Personal Mastery

29 Jul

Personal mastery is about approaching life from a different perspective.  Sometimes people

would refer to it as a journey towards continuous improvement.  Personal  mastery is guided

with key principles like vision, personal purpose, creative tension, commitment to truth and

understanding the subconscious mind.

One of the most important fundamental aspects of personal mastery is personal vision.

Personal mastery when combined with personal vision can create a framework or guiding

philosophy on how you can operate and live your life.  Some people would say that personal

vision serves as a guide that would keep you on track.

Followers of personal mastery see that there are great opportunities to improve their

growth.  Followers recognize that there are many avenues for growth and opportunities like

books, tapes, lectures and school courses.  People also benefit from organizations
in their quest for personal mastery.

Personal mastery is about loving yourself and expressing your gifts to its fullest.  Some

would think that personal mastery is controlling and limiting one self, but actually it is

about understanding your personality.  To control or overcome some habits, it would be

important to identify how and why those habits arise.  The more you suppress things, the

more you would have difficulty in conquering and overcoming it.

Personal mastery is self-discipline.  It is about taking responsibility for the direction

that your life is going to take.  You would slowly realize that you can do anything with the

aide of your skills and talents.  Discipline would clarify and deepen your perspective in

life.  Those who quest for personal mastery would develop patience and see life objectively.

Personal mastery can actually help you become successful in life.  You can say that you have

developed personal mastery if you are starting to fully understand your strengths, talents

and your purpose in life.  Personal mastery enables you to be inspired, energized and happy

with your life. You start to show a sense of commitment in changing on how people perceive

life and the world.  The ultimate thing about personal mastery is that you would always feel

that you are guided and supported by God.

It is also important for a person who is in quest for personal mastery to develop integrity,

humility, justice and industry.  Actually, these are “rules” on how we could conduct

ourselves professionally, socially and spiritually.

Peter Senge said that attaining personal mastery has no shortcuts or no “quick fixes.”

Sometimes it would take a lifetime for personal mastery to be attained.  Personal mastery

detaches a person from self-interest or selfishness and encourage people towards providing

care and service to other people.  Also individuals who follow personal mastery see the

connections in their surroundings and perceive everything as a whole.

Proactive behaviour is also something that personal mastery helps you to develop.  Reactive

behaviour like thinking beforehand hand that you cannot do things is dealt with when

developing personal mastery.  Actions and service that you provide are based on how you can

creatively maximize your skills.

To summarize it, personal mastery guides you to develop being aware with your beliefs,

attitudes and behaviour impacts.  It also enables you to accept yourself and be responsible

with your own action, attitude, and thought.

Experts would say that personal mastery could be truly gained by living purposefully and by

living with integrity.  Living purposefully would include showing talents, gifts and

strengths to achieve goals and be successful.  Living with integrity is by integrating your

ideals, standards and behaviour.
