Today's Meditation:Many people have the ambition to succeed; they may even have a special aptitude for their job. And yet they do not move ahead. Why? Perhaps they think that since they can master the job, there is no need to master themselves.
What an interesting concept: "to master themselves." It sounds in a way somewhat rigid, somewhat controlling. On the other hand, it also sounds quite necessary if we're ever going to work our way past some of the obstacles that we face in life. If I want to excel at the work I do, learning how to do the work is only half of the battle. Learning how to work effectively so that I can do a great job is another big part of the process.
My stepson tells me of someone who works with him in the electronics department of a large department store. This guy, he says, will do a little bit of work and then spend half an hour watching whatever video happens to be showing on the display monitor. Obviously he's learned how to do his job, but his inability to master his own work habits guarantees that he won't be one of the people who get promoted any time soon, and if they ever need to cut back on employees, he'll probably be the first to go.
We constantly read about people who "burn out" in their jobs. Unfortunately, they seem to be unable to manage their time and their work to make sure that they don't overwork themselves. If they learn how to master themselves, they probably would be able to spend quite a bit more time at a job without burning out.
Not mastering ourselves leads to poor work habits, gossiping, incomplete work, and high levels of tension and stress on the job. Mastering ourselves can help us to make sure that we don't overstep any boundaries that we shouldn't overstep, and that we excel at the work that we do rather than just doing an adequate job. It really is up to us and the attitude we bring to the jobs we do.
Try not to become a person of success but rather try to become a person of value.
