The Boss vs. The Guru

A boss sticks around ‘I’ and works towards maximizing personal success, but Guru’s ‘I’ comprises of entire mankind and He works towards maximizing collective success.

-  A boss may hold grudges, anger or jealousy in case of adversities, but a guru always forgives and believes in moving on.

-A boss is somebody who tries to extract the maximum out of you to give it to the company or for his personal interest; while a Guru is one who wants to extract the maximum best out of you to give it back to you for your own interest.

-  A boss carries a psyche where he always wants something from you, while a Guru manifests a consciousness where He always wants to give something to you.

-  A boss simply leaves the work on you to be done in a particular manner, while a Guru not only gives directions but also imparts wisdom along with his prudent guidance at every step and makes you carry out the task beyond your capacity and creativity.

- When stuck with the problem, a boss would ask for the solution to be offered, while a Guru would offer the solution for the problem.

- A boss works his way through position power, but a Guru works his way through personal power. 

-While bosses may sit in the offices, a Guru often sits in the hearts of His disciples.
