The worldview, in my understanding, is a system of outlook on life that determines the behavior and, ultimately, the fate of each person. The German philosopher Novalis said that “fate and character are different names for the same concept.” I think the same can be said about the worldview. It is the worldview that creates a certain picture of the world, that prism through which a person looks at this life, communicates with people, and builds his future.
Each person has his own picture of the world. It develops thanks to many factors – upbringing, the example of parents, their own life experience, and the influence of favorite books and films. Of course, the worldview changes over the years, as a person accumulates life experience. It was not without reason that A. Pop said that “each person is different from the other, and every day is different from himself.”
However, it seems to me that by the age of eighteen people already have fully developed outlooks on life, and we can safely talk about his worldview.
So what is my worldview? The question is quite complex, it makes you think, “dig into yourself.” I think the basis of my life views is the conviction that a person creates his own life, his own destiny. One of my favorite aphorisms is the words of Helvetius: “People are not born, but become who they are.” I think that is exactly the case. And there are a lot of examples of people who “made themselves”, contrary to the most adverse life circumstances, from the writer M. Gorky to the actor and governor A. Schwarzenegerr or billionaire R. Abramovich.
The main thing is to determine, set a goal and clearly follow it. So what do I want to achieve in life? My “goal number one” is to become a high-class professional, a very high level lawyer. My future profession is now perceived ambiguously, I think it is largely discredited. But at its core, the legal profession is very necessary and useful. It is the lawyers who guard the Law, the unshakable pillar that must determine the life of people in a civilized society.
To ensure that our existence is regulated exclusively by law, that the rights of a citizen are always protected and that he feels calm and confident in his native country, and throughout the world — that is the duty of a real lawyer. And I strive to become just such a professional, to do the right and respected business, to really help those who need it.
Of course, my plans are to become a wealthy person. Money gives a feeling of freedom, allows you to make dreams come true, gives you the opportunity to develop and improve. But, in my opinion, you cannot put money above everything and go to them (as, indeed, to any goal) at any cost.
In my opinion, “at the forefront” should be moral values, which a person should be guided in any life situations. These values are instilled in us in the family and in society, they are extremely simple and, at the same time, eternal. Their basics are described in the Bible and repeated thousands of times in world literature. “Do not kill”, “do not steal”, “honor your father and mother”, “love your neighbor as yourself” – this, in my opinion, is the basis of the outlook of any normal person.
If you try to comply with these principles, then he will be provided with peace of mind and inner peace. And this, it seems to me, is a guarantee that he will achieve everything he wants in life. And I want continuous development and self-improvement in all areas of life. After all, the main trouble for a person is a halt in development, which in the modern world, where mad rhythms and speeds reign, is like death. No wonder wise people say that stagnation in development is equal to a retreat, degradation.
I think that it is worth constantly improving yourself not only in the profession, but also in your intellectual, cultural development. You need to constantly read, learn something new, to become better. Of course, you should think about your physical development – go in for sports, monitor physical fitness. I think this is especially true for me in connection with my profession.
But development also requires the mental sphere of man. For me, it is closely connected with close people who surround me. Now these are my parents and relatives who need my care and attention. I believe that a real man is obliged to take care of his family, in every possible way to support loved ones.
In the future I plan to have my own family – my beloved wife and children. I think it will not be so soon, because in order to raise children, a strong base is required – not only material, but also moral, psychological. And for this you need to grow up, “stand firmly on your feet.”
Thus, I believe that a person needs simple things – in his beloved deed, which will bring moral and material satisfaction, in a strong loving family with children, in the opportunity to enjoy the world every day in which he lives.
However, a person should take an active public position, because, in fact, each of us creates the world in which he lives. Therefore, we ourselves must do our present and provide a future for our children. It is then that a person will be able to be just a person – a conscious being, clearly aware of his goals and systematically striving for their implementation.
