• PERSONAL MASTERY A priest was confronted by a soldier while he was walking down a road in pre-revolutionary Russia. The soldier, using his rifle to block the path of the priest, commanded, “Who are you? Where are you going? Why are you going there?” Unfazed, the priest calmly replied, “How much do they pay you?” Somewhat surprised, the soldier responded, “Twenty-five kopecks a month.” The priest paused and, in a deeply thoughtful manner, said, “I have a proposal for you. I’ll pay you 50 kopecks each month if you stop me here every day and challenge me to respond to those same three questions.” How many of us have a “soldier” confronting us with life’s tough questions, pushing us to pause, to examine and to develop ourselves more thoroughly? If “character is our fate,” as Heraclitus wrote, do we step back on a regular basis to question and affirm ourselves and to reveal our character? As we lead others and ourselves through tough times, do we draw on the inner resources of our character, or do we lose ourselves in the pressures of the situation? Personal Mastery is not a simplistic process of merely affirming our strengths while ignoring our weaknesses. It is about acknowledging our talents and strengths while facing the underdeveloped, hidden or shadow sides of ourselves. Personal Mastery involves appreciating the rich mixture of our life experience.
