Why are these skills essential?

Because without having developed them, you will always feel that something is missing in your life. What good is all the financial success in the world if you don't have self-confidence, know who you really are, what you  want, or what you're doing here? We've all witnessed many outwardly successful and famous people who have not been able to find personal happiness. No amount of fame or fortune could fill the void they felt inside.

Therefore, in order to enjoy the fruits of any achievement we must first be happy with ourselves and possess the following:

A healthy Self-Concept which includes the three skills of:
1. Know Yourself9 essential life skills
2. Love Yourself
3. Be True To Yourself.

The Critical Thinking that is needed to work on developing and honing the rest of the skills including:
4. Having A Personal Value System
5. Perspective
6. Have An Open Mind
7. Sense Of Humor
8. Resilience
9. Acceptance.

Personal development is an ongoing process and journey. As Robert Louis Stevenson said:

"To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life."
