Your Self-Image - How Is It Working for You?
"All that you desire or require is already on your pathway, but you must be wide awake to your good to bring it into manifestation." - Florence Scovel Shinn
Whether you are a professional secretary, a nurse, a vice-president in a large corporate organization; a creative arts director, or an attorney, as a total individual, you must always strive for self- improvement. Your personal image is what sets you apart from all others. Your image speaks for itself and has a lot to do with the way others see you.
Imagine how you feel when you ?..
> Treat others with respect. Extend courtesy. Show consideration. Be kind. Know yourself and how you'd feel if you were in the same situation and required assistance from someone else. Whenever you feel tempted to criticize another person-- today, tomorrow, or next week-- realize that criticisms are like homing pigeons, they always come back to peck you.
> Take charge of your life. Knowing what you want to achieve, and setting out to fulfill even a minor goal leads you down the right road to a life filled with successes. Having the courage to go for your goals requires you to act from a position of strength.
And in order to achieve your desired result, your goal must be worthy. Do not become discouraged when a specific goal isn't successful. It takes lots of practice to get it right. The important point is that you acted.
> Work smarter, not harder; be more efficient, not faster, and always strive to be better, and avoid carelessness. Do not dwell on past mistakes. Be aware of what you did incorrectly and learn from it. Then avoid repeating the same mistake the next time.
Try not to blame others for your faults. No one else is responsible for your actions--not what you feel, not what you do, or what you say, or how you react in any situation. Take each new day as it is given to you. Learn to create a pleasant experience for yourself and for others.
> Accept and initiate change. If something isn't working, find a better way to complete the task--don't give up. Doing tasks the same old way may work for a time, but if there's a way it can be done more efficiently, try a different method. And a more effective way may be discovered. After all, there is no right way and no wrong way to do a task?.it may just be whatever feels right to you.
Respect for yourself and others. In building your self-image, courtesy, taking charge of your life, and working smarter are all good habits to develop. Your life may improve when you practice these habits daily. Then find others to add to the list. You'll be amazed at how good it makes you feel.

Launch Yourself Into Living
Memorial Day weekend, 2004, found my wife and I along with friends, relaxing in a nice camp setting in Hershey, Pennsylvania. We had a great time at the Hershey Factory Tour Experience, which included, among a dozen other attractions, an excellent 3D movie presentation which wasn't quite like a movie at all, but a true experience, complete with misters and blowers that would alternately sprinkle you with a fine spray of water or tickle your ankles with a subtle burst of air, in concert with events happening on screen.
