pThe ancient Toltecs believed that life as we perceive it is a dream. We each live in our own personal dream, and all of our dreams come together to make the Dream of the Planet. Problems arise when we forget that the dream is just a dream, and thus fall victim to believing that we have no control over it./ppiThe Mastery of Self/i takes the Toltec philosophy of the Dream of the Planet and the personal dream and reveals how we can live as our true, authentic, loving self, not only in solitude but in any situation or scenario that confronts us./p

One of the cornerstones of New Thought, the precursor to New Age thinking, is the marriage of mind and spirit, of science and religion. Another foundational block of the philosophy is the belief that each person is born with the full potential of transcending mundane existence and achieving spiritual enlightenment and communion with God. In Mastery of Self, Christian D. Larson gracefully guides the reader to a better understanding of these basic principles, and provides practical instruction on how to both open and rein in one's self, to ensure the individual continues moving ever forward and is building always toward the fulfillment of that potential, gaining a healthier, happier life along the way.American New Thought pioneer CHRISTIAN DAA LARSON (b. 1874) is the author of the well-known Optimist Creed and published several important works of spiritual science, including Mastery of Self, In the Light of the Spirit, and The Great Within.

The development of self- and emotional regulatory processes helps children to regulate their behavior based on their cultural context and to develop positive social relationships. This handbook brings together heretofore disparate literatures on self- and emotional regulation, brain and physiological processes, mastery motivation, and atypical development to highlight how mastery motivation is related to self-regulation and to clarify the relation between these various processes. Authors from a variety of countries and backgrounds provide an integrated, up-to-date review of the research and the key theoretical models to demonstrate how these processes relate to cultural and individual differences in both typical and atypical development. The renowned editors, all experts in a particular domain of self-regulation, provide section opening chapters that review the literature, provide a perspective that explains the findings, and suggest directions for future research. Although the focus is on quantitative studies, some qualitative findings and research using brain imaging methodologies are included. Outstanding features include: Reviews the development of self and emotional regulation from infancy through adolescence. Contributors from various countries and backgrounds provide an integrative review of the literature to guide the direction of future research. Features contributions from those who have had a strong impact on self-regulation research. Reviews research on developmental disorders that have implications for self-regulation. There are four sections. Section one introduces the development of self- and emotional regulation. This section reviews how self-regulation adapts based on personal and culturally-based goals and how individual differences predispose some to behavior disorders. Socialization influences are examined including a look at when typical regulation processes go awry. Section 2 examines physiological and brain processes as they relate to the development of typical and atypical processes, along with neurocognitive development of performance monitoring and how these processes change over time, cortical activation differences, and behavioral and electrocortical measures of attentional bias. Section 3 reviews the development of self-regulation and mastery motivation including a review of the Dimensions of Mastery Questionnaire (DMQ), cross-national comparisons, and what the DMQ can tell us about self-regulation. The section concludes with a look at the development of self-regulation and mastery motivation in individuals with a developmental disability. Section 4 examines self-regulation in atypical development and evidence-based treatment approaches in children with ADHD, autism, and Down syndrome. This book is intended for researchers, graduate students, and practitioners in psychology, neuroscience, human development, and education interested in the development of self and emotional regulatory processes.

This book addresses three core ideas essential to life and leadership mastery: (1) The ability to take self-responsibility releases you from the victim mindset. (2) The ability to deal with strong feelings allows you to mine the jewels in those grenades. (3) The ability to live and lead from the 3rd altitude of life--the level of purpose. You will learn to climb the mountain from power, to principle, to purpose. These three keys to self-mastery will build true competence and compassion in your life.

"We possess within us a force of incalculable power, which, when we handle it unconsciously is often prejudicial to us. If on the contrary we direct it in a conscious and wise manner, it gives us the mastery of ourselves and allows us not only to escape and to aid others to escape, from physical and mental ills, but also to live in relative happiness, whatever the conditions in which we may find ourselves."
