Change is the only constant in life. Knowing this life wisdom we can be accepting and even happy toward each change we undertake in our life. It’s the subtle changes we make in our life, rather than the big changes that I’m referring to.
What does change mean to you? Through change we develop understanding of ourselves by going through various life moments. We learn from our mistakes and we address them as we see fit.
Our self-esteem has a big influence on how we change. Our self-esteem shows us what we think about our personality and our activities. When we undergo a change in our life we change our self-esteem with us. And also, when we change our self-esteem we change with it our personality- becoming more self-sure and self-confident.
We never should be afraid of change. It belongs to our life. On the contrary, we should be happy about it and be aware so we can stay on a positive and growing path with every personal change we undertake.

One of the most inspiring and impactful books ever written, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has captivated readers for 25 years. It has transformed the lives of Presidents and CEOs, educators and parents— in short, millions of people of all ages and occupations.
This is, hands down, one of the best and most powerful books I’ve ever read in my life. I have recommended it to countless people. The fact that you’re seeking it out says volumes about your level of self-awareness as it is and this book builds on that. You know how some books make you say things out loud? You’ll read something and say, “YES! EXACTLY!” or read something profound and just sit dumbfounded, going “Wow,” and you have to take a moment to reflect on it? This book is full of moments like that.
This one is by far one of the best I’ve read in a very long time! The 7 habits can be applied in our everyday life to make it meaningful and worth living! It’s not a book you just read and go on with, it’s the kind of book you keep along and re-read over and over again to make sure you are progressing!
A classic that has changed my life for the better. What astounds me over and over is that there is profound insight or profound guidance on virtually every page of this book. No matter where I open it and read it, it teaches me something.
