30 Best Quotes on Character Building

Oh, how I love quotes! I have been collecting them for 10 years
now and still counting.

During the years when I was living in solitude, quotes have served as my mentor. And reading the combination of words from the minds of great people, it stimulated me into meditating about my own life.  In a way, it helped me in my own self-discovery.

Those thoughts became my powerful propellants in understanding who I am.  As a result, those stimulated reflections created a strong sense of self-confidence and self-esteem within me.

We often think of our life in a negative way.  Then somehow, we get into this belief that life holds us back from experiencing our dreams.

In contemplating the quotes that I read, it led me to look at things on a different perspective.  It guided me in revelations that I did not even know about myself before.

In collecting beautiful quotes, they became my inspiration.  It helped me build a picture of myself with a vision that motivates me in seeing something good towards its conclusion.

So, as we focus on our thoughts as a means of self-discovery, we can create life goals and have allies to keep us focused when self-doubt inevitably creeps in.

An Introduction to Self-Discovery

Do you know that self-discovery is greatly dependent on whether you love yourself?

The term “Self-discovery” means identifying your nature and your needs to understand your dreams, fears, insights and true identity. Even though the word self-discovery may sound trivial, it is a significant process in learning of knowing one’s self.

Do you ever remember about a time when you dreamt about having a certain kind of life that after you finally achieve your desire, you still seemed to feel unhappy? Why do you think that is happening?

Let us discuss it now.

10 Steps to Attract the Life You Want

10 Steps to Attract the Life You Want

“What you seek is seeking you.”


If I told you that you could create the exact type of life circumstances you want, would you call me crazy?

What if your very thoughts could create ripples of change that not only impact your life…

…but those around you as well?

Philip, a call center worker from the Philippines certainly didn’t think so. He dreamed of moving overseas so he could secure a better life and provide for his family. 

But at every turn, his own mind shut down every opportunity he thought of. 

For instance, Philip considered seeing an immigration consultant, but he either “didn’t have the time” or “couldn’t afford it”.

So, he resented his situation and cursed himself (and the world) for his “bad luck”. 

He didn’t realize that the real culprit was his mindset – not his circumstances. 

And it seemed like the more he ruminated, the more bad things happened. 

Thus, he kept feeding the cycle of being stuck in a rut and feeling bad, trapping him even more.

That was, until his aunt Sara introduced him to the Law of Attraction.

Part 4: Inner Critic’s Role in Building Self-Confidence

Do you notice and listen to that tiny voice inside ourselves? Strange but it is true that you may succumb to a somber and mediocre way of life depending on how you respond to those promptings. There is no biological or scientific explanation to this voice, but we all hear them.

Do you know what your inner critic is telling you now?  Do you believe its validity?

In the last blog post, we talked about increasing your self-confidence. Today, we are going to deal on how your inner critic affects your self-confidence.

Do you notice and listen to that tiny voice inside ourselves?  Strange but it is true that you may succumb to a somber and mediocre way of life depending on how you respond to those promptings.  There is no biological or scientific explanation to this voice, but we all hear them.

Although there are two types of voices – one in a form of good motivation and the other stemming from fear.  The latter being an innate automatic response to protect us from hurt.  But ironically this inborn whispering voice would tell us that we are not good enough, we are worthless, or we cannot do anything right.  Sounds familiar?

Part 2: Building Self-Confidence

In the previous post, we talked about the signs of low self-confidence.  Today, we are going to go over several different ways that you can increase your self-confidence.

Even though we dream of being perfect and we see other people who appear self-confident and flawless, we must realize that no one can be perfect. We are all human and we all make mistakes all the time.  And I have to say, that is okay.  That is part of human nature.  We are here to experience life.

Do not be fooled!  Even the most confident people have their insecurities and the people who appear extremely self-confident are not perfect. Because no one is!

With age comes maturity and maturity comes from the experiences we go through.  Experience is one of the greatest teachers we have. And when we fail to learn from the experiences we encounter, that only keeps us reliving the same type of conditions over and over again.  Until we are ready to accept our current conditions and resolve to move past the disappointment, we would not be able tostop the cycle of self-defeat.

Part 1: Building Self-Confidence

Do you want to improve your self-confidence?  On this first part of a series of blog posts, you will learn valuable information on how you can successfully build your self-confidence and live life feeling strong, confident and self-assured.

On this post, I am going to talk about the signs of low self-confidence.  In identifying those signs, you will be able to recognize them and begin to conquer self-doubt.  While there is no single factor that leads to a lack of confidence, most often, it is the accumulation of negative experiences from our past, which we fail to deal with when they happen.  It is also the result of our failure to recognize who we truly are and what hinders our own growth.

A Letter To My 5-Year Old Self

This is a letter that I would write to my 5-year old self as an adult. Quite liberating having no child of my own.

My Dearest Mimi,

I am writing you this letter to first greet you a Happy birthday! You are 5 years old now and you have a brand new sister for the first time.

I know that you have been enjoying your mama and papa’s love all to yourself for 5 years now but they thought it will be more fun to have someone to share your childhood while growing up.

You will soon be going to school and will be meeting new friends – boys and girls your age.  I know that you will be a good friend to them.

And yet sometimes, no matter how kindly you treat others, there will be someone who will not like the way you talk, dress, smile, eat and even walk.

Don’t feel bad when they criticize you. You know yourself more than others see you.  Just keep on expressing your BEING MIMIyou are unique, you are created special.  Do not be swayed by others’ opinions just to please them.  You see, it will make you sad and tired if you keep on keeping up with what others expect of you.

Happiness: The Making of a Wonderful World

Do you know that Happiness is an obligation?

The great book, the Bible, stated a commandment, “You shall rejoice with all the good that the Almighty has given you.” (Deut 16-11).

This post is not about geographic destination travel per se, as most readers would probably expect, but relates on the lighter side of sojourn and journey in this time and place.

Not one of us can always stay happy all the time even when we get to travel around the world, have the most beautiful mansion or the coolest car in the entire planet. It requires a 180-degree turn in the way we look at things.  We can drive to the next country in our bucket list or just walk to the nearby town and feel fulfillment simply by beginning to change our mindset.
