“What would you say if you were asked to describe yourself? What words would you choose? Who do you say you are? It matters. It is important how you define yourself. Your self image determines how your experience life and whether or not you reach for your goals.
Maxwell Malts, the author of Psychocybernetics, has said, ‘Our self image, strongly held, determines what we become.’ and ‘Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.’ He further pointed out that, ‘Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.’
Researchers have stated that how much a person values oneself can be assessed by the first five words one selects to answer this question. If your word choices are negative adjectives consider changing how you think about yourself. Stop thinking of yourself in less than glorious terms and find those things about you that you can appreciate.
You will benefit greatly by focusing on those things that mean you are special, unique and wonderful. Maltz stated, ‘The ‘self-image’ is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.’
Take a little time each day to find those things about yourself you are grateful for. Look at those areas you can be proud of and reflect on them. Perhaps, business isn’t going so well but you are a marvelous homemaker. Maybe you are a great Dad or Mom. You might be poor at certain sports but great at math.
Take time to make sure you view yourself in the best possible ways. Learn to accept, like and love yourself especially in those moments when you you might not feel like. Realize there are so many more positive aspects to you than you may have ever realized. Take the time to discover what they are and empahsise them. Focus on them. As you do this daily will find it makes an incredible positive difference for you” Rex Sikes
