."

The one-day seminar focused on the teaching of Sun Tzu's Art of War - an influential ancient Chinese book on military strategy, and was aimed at empowering business owners, management-level executives, young professionals, investors, property buyers and homeowners with a clear understanding of Qi Men Dun Jia, to increase their business and investment outcomes, and improve their lives.

Legend has it that Sun Tzu, the author of The Art of War, came to prominence after demonstrating his skills as a general by training the King's concubines on the importance of obeying orders, with dire consequences when commands were not followed.

"Through the Art of War, Sun Tzu transformed the way we understand Chinese war history and culture, and some of the teachings and theories are still relevant today as it was back then.

"The core principles of this masterpiece helped inspire and influence the actions and decision of market leaders and professionals everywhere. It is also a favourite study by entrepreneurs who use the guidance to control markets.

"This is the testament to the enduring power of The Art of War and the legacy of Sun Tzu himself," added Yap.

Today, The Art of War is widely regarded in Asian and Western culture as one of the most famous texts in the worlds, inspired leaders like Napolean and Mao Zedong. It has also been translated into different languages with new commentaries and perspectives.

  1. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
  2. - As soon as a person knows himself or herself, they will be able to conquer whatever obstacles that may come their ways.

  3. He who plans carefully will be in far better position compared to he who is careless or barely plans at all.
  4. - A military operation emphasises on the use of deception. This means that even if you are competent, appear to be incompetent. Even if you are effective, appear ineffective.

  5. The supreme Art of War is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
  6. - For one to win 100 victories in 100 battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skills.

  7. Victorious generals win first and then go to war, while defeated generals go to war first and then seek to win.
  8. - The opportunity to secure our victory lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.

  9. Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.
  10. - All men can see these tactics when one conquers, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory evolved.

Qi Men Dun Jia

The modern working world is more competitive than ever. In uncertain financial times, one would have to work hard to maintain his or her position, and ever harder to move forward.

Sun Tzu said one would need to take advantage of prevailing circumstances and golden moments to drive his or her plans forward so they cannot fail.

Yap explained: "Qi Men is essentially the metaphysic of war craft. Its use during Chinese military history was so prolific that it was treated as a state secret until the end of the Qing Dynasty.

"Of all ancient Chinese methods of divination sciences practice in the world today. Qi Men Dun Jia is perhaps the most subtle and precise.

"It functions to support a person's painstaking research and strategy development, to help one choose the exact time and place to put the plans in motion, ensuring success in a wide range of endeavours."

Yap said the Sage Art of War seminar aimed to give participants a clear understanding of Qi Men Dun Jia and how to use it for their advantage.

"The key to knowing this is to find out how different traits, personalities and characteristics dictate a person's life. This includes how individuals view the world and cultivate personal relationship with others and themselves.

"It is only through knowing these attributes that a person is able to conquer the battles that life has in store for him or her," he added.

Befittingly, the BaZi pillars are an integral component in an individual's BaZi Chart that helps one access these key points.

"An individual's BaZi pillar will undoubtedly help him realise what he needs to be aware of in the never ending quest of finding himself.

"Of course, it works both ways, and this would also apply to a person's understanding of the behaviours of others, including their respective opponents,

"Make this seminar your own exclusive learning experience to gain an unfair advantage in life, all your life!" added Yap.
