Nothing is perfect the first time

Nothing is perfect the first time

There is nothing that was created or invented by man that was perfected the first time. Everything that we do or have done is never perfect the first time.

Your values make the person you are

values

Life is lived from the inside out. At the very core of your personality are your values. What you become or what you are, is largely dictated by the values that you hold strong. If your values are love, kindness, honesty, positivity and sincerity that is what will often be shown in your life. Our outward life is merely a reflection of our inner core values.

Yourself image determines your performance

Positive self image

We all have formed an image of our self in one way or another. I have been doing a personal study of my performance in relation to my personal image. The discovery has been phenomenon.

I am not made or unmade by the things that happen to me but by the things that I do, this means that I have learned to live from the inside out. The bible says we shall know them by their fruit, very true indeed. What we manifest outside is as a result of the fullness of the inside.

How to create a positive self-image

“Life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself” ~ George Bernard Shaw. Before we start please get a piece of paper and write down the answer to the following questions.

The answers off course will vary from individual to individual and will reflect what you think you radiate and transmit to your associates and peers. Galileo Galilei once said “you cannot teach a man anything; you can only help…

Taking the giant step of growth

Giant step

“All growth is from within” ~ Master Key. “Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life” ~ Herbert Otto. I know and believe that every normal thinking person has a dream, at least I have one. We all want to believe deep down in our souls that we have a special gift, that we can make a difference, that we can touch others in a special way, and that we can help make society and the world at large a better place. The biggest challenge….
