HOLISTIC APPROACH TO PERSONALITY
Qualities required for development of a personality (Sarvangi Vikas or Sarvatomukhi Pratibha) are :
1. Atmavishwas (self Confidence): Self-confidence is a must in each and every individual. “Can do” attitude must be developed in every individual.
2. Para Samman (Reverence for all creation): An individual must have reverence for nature, man, animal, etc.
3. Sahas (Daring): An individual must have the daring to face challenges and accept everything that is new and sudden whether it is a new thought or a sudden circumstance etc.
4. Dhairya (Patience): ‘Slow and steady wins the race’. The attitude of “wait” must be developed. Results always take time. A person must have patience. He must not do things in a hurry, as ‘Haste is Waste’.
5. Nischaytmakta (Decisiveness): An individual must be decisive and not indecisive. A person must have Nirnay Shakti and Nischayatmak Buddhi.
6. Abhyasu Vrutti (Readiness to learn): Readiness to learn and curiosity to learn go hand-in-hand. They help an individual gain knowledge, resulting in the development of the indivdual.
7. Straightforwardness and simplicity: A person should be straightforward and simple in life if he wants to develop. A person must know how to adjust in any situation.
8. Satata (Continuity): He must be a constant and consistent learner.
9. Perseverance: He must have perseverance and deep-thinking.

11. Audarya ()Generosity): A person must have a big heart and not a narrow one.
12. Sahanshilta (Tolerance): He must have the quality of tolerating any human being and any situation.
13. Tyagi (sacrificing): He must be a tyagi. He must learn to sacrifice his personal interests for a cause.

16. Alertness and Awareness: He must be alert about good and bad and must know how to carry his duties and responsibilities.
