Find Your Own Treasures & Share Them To Benefit !!

Use the treasures you have in a practical way and you'll find benefit. 
Check what treasures you have that you could share with others. It could be the treasure of happiness, of love or of clear thinking. Check if you are using any of the treasures for your own benefit or that of others. 
Each day begin the day with a thought to use the treasure that you have discovered for yourself. Remind yourself that the more you give the more it'll grow. Continue using your treasures in this way and bring benefit to all.

Set The Right Example For Others To Follow !!

Become a constantly awakened lamp that brings light into the darkness. 

When things don't happen the right way, check what kind of thoughts you are having. Do you think, 'things don't happen the right way anymore... or people are like this anyway...' etc. 

Tell yourself everyday, 'I am the lighted lamp which dispels the darkness around. When I show people the right way, everything will be all right too. I have to set the right example to those around me.'

Know Your Real Value, Not From Outside, But Inside !!

If you set your sense of self worth (value) on your position, pay and material possessions, you will not have real self-esteem. All of these things come and go, sometimes at the most unexpected moments. This is why almost every single human being from corporate leaders to househusbands, from Kings to college students are not able to have constantly high self esteem. We are all taught by our society, that worth (value) is measured by rank, quantity of possessions and the amount of monetary (financial) income. Dangerous! It creates a life of sorrow and unhappiness mixed with temporary happiness. You cannot allow your self-esteem to be defined by your work, your capabilities at work, your salary level etc. True internal self-esteem comes for realizing the self as a soul and experiencing its virtues (qualities) and specialties. 

What external factors is your self-esteem based on? If real wealth is not money or possessions what is real wealth? What could you start doing tomorrow that may help you transfer your sense of self esteem from something you do or have outside yourself, to something that you are inside?

Make Strong Thoughts And Change Would Seem Easier !!

Bring about true change with a firm promise to yourself to change. When you find that there is a need for you to change some aspect in yourself, check how strong your thought is. Check if your words are 'I'll try to change or is it I promise to myself I will change.' Take any aspect that you would like to change in yourself and take a firm promise to really bring about the desired change. Also remind yourself of your promise each day so that it is further strengthened.
