Self Development


Why do we choose to accept a first impression?

It seems that we have grown up with accepting them and therefore it becomes a habitual act. This accepting a habitual act alone proves how many other aspects of our life can be clouded by judgements made from assumptions.

Is accepting a first impression actually the first impression? More often than not it is the second impression. The first impression is a gut feeling that we discard incorrectly.

How to Solve Problems

 We solve problems by dipping into our knowledge and experience and producing an answer.
 Most adults will have the chance of experience as it happens directly in front of them each day. As for knowledge few choose to gather any more; as a consequence they will always be disadvantaged.
 To search for knowledge need not be tiresome, in a day of MEASURE there is always room for study.
 A measured day equals a measure life. Measure allows abundance to flow and happiness to flourish.

100 Self Esteem Tips


First it is important to understand the exact meaning of ‘Self-Esteem’. The Oxford English Dictionary definition is:

“One’s good opinion of one-self.”

What in essence we are trying to achieve with these 100 ways is to trigger a way back to a happy and contented state of mind.

Many people, and the psychology profession wouldn’t be able to survive without them, use the process of improving SELF-ESTEEM as an important step to the development of feeling good about one-self again.

This pathway back to a ‘good sense of worth’ may not be achieved with these 100 ways alone, but we can assure you that you will have been elevated sufficiently to see what’s required next.

Allow me to just illustrate with a little story how we underestimate our worth: … to read the full article, please follow this link:

Solving Problems


For you; what is a problem? Is a problem just another noose around your neck, or is it a blessing in disguise?

I guess the appropriate answer is how you perceive it to be. That perception is generally determined by the emotion you’re in at that moment.

A change in perception can change the whole view of a problem. Today’s story illustrates the same principle but calls it an adjustment in attitude.

As a few small problems seem to follow on from each other, is this not a sign that you’re not fully in control? You’re beginning to drift into the wrong emotion and no amount of effort will prevent further calamities.

Obama's Victory - Good or Bad?

Politicians are notorious for breaking promises, but in Obama’s defense he does look both sincere and honest. As a ’white’ person I’m all for powerful speeches and words that change the world. I wish him all the best, yet he will be in for a rough ride I am sure.


Martin Luther’s famous quote “… I have a dream … that some day our children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character … “


Obama has some big footprints to follow. On November 5th 2008 I hope his wisdom and philosophies transform both the US and the World.

First Impressions v Intuition

To improve our self development we need introduce a goodness that prevents the proverbial first impression being accepted. Making assumptions means that you are taking risks, and taking risks causes heartache and problems.
When you first see a tramp you show immediate empathy and sorrow; and only then do you put up your guard and make the recognizable ‘first impression’.
The more you assume the more you are making decisions without the full facts. This leads to inaccuracies in your life; you’ll be continually going over ground you’ve already trodden.
