Work as Worship

IN · · Leave a Comment

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or as Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well, that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Work should not be seen as a means of earning bread, as long as you have this kind of attitude you will never give your best, and bring out the potential in you. Another common reason for us not to show our best part at work, is that, we associate ourselves to the position, too much, we consider our post or the job to be of low level, in comparison with others, and don’t think it to be necessary to give our best. We always assume and live in a fantasy world, where in we think that only those, who are in the best of positions, need to show up their talents and potential and wait for our turn for that day to come.

But, guess what if we continue to work with this kind of attitude that day is hard to come, only when you give your best at work, without keeping in mind any other thing or factors, you will prosper in your professional life. There are very few guys in this world, who are lucky enough, to be born as C. E. O,s. Rest all had and continue to have their share of all the ups and downs towards theirs journey up there.

Work gives meaning to our life, and is the major and basic factor that contributes towards our self worth. Never, ever be under the impression that you are working for someone or for some organization; you are working for your own self, to increase your, self worth, to prove your capability, and to bring out the best in you. When you give your best self to the work, you have a great sense of satisfaction, when you solve a problem at your work place and every one compliments you for your worth, how do you feel? On cloud nine!

That is all what work is about, dear friend, so put on that attitude and every day, every minute, at your work place, and give out your best. When you show that kind of attitude, at work, your ‘work becomes worship.’
