There is big in the corporate world these days to manage one's ego. Many times many litigations are being fought in court, which are mere results of ego tussle in the management of corporate Giants. Managing one's ego is a big challenge in Corporate World.
There is one story, which can be an eye-opener for the persons who are controlling the Corporate world. Once upon a time, there was a Master. He always used to keep a skull with him. He always used to speak of non-violence. He was soft spoken person. However, he always used to keep a skull with him, wherever he goes. His disciple was not able to understand this.
His disciple asked this question to him as to why he always keeps a skull with him. The Master replied that one day he was going to take bath in River. On the way to river his legs struck this skull badly. However this skull did not reply any thing.
The Master further explained that this skull must have been a living person one day. This skull must have responded any body that would have laughed at him. This skull must have laughed at anybody in order to boost his ego. This skull must have rebuked somebody getting jealous of something. Now even if I hit this skull with my leg, it is not responding. It is keeping quiet. I keep this skull with me to remind me that one day I will also become like this skull. In case somebody rebukes me, it remind me the futility of my ego. In case somebody laughs at me, it makes me soothe my ego. I am carrying this skull all the time only with a view to calm down my ego.
In corporate world, unexpected results, competition etc. often result in envy, jealously, ego issues etc.
If one remembers that one day they will become like the skull, who will do nothing, laugh at no body etc., he can be more calm and controlled. It is no wonder to say that a peaceful mind always takes a better decision. One who knows to manage his ego, knows to mange himself, his decision and his corporate responsibilities also in a better manner, which is key to success in the corporate world.
