Self- A Key to Success
great work “Kumar Sambhavam” Kavi Kalidas has said that ‘dharma, artha,
karma, mokshanam arogyam mula uttamam’. Means for any achievement of the
individual life to have sound body and sound mind is the first essential need..
It is ‘Sine qua none’.
than these positive attitudes and passionate belief nurtured by meaningful goals
and motivation sustained by untiring perseverance and living compassion can
achieve amazing success and abundant happiness for time eternal through life’s
journey blessed by enlightened wisdom and almighty’s bounty.
Hugo said that ‘there is one thing stronger than all the armies in the
world………. And that is an idea, whose time has come’. So to have correct
and absolute idea one must have proper attitude for the self, which can lead
later on for the cosmic aptitude. Because to manage the self, the longer you
live, more you realize the impact of attitude in life. Because for managing self
it is very essential and important than education, than money, than
circumstances, than failures, than success, than whatever anyone might think,
say or do.
is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill. It can make or break a
company, home or relationship. The remarkable thing is that we have the choice
to create the attitude we have for that day. We cannot change our past, we
cannot change the way people act, and we cannot change the inevitable. The one
thing we can change is the one thing we have control over, and that is our
convinced that life is 10 percent what actually happens to us and 90 percent how
we react to it, say’s Charles Swindoll.. Managing the self is not merely
physical fitness or mental peacefulness. It is your total being, the vision that
you glorify in your mind, the idea that you enthrone in your
Heart………..this is what will build your life! This is what you will become!
man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his
thoughts. Man becomes that of which he thinks! Says the Upanishads. And Buddha
says “mind is everything……….what you think you become”. Meditations of
Marcus Aurelius “your life is what your thoughts make it”. Writings of
Confucius, Mohammed, Aristotle, Socrates and finally from Bible also we found
“As he thinket in his heart, so is he”.
thinking is also essential need for managing the self. You can lament……..
because roses have thorn………..or you can rejoice…………because thorns
have the dynamics of goals are another need. Because no one can predict to what
heights you can soar……even you will not realize it…….. Until you spread
should not forget that the heights by great men reached and kept…… were not
attained by sudden flight, but they while their companion slept…..were toiling
upwards in the night.
So the secret of success why go into something ……just to test the water? Just go into it……..to make waves. Keep happiness and remember that no one can make you unhappy ……..without your consent.
And finally a key to success is to not forget that, “you are the chisel, your are sculptor and you the stone….. life is what you make it.”
