Few years ago when I was having a soft skill training, the coach asked each one of us of their ultimate goal. All responses were ordinary for me except one that took my attention and I still remember it very clearly.
It was ” to be the master of myself”. It sounded weird for me. I said to myself, I’m I not your master ? Should I be my own master as well ? How good that would make me feel?
Well, that was a shifting point in my life. I committed to the same goal!
I changed totally my focus on myself… I started learning more about me. There is a lot I can do by getting the knowledge I need in order to know how to treat myself and how to take the full control of it…
This simply means that I can just ask myself to do something and it is done, simply by knowing how to ask it.. Same as the way we learn to treat other people.. How to respect them, when to ask .. what to say .. how our words can influence our relationships… all of this is so important if we want to live in a society..
How to act, what to do in order to get what we want from ourselves … are knowledge that we need to learn and to give it a non negligible importance.
My awareness is spreading, I’m not in a position of saying that I’m the master of myself .. but I’m doing my best 🙂
During today’s run, I was about to stop a couple of times because I felt out of breath, but really I was not, It was my mind that is trying to convince me to stop because it was so frustrated and it was afraid of loosing the control of my body. Then I shifted my attention to the thoughts coming in and focused only on my breath, on my legs and arms .. my breathing in a rhythmic way was relaxing me and convincing my mind that there is nothing it really needs to worry about it. Then it calmed down and let me run further .. This is a sample way of learning about me.. I’m looking forward to learn more.
