Never be afraid of change

Personal Change 7 habitsChange 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.

Esteem fills our life with life

It’s always up to us how we live our life.  Nobody else can take responsibility for how we live our life except ourselves.  This life wisdom is essential when it comes to being able to live a fulfilled life.

A fulfilled life is a life filled with life.  This may sound redundant – or overly simple.  Perhaps it was better expressed by Abraham Lincoln, who said: “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count.  It’s the life in your years.”

When we think about how we can create a fulfilled life we inevitably find the important role of esteem.  Esteem enriches our life in a very effective way because it makes us more conscious about ourselves as well as the world around us.  Esteem makes us sensitive toward the sense of human life.

With esteem we stop wasting our life with unkind thoughts or dissatisfaction.  We concentrate on the important things in life such as giving attention toward people and creating happiness with it.

The more consciously we live our life the more we fill it with life.  Esteem helps us to live our life consciously and to fill our life with life.


About Self-trust

Somebody said once: “To wish to be someone else is to waste the person we are”.  This is a quote about strong self-trust and therefore strong self-esteem.

Self-trust is about being content with who we are.  It can be tempting to look at other people and to wish we could be like them.  At the same time life experience tells us that envying others in a comparing way only leads us away from ourselves.

It makes no sense to compare ourselves with others because there is no common base on which we could do it.  Every human being is unique and therefore incomparable.

Just knowing this little life wisdom allows our self-trust to grow.  Self-esteem grows inevitably on the basis of a strong self-trust.

Can we change other people?

We don’t change other people, people change themselves.  But a healthy self-esteem can be a positive example to encourage others to make their own changes.

Having a high self-esteem means that we are self-confident in what we are and what we do in a healthy way.  This means that we don’t overestimate our abilities but that we have a deep self-understanding of failure and success as being part of our life.  This life wisdom emerges from a high self-esteem and can help people around us to undertake the effort for a positive change in their own lives.

We often experience that it’s easier to lead by example than by words.  When people see us handling life situations calmly and self-confidently they are more likely to do the same.  This is the only way we can help others to realize changes in their attitudes and lives.
