Quest – In my office there is a lot of gossip happening. I don’t want to be a part of it. But, if I don’t participate I feel like I won’t be successful with my boss. What should I do?
Avatar Answers –
Immediately change your job. Even if you are successful with this boss by becoming part of the gossip, you will be a failure in the life. Don’t do this compromising.
If you compromise and become part of that gossip group, you may be successful with your boss, but you will be a failure in your life.
In your life itself, you will be a failure. Better change the job.
Your Boss is Not Worthy of You
This gossip at work place. One day the boss was telling the same joke and the whole team was laughing as usual. Only one person did not laugh.
Boss asked, “what happened? you did not laugh for my joke?”. He said, “no, I found another job”.
That is the exact situation you are in. Understand, if you have to do gossiping or becoming part of a gossip to be successful with your boss, I think your boss is not worthy of you.
Have a Boss who Adds More than Just Money
Understand, make a clear decision. Just because he has some money to pay you, he should not be boss for you. He should have little charisma also to add to your life. He can add only money to your life, he should not be your boss. He should have little charisma also to add to your life along with money. Only then he has the right to be boss for you.
All the fellows who can pay salary to you should not be boss for you. Then your life has nothing other than money? No.
Be with a boss who can add charisma to you, who can add many other dimensions to you; something more than money to add to you.
You have a taste, you have a culture, you have possibilities, you have options, you have your ‘yes-es’ and you have your ‘no-s’ in your life. So I tell you, if you are with a boss who can add only money to you, nothing else, I tell you, your life will become cheap, too cheap.
Be with a boss who can add charisma to you, who can add many other dimensions to you; who has something other than money, something more than money to add to you.
If you have to become a part of a gossip team to be successful with your boss, I cannot understand. There are some Gurus who just need 2-3 people, and they go on sitting and talking the whole day. Nothing else is required. They just sit and go on telling some stories and people have to sit and listen.
If you have to become part of the gossip group to be successful with your boss I think you are in wrong place.
Immediately drop this work place, and don’t compromise your life.
