Personal mastery is not something that will only help you deal with stress and improve your confidence.  It can also apply to your career as well.  There are numerous studies showing personal mastery to have an impact on your everyday life because it makes you better at managing all aspects of your life.

Applying personal mastery in your career development is called career mastery.  Career mastery can help integrate your personal development and growth into your professional growth and development.

There are different elements necessary for career mastery.

Be proactive. It is important to go after what you want.  In the application of career mastery, you need to identify your goals and take necessary action towards them.  You will overcome barriers and limitations daily.  While you do not have to overcome everything at once, it is important that you perform consistent actions daily.

Connect with others. In order to connect effectively with other people or network, you need to connect with yourself first.  By intricately knowing your own likes and dislikes, your strengths and weaknesses, you will be in a better position to make effective connections with other people.

Get informed. Being informed is extremely important.  Through the course of your career and personal life, you will be faced with many decisions, large and small.  Making the correct decision is mainly about gathering enough information to make an informed choice.

Be focused. When setting your goals, you will need to make decisions on the best way to achieve them.  However, we all know how easy it is to become sidetracked.  This can throw us off course and make it that much harder to reach our goals.  Recognize when something or someone is a distraction and place it/them in their proper context.  Stay focused on what is most important.

Know your potential. It is important to know your potential.  If you do not really believe that you can achieve something, then you never will.  Only by faith, determination, and hard work will you achieve your goals.  Take responsibility for your actions and figure out what works for you.  Then do it.

It is important to take charge of your career.  You have to take the initiative yourself and not let other people dictate your career path.  Do something that you love.  Successful people not only create and build their businesses solely for economic reasons, but they also love their businesses and what they do.

Achieving personal mastery with one skill and behavior can produce incredible results.  Starting or shifting your career as a professional or an entrepreneur is not easy.  You have to master yourself and your skills first.  Yet, being able to master the tenets of personal mastery will serve you well throughout the course of your life.  Self-control is increasingly lacking in today’s society.  Those who are able to channel their thoughts, feelings, and abilities will always be successful and reach their goals.

  1. The greatest secret to success is buried deep within us; the main problem is that people don’t know how to bring it out. If your potential is more than you acknowledge then you will never reach it. You have to be confident in yourself that you will achieve what you believe. You have to have unwavering courage like Henry Ford; he refused to turn back when others told him his engine would not work. The first sign of opposition sometimes stop people in their tracks and entrepreneurial spirit disappears.

  2. BRAVO!!! I read so many articles about saving money, cutting back on credit and other practical aspects of “Surviving the Recession”, and rarely find personal mastery on the recommendation list. As a whole health coach, I of course, value this highly.
