Article 52: Your Self Image Is Your Business Card!
As a person thinks so are they!
They say that “Image is everything!” and while that is true there a few words missing from that statement. It should read, “A Positive Self-Image is Everything!” We all have an image of ourselves but not all of what we see, think or believe is necessary what we want to portray. I’m not suggesting anyone should have an overestimated opinion of themselves or an unrealistic view but between those two pieces lays a vast area where all of us can comfortably live.
We all have positive attributes as well as areas under construction. The secret is to amplify, within yourself, all of the qualities you know are good while behind the scenes improving upon areas which are not up to your standard. Let the world see your positive characteristics through your smile, attitude and generous nature.
I’m not suggesting that you put on a façade which completely masks situations or trials you are experiencing but rather focus on the good which you have to offer. Once you do others will be quick to respond to you. How you see yourself is how you will live. If you want to live a poor, defeated life than just see yourself in that manner and you will fulfill that prophesy. However, the converse is also true. If you see yourself as prosperous and abundant than that life is also available to you.
In order to change your life, you have to change your focus. You must begin to believe that good things are coming your way, despite what you may be experiencing. You get to choose, each day, what you want to believe and how you want to live. Your choice will determine what type of outward demeanor you are portraying and ultimately the path your life will take.
Today is your day to take a look at yourself and know that you have value and much to offer to the people around you! Let your business card, self-image, be one that draws people and a positive future towards you!
