A gentleman followed to Thailand to worship to Elephant God for his career and wealth.
When we were there, I asked him, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for? "
The man asked, " Teacher, is there any way to improve my career ? I have tried all ways and means but to no avail. What should I do ? "
Elephant God said, " You did not do it in the right manner, It may seem to you that you have made changes. But in actual fact, you are just going in circles. You did not change your habits, you did not change the manner that you do things and you did not change your mentality. They are always the same old ways, so how do you expect to see results ? "
The man said, " How can it be ? I have tried many new ways and also tried other people's method. But it still doesn't work. "
Elephant God said, " It's only on the surface that you have been trying to make changes. But who is the person carrying out these changes? It's you right. You will not derive any results from your changes if you are not going to change that old mentality of yours.
The man nodded his head and said, " I understand, I will try and reflect about it to see how I can change my ways.
It is particularly frightening if you were to conform to the old rules and methods all the time. Even technology is constantly being reviewed for new changes. Every year, we have new phones coming out, from 3G to 4G and also new apps. This is because they have to improve the technology all the time to enhance performance and efficiency. We will be outdated if we do not keep in pace with the society and the new technological advances.
