Who do you see in the mirror?

woman-looking-in-mirrorIt has been said that it doesn’t matter what others think about you. What matters is what YOU think about yourself. How you think or perceive yourself if known as your self concept. Your self concept will determine your self esteem. And your self esteem will dictate how you live your life.
To get more out of life and to achieve your fullest potential, you must develop a good self image. And, this all starts with the way you think. Think of your thoughts as causes and your circumstances as effects. To change the effects you must change the causes. When you change the way you think about yourself, you will change the way you live. When you change the causes you will change the effects.

An old proverb says “as a man thinks in his heart so is he.” It doesn’t matter what friends or family says about you. They can all say that you have awesome potential and are capable of achieving anything. But if you don’t think that way about yourself it doesn’t matter what they say. It doesn’t even matter what God has to say about you. If you don’t see it, you won’t believe it. As another old saying goes “according to your faith be it unto you.” If you believe you are a failure and a hopeless mess, then that is how you will live your life. To become anything other than that, you must change the way you think about yourself.

So, here is what you can do:
1. Start your day with good mental protein. Read something inspirational or motivational for 30-60 minutes every day. What a person reads speaks volumes about them.
2. Look in the mirror every morning and say “I like myself” until you feel it.
3. Take control of your negative thinking. Your thinking is controllable only by you.

There are several other positive things you can do to boost your self image. And, I encourage you to read as much material as you can. There is so much available on the internet for free. To change the person in the mirror into the person they deserve to be, you must take action. Nothing just happens. To change your life you must start with changing the way you see yourself.
