Thus, if one does not develop a positive attitude, it nullifies all other attributes which he is having. Everyone looks for a person with an attitude to provide solutions to problems.
Professional life is not easy. It is rather complex. It has been observed that people are concerned only about their own work i.e. they feel that whatever they do is adequate to get them promotions and wage hike. However, this is far from reality. When Arjuna asked about performance, Krishna explained to him that performance, in reality, is a combination of two factors:
Krishna asserted that despite your best performance if the perception of management is not positive, the physical performance may not yield desired results.
Arjuna was depressed on viewing the attitude of the management of a person who, although being a good performer, was very crafty. Till now, he was successful in getting a favorable attitude of the management. Arjuna was perturbed by the attitude of the management that, despite the man’s crafty activities how it was supporting him. He raised this question to Krishna, who asked Arjuna to sit calmly and understand the concepts of management. In professional life, the approach of management is not straight and linear. Hence, there is no need to become perturbed, but rather watch the happenings with a “Sakshi Bhaava” i.e. as a third person. Be vigilant on the issue and also realize that the management is seemingly emotionless and blind, but in reality understands everything. It is only a matter of time when it will react.
Every day we look for success only and failure deters us mentally, psychologically as well as physically.
Arjuna was perplexed when the people around him were keeping some of the issues pending for long without any solutions, and not helping to evolve a solution. He also observed that at times, the issues get stinking as many other collateral issues start emerging and it became difficult to arrive at a solution.
He further added,” Incubate the problem in such a way /till such time so that a healthy solution comes out.” It is clear from this that any problem needs to be handled carefully and it needs to be settled well within time; otherwise it will be an abortive attempt. Krishna told Arjuna that in corporate world we need to develop people.
