Self-mastery is not achieved by accident – it is a process that occurs as we interact effectively with the events and circumstances of our lives. Each moment of our lives provides an opportunity to practice self-mastery by expanding our visions, awakening the faculties of our minds and our hearts, and assuming full responsibility for living, growing, and contributing.
As we master our own emotions, we can enhance our ability to lead others, acting as a role model and someone others would truly wish to follow.
We are all at different stages of self-mastery. No matter what your current level, there is always room to grow and to strengthen your capacity. Self-mastery is an ongoing, never ending process. Along the way, you will experience periods of great insight and personal movement, and you will also encounter times when you feel frustrated and stuck.
During periods of duress, you may even find that your self-mastery level slips. This happens to many people and is not a cause for concern.
The following chart shows the three levels of self-mastery low, moderate, and extreme and describes how individuals behave at each stage with respect to the Competency Components of Striving for Self-Mastery. Test yourself to find out your current level of self-mastery.
The above insights and the recommended development activities will help you use difficult times as an opportunity for self-development. Even at times, when it may appear that no progress is being made, if you have patience, you will often find these periods actually produce the greatest growth of all.
