Richness is connected to responsibility in a way you might not have thought of before.
Think about this:
In a mall who owns more money, the cleaning staff or the sales boy within a shop? Naturally the sales boy earns more than the cleaning staff of the mall. Similarly who owns more money sales boy or supervisor? It is obvious that it is the supervisor who earns more money. Likewise, who owns more money the supervisor or the Manager? Naturally the Manager earns better than the Supervisor. Who earns more money the Manager or the shop owner in the mall, naturally the Shop Owner. Lastly, who earns more: Owner of the shop or owner of the mall. Definitely the owner of the mall.
The higher the designation, the amount of the responsibilities also increase and when the responsibilities increase, richer one becomes. When it comes to the cleaning staff, they only have to manage the cleaning areas of the mall. When it comes to the salesman, he has to overlook the sales similarly supervisor and manager have to cover the management department of the mall. The owner has to oversee all sales to purchasing of his individual shop while the owner of the mall has to run a mall completely from start to end.
This way the higher the authority one holds, the more richer is the person. The amount of responsibilities arises from down to up –
CLEANING STAFF → SALES BOY→ SUPERVISOR → MANAGER → OWNER OF THE SHOP → OWNER OF THE MALL.
As the responsibilities and work grow, richer we become. In the outer world, whoever takes the higher ownership will get the joy of business, salary and satisfaction. Likewise the social worker who takes up responsibilities in a community gets more and more resources and services because he has taken up duties of others and promised them fulfillment of those.
A person who sees his home as his own house is rich; the person who sees and feels all the houses in the community are his is richer than the first person; the person who feels entire country is his, is far richer than the other two; the person who feels that the world is his, is richer than all of the above.
The more we take up responsibilities, not only in the outside world, but equally even in our inside world; the more we are responsible for our own life, the healthier we will be, the happier relationships we will have and even abundance will flow into us.
When we stop complaining or arguing or giving excuses, it gives a thorough indication that we have taken up the responsibilities given to us willingly.
So when we start, we are the happiest people with no arguments or judgments or comparisons that come along with us. The more complaints and excuses we have within, the poorer we feel inside, leading to frustration and aggression. For example; if certain work is given to you, accept it positively and that work, be it any huge responsibility given, will ease around and will be done smoothly. When we complain or compare it with other things our attention is more on that part and less it is on the work part which indirectly affects our output, our efficiency and may even hamper our growth.
When we take the responsibility and the ownership to do it, we are the richest and happiest persons. In the world for instance, when you visit a place outside India, if you are asked where do you stay, naturally you will answer it as ’’I belong to India’. When a person who belongs to India asks you, where do you stay you will naturally say you stay in Maharashtra, similarly if one who stays in Maharashtra asks you, where do you stay you will be specific that you stay in Mumbai and so on.
This is all based on our perception, we all actually belong to the same universe and also same, manner. Our perception is limited. We need to be aware and clear.
Responsibility and Richness go hand in hand. We can become Rich by taking up a larger ownership and by taking up higher and higher Responsibilities that come our way.
We can be the richest person in the world by living in the paradigm of “I am the Parent of the World!”
When we live as:
“I AM THE PARENT OF THE WORLD!”, the WHOLE WORLD BECOMES OURS !”
WE BECOME THE RICHEST PERSON IN THE WORLD.
