Though the Gita is centuries old but the knowledge is still applicable. The battlefield symbolizes our daily lives where we fight our own battles every day. If any day you find your mind engulfed with clutter and negativity just focus on what is said in the Gita. The Gita is the holy book of Hindus with 700 Shlokas across 18 chapters of Mahabharata.
If you find the true essence of Gita, you will then understand the knowledge of yoga which can shake up yours hopelessness and sadness & restores self-confidence. Everyone can reap benefits from the timeless knowledge bestowed in the principles of the Gita. The teachings of the Gita inspire one to find their true self and discover the right path to lead the life to the fullest. Once you find the essence of your true being your mind and soul will illuminate a spark which will make you more confident and pragmatic.
This self-confidence plays a vital role to live a life which is fulfilling, rewarding and effective. Whenever you feel the clouds of confusion are surrounding your mind just use below teachings of the Gita and clear the clutter of the mind.
Find Your Inner Self:
First and foremost you need to find your true inner self. As it is explained in GITA that your real self is not what you perceive with your five senses. The real essence of human being is the pure soul which is free of all five vices of the world. It is neither born nor dies, fearless and pure in every form. Once you are aware of your true self you become more fearless and independent of what others think about you. Your actions become more courageous, focused and unbiased.
Find Your Purpose of Existence:
It is reminded in Gita that it is not correct for a warrior to run away from a war. It has been explained why it is necessary to fight for the righteous and stand for what is right. When you stand and fulfill the purpose of your life, you feel motivated, awakened and purposeful. Once you know that what you do creates a ripple in the universe and it does make a difference no matter how small that contribution is to the world, you feel more confident and assertive.
Follow Your Goals:
You should follow your goals by making in-depth plans and taking concrete actions. You should follow the golden mantra of the Gita, “Karam karo phal ki chinta mat karo” which means you should put all your energy and resources in whatever you do. You should give your best and leave the rest up to him - The supreme soul. It doesn’t matter whether you succeed or achieve that goal timely but you will gain an experience. Just don’t sit and think, get up and get into the action!
So, start working on that project you have been thinking of doing; make that phone call; approach anyone…in short, just do it! This let’s do attitude will boost your morale and confidence to face the hardships of the life.
Every action which you take leaves an impression on your mind, body and soul. So, your actions should be inspired to gain experience. Even if you don’t succeed you will gain an experience and learning. Krishna wanted Arjuna to act and gain experience without worrying about fruit. Similarly, you should also take action and gain experience to move up the ladder of life without worrying about the output. That will help you gain self-confidence and self-realization.
