The following are excellent personal development principles that will give you a better insight on how you can start taking action on changing your attitude of mind and with that, your life:
The impact of my decision to live the Ten Principles was monumental. The more I tried to live the principles, the better I felt. The better I felt, the more I wanted to live the principles. I had created a positive feedback loop that was self-reinforcing.
There were still challenges in my life, of course; now, however, I was able to tackle them with a positive attitude, and that seemed to make all the difference. Little by little my attitude improved, and as my attitude improved, I began to enjoy my life more and more.
We all go through difficult situations in life. If you’re in a tough place right now, choose one of the principles above and set a goal to practice it as well as you can over the next month.
This might not immediately change your circumstances, but you will likely find that changing your attitude slowly but surely changes your life.
I call these rules The Ten Principles of Personal Development. They are, in no particular order:
- Be loving toward everyone you meet.
- Forgive all who attempt to harm you.
- You become what you think.
- Look for ways to strengthen those who have less than you have.
- Always seek knowledge and truth.
- Always be honest.
- Never waste what you are given.
- Be grateful for all that you have.
- Develop a spirit of optimism.
- Have faith in something greater than yourself.
Once I identified the Ten Principles, I needed a way to make them a part of my life. So I studied some more. What I found is that the best way to make something a part of your life is to set a goal and follow through on it.
