The other day, my mom shared a powerful and thought-provoking quote, that she had just read.
It’s easier to be Krishna, than to be Arjun !!
And she went on to explain, that being Krishna requires one to look inside and discover the highest qualities that each of us are bestowed with.
But to be an Arjun, one needs to be full of faith.
Infact have so much faith and trust, that you see a Guru in your friend, who then becomes the Krishna in your life.
Its a very powerful thought.
To be able to trust someone or something so much, must infact be very liberating.
Coz then you surrender all your worries, doubts and fears.
I guess that’s why our ancient traditions laid so much importance on the role of a Guru.
And its definitely true in our corporate lives too.
We all need mentors.
And for mentors to be effective, one has to let go of all fears, doubts and insecurities and share what we truly feel.
Open up to our mentors.
And most importantly, surrender.
