Pilgrims were welcomed by the inscription ‘Know Thyself’ at the entrance of the ‘Temple of Apollo’ in ancient Greece. The implication was to create awareness, considering most ordinary people are oblivious of their true self and are ignorant of true happiness. People love happiness and tranquillity in life that has primarily two different dimensions. Generally, happiness is related to some kind of pleasure, but tranquillity refers to spiritual fulfilment. Pleasure is simply similar to all human beings, such as having a good meal and enjoying favourite music, breathing pleasant fragrances, comfortable weather and shelter, physical presence with beloved ones, and mating. These are the elements to satisfy our feelings, and we earnestly pursue those feelings to be happy. Like the American dream, pursuing happiness has become the core life necessity today in almost all societies. The materialistic motivation of the modern lifestyle is constantly keeping us engaged with more and more consumption activities and not letting us look for tranquillity. As a habit, we only count on our sensory pleasures now. We are always in a rush for temporary happiness and constantly ignore the pursuit of truth in life. Humans, the best creatures of the universe do not know the elements that have made them the best. In the present lifestyle, predominantly we suffer from limited vision and remain unconscious of our true selves. Nevertheless, only a few people search for a higher vision in life, the pursuit to acquire knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual fulfilment. Only a few people look for spiritual serenity that largely depends on practising individual principles, values, habits, and own psychological design. As a leader, you are obligated to pursue essential virtues as they possess higher consciousness of life. You need to uncover the true self to lead and enlight others as a leadership objective. According to Socrates, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.” What does it mean to know about self? Benjamin Franklin wrote, “There are three things extremely hard, steel, diamond, and to know one’s self.” The maxim 知彼知己，百战不殆 in the ‘Art of War’ means “know others and know thyself, and innumerable battles will not endanger you.” Why did Sun Tzu put so much emphasis on knowing oneself? To know about inner-self, you need to comprehend a few fundamental questions of life:
What does make an individual?
How do human character and personality grow?
What is the source of inner force in the core of the human mind that moves us?
What is the science behind human motivation?
How to unlock the warehouse of our own potential?
Hopefully, appropriate answers to these questions will help us to unfold many of the truths about life. We shall find new methods to study essential elements that influence our motivation. Learning the answers to those issues, people will find new opportunities to build themselves. Leaders will find a new spirit to lead, society will find stability, and this blue planet will find new age of peace.
