Main purpose of my life and of this blog particularly is to share information that may give an interesting clue or thought, accelerate your motivation or make you experience anew tool that bring a positive impact in your life. I am always happy to know what do you think about shared thoughts, stories or tools, especially if you experienced them and can share your outputs, results. Let's experience the best practices and principles of successful life together!
How to define value from principle?
Let me present the differences between values and principles, presenting my friends' (let's call her Anna) story. Anna says that the most important thing for her in relation is respect. How she behave, showing respect to others?
She do not interrupt her colleagues.
She try to understand others position. Not just presenting her point of view.
She accept people as they are and do not try to change them
So, in case of Anna, what do you think is value and what do you think is principle?
Values reflect important things in our lives, that do not have a physical form, but present a high level of value.
Principles reflect a certain way of behavior.Principles help us to be aware about HOW we act.
So, in case of Anna, as you've already understood, "respect"- is value and "no interrupting" is principle.
In conclusion, if you want to understand easier what are you talking about (value or principle) just check it by the questions:
- is it about "how to behave/act"? (principle)
- or is it about "what is important for you?" (value)
It's super important to acknowledge people that contribute to your development and achievements! That is why I would like to thank people periodically for who am I today!
Jian Reza - is my teacher of Swedish courses. She is amazing, super energetic and very fair person! I feel our group very lucky that we have such a teacher, because It's super interesting to come for dynamic lessons (by the way, our lessons are almost half of the usual working day) and learn by discussing new concepts of Swedish society! She also sometimes organize our visits to museums or libraries and help new comers to integrate faster! I am very thankful for her energy, help to be included in society and her fair attitude to everybody!

Today is my Birthday and I feel me super happy to be surrounded by my lovely family, friends and all other people I met on my life path. Today, I am turning 28 and I experience so much love to all special people in my life and feeling happiness to be who am I and be where am I today.
What makes my life full of meaning, happiness and love is the principle of given and receiving.
I would like to share this on my personal example, since it could also make somebody happier!
Every time I am part of a project or organization, or group of people I always ask myself which value I can give to what we do together and also people, who involved in this. I can't say I always succeed, but I learn to put put my energy in everything I do, as it could be the last time. The fascinating think is that you have enough energy and resources to add value and make people around you feel special!
For example, I was doing a lot of volunteering, since I saw how training could make other p…

1. Inna Gurinova - is one of my best friends from former colleagues, that was always super straight about things and honestly presented her point of view. She is an amazing mom and friend, ready to give you a hand of help, good advice and a doze of positive motivation!
