What Does Your Self-Image Allow You To Do?

 

A true story about me.
My dad told all of his kids to be “C” students and “A” workers.  Because of this I did not realize I was capable of being an “A” student until I reached college.  Once I had this realization my grades instantly improved as a result of a change in my self-image. 
 
What is Your Story?
What do you believe about yourself?  What does your self-image tell you that you are capable of achieving? Or, not achieving? Do you see yourself as a leader and a person who is in charge of his life?  Does your internal self-image tell you that you are an “A” player or do you have self limiting beliefs that are holding you back?
 
What Maxwell Maltz Said:
Maltz, who wrote “Psycho Cybernetics” postulated that our internal self-image (vs. external self-image) is what drives us.  To quote him, “Our self-image strongly held, essentially determines what we become.”  My interpretation is this means we shouldn’t be judgmental about who we are, but accept and take ownership of it.  That leads us to the next question.
 
What Can You do About Your Self-Image?
Step 1 is acceptance without judgment.  In our culture this can be difficult. It means you must get beyond your own prejudices about yourself.  Once you achieve this, you can start on the process of recreating your self-image so it better supports you in achieving the things you want.
