How Do You See Yourself?
How do you see yourself? Is your self-image mostly good, or are you your own worst critic? The way you see and think about yourself can have a huge impact on your future. Do you remember the story of The Little Engine That Could? The odds were stacked against that little engine, but he kept telling himself, “I think I can… I think I can…” In the end, his positive attitude won the day. He believed that he could do what he needed to do, and he did it. Do you think the story would have had the same ending if he’d said, “I know I can’t because I’m a loser”? Probably not.
The bottom line is that the way you see yourself has a huge impact on how you move through the world. If you have confidence in your abilities, you will move confidently through the world. If you beat yourself up all the time and spend your days telling yourself how awful you are, you are going to move through the world like someone who’s already been defeated. Your lack of confidence will show in your body language, your tone of voice, your energy level, and even the amount of effort you put into what you do.
The good news is that EVERYDAY is it new opportunity to make a different choice of how you see yourself and how you can change YOUR OWN WORLD because of it.
