Your Self Image And Success

Mar 28, 2008
People want to make money, and get rich, happy, etc. Many people have not scratched the surface of success, so they simply do not know that they must change to succeed. The biggest denominator that makes people succeed or fail is usually down to self image and values, and belief systems. Change the image, change the results.

The self image is a crucial subject. How you think of yourself determines who you think you are. For most materialistic people who have not looked at personally developing themselves do not realize that our beliefs determine our actions, and those actions will either take us to our goal or away from our goals.

Someone who is or has been on welfare, may have enjoyed the benefits of welfare, but has not realized the cost to how they view there own worthiness. The doctor with a doctor self image will treat patients and get them well, whereas a doctor with a poor self image may soon find they are looking for other occupations!

This may seem hard to grasp, especially if you think that there is some precarious higher power that dishes out abundance to whom it pleases. God helps those who help themselves.

Your image of yourself determines your values, and your actions. A doctor heals, whereas a soldier wants to save its own sides people, and eliminate the enemy. I remember speaking to a friend recently. When giving him brief coaching to help him get more out of life, I realized that even though he wanted more success, his self image was one of being one of the crowd; not to rise, and not to move forward on goals because of fear of ridicule. This type of self image destroys dreams, and if the self image is not changed, then the results stay same as today and yesterday.

Imagine going to another country, your choice of destination for a vacation. Where you are now, and where that destination is, is a different place. It requires changes. If you imagine a city suburb, and that is where you are, and your chosen destination is a tropical sunny place with great nature sceneries, then there must be changes! This is same with most people, change the self image, and change the result.

The key to change is awareness, and it begins with questions. Who am I? What am I? Who are my top 5 friends? What do I value most? Taking an inventory about yourself shows more about your self image.

The next step is to consider who you want to be? Look at role models, after all there must be someone who has achieved what you want to achieve. Take a look at what they do, how they do it. If you do not have immediate access to this person, then find their biography or as much information about them. Modeling your role model is a great way to get yourself in a position to think and act as they do.

Modeling the best is a great way to achieve the success you want to achieve. Your self image is a crucial part of the process of change. If you have not achieved a result before, then it is going to require change. As your self image changes, your thoughts change, your actions change, and ultimately you get the results you want.
