One should perform karma by Swadharma i.e. own dharma. If you follow your dharma, you shall be redeemed of flaw and advance onwards in your lives. Do not try to follow paradharma i.e. other`s dharma. You may face problems if you take up other`s dharma.
Practice of Swadharma in truthful way gets one`s intellect sharpened and stabilized. Identify your temperaments and selflessly practice the requisite karma. That is precisely the karma you ought to follow. If you adopt Swadharma without selfishness, lot of good will occur to you, by way of fruition of your desires and thoughts and your life will be worthwhile and wholesome one.
There is more happiness in doing one`s own work even without excellence than in doing another`s duty well. Each one must try to understand his psycho-physical make-up and function in accordance with it. . We must play our part sincerely with optimum effort. We might not have all the talents, but what is vital is not whether we are endowed with five talents or only one; but how diligently we have utilized the talent to produce the desired results.
