In order to be peaceful, we have to learn not to expect from others. But in day-to-day life, at the office or at home, different people are supposed to do different things. If they don’t do it, then problems arise. Everyone has to do his or her job.

Please guide us on this.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

If someone does not do the job that he or she is supposed to do, then we need to tell them to do it. We need to exercise our authority there.

If there are lazy people who don’t do their work, we cannot sit quiet. We need to make them aware of their duty.

If we have craving or aversion towards them then we cannot bring awareness in them. It will only make us angry.
