Develop competence in areas that you think you are not good at
The earlier we develop and prove our competence, the better it is!
klaibyaṃ mā sma gamaḥ pārtha naitat tvayy upapadyate |
kṣudraṃ hṛdayadaurbalyaṃ tyaktvottiṣṭha paraṃtapa ||
क्लैब्यं मा स्मगमः पार्थः नैतत्वय्युपपद्यते |
क्षुद्रं हृदयदौर्बल्यं त्यक्त्वोत्तिष्ठ परन्तप |
O Partha (Arjuna), don’t yield to unmanliness; this does not befit you. Give up this emotional weakness, and rise up O Parantapa (Arjuna) (Chapter 2, Shloka 3)
At work we sometimes question ourselves on why situations around us are not as we desire them to be. At times our superiors have unreasonable demands in terms of delivery and quality of work.
It is essential for us to be able to understand that some situations are beyond our control and we just need to figure out a way to focus on our tasks and move in a direction that’s beneficial for both personal and professional growth.
