Career philosophy. Began part 2

of the Pit in the Chinese style

Chinese whose economic success especially impresses the Russian person, speak:“ Do not do to people of what you do not wish yourself, and then in the state and a family to you will not feel hostility“. So the market Chinese, semiliterate, not so similar to the westernized careerist, easily bypasses all in career, and business on - Chinese is obviously successful.

to China traditionalism, idealization of the past, a thinking pragmatism, accurate orientation to usefulness and applicability of inventions in practical life, despotic structure of the power - and the society divided into a thin layer of elite officials and huge mass of the uneducated majority are inherent in

. Chinese are always turned to problems of the real world, and the posyustoronny, not religious relation fortunately and to success is inherent in them: they can achieve only here, on Earth, and during lifetime. As the old Chinese saying “Tells life - always well, death - it is always bad“. So on these beliefs it is possible to be realized, only together and following experience of ancestors. There is a doctrine about three sources of the Chinese culture - Confucianism, Taoism and the Buddhism, and, despite the recent communistic past of Celestial Empire, nobody cancelled this triad. For example, Mao openly recognized himself as the Confucian.

we Will consider the doctrine which found the most active application out of China - Confucianism - from this point of view karyerostroitelstvo and achievements of success. This first of all ethical doctrine (always to follow the path of duty, to respect antiquity, not to tell superfluous), contains many provisions concerning area of management and policy, obviously not philosophical from the point of view of the western person. Chinese consider management of the high sphere of culture, business of moral intellectuals and way to check human qualities. If for us inner meaning of political activity in morality, then for them moral preparation conducts the person to the main and most worthy goal - a management skill.

Criterion of success of the person in China - in its ability to operate the and especially others lives. According to Confucius, “to operate - means to do right thing“.

the Confucian morality does not stir

political success, and is its necessary basis. Therefore, for example, the Japanese megacorporations organized according to the principle “A debt above all“ won the world market, and the ritual cult is the cornerstone of the glorified discipline of the Korean workers.


the Principles of Confucianism - ritual, a debt, trust - are successfully applied today in Asia. Ancient samples and values help development forward, to the better future because their purpose - general prosperity, the strong state and rich society. Confucianism assumes and approves success achieved in only socially justified ways without opposing personal achievements or general welfare. In particular, Xiao`s principle speaks about honoring of seniors: the son has to esteem the father, the younger brother - to act for the benefit of the elder brother, the citizen has to be selflessly devoted to the sovereign. All steps of a public ladder are ritually designated, communication is filled with ceremonies and rules.

Transition to the following step with guarantee gives to

more respect and attention from subordinate. On the basis of this ideology more than one billion inhabitants of the planet are ready to refuse personal advance if it harms interests of corporation and to implicitly follow the path of duty, and decisions of the administration to perceive as something natural. They at the same time want success not less ours, but are ready to reach it only together and from approval of tradition.

Thanks to Xiao`s principle east workers extremely seldom participate in intrigues against the management, and all conflicts happen among workers of one level.

the Confucian morals teach

that only the morality conducts to success which will be accepted by society without irritation. Therefore the ethical ideal of Confucians is a virtuous person who is educated, unselfish and always follows the path of duty. Education and the power are connected in this outlook indissolubly therefore in the ancient time the Chinese officials for receiving a position took examinations in versification and music. Confucians consider what capable to connect words in the beautiful ordered whole can operate others, and the expert on history in management will avoid mistakes of predecessors. Musically competent official is considered the specialist in harmonization of the relations, adjusting community of subordinates on tones and frets as the difficult tool.

Business on - Indian: how to be successful and not to spoil a karma

Absolutely other option of career strategy we meet in other very ancient and traditional east civilization - India.

the mysticism and philosophical speculation are associated With this country at Europeans that is absolutely fair. Thirst of the western people for mysterious India is obviously not casual.

If to try to generalize as much as possible basic provisions of this difficult culture, then we will receive approximately such list of theses:

the World is uniform and invariable

, in it the law of justice - the Dharma works.

Spirit - steadier and important essence, than a body; it should pay more attention, to be improved in the religious relation to life.

Everything is subordinated by

to laws of cause and effect therefore it is necessary to seek not to make bad acts, that is to observe the law of the Karma - requital for acts as here, and in the following embodiments.

the World - result of initial sacrifice therefore the person has to be able to endow momentary success for the sake of eternity, and self-restriction is a way to freedom.

how the person passes stages of the course of life, its following birth and the place in hierarchy of living beings so the success is a requital for following to destiny depends.

Three ways lead

to perfection - a way of thought, a way of love and the most widespread - a way of action so everyday routine - too a way to God.

Europeans always admired

so high spirituality, but the feeling of cultural superiority lying in the basis of colonial ideology forced them to see the backward traditional outlook deprived of concepts about the personal growth and social development in India. The historical reality disproved this relation when Hindus overthrew British and began to develop perfectly, steadily being in the lead in the Asian world. So they shook self-confident belief of conquerors that only Europe is capable to go forward and to change the world.

the Old Hindu principle “Destiny is not chosen, and live“ today it is still actual. Such passivity concerning destiny not only quite suits Hindus, but also helps to reach stability and prosperity. So, nearly 4% of the world market of high technologies are nowadays occupied by the Indian industry. Here the biggest on number middle class - about 300 million people. Modern Hindus walk in jeans and speak on the cheapest digital communication in east hemisphere, but their thinking and values remained invariable. This nation demonstrated that to success conduct not only the western ways.

If for western including for Russian, the person the key to success is freedom to choose the purposes and means, then Hindus think differently. For them freedom - in an opportunity to carry out the debt, but not to express will and to choose something. The person going counter to destiny for them just the fool. The requital which for the Indian consciousness is identical to success is possible only in future life and has spiritual, non-material character. The success is measured not by money. As an external sign of high-quality accommodation of destiny it is possible to consider public respect, honor and approval. The birth in poverty is a reality which should not be changed, but also the beggar can be happy and successful - here such Indian paradox.

Any situation is temporary

, and in the following embodiment the good, “successful“ beggar will be rewarded, and the bad, not adopting law of destiny bramin will be punished and will regenerate in a bad body. In the Indian culture the game moment, and concept of game is very strong - “lila“ it is consecrated with religious tradition.

Original reality one, but it is hidden by an illusion cover - Mailly. We live in this motley and deceptive world, participating in game by in advance established rules. The happy successful person - the good player. Contrary to popular representation of Europeans, Hindus are not lazy at all and are not passive, just they watch at work and success a little from above, from the point of view of eternity. It is lucky only the people able to look so at business, they consider. Business and career - an award for honest participation in game of life, they are important, but not samotsenna. The prime target - is religious, all this the same requital.


and the rich man, the person becomes evident confirmation of operation of the law of justice of the Dharma - if he was lucky now, to me will carry then, and finally all are equal. The main thing at such relation to career development - not to break purity of passing of a course of life, not to spoil a karma.

the Game relation to business is well noticeable

in the relation to the competition: if interests of the Hindu and his colleague on business face, he will try all ritual forms of resolution of conflict, will even go to the temple and is unmalicious will swear with the competitor. And only if traditional means does not work, real competitive fight begins, and the loser is consoled not in revenge, but hope for remuneration in the long-term future. Career on - Indian is based slowly, without vanity. The fussy person confuses priorities - for him important external, alluvial. So not to achieve success. The real Indian careerist will better miss an opportunity to make career jump if it demands vanity. He will wait hour - peak of collision of small interests and will declare itself when its understanding destinies and external circumstances develop in a successful game combination.

to the Pit should be played as a chess set (the Indian invention, by the way) - thoughtfully and precisely, and always to remember that it is only game. Only forward smooth career of the person who is living future and really estimating the opportunities in game of the present moment can be successful.

Such strategy carries away the person who was disappointed in business on - western, but danger of the choice of the Indian version of a karyerostroitelstvo is obvious - if you are deprived of game qualities and hardly can delay occurrence of happiness to the following lives, then it will be difficult to follow ancient wisdom of India. However some of its elements nevertheless are quite applicable for the solution of problems of creation of career: for example, certainly to count productive ability the opponent`s courses - the competitor in the manner of a game of chess, ability to distract from the concrete moment and to tower over a situation.

How to build career between the East and the West

Ancient Greek, medieval, Protestant and American, Chinese and Indian culture successfully cope with a platform role for successful strategy of a karyerostroitelstvo. Everyone does it in own way, it is possible to learn from everyone.

the Western idea of success, conscious and internally accepted by the Russian person, can become his way of life, but not a way hold on to pension. The culture of the East can teach harmony and the accounting of a spiritual context at decision-making. The main thing that unites various approaches, effectively and harmoniously supporting the person presently, is a combination of external problems of career to its spiritual basis, orientation to the work reflecting a natural way of life of the specific person. In it the key to a fatigue problem from career and impossibility to cease to do it, seemingly, lies.

the Russian builders a pit can rely on Protestant ethics and east philosophy, however only acceptance of a personal responsibility for the future in real domestic conditions will help us to use dangers and peripetias of modern life as an opportunity to come to a new cultural and economic level of development.
