Our Lives are filled with Good Habits and Bad Habits
Good habits we may keep, but if one wants to better their life the bad habits must take a hike.
To better your life, you need to admit and say out loud “This habit blocks me from accomplishment and I have to change it.”
Rather than looking at the negative side of things, accept bad habits as truth but move past them to make your life better.
When you’re working to alter your life and change bad habits make sure you seek support and feedback.
Take little steps to accomplish big successes
There are two main factors which affect personal development and they are environment and genetics or heredity.
Over the years researchers have tried to prove whether it is our genes or our environment.
The only answer that has been determined so far is that both of them contribute greatly in shaping us.
This is when we tend to weigh nature with nurture.
In our early years, our parents and any other close relative are the ones who will make us who we will be by the time we reach five years.
When we reach that age of going to school then our personality development will come about from our classmates and the people we spend most our time with, The group that we hang around.
Unlearning ideas that don’t serve you
You know me, always trying to get your attention away from the down side of life and focus on the positives. Of course, life has its ups and downs – if it didn’t we’d all be bored beyond belief. One way to get yourself into positive mode is to ask yourself good questions, but here’s […]
“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” “For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.” “How […]
When it comes to personal behaviour and getting your daily activities in harmony with your life goals, it is absolutely critical to have a system in place.

Who are your heroes? I just love people that live their dreams, don’t you? I just recently watched the wonderful Robin Williams film, “Patch Adams.” Dr. Patch Adams, in case you don’t know, (SEE this movie – it’s a must for anyone into positive living – and I promise I’m not working for commission!), believed […]
The law of attraction states that if you want something, all you have to do is ask for it. This can sound too good to be true- just ask for anything at all and you will receive it? I can assure you it is perfectly true. The things you want in life really can be […]
Do you remember the last time someone gave you a compliment about your looks or your work?
Did you accept that compliment with grace and appreciation, or did you, like most people, thank the person for giving it to you, and then immediately try to justify it?
Learning to accept compliments is an important self-growth and development step.
Perhaps you feel, like most people, that to accept compliments is to start on the pathway to self-pride and no one likes an egotistical person.
There is a big difference between having pride in one’s achievements and being egotistical and this is something that we all need to learn to counter the negativity of our self-talk.
Try saying a simple and genuine thank you the next time someone offers you a compliment or praises you for a job well done.
