How to discover your own beauty
It can be rather confusing to be born into this world as a tiny human being, raised in a family structure in a community, in a country in some part of the world and through all these influences, to finding your own path and discover the beauty of it all.
How we manage balancing our own life, especially depends on how we were influenced by our parent’s way of conducting their lives and behaviours in our youngest years. Their way to have handled situations can have deep impact and end up being our own obstacles without even knowing why.
In my part of the world in the Nordic countries, people are being matured and bullied with the Jante law through most of our life, from both a good and bad perspective. The good part is that the democracy in our countries is based on nobody is more worth than others. The backside is when people who ought to support you is expressing this law out of context, in families, political etc. Read the Jante law below.
Your personal foundation ought to be filled with love and support so that you as a young self-confident person walk out in the society and learn even more during your youth, starting up your own life. But if you haven’t had the caring guidance and support from maybe other generations in your family, you might only have a weak picture of who you are yourself. Even worse, you might not even know that being alive is a beautiful loving miracle.
It is a very good idea to use some well-known tools for navigating around in our life. Some that have been used since man started watching the moon. Other having been developed later in the modern world’s work’s cultural perspective.
What I’m thinking of here is especially knowing of the zodiacs and the Typology Tests just to mention a few.
Knowing about the zodiacs can be a great advantage when you meet new people. Ask what zodiac they are, tell what you are and you already get a nice framing on personalities communicating from a much more open perspective.
Getting to know yourself through your personal horoscope, analysed by a skilled astrologer, can be like entering a screenplay where you are the author and director to choose how the play has to be performed, depending on your free will.
I have been subscribing daily updates on my zodiac for more than a year and already learned a lot – about myself! I must admit I start to daring to get my own full horoscope done in the nearest future.
I met the Jung Myers-Briggs tools in the corporate world, in several jobs. As it is a very popular tool to make team building, for getting people to perform better. It’s a great tool to let people understand that we all perform in individual perspectives, but we can all get categorized. These are good tools from an HR perspective in a company where the strength is to get as many different people as possible in your organisation. If you only have a bunch of regimented people you have a weak organisation.
I had a very good experience with one of the companies I worked in for several years, as I discovered that my CEO was in the exact same category as me. That mend I suddenly knew him a lot better, as we would have the same approach and mind-set around things.
Where I have also learned a lot, is through listening to the wise people who are sharing their knowledge on YouTube. I’ll give you a list of my favourite channels below. Lee Harris is giving insights on Energy and how it feels and why. With Ralph Smart you can feel alive. The Ask Teal (Teal Swan) video series takes questions deep and inherent within our human experience and answers them eloquently and very concisely.
Having a good indication on yourself and the people around you, can be a great support to understand some more of this amazing world and its amazing population. It makes life much more fun, and to discover the beauty in others is to discover the beauty of yourself.
Best wishes of your Health, Wealth and Happiness

Notes on the Jante law
Jante law, expression, derived from the Danish-Norwegian author Aksel Sandemose from his novel A Fugitive Crosses His Tracks (1933, then. 1938). Herein depicted family and provincial press on a growing boy.
- You shall not believe that you are something.
- You must not think you are just as much as us.
- You must not think you are smarter than us.
- You must not delude yourself that you’re better than us.
- You must not think you know more than us.
- You shall not believe you’re more than us.
- You shall not believe that you pigeons to something.
- You must not laugh at us.
- You must not believe that someone cares about you.
- You shall not believe you can teach us something.
Repression and petty summarized in the law of Jante, modelled over the Ten Commandments. Central is the commandment: “You shall not believe that you have something”. The frequent use of the term implies that the Jante law is entered into as part of the Nordic ironic self-image, and the often quoted as expressing commune pressure and limitation of the individual.
The social rules of play, which is a specific codification of the law of Jante, can with an anthropological angle be seen as the result of a general Nordic caution when it comes to highlight its own or praise other people’s happiness. Its roots can be traced to the old Nordic notion that happiness is ensured through certain precautions; through the modest behaviour avoids others envy, while on the other hand, “pride is in charge of the case”.
