I have finished all my tasks but I am uncertain how the results would turn out. I do not know how should I maintain my composure when a challenging situation arises, I feel I am too much occupied by my personal problems, which are pulling off my creativity and productivity.

Be it happiness or work stress, the mental state is not the consequence of any external factors. It only remains a mental state.

Being spiritual means connecting yourself with your soul, which is also the divine power within ourselves. How can you bring spirituality at workplace?

Blend Discipline with Focus

No achievements are ever made without a focused mindset. A mind that has a goal never loses out its focus regardless of any external factors, whatever they may be. As Sri Krishna in Bhagwat Gita says, “When you find your goal to be moving away, don’t change your goal, change your strategy.” Apply this advice as a thumb rule into your daily working life. There will be times when you will feel yourself let down, unmotivated, unappreciated. Do not consider yourself as a loser. Instead, by bringing discipline to your focus, fight with every negative emotion and situation coming your way like a warrior who never accepts failures. When you know your goal, and follow it in a disciplined manner, nobody can snatch your creativity, which would be coming out straight from your focused mind.

Good Morale

Workplace is the second home of employees who come from different cultures, backgrounds and also incorporate diverse natures and behaviours, which are hard to change. You don’t know them, but you know yourself. Believe in that. Self-belief becomes a magical tool when you need to face diverse people whom you may or may not like at workplace, some of them could be jealous, some may want to bully you, or some simply might be trying to take your kindness for granted. When you know you can’t change the world, all you can do is, maintain a good morale and add a sense of harmony into your mind first. This will reflect in your daily nature and the positive attitude will eventually cut off all the negativity hampering your mind or work. Set your check-list, sign-in and sign-out on time, learn to ignore and visualise results in your life.

However, when you are practising spirituality at workplace, you will soon realise that all your hindrances are self-created due to which things might not have been happening the way you anticipated. Accept changes are inevitable be it in a person or in your life. Instead of appearing confused and depressed, become emotionally strong to accept the changes taking place in and around you at work.
