Is Self-Improvement Different For Women Than Men?

Is Self-Improvement Different For Women Than Men?   1 comment

This article is the starting point for self-Improvement. Is Self-Improvement different because of your sex?  Self-improve has become mainstream conversation in recent years, it seems to be showing up in articles almost everywhere. Almost everyone should work on their self-confidence, happiness, career, finances, relationships, home and health. Wherever you may be, whatever your situation, you should work on self-improvement.Get ready to change your life! Set up a program and start working on it.  You can reach your full potential and create the success you deserve. There is no quick fix; the road to change is not an easy one. For this to work you must commit to and dedicated yourself to bring new changes of improvement into your life.  I suggest you take it one step at a time, the greater the commitment the longer the journey.Ask yourself is self-improvement any different for women than for men?  My answer is yes and no.  However both male and females differ physically and the fact is that a woman does have circumstances that are different from those of the man, when it comes to self-improvements they are basically the same.

Have you ever though that some men and women are born leaders?  The answer to that is no, being positive and staying positive is a choice for both men and women. One must stay positive if we are to improve ourselves. Building self-esteem and drawing lines for self-improvement is a choice, not a rule. Leaders and positive thinkers are not born they are made out of the desire for self-improve. If you want to be a leader you have to develop a burning desire for self-improvement and stay with it.

Your changes must come from inside. Your work won’t improve unless you improve regardless what your sex may be. Your relationships won’t improve unless you improve. Society won’t change unless the people in it change, meaning you. You are the only person you can change. While self-improvement is not contagious, a change in you can influence a change in others.

Now it is time for you to start putting the puzzle together for self-improvement?  First be positive. Second be contented and most of all stay happy. Don’t forget to be appreciative.  Never overlook the opportunity to compliment someone.

A positive way of life will help you build a higher self-esteem, let this be your starting point for self-improvement. Turn loose your resistance, don’t procrastinate.  Find your internal motivation then move forward toward with your self-improvement. Discover your inner self and explore your own personal powers.

Success And Happiness On “The Road Not Taken”

Steve Jobs at the WWDC 07

Set your goals high as journey down the road your to success. Raise the bar when you reach a goal and raise it even higher when you reach the next. Never give up! Remember it is your right to be wrong, because if you do you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward. One who does not make mistake probably is doing nothing anyway. You cannot be a success without making a few mistakes along the way. Learn from your mistakes and try not to repeat them.

What is success? Is it someone who spent their life working 60 to 80 hours a week, living in airports and   hotels, as they fight their way up the corporate ladder to VP of Candy Company? He would probably consider himself more successful than the guy who owned the local garage. You know the guy that spends his nights at home having dinner with his family, weekends and spare time playing with his kids and working on his hobbies, Could it be the local garage owner who goes home at night and eats his meals with the family and helps the kids with their homework could be more happier and healthier? Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide what success means to them, it is important that everyone be mindful of the decision they are making or planning to make.

Each one of us has to choose which road in life to take, with each different road come a different adventure, a different successful story and a different love story. Be careful which road you take make sure it is the right one for you.

Remember I said you have the right to be wrong? Yes you do, you are going to make a few mistakes along the way but the earlier in life you can figure out what your mistakes and weaknesses are the sooner you can move forward and be more successful and happy with every aspect of life. Take charge of your life if you want to be successful you have to be happy.  Without happiness wealth has very little or no meaning.

Don’t be afraid to change your mind, what is right for someone else may not be right for you.  We are all unique and different individuals; everyone must custom tailor their own life if they want to be happy and successful.

Myself, I took *”The Road Less Traveled” and like Robert Frost the poet said said “That has made all the difference”.   Good luck my friends in making the right choice this is where it gets tough.  Taking the road less traveled was a very hard decision for me with so many roads to choose from.  Many of those roads were quite inviting but many were dead ends leading to nowhere.  Once I made the right choice I never looked back except to measure my successes and failures. From there I set my sails and my goals to a new life with new horizons. For you the road most travel may be right for you, like I said we are all different. We see, we feel and we do things different so don’t be judgmental of the person who sees it differently than you.

A man who also took “The Road Not Taken” was one of the most successful business men in the business world; he was the late Steven Paul Jobs better known as “Steve” Jobs, co-founded of Apple IncorporatedSteve Jobs was a household name and American business legend in the world of success. He helped revolutionized the world as we know it today with his contributions as a designer, inventor and entrepreneur in the world of communications and computers technology.

I will leave you with the following thoughts you may wish to consider using on your own road to success, they were spoken by the late Steve Jobs. Steve had a set of principles he lived by which I would like to share with you.

1. Do what you love.

2. Put a dent in the universe.

3. Make connections.

4. Say no to 1,000 things.

5. Create insanely different experiences.

6. Master the message.

7. Sell dreams, not products.

I wish your luck on your journey as you travel down your road to success.

Have you ever caught yourself arguing just to argue? It’s a great way to hone your debating skills and diminish your mind power!

Have you ever noticed that arguments are rarely “won?” Even if you think you won an argument, what did you win? If there really is a loser, he at least learned something, right? What did you get?  Ego satisfaction, debating practice, and diminished mind power.

Arguing Diminishes Mind Power?

There are times when things need to be debated, but most of the time, it really isn’t productive. Do you want to argue the point? What do you get from a useless debate, and more importantly, what do you lose?

One thing is certain. A person listening to arguments can learn something from both sides, but what about the participants? If your opponent makes a really good point, do you say, “Hey, you’re right!” or do you more often just look for a better argument?

Arguing too much gets you in the habit of looking for arguments more than for truth. You also get deeper into your thinking ruts the more you defend a position.  In a rut and ignoring the truth?  If that doesn’t sound like it is good for mind power, it’s because it isn’t.

Mind Power From Listening

If you say the moon is closer, and I say the sun is, one of us has to be right. If you say nurture is more important, and I say nature is, we’re both right. The first argument has clearly defined terms. This isn’t common, and even here, what’s the point of arguing?

In the second example, our arguments have to do with values and experiences. We’ve seen different things in life, and we could spend a lifetime defining “important,” or I could shut up and listen. My mind becomes more powerful with the addition of your ideas and knowledge. Listening is the better way.

To break the habit of arguing, purposely ask for people’s opinions, and listen without saying anything. You can ask them to clarify, but don’t offer one contrary idea. Do this enough, and you’ll be surprised how much you learn. Some of us are also surprised by how difficult this simple technique can be, but it works.
