Self-Appraisal is purely self assessment. One should have strong idea about his or her positives and negatives. One should evaluate his or her capacity, talent and skill to do his or her best to the society. If in your self- appraisal you seem to be wrong in your ideas or tasks then even the appraisal of crores of people and powerful people can’t make your side as a correct one. So many times people do mistake in their self evaluation. They feel that they only are right and all the others are completely wrong. At these situations even the whole world with their efforts could not convince the person and make him accept the fact that he is wrong if he is really wrong. Self – appraisal takes a man out of the clutches of inferiority complex. When you yourself judge you and your positive nice points and behaviours, your enemies or evildoers can’t create inferiority complex in you by creating or talking false complaints of you. Here your self- appraisal has created strength and indomitable courage in you.
The man who has the proper evaluation, estimate and assessment of himself emerges as the undefeatable, successful human being in this world. The man who knows his power correctly and who judges his capacity perfectly never becomes the victim of flattery or false praises.
When a man becomes a victim of flattery he really loses his original strength and power. Taking the false, artificial appraisals as the real we land ourselves in unending dangers thinking that we have the real power to accomplish that task. But there is nothing wrong in coming out of your comfort zone and try new things. But this should be done based on our own self evaluation.
What I am? What I can do? How much strong I am? Am I courageous? Am I intelligent? Am I hard task Master? Am I successful Mission director? How much I am Wrong? How much I am Right? Am I perfect or false? Like this so many questions one should ask in her or his mind and should do the self- appraisal. Self- appraisal is the real Appraisal.
In all the “Mann Ki Baat” Radio Programme our India’s Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modigives much value and importance to this aspect self-appraisal. Our PM requests the citizens of India to do the self assessment of their hidden capabilities and undisclosed powers, talents and skills and ask them to utilize their powers for our country’s future.
Our PM always says that any human being cannot be belittled or humiliated if he or she knows and judges his or her power by the self- appraisal. “Kud ko Pehchano” (Know Yourself) should be the Mool (main) Mantra of our life.
I would like to remember the words of the American writer Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson in his great Essay Self- Reliance.
Self- Reliance is none other than self – appraisal. Self – Reliance and self – appraisal are no doubt one and the same. First do self- appraisal and then turn it into self – reliance.
“To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men – that is Genius.”
“A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages.”
