Change: 30 Days of Abundance (Day 5)

Welcome to 30 Days of Abundance, Day 5! I’m delighted that you are here. Today I want to probe into how life-long learning and building skills are necessary to keep your self-esteem intact. Sheer Determination, Swimming Upstream in a Downstream World: Chapter 9 – Mirror, Mirror on the Wall.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall – the story of Joy and lack of self-esteem

If you are seeking change, first create change within yourself, instead of trying to change others.

Ask yourself this question, “What kind of change can I create so that goodness will spill out into the world?

Your AHA! Moment

You realize that you are taking steps to create a better world by reinventing yourself each day.

Reading this chapter out of my book brought back memories of Joy and her breathtaking beauty. I can’t help thinking what a role-model for women she could have been, only if she kept learning and developed the skills to match with her beauty. Here is my handpainted picture of Joy.

A Bonus Worksheet for You

I think doing personal inventory exercises are a powerful tool for personal growth. I’m sharing the form that I designed for myself. By filling in my answers on this form from time to time, I get so much clarity about who I am, my skills and what other things I want to learn. I hope that you’ll make your own Personal Inventory of your skills. Keep in mind, your answers can be very simple things that you do every day… Examples: I am good at making a banana cream pie, I am good at writing newsletters, etc. Be sure to give yourself credit for these things, not everyone can do them and certainly not as well as you!
