Even if your body and mind are ready, willing, and able to learn and do whatever is necessary to get the job done, a negative self-image may stop you.
Although we create many outward images of ourselves-so we can interact with or impress others and sell our ideas or services-we only have one self-image. The way we view ourselves determines the level of success we attain in anything. To achieve more success, some parts of our sense of self will have to change.
One of the most frequent questions I’m asked focuses on the issue of confidence, self-esteem, and self worth.
The important thing for anyone dealing with lack of confidence, or self-esteem issues is you must drill down to the core of your heart to find the real truth about you as a person.
The real truth is always much better than your truth about you.
Generally, the way others see you is much better than the way you see yourself. Change your self-paradigm and accept the truth about yourself – that is how you will begin to grow and achieve differently.
As your belief in yourself increases, so does your ability to accomplish anything your heart desires.
How others perceive you and how you perceive yourself are critical to your success and achievement.
How you act, talk, walk, dress, and present yourself have a direct affect on all aspects of your life.
Self-image can have a major influence on such things as finding a spouse, earning an impressive income, getting involved with life, and getting the maximum out of it.
What About You?
If you allow your negative self-image to dominate your life, it will affect all other areas of your life.
Because your inward and outward self-image will affect all other areas in your life, you will be a much happier, more fulfilled person when you
have the proper self-paradigm.
