This paper seeks to give a perspective with regard to competences as human assets. It is argued that an individual who wants to be successful on work life and non-work life as well needs to possess seven competences, i.e., technical competence, human relation competence, conceptual competence, intelligence, personality, individual character, and personal management competences which have to be learnt by acquiring knowledge, attitudes and skills from the two sources, i.e., heredity and environment which consists of education, training and experience. Motivation of the individual moderates the relationship between the seven competences and success. Finally a personal approach for building competences is presented.
