People often confuse Self Esteem and Self Confidence. Many assume they’re simply just two different words for the same thing, but this isn’t true. You can have a lot of self-esteem and minimal self-confidence. The opposite is also true.
Having both is important. You’ll be more successful, happier in general, and happier with yourself if you can cultivate both qualities. Therefore it is important to fully understand the differences between the two.
Learn to focus on systems instead of goals. You might understand the power of setting a goal, but that’s just the beginning. A goal is where you want to end up, but it doesn’t tell you how to get there. Creating systems that move you toward success is the real path to success.
For example, a successful business always has a system for generating sales. There are sales goals, but the system is what moves the company toward that sales goal.
Metaphysical Humanism is the philosophy that man is responsible for his own condition and outcome in life. He or she is free to be, think and create independently of the creator of the universe.
Most religions put forth the belief that man is controlled by his creator like a puppet, however, that realm of thought invalidates the intellect of the creator.
I was raised in a Christian family and have always had the understanding that God created man in his own image, that God is a spiritual being, and that he only creates perfection.
