You Can Change Your Attitude

Are you happy with your life?
Are you satisfied with what is going in your life?

If things go wrong, do you express angry and impatience?
If things go wrong, do you let your anger boil inside you?

Can you accept what cannot be changed, but do your best to change what can be changed?

Plans, expectations and desires don’t always turn out as expected, but this should not be a cause for unhappiness, dissatisfaction or resentment. Right thinking, planning, patience and a positive frame of mind can ensure a greater chance of success, and therefore more happiness and satisfaction.

Much in life is a matter of attitude, and attitude can be changed and improved. You don’t have to let your habitual way of thinking dictate your attitude. You don’t have to let subconscious habits make you suffer or behave and act in ways that are detrimental for you.

Do Personal Growth Techniques Work?

Personal GrowthPeople often start enthusiastically repeating affirmations, visualizing and using various inner growth techniques. They sometimes get fast, though minor results, and this makes them feel happy and elated, but after a while, nothing seems to work anymore. This causes frustration and bewilderment, and makes people wonder what they are doing wrong. Sometimes this leads them to abandon the techniques they have been using.

This is quite a common occurrence, and you might have faced this situation yourself.  After reading a book or attending a workshop on personal development, the law of attraction or any other subject related to personal development, you become inspired and motivated. You suddenly discover that you can make changes in your life.

You start practicing what you have learned, and you soon obtain visible results. You feel elated and satisfied that you are making progress, but then, all of a sudden, nothing seems to work anymore. You affirm and visualize or follow other techniques, but nothing happens. This is quite frustrating.

Some people abandon their hopes and expectations, feeling they are facing a wall. Others read book after book or participate in endless workshops, believing that this will help them understand better the inner laws. This sometimes turns into an obsession of reading one book after another, and practically doing nothing.

Self Improvement – What Do You Improve?

By Remez Sasson

The term self improvement is a bit misleading and is sometimes erroneously interrupted. What do you really improve? You don’t improve your “self” and you don’t improve your “spirit”. You learn to develop certain skills that can help you go through life. You learn to look at things from a different, broader viewpoint, and you learn to forego limiting thoughts and habits.

You don’t improve something that does not exist in you. You improve and develop some skills that are already in you, but are weak, in a dormant state, or negatively expressed.

Self improvement is actually not “Improving yourself”, so much as changing your point of view, changing the way you look at yourself and the world, and strengthening and developing certain skills.

Self improvement is about developing:
  • Stronger willpower.
  • Better self discipline.
  • Better concentration.
  • Some degree of emotional and mental detachment.
  • More patience.
  • More tolerance.
  • Getting rid of negative or weakening habits and developing new ones.
  • Learning to think more positively.
  • Learning to be more kind and loving.

This is a partial list of the aims of self improvement.
