Self Esteem– Two words that pack a powerful meaning. A meaning so powerful it can either ruin your life or make it the most fulfilling possible. Fortunately we are able to choose but most people allow it to choose them. You see, our brain does what we tell it to do. If we wallow in self loathing and consistently pick at ourselves, the subconscious tells us that we are nothing and sadly, we believe it. Once we’re so focused on the negative, it’s hard to think about the positive.
However, if we repeatedly remind ourselves of all the blessings we have and pay attention to the wonderful attributes we possess there’s no telling how far we’ll go in the future. Confidence goes a long way, and once you understand that, NOTHING anyone says will stop you! When others try to force their pessimism on you, realize that it’s their own insecurities being projected. Also know that somewhere else in the world a person wasn’t granted the opportunity to see another day but YOU were. Every waking moment is a chance to turn things around, so look at your reflection in the mirror tell yourself you are perfectly fine and success is on the way. You will be happy you did later 🙂
I’m doing an all call for inspirational quotes, videos, short blogs, and articles that relate to improving self-esteem, and developing a positive body image and sense of self. We’re calling it Self-Concept Thursdays! Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org using Self-Esteem as the subject line.
