" Personal Growth........................"

Personal Growth ..............
(Sun, March 16, 2008 - 8:57 PM)

- Life is not about finding yourself; it's about creating the person you want to be. If, at the end of the day, you don't like what you've become, change it! Be yourself because there is no one better.

- We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.

- You are special because of who you are.

- Fear not the unseen...the unseen is a place of new horizons, new talents, new gifts, new experiences. The unseen is our future.

- It is up to us to give ourselves recognition. If we wait for it to come from others, we feel resentful when it doesn't, and when it does, we may well reject it.

- To judge a man objectively, please do not discount the reasons for his flaws and recognize the efforts he exerts to rectify his wrongs in life. Do not judge unless you are perfect.

- Judgmentalism is not a good habit. It does not allow you to open your horizon to the many facts in life because it will allow negative factors to block your objective thinking. Hence, this quote will invite people to think twice before judging a person.

- True friendship is not an external search but an internal search of the soul, found in the soul and later on experienced outside of the soul. Meaning true friendship starts inside all of us before we can expect others to give it to us.

- Do not judge others by your own thoughts. They are living a different life than you are. What might be good for one person may not be good for another. What might be bad for one person might change another person's life. Allow people to make their own mistakes or their own decisions. We learn and grow with each decision and/or mistake that we make...but again, what might be a mistake for you would be a blessing for someone else.

- What comes out from the heart is true and what is left hidden inside hurts.

- There is nothing wrong with making mistakes and not having all the answers, so long as we are willing to admit this and strive for personal betterment. Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out that they don't.

- First pretend to yourself that you are happy, slowly it becomes your habit and finally it becomes your character.

- If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.

- No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.

- Life is for living not surviving; animals survive. They eat, drink and show their emotions openly either love or hate, but we have reasoning power and know well what is right and what is wrong and know well the difference.

- Everything is an addiction...the key is in learning how to control them.

- No matter how much you dislike a person, fight them with love. For you don't have to befriend them or fight for their affection, love them from a far. Don't ever burn bridges for you never know when you must cross that bridge again.
