Chapter 1 : UNDERSTANDING SELF "There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving and that's your own self". The core of human development is self. The personal effectiveness starts from within. Self in the power house which facilitates overall development of an individual. It helps you to know your hidden potentialities which is the true source of energy and motivation. Self- confidence, self-motivation, positive attitude, taking initiative, perseverance, meaningful relationships, impact making and belief system are crucial ingredients for achieving success. Self is the core of core competencies. Competency means knowledge, skills and attitude. Being competent means you keep on updating your knowledge, skill and attitude.

The solution is to still the mind, to get in touch with yourself in order to able to be a silent witness to one's thoughts, attitude, emotions and behaviour. There are two people within us as real me and role me . That is we all have a 'real self' somewhere inside. With some people it is locked away and only their nearest and dearest know that 'self' sometimes not even then other people reveal their 'real self' more readily to others. The 'role me' self is the person we communicate to the world through our behaviour. We all have one, but with some people it is a thicker crust than others.
