The power of self-image is incredible. How you think about your self and your capabilities can actually be a deciding factor on what are and can deliver. While most people have self-image, often this poses as a limiting factor. We have built-in fears, apprehensions and doubts about our capability, which could have deep roots in the way we have been brought up, our life experiences, past rejections, and so on. Many past events and people can irreparably damage our sense of self-esteem and the way we look at ourselves. Once you realize this basic truth, half your problem is solved! It is important to understand, that most of the changes which we want in life can be best brought about by ourselves. In other words, the solution lies within the problem, within us. Lack of good opinion about yourself and the subsequent mental blocks is the only thing which often comes between you and success, money, harmony in relationships and finally lasting happiness. Yet one has to be cautious when thinking of improving self-image. Watch out, so that you do not become another “I”-specialist – someone who has such a high level of self-image that he thinks he is the only person who is right and the rest of the world is wrong or worthless. Improving self-image has to be moderated to the extent that you are patient, understanding and compassionate – yet think that you can succeed in almost anything, provided you put your mind to it. In short, there is no place for the word ‘impossible’ which exists in your dictionary.
Why is having a positive self-image important? Because only then, you can take on more challenges of life and succeed. Bible says: God helps those who help themselves. This can not be possible with out a well-nurtured and mature self-image. Life is full of surprises and obstacles – both in the professional and personal front. If you harbor a poor self-image, you would continuously think that none of these challenges can be met or overcome. This in turn can result in serious damage to your personal and career growth. Remember, whatever you think of yourself, is also reflected and communicated to the world through non-verbal communication. Surely you have met people, who have shifty eyes, who fumble and fidget, and are hardly comfortable in an unforeseen situation. Yet there are people who not only look calm and collected but exude an air of infectious enthusiasm round them. We call them charismatic. These are the people who are leaders in whichever field they belong to. Their firm beliefs, the values they hold and the confidence they have in what they do make them attract followers or fans wherever they go. The secret behind their deportment is a confident and healthy mind which results in a positive self-image.
The only thing constant and permanent in life is change. Situations, people, work and home environment - everything is constantly changing. If you have a positive self-image, you quickly adapt to change – a critical factor to succeed. If you have noticed people overcome physical handicaps, another factor which damages self-image, and participate even in Olympics and win Gold for their country. With a well-tuned self-image, you can overcome any obstacle, which may come your way in life and career.
Can any one be trained to have an improved self image? The answer is a firm YES. In our institute, we conduct a popular and well-admired program named “You Can Do the Impossible”, which is designed as a participative and demonstrative session, where, we show you how you can actually achieve what you imagined to be ‘impossible’. We do this by simply elevating your self-image, so that you think beyond the set limits of the mind. All the barriers between you and achievement are in the mind, and as the famous song goes: Free Your Mind…And the Rest Will Follow. Nothing can be truer than this statement, especially when it comes to improving or expanding your self-image.
