the only truth I know is my own experience

Yogis are most desirable candidates for jobs July 25, 2012

Meditation makes you more balanced and joyous. People love to be around happy people, and will understandably enjoy your company. An inner magnetism will start to be expressed, and somehow, you may not know why, but you will find almost everyone eager to work with, or for you. 

Interestingly in the job world you become a desirable candidate for any recruiter because of your charisma and dynamism. The reason behind this is that regular meditations increase your energy level and you yourself will start emitting vibrations, or essentially everything positive. People can feel it and they actually love it, even if they do not understand the source of it.

This is what I’ve learned from several recent recruitment experiences: among many candidates people who meditated were selected as the best, although the recruiter or client knew nothing about the yogic background of a job candidate.

People practicing yoga and meditation are more luckily to be selected for a job.

So the new career rule says: MEDITATE and you will be successful!

Why I believe every woman should gain some kindergarten teacher experience June 10, 2012

This is a topic I wanted to cover long ago. However I waited until I got my own child and my feelings and beliefs were confrimed.

Yes, I believe that every woman should gain some working experience as a kindergarten teacher. This is a strong statement and I am sure many people would not only be surprised but also react negative to it. Let me give my arguments based on my personal experience and observations.

About 10 years back I was lucky enough to work as a kindergarten teacher in one international school (children 4-6), which I still consider the most outstanding and enriching experience in my career  – even though since last 6 years I hold managerial positions and now heading towards a company director. And who knows, may be it was that childcare experience which in fact boosted my career?

Throughout a history when people used to have big families women /girls have helped in the household and in the childcare for their own sisters and brothers. These days are gone in the civilized society. Today thanks to the epidemic of adult infantilism, more and more grown-ups consider having children a burden. There are various reasons for that child-phobia but one of the reasons is simply lack of experience.

I believe it is a great experience to work with a group of children (not one or two!) for several reasons:

1. Being in charge of  at least 10 children is the best ATTENTION training you can ever get. Small children, especially before age of 6 are extremely active and curious, they easily spread around, everyone busy with his/her own stuff. But surprise, surprise — at some point you will understand that it is easier to manage 10 children than one! 🙂 (more…)

 

If you want to be successful – work hard and you will be. If you don`t want – you will be even more successful! August 11, 2008

Our success-oriented society is hard to withstand. Hardly anyone wants to be a looser. But what factors bring success – hard work? luck? connections? all of them together? or it is something else?

In the yogic life there is a concept of “detachment”- and this is something which opposes the modern logic. Detachment means ” not to desire” something, just go with the flow…Not to persist on something, not to try to reach anything… just do whatever the life/God/destiny wants you to do…

People who know me distantly are all sure I am a typical career-woman (! :)) and therefore successful. People who know me closer understand, that it is not the case. I never wanted any success, because it seems so funny to me. But surprisingly, I keep getting interesting offers, positions, awards, rewards, etc….I dont really care, I just love to do what I am doing. And the success accompanies me on its own. That makes me smile 🙂 (more…)
