Sadhguru and KV Kamath discuss how corporate leaders need to change the way they approach their business, and how India needs to get the fundamentals right, in order to reach full potential.
K V Kamath: I want to maybe stay on Davos for one more round before you move on. You have seen Davos from 2006 till after the crash of 2008, and just before we came here we were having a short chat, you said you addressed depression (Sadhguru Laughs) in the post-2008 period and of course you have seen the euphoria of the preceding years. Euphoria to depression, how do… how do… how do these mood swings happen and how does one balance out one’s views as it were?
Sadhguru: I… I think one reason is, lot of people have not strived for their success, they are successful by chance, that’s why they are euphoric and depressed. If they had crafted their success you would know the mechanics of success, it doesn’t matter what’s happening today, you know where you’re going anyway. Nobody can take that away from you, so people who do not know the mechanics of what they are doing, the fundamentals of what they are doing, by chance because of situational help somebody becomes successful, he is euphoric. He thinks he’s hit… They are hitting a lottery, they are not successful. (Laughs) Hitting a lottery is not success, it’s just chance. So because of that you see too much of these swings and (Laughs) anyway as I was telling you, they asked me to handle this session called ‘Recession and Depression.’ (Laughs) It was 2008, just then recession had moved into the European and American market, all these billionaires were carrying long faces. So I am supposed to spread it a little bit. (Laughter)
K V Kamath: Spread a smile like this.
Sadhguru: So I said, ‘Recession is bad enough, do you need depression on top of it?’ You always dreamed you want to walk the beach, you want to swim, you want to play golf. Okay, this is the time, less work. This is not the end of the world and above all the way we have structured our economic process in the planet is such that if we fail we will be depressed, if we succeed we will be damned. I said I prefer that you are depressed. (Laughter) We… Because our economy is all about ‘more’, not about ‘all’. I think the business leaders, people who have reached a certain level of success should shift their attention from ‘more’ to ‘all’. ‘All’ would naturally be inlusi… inclusiveness. ‘More’ is taking, ‘all’ is an embrace.
