Robin sharma uvacha and Rayaprolu interprets : Self Mastery

new-pic1

People have been speaking from several years about the importance of having goals in life and the methods to achieve the goals. First of all the million dollar question is “Why should any one have a goal? Is it possible for all to attain the goals? Is’nt it unfair that ONLY some people have a better life style, have more success, command respect whereas others don’t get the things they deserve. Why is that only some people are SUCCESSFUL?

Robin Sharma Uvacha ( From the book  “The Monk who sold Ferrari”):

“Success on the outside begins with success on the inside. If you really want to improve your outerworld, whether this means your health, your relationships or your finances, you must first improve your inner world. The most effective way to do this is through the practice of continous self improvement. Self Mastery is the DNA of life mastery.”

Ain’t this thought about the Success Inside and Success Outside interesting.  What I understand from the above concept is  :

  • FIRST WE NEED TO RESPECT OURSELF BEFORE EXPECTING THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO RESPECT US
  • FIRST WE NEED TO LOVE/ADMIRE US BEFORE WE EXPECT OTHERS TO LOVE/ADMIRE US
  • FIRST WE NEED TO MAKE CHANGES IN US BEFORE WE EXPECT THE WORLD TO CHANGE FOR US

So, to do all these we need to have goals in life and a systematic method to achieve those . Don’t you agree with me on this :). In this context I cannot resist quoting this from Chapter Six of Bhagavad Gita “One   should   lift   oneself   by   one’s   own efforts   and   should   not   degrade   oneself;   for one’s   own   self   is   one’s   friend,   and   one’s  own   self   is   one’s   enemy”.

Cheers,

  2. Well written!

    If people do not have an initial respect for themselves, that lack of respect will hamper them eventually in their pursuits.

  3. well !. people should first realize there existence first. as Arjuna understand his existence before the war.. we should realize what we are. and what is our karma.
