Children by the millions start their life’s path with no certain destination. Take a small toy engine, wind it up and see it run without a track and it smashes into anything that crosses its path. Most people, early in life start out on life’s journey aimlessly without the right goal. These sleepwalking people never know or understand what parts to play successfully on the stage of life. Start with your childhood to your present life carefully analyzing yourself so you will not be sidetracked in the wrong direction in a contrary search. Once you have found the path best suited for you fortify it with creative monetary making techniques.
Our universe is governed by the law of change so you can not remain still. You must go forwards or backwards. Why walk uphill with tendencies previously formed towards the wrong occupation when your heart’s desire was formed when you were three to eleven years old. Don’t ignore any permanent desire when your innate tendencies lead to business, law, music, medicine or other occupations. If your heart’s desire is not satisfied you are not on the right path and you will never be happy going in a different direction.
For example, if you are a staunch vegetarian you should not go into the butchering of animals or sell meat. It fine to temporarily take little jobs but don’t allow you to stay in such a position. If you have to reconstruct your life remember it is never too late to determine your vocation in life. Don’t spend all your life desiring to do something like being an artist or playing a musical instrument when you are to lazy for the required effort. You need a sustained effort and a strong purpose not to fail in attaining your vocational desires. You must consider karmic prenatal habits before considering a career. This is the reason for failure when a born artist wants to be a businessman with no prior experience. This is why the spiritual man cannot make it as a businessman. If you hypnotize yourself as a failure, no one will be able to convince you that you can be successful. When your will is hypnotized with failure you paralyze yourself and you become lazy. The mind should never succumb to a bleeding untamable heart. Failure and successes are interrelated but success does not always come. Being unhappy struggling is better than being like a like an ostrich with its head buried in the sand. When failure comes learn by it because you are your own creator and you direct your own will. The past is gone forever forget it; the present is here now and the future will come. Now this moment, is the time to start.
When your mind is made up on what vocation to follow, don’t give up even if the ground underneath you gives way. Willpower should be so positively set that you will attach to it until you have success. You must be very careful in choosing your work. If you do not find anything you love doing, keep searching for it. Your vocation must be liked before you can succeed. Do not rush to make up your mind on what path to follow; take your time, but when you have chosen your vocation and you feel what you’re doing is the right thing, stick to your decision. Only if someone shows you that you are absolutely wrong is when you should change your mind.
The ultimate and true success of any business enterprise is solely dependent upon an effective head and competent employees. If you ever own your own business and it becomes successful, be sure if you start expanding that you keep a controlling interest. Be careful when you start to hire new employees as many businesses fail because of unqualified associates. Slick, silken-tongued, prospective employees are easy to find and abundant and could easily cause you ruin. With careful observation, using your own intuition and judgment, you can pick employees with superior qualities. But check their references and be very observant and open-minded with keen vision.
When interviewing a prospective employee the intuitive way of reading character is through the eyes. The contents of a man are reflected in their eyes because they are the direct index of the mind. Be careful of revengeful, crafty, sarcastic, untrustworthy, shifting, or cruel eyes. Any lack of straight-forwardness or hate-projecting eyes along with a sinking feeling in your stomach, beware of that person. Feeling the vibrations in people can help you determine accurate results. How do you sense good or bad vibrations in relation to people? Certain people will vibrate with cruelty, some with temper, and some with nervousness. Other people are spineless and vibrate no will at all. The ones that vibrate kindness you like them at once.
The surest way to read the good or bad vibrations people radiate is by watching your feelings so you can sense the vibratory rate of their mind, body and soul. A sick or ailing person has inharmonious and negative body vibrations and should be rejected. Free yourself from any feelings or attraction for the opposite sex as you must be in a neutral state of mind. Keep a kind, unprejudiced feeling in your heart and the microphone of pure feeling will judge superior than any intelligence in the land.
The transcendental way of interviewing a prospective employee if you are somewhat advanced spiritually is when meditating; in meditation, visualize the eyes of that person and examine the feeling that materializes in your heart. If you sense any fear or hesitation, don’t hire that person. Keep this in mind, if you are receptive and calm during the interview and you penetrate their eyes and study that person your first impression will be correct. If you awaken your creative ability any difficulty can be overcome. The success of your business lies with yourself.
How do you attract intelligent employees who are honest and will remain loyal? Seek out creative ability and most of all trustworthiness with those who will make your business and your ambition their business and their ambition. Make sure you test any new employees as to their honesty with money, as you should never take for granted the integrity of any employee. Make sure you subject your employees who are handling money to temptation to see their reaction. You never know what a dishonest person can do to your business. Try to confidentially find out about the honesty, character and ability of a prospective employee when you check their references. On the other side, and if you are an employee and you hear something detrimental or harmful, stay away from that employer altogether and look for another position.
Never forgive a treacherous employee, but forgive minor mistakes twice or thrice. Remember treachery in an employee will be repeated when you least expect it. Find out through mutual friends if any of your business associates talk against you and if they do, find out their intentions. Discharge any employees who drink too much and dissipates, that show no signs of reform. Never hire anyone who is mentally or physically a lazy person. Taking a friend as a business associate can mean trouble as he would be inclined to be too familiar as he would not take orders from you and would try to capitalize on that friendship. Remember business is business and for warned is for armed.
Worldly people never consider who their real employer is, God. It is He who has employed you under someone else. It is He who promotes you to carry out His work. Therefore, by performing your job duties with the right attitude to please your real employer no matter how important or unimportant your job is you will never fail no matter what direction you choose.
The majority of people want significant or privileged positions, but is unrealistic in their expectations on how to achieve them. The first step to increase the bottom line for your company is to develop the proper qualities by loyal unselfish actions for the betterment of the employer. These unselfish initiatives will automatically propel you to a better position by activating the laws of cause and effect. The biggest to the smallest companies the world over are looking for this type of worker because there is no type of business that can succeed by going it alone. So be full of enthusiasm, honesty, dependability, loyalty, creativity and be ready to swing into action.
All commercial businesses should be spiritualized. If your business does not conform to divine laws it will never last. If your business caters just too human lavishness, and the mighty dollar, unethical or false pretenses, it will certainly be ruined by the execution of the spiritual law of the survival of the virtuous. Any business that hurts the true spiritual well-being of the individual does no real good, and is certain to meet with devastation by the very same nature of its actions. Money-making alone should not be the goal of business. Service should be the true spiritual goal of business. By spiritualizing service in your work rather than having moneymaking your entire goal, you will change the plan for your life and never will you be left out. Profiteering should not be synonymous with business. Eradicate this idea completely from your mind. Businesses blunder into periodic inflation and depressions by operating at the expense of others well-being with their own self-interest. This metaphysical blunder will cause selfish enterprises to fail. From the teachings of SRF.
