Vijay Bhaskaran : How to choose the right direction in between a mid career change ?
Sri Joydip: Lord Krishna mentions in Bhagvad Gita about “Swadharma” . Swadharma is a important principles according to him , to carry out action according one own inherent nature . This is how one should make his career choices . Swadharma can help one to take important direction in one’s career . Success is the career requires you to bear with maximum number of failure . It is only when you do something you love to do , as it is based on your swadharma ,you can bear this failure and become more competent . If you swadharma is of painter don’t get into stock market , just because stock analyst offers your more money and opportunity . Lord Krishna it is better to die performing to die performing swadharma , then to live doing paradharma. Reflect on your inherent nature , that is the kind of work which comes to you naturally and you have some natural talent into it , and at the same time you love it . After this reflection , you would be choose the right direction between a career change .
Remember : If you choose a career which not according to swadharma , you might have to return back to a career which is according to your swadharam , that would mean a lapse of time , inbetween . Rather losing 4 years , loose 4 days to reflect and find out what is your swadharma and what would be the right career choice for it .
Vijay Bhaskaran : How to convince people and get them in your way of thinking ?
Lord Krishna in Bhagvad Gita , takes Arjuna into his way of thinking . While doing so , he follows some principle which can used by any managers to take people in his way of thinking as a leader does.
1.In the whole first chapter of Bhagvad Gita ,Krishna listen to Arjuna and never speaks a word . This is the first skill you require to listen other , before you try to express your thinking .
2.On the whole Bhagvad Gita , even knowing that Arjuna was always falling short of the understanding of a deep complex philosophy , he never stopped praising Arjuna for whatever he has understood . Lord Krishna often before any important discourse or philosophical points showered with praise to Arjuna to make his mind receptive to Lord Krishna way of thinking .
3.However at certain times , he found that Arjuna mindset requires a change and that is the time when to criticized him indirectly.
4. At every chapter of Bhagvad Gita ,Lord Krishna is able to generate
an eager want in the mind of Arjuna to listen the next important
discourses . He had a perfect understanding of Arjuna’s emotional
state and delivered a knowledge according to the growing maturity
Of his mind.
5.In all chapters Lord Krishna transformed a man,who is about to run away from a battle , due to his emotional despondency and who had his own
definition of ethics and spirituality which are most of the times
confusing to a man of strong character , ready to take the
challenges of life and win the battle, just by power of his thought .
