Many of us in our day to day life work hard to achieve our personal as well as our professional goals. We earn money, power, status, respect or whatever we could imagine of and strive hard to maintain them.  Moreover, our present day society is highly focused on immediate gains, specifically material gains. They have in fact become the barometer for one’s success. The ability of a person to earn money, status, power etc. as quickly as possible is cherished, and young persons are encouraged to do so.

Work has occupied the centre-stage of our life. Who you are is defined by what you do. Work has also become the medium of seeking fulfillment and meaning in life. The big question today faced by the youngsters is what to do in life. Our choice of work is greatly influenced by the money, status and parent’s wish rather then identifying one’s true gifts/talents, developing them and building one’s work career in that direction. 

However despite having everything a person needs or desires, still many of us experience a sense of un-fulfillment or incompleteness, a feeling that something is missing in life.  Many people in pursuit of materialistic goals tend to overlook their latent potentialities of what they could become or what they are meant to become. When this aspect of human personality is ignored, incompleteness is experienced. Sometimes, this feeling of incompleteness can also cause stress, anxiety and frustration and at times it becomes so dominant that we become desperate to find the reason of this feeling of incompleteness.

Since beginning, man has been in the quest of completeness. A search for self-fulfillment, self-realization, self-discovery and self-awareness.The challenge before today’s modern Individuals is how to find real meaning, purpose and true development, not just for work but also for their personal life.

The focus of this initiative is on helping individuals to identify, develop and pursue their true potentials which act as a medium to realize their "true-self", a gateway to self fulfillment and well being.

Point to Ponder

"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be. This need we call self-actualization…It refers to man’s desire for self-fullfillment, namely to the tendency for him to become actually in what he is potentially: to become everything one is capable of becoming."

– Abraham Maslow
