Article Title: Essential principles to enhance your potential
In this article, the author talks about self-management. She says that meditation is the best self-help tool by which we can understand and experience the Self. She says that we need to meditate on the purpose of our existence, question our origins, which will give us a larger perspective of life. One principle of self-management is to hold a mirror to oneself. Assessing our beliefs and opinions and by becoming objective, will help to centre us. She says that you must not understand oneself on the basis of other people’s opinions and views and get to know yourself by yourself. To attain self-management, one must work to assess one’s strengths and weaknesses and on that basis, develop your competence, will power, imagination, cognition, memory and insight. All ambitions should be adequately supported by competence, only then it has meaning. The author proscribes multi-tasking and asks to let the mind concentrate on only one thing at a time; to practice only one thing at a time, but give it your hundred per cent. A life based on needs and not wants can optimise one’s energy in the right direction and a little introspection will limit our needs reasonably. Finally, all these abilities coupled with good communication skills will enable you to reach out to others with charm and that is what defines the skill of living.
