know your competencies for a successful life



Thousands of books have been written on the secrets of success till date. Today virtually there remained no secrets to achieve success. Even though, all the people are not equally successful in their lives. The reason is people have to find out their secrets of success by themselves, which is not easy. To find out their own secrets they need assistance and direction. Without direction and guidance the talents will be wasted. This writing will help you not only to understand yourself but also others whomever you want to assess. You will be learning to know how competent you are and what are the areas you need to develop your competencies for achieving super success.
Developing your Competencies:
Why most of the people fail in their lives? Why they fail to achieve the success they desire even though they possess all qualifications, merit and talents? It is because they do not know themselves. They do not know their traits, skills, capacities and competencies. Once a person will understand his competencies and the areas where he is lacking his competencies, he can truly recognize himself. He will understand where he should focus his energy for his growth and development. Therefore understanding and analysing the competencies of oneself is the only gateway to super success. Here in this writing I am going to share with you all the secrets that can make you successful in your life.

1. Find out your competencies:
Determining goals is a prerequisite to success. Before determining your goals you have to know that whether you possess the qualities to achieve the goals that want to set. Are you competent enough to achieve your goals? The competencies only will boost your confidence to achieve your goals. Therefore before you determine your goals, know your competencies. After knowing your competencies only you can set proper goals in your life. Following are some of the types of competencies:

Intellectual Competencies:
This is the most important type of competencies that determines your probability of success. It determines what you can do and not what you want to do. Intellectual competencies can be best recognised by the various intellectual skills e.g. investigative skills for fact finding, decision making, rational and analytical thinking, planning, creativity and innovativeness.
Answer these questions to find out your intellectual competencies:
Can you take effective decisions?                                      Yes/No
Can you analyse a situation properly?                                Yes/No
Do you study books regularly?                                          Yes/No
Do you always behave rationally?                                      Yes/No
Have you determined your goals?                                      Yes/No
Have you developed a definite plan to achieve your goals? Yes/No
If your answers are negative, you have to take steps to develop your intellectual competencies.
Emotional or Personal Competency:
A person can’t become wise if there is no connection between the head and the heart. Answer the following questions:
Are your consistent in your behaviour?                             Yes/No
Do you behave to the same stimulus similarly?                  Yes/No
Do you contribute to positive behaviour in family, society or workplace?                                                                                  Yes/No
Can you handle pressure effectively and independently?   Yes/No
Can you react to negative situations proactively?               Yes/No
Can you accept responsibility of your own faults?             Yes/No
Can you control yourself properly in any situation?           Yes/No
Do you blame others for your faults?                                 Yes/No
Do you criticise others frequently?                                     Yes/No
Controlling negative emotions is very essential to achieve greater success in life. Understand the above questions, answer them genuinely and know where do you stand.
Inter-personal Competencies:
How well you can express yourself?
How well you can make oral presentation?
Do you maintain modesty in your behaviour?
What is your capacity of reading and writing?
Can you leave impact or influence people?
Can you persuade people?
How flexible are you?

Leadership Competencies:
You can become a leader only when you possess leadership skills. To understand what is your leadership competencies, answer the following questions:
What is your organizing capacity?
What are your negotiating skills?
Can you motivate others?
Do you have the capacity to empower others?
Can you independently work under continuous pressure?
What are your risk taking abilities?
How decisive are you?
Can you work together with a team?
How well you can coordinate with each other in a team?
Can you lead a team? How effectively can you manage a team?
Can you effectively delegate works to your subordinates?

After finding out all your answers, you will have some ideas about your competencies. You will come to know what you possess and what you do not. As a result you will be free from some of your false self beliefs. You will now get a proper idea and image about your self which will help you to set your goals and to achieve them.

2.    Find out your goals:
Goal setting is a very important task in life. If you do not set a goal you can’t achieve it. Therefore the first and foremost thing in your life is to determine what you want from your life. Make a list of all your dreams and desires and convert them into your goals. While setting your goals keep in mind your competencies, personality traits and values that you admire.
3.    Find out the areas where you need to develop your competencies in terms of your goals:
This is a very important area where most of the people fail. We must understand our strengths and weaknesses as well. We must know the areas where we need growth. If we do not develop those areas, we will not be able to achieve our goals.
To develop your intellectual competencies you have to acquire the required information. You need to learn to analyse the problems critically to find out a suitable solution. You have to develop the habit of continuous learning.
To develop your critical thinking you have to practice reasoning. Solve reasoning problems on a daily or weekly basis to sharpen your critical and analytical thinking. You will be able to find out the answer of the problems you face in your life and workplace.  Develop the habit of studying books that will help you to reach your goal.
Proper planning skill is very important for life. As author Alan Lakein said, “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
To develop our emotional competencies we need to learn to befriend our emotions. You need to practice self-discipline and tremendous self-control. Without self-control you can’t expect your desired success. You should be firm in your resolutions and principles. You should follow your ideals always at any cost.
Read books on leadership traits. Study the biographies and autobiographies of the great leaders of the world.
4.     Find out your regular activities on a daily basis for rapid growth:
Your most important work is to find out the activities or practices that will lead you closer to your goals. After finding out the practices you have to make union with them. You have to integrate yourself with the practices which will develop your competencies to such a level that success will come to you spontaneously. You have to work hard. You have to make ‘working hard to the level of your goals’ a spontaneous process so that every achievement will become ‘spontaneous’ for you. This is the simple and the biggest secret of my teaching. Anybody can achieve any goal provided he can integrate himself in the process and loss himself in them. Success is bound to follow.
5.    Find motivations to focus:
You have to focus on your goals if you want to achieve it. To stay focussed you have to stay motivated. Find enough motivation for yourself to achieve your goal. Never allow your goals to remain out of your sight. See your goals everywhere. Think of your goals. Dream of your goals. Most importantly find a Mentor who can actually help you to realize your goals.
In the Conclusion:
To develop your competencies you have to know ‘where to focus’; you have to know ‘what your goals are.’ Moreover you also have to find out the things that distracts you from your goal. Otherwise unconsciously you will be distracting yourself from your goals. If you get distracted you will reach nowhere. Develop your competencies to the level of your goals. Speed doesn’t matter but direction matters a lot. You have to raise your level of performance to that extent so that success will become a spontaneous process for you. I want to conclude with the quote of Friedrich Hegel, “A man who has work that suits him, and a wife whom he loves, has squared his accounts with life.”
