Work, money and “being human”!

We all work… well…we all have to work to earn money…. to buy us all the things we need to lead a good life! …. But there is one thing we all forget in the process… Something even more important than earning money…. something even more important than buying things and that is “Being human”. We all are aware of the political scenarios at work and how much we all have to struggle to get to where we want to be. We all have to prove our worth….. win trust…. build connections….and get work done.

Is getting work done the only thing in life?

Is the most successful person the one who has completed the maximum chores in his/her life?

Is the happiest person the one who has reached the top of the success ladder?

As we wade through the political storms at work, we have to appreciate, understand and respect the fact that we all are human. We all have our own challenges and struggles. We all have things to take care of and no one has everything.

So…. as you WORK your way up the success ladder… RESPECT your colleagues who are going through struggles in their life… RESPECT your colleagues who are on their own or don’t have any family members….RESPECT your colleagues who are specially abled…. or pregnant or….have some other kind of dependency besides work.

THERE IS SO MUCH THAT GOES INTO “BEING HUMAN”.

And the most important aspect is to respect that “OTHERS ARE ALSO HUMAN”…. they also make mistakes… they also have their struggles…. and some may not even realize what they are going through. They may be struggling inside and never be able to show it to others…

When I was 7 months pregnant…. I had stress at work (due to deliverables and colleagues etc etc)….because of which I had bleeding and some complications….

Thankfully everything got resolved and my baby came out healthy and absolutely fine…. I still wish my colleagues were more supportive at that time… I still wish maybe just maybe….. they were more human…. and understood my circumstances…. I just wish…. I wish I had not taken too much stress and just focused on my health…. I wish…. It was a big wake up call for me too … to focus on my child more than my work.

We are human beings first before money churning machines.

When MONEY didn’t exist…. there was the barter system. People exchanged goods for goods…. The same thing can happen now. We all can revert back to the old systems…. ONLY and ONLY IF we have bigger hearts.

We have to understand that at work, everyone is trying their best…. based on their circumstances.

And if there is ANYTHING MORE IMPORTANT than earning money….. IT IS BEING HUMAN. IT IS BEING a KIND PERSON, someone PEOPLE LOOK UP TO AND RESPECT. Someone people acknowledge as a “NICE” person!

When you work and earn money….. You earn the material things…. the richness, glory and fame.

When you work and also are NICE and earn money…. YOU WIN HEARTS!! YOU WIN TRUST and you win an urge to perform better.

It’s important to RE-ITERATE that…

When you work and earn money….. You earn the material things…. the richness, glory and fame.

When you work and also are NICE and earn money…. YOU WIN HEARTS!! YOU WIN TRUST and you win an urge to perform better.

Keep the political storms aside…. and just do me a favor… Just be a nice person….

As Michael Jackson’s song goes…”Heal the world…Make it a better place… for you and for me and for the entire human race!”….

Let’s keep work aside for a minute… and just focus on being HUMAN…. Rest everything will follow… Trust me….
