The feeling of why me, and why I am in this world. These are the questions which we ask ourselves when we are too frustrated or deeply into some situation. The same was happening to arjuna when he was on the battlefield facing his own blood. When we become too frustrated we start blaming lord, and his decisions of bringing us to the situation. We at the moment forget one thing that whatever situation we are in is a part of the things which the ultimate lord has thought for us. He wants us to be instruments for so many big decisions which he has taken. Our own mind or brain is the cause of our freedom and also for our bondage with something. Krishna wanted to communicate this very clearly to the arjuna that there is nothing right or wrong here in the battlefield. Do your job sincerely and with positive attitude of winning the battle, rest leave it to me. I will decide what was wrong and what was right. Each and everyone of us has to just progress and that too in the direction of our goals, which we have decided for ourselves. It is he who makes us decide the goals and then he also makes us choose the path to reach those goals, as described in Gita Krishna is also the lard of our senses. So, if he is controlling where we have to go and how we have to go, we are just mere passengers, who have to pay the price of the ticket and have to share our ups and downs of the road. He will definitely take us to the destination which he has decided, but if we refuse in between or runaway from the road, or we do not give our best in what the lord has decided for us to do, definitely the destination will not be which was decided for us. Success says this very clearly, I am achievable only through hard work and belief that I am yours. The situation which was in front of the Arjuna happens to everybody in life, when we are so disappointed that we want to leave everything and runaway from this world. At that moment those who just take that extra effort and go on with the situation they reach the top of the world and those who refuse from that point or leave there gandivs and refuse to fight, only live a mediocre or marginal life, which is of no achievement and success. The difference in success and failure is just those two extra steps where we think every thing is over. Picture abhi baki hai mere dost.


The second part of the blog, I will start from again referring to the same great book which has been inspiration for millions over decades. In the start of the famous mahabhart battle, lord Krishna was referred to as the owner of senses. We human beings are controlled by our senses, so in other words when Krishna says that I control everything in the lives of humans and all the lively bodies, he meant that he is the owner of the senses and we perform based upon the information supplied by our senses. We in our day to day life do so many things which are told to us by our senses. We sometimes according to the situations put them right or wrong. Although there is nothing called wrong. While I was reading and learning this science called NLP, it was told to us that we base our decisions on the bases of the information provided to us by the sense and then we choose the best possible alternative at that moment. Our brain or the controller of the things for us will never let us do anything which is not right for us at any moment. So even if we kill someone or somebody jumps from a building top at that moment for that person the decision is the best possible alternative which can be taken in that situation. Now, if that is the case Krishna is always with us in terms that he is always controlling our senses. The thing which is told phal ki icha mat kar, reveals this thing that he controls our decisions in situations so the ultimate result will come out of the decisions which we take, and the decisions are being controlled by the supreme authority.

In west people go by logics, so they have created this science called NLP and have given it a scientific approach that our sense govern our decision making power, and if learn to control the senses we can control our destiny. Now this has been told in Gita thousands of years back, which we are taking back from the west in terms of some techniques and scientifically proven methods. We definitely are controllers of our destiny and the results we will get definitely come from the actions we take. I myself was very fascinated by the world of NLP as it has some great techniques and ways to control our lives. As I started reading this guide, or I would the truth of life called gita, I came to know that everything which has been told to us by the way of NLP has been with us since a long time.

We hardly practice those things in our lives that is the reason we are not able to get the success we are capable of achieving. Every individual in this world has some part or role to play and according to the actions the individual takes in situations the destiny and the success is defined. We sometimes fail to understand the actual message our senses are supplying to us which leads to a bad decision making, or not choosing the best alternative available to us. No one in this world is a looser, yes people are definitely bad decision makers. When there is a failure (Feedback) we should learn one thing out of it and that is how to take the right decision next time. Every so called failure is just a bad decision at any given situation. If someone takes the lesson they become great achievers and those who do not take the lesson keep on coming back to the same thing all over again, reason being till the time we do not learn from the bad decision, the supreme authority will keep on bringing us to the same situation.


As the famous saying for the gita goes Karam kar phal ki icha mat kar. You should do the work and never think about the result which you will be getting out of it. As if you start speculating the result, you might miss out of minute details of carrying out the work itself. As the gita starts, and the forces are in front of each other duryodhana reassures himself and his teacher dronoacharya by comparing the two armies. He feels very confident about this thing that he has great fighters with him, and by comparing the strengths on paper his army is much better compared to the pandvas. Still he lost the battle, because its not about what quality of people you have with you, it is about what is the cause and objective for which they are with you. If the objective is collective, the team with new or less experienced people can also with the battle at the end, just because of the objective for which they are fighting.

It goes very well with the marketplace and organizations. It is not how qualified your staff is, or how much experience they have. If they are not motivated enough towards the common objective of achieving the best for the organization, they might not be of any use. A famous saying is a motivated worker at the lower ladder can help you overcome biggest challenges in the marketplace. Its not that you should not keep the ultimate objective in your mind. Gita says never be assured of the result and always strive to do your best in order to achieve it. If the effort is sincere the outcome will always be your side. The kings or the soldiers do not matter in the game of chess as in the end both go into the same box. It can be a soldier also in front of the king. The value of everyone moving in one direction needs to be understood so as to improve the probability of the organization achieving result every single time. If the sense of belongingness is there among the employees there is hardly any external force which can stop the organization for achieving any targets.
