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?

  1. She do not interrupt her colleagues.
  2. She try to understand others position. Not just presenting her point of view.
  3. 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)

Thanking the ones, that bring the impact in my life!

Hey, periodically I write about people that I feel very thankful, because they contribute to who I am today! They make me feel happier and show me a better world and many interesting opportunities around! Saying this, I would like to  mention in this article:

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! I always felt that Inna can come up with a strong opinion about things, having wise arguments behind it!  No matter how far we are now, I am always feeling very happy when we talk  or call each other!

2. Zanda Saulite - is my today's colleague from Swedish courses and neighbor. I like her critical mind and very sharp humor! Zanda always gives  supportive hints during our experience of studding new language, since she knows it quite better then me. She can als…

Trust in yourself is a habit!

Lots of people would be able to achieve better results in their daily life, if they trusted themselves! Unfortunately, in many cases we do not believe 100% that we can achieve what we want. Our thoughts stop us to succeed!
   The good news is that we can change this! Trusting yourself is a habit and could be developed through repetition! Since we feel unsure in 2 cases:
1) when we experience something for the first time, we deal with something unknown.
2) when we experienced something negative previously  and have to repeat similar experience.

For example, when you have to talk in front of the audience, your emotions defined by previous experiences. If you didn't had the supportive audience before - you will feel very insecure or even stressed. Have you ever noticed that people, that have been supported by their family in childhood, feels more self confident and sure when they talk about something or take actions? It's because they have positive experience and are not afra…

Хочу построить новое отношение к лидерству, которое будет развивать наше общество и принесет пользу, вы со мной?

Несмотря на то, что о лидерстве (с англ. leadership) написано и рассказано много, тем не менее, то качество лидерства, которое мы наблюдаем сегодня в политике, в бизнесе, в школах и других сферах, оставляет желать лучшего. Мы видим лидеров, которые верят лишь в свою правоту, но которые мало пекутся об общем благе. Мы видим лидеров, которые проплачивают СМИ, лишь бы их правда была услышана, но которые не пекутся о милосердии и процветании общества. Мы видим лидеров, демонстрирующих, что они знают больше или , вернее, что (по их мнению)лучше, но не пытающихся поддержать и научить других. Мы видим тех, кто готовы спорить, но не желающих понять других. Мы видим тех, кто готов обвинять в неудачах кого угодно (предшественников, последователей), но не готовых взять ответственность на себя разрешить создавшуюся ситуацию!
   Это ли те лидеры, которым мы хотим доверить свое будущее и за которыми мы хотим идти?
   Лично я хочу более благоразумных лидеров, тех, которые не просто готовы предп…
