Now that we know the meaning of self-mastery, we can discuss the strategies for self mastery. You will need your self-mastery skills in this present dispensation. This is because the world is full of emotions, fears, and a lot of depression.
Everyone has self-mastering skills that remain undeveloped in him. We learn how to eat and about many other things, so our self-mastering skills can also be learnt.
You will have to learn ways that will help you to stay calm in the most comfortable ways possible. Some people have found that walking will help them to get a hold of things in a different outlook.
You will need to manage your emotions. Your emotions are any of the feelings of joy, sorrow, fear, hate, love, etc. You should learn how to manganese this. It can be done if you are willing to put some seriousness into it.
Again to manage yourself well, check yourself and your thoughts. Sometimes people are able to do something about this just by being able to find within themselves the solution to what they are looking for.
You can equally turn to a number of places for help. You might decide to go and check out the internet. In the internet there are many sites that might be able to help you in all of these areas. I am developing a site at www.excitingall.net.ng where people can learn about self-development.
Many sites are available where you can learn similar things. Make sure you read and figure out what they have to offer you. The internet is a great way to get help. If you are not able to get on the internet in your home then maybe you can turn to your place of work. There are also experts around that you can consult, but you need to weigh whom to consult.
If you still find that you cannot get any help then you might want to go and visit your local doctor or the leader of your Church. Again you need to weigh your decisions here. Your expert may be able to help you in some of these problems that are coming your way. Look carefully before you leap, some people are not good at all. Let me say here that, the first to consult is God. Meditate in his word and talk to Him. When you talked to Him, listen to His response. Many people are poor at listening to the response of God. Have you heard God before?
Strategies for Self-Mastery
Meditation is a great way to develop your ‘self’. It is a great foundation to success also. Meditation grooms the mental aspect of our life for us to develop in abundance.
Meditation drives away negative thoughts and damaging emotions and leaves you with abundance of positive ideas and focus. Medication can be developed with practice. Meditation required going to a silent place and thinking about the word of God. It requires that you remain focused and thinking about things that are “above”. Meditation is a great resource for our Christian life. Do you know how to meditate? Try it out today! In my next book, I shall explain how to meditate.
Be positive about yourself. Your power of optimistic thinking is a good way to improve your self-mastery skills. When you have a positive attitude in life it makes it easier for you to find who you are and to identify your weaknesses and strengths. After identifying your strengths and weaknesses, you can then build on the methods of improving your overall life. To know your weaknesses and strengths, you must recognize that some weaknesses are good experiences for your strength, while other negative weaknesses must be discarded.
To get most of your problems solved, you must continue to learn. Self-mastery becomes a great way at empowering you to believe in the ‘self’ and to make positive changes in your life. The important thing is to learn to rely on self, rather than rely on others to work you through self-mastery development. A big surprise awaits you as you discover the strengths you never thought you had.
Your beliefs play a huge role in developing you self-mastery skills. That also goes a long way to determine your outcome. After you have changed unrealistic beliefs and make them positive, your outcomes will bring you success.
If your choice of career is a source of constant worry for you, consider adjusting to reduce the stress on you. Know that discomfort is a part of life. Think of how to slow down to reduce the stress on you.
Take time out to relax yourself. Believe God is above all problems. Do those things you can and leave those ones you cannot. Pray to God for success in your programme. Learning to cope with stress in your life is an important way of introducing constructive change into your daily life. You owe it to yourself. Continue to make adjustments and improvement to attain good balance.
Exhibit your talents and know new skills that will facilitate you to choose a different career path. Most people chose wrong careers in life because they don’t actually understanding the patterns of their likes and dislikes. In developing new skills and talents, you may need to identify your experiences. Have a nice day.
