Career 2014 Singapore: Power of Life Profiling
Mastery comes in many different forms – they can range from the physical, emotional, spiritual to financial. But the one that transcends all these forms is still personal.
Personal mastery, simple as it may sound, has more to do with the self than others. Seek first to understand yourself, then understand others.
This was the promise I made to the participants who gathered here at the Career 2014 Singapore at the newly refurbished Suntec City Convention Centre. Simply titled ‘Power of Life Profiling’, the 45 minute talk was a useful introduction into why people should know themselves inside out (so as to speak!). Power is knowledge and when used in the right way, it can help us become a better person. And using it for the greater good brings about more harmonious relationships and a better quality of living.
There is no mystery surrounding life profiling. It is easy as it can get. All you need is your date of birth, By working out the numbers mathematically, one can instantly tell your character, strength(s) and weakness(es). It is certainly much easier than the algebra or calculus we used to do back in high school.
As I always tell my clients – if you don’t like something, there are two options you can take. Option A would be to continue disliking it. Option B would be to take some action to change it. Remember, the discourse of life is colourful because we lead eventful lives and not mundane ones. Should you know your weakness and you are not happy about it, come up with concrete action plans to make the change for the better. And since you know your strength, all the more you must harness it to the maximum so that you will shine like a diamond.
People are strange creatures. As kids, we used to be unafraid of almost anything. Should we fall while attempting to walk, we may cry. But we also certainly pick ourselves up and start trying to walk again. Yet as we grow older and become adults, we have so many self-doubts and limiting beliefs. We feel we are not good enough, not smart enough, not fast enough…the list goes on.
Never ever belittle yourself. You alone hold the power that you can unleash from within to take you from zero to hero. And life profiling is the key that unlocks that power.
