strategies to help you build up yourself with a positive and healthy self-image. 

It’s awareness of your habits, emotional tendencies, needs, desires, strengths, and weaknesses.

Reaching your full potential is dependent on the creation and maintenance of a healthy self-image.

It’s not possible to be highly successful if you don’t believe in yourself.

The way you view yourself is either uplifting or a hindrance.

Regardless of your childhood experiences, past failings, or current level of self-esteem, you can possess a healthy self-image.

Those that lack self-awareness may find life to be frustrating.

Respect Yourself and BELIEVE You Can Do Great Things.

1. Overcome Any Limiting Beliefs. 

Think about something you’d like to accomplish, but are unable to do because of a limiting belief.

Make a list of how that belief is negatively impacting your life and focus on how much your life would be enhanced if you were able to remove this belief from your life.

Create five affirmations you can repeat to yourself throughout the day.

The affirmations should be stated in the positive and address the new belief you’d like to install.

"I AM..."

"I AM..."

"I AM..."

"I AM..."

"I AM..."

2. Take Full Responsibility For Your Current Situation.

Is it your fault that your parents mistreated you or that your boss is a jerk?

Of course not, but no one else is going to fix the situation. 

It’s all on you. When you take responsibility, you have control.

Self-esteem is elusive when you believe you don’t have control over your life.

Are any of my past mistakes keeping me from living the life I desire? What do I need to do to make amends for these mistakes and move on from them?

3. Take A Step Each Day Toward Your Ideal Self.

We all have a vision of the person we’d like to be. That ideal version of ourselves might seem too far away to even consider, but take a small step each day.

Each small improvement will raise your self- image.

Start today by listing all the qualities you’d like to have.

One reason why it’s often hard to accept yourself is because of the voice inside you that tells you, “You’re not good enough."

However, it’s possible to completely change your self-talk to say positive things instead of negative. Imagine how uplifting it can be when your self-talk encourages you all day long!

It’s easy to feel selfish when all of your thoughts and activities are centred on yourself.

Spend part of your time enhancing the lives of others.

Demonstrate to yourself that you’re a good person.

5.Manage Your Self-Talk.

We all talk to ourselves... me included - you’re not the only one!

What does your self-talk say to you throughout most of each day?

The greatest thing about this is that we can control what we say to ourselves.

Is your self-talk positive or negative?
Negative self-talk chips away at your feelings of self-worth.
Be kind to yourself.
Be encouraging, positive, and patient.

6. Recognise The Small Victories. 

It’s not necessary to earn a million dollars or lose 10kgs or even 20kgs before you have the right to feel proud and excited.

Any progress is worthy of recognising!!

Large successes are the culmination of many smaller successes.. resulting from daily action.

7. Get started on the bigger projects in your life.

Your self-image is damaged when you fail to control yourself.

Big projects are intimidating - focus on getting started.

Take at least a few minutes each day to tackle the bigger goals in your life.

Sustained progress is the key.

We all have different skills and talents.

It’s unfair to compare yourself to other people. You’re doomed to be either too hard or too easy on yourself.

Compare yourself to your past.
Are you doing better than you were last month?

When you can consistently answer “yes,” you’ll be well on your way to maximising your self-image.

Add Value To Yourself, And Your Self-Image Will Flourish. 

Final Thoughts

Begin to build your healthy self-image today.

Regardless of your past or current impressions of yourself, you can learn to view yourself in a more positive light.

A healthy self-image is the springboard to happiness and success.

Focus on the small victories in your life and be proud of your progress. You deserve to be successful and happy!
