Psychologists claim that the number one problem that people experience constant confrontation with is how they think of themselves.
Are people actually wrestling with the concept of understanding themselves? To say the least, generally people illustrate the level of their self-esteem by how much they attempt to change the outward appearance rather then focusing on their inner self. How you feel about yourself is 20% exterior and 80% interior.
A person’s house can look immaculate on the outside, but unfortunately, people do not live outside of their homes. Feeling good about yourself begins with how you feel internally. If you place all your stock on your exterior, your self-esteem is actually unhealthy. What if you:
- gained 50 pounds
- engaged an on-coming vehicle while driving your car and your face was severely scarred
- your health quickly deteriorated leaving you physically incapacitated
Since how you feel about yourself is mainly based on your physical appearance, if any of these three things occurred it would drive your self-esteem in the basement.
Doing well in life and making the kind of money you would really like to make is directly linked to how you feel about yourself. You can improve your environment if you improve your self-esteem. Never underestimate the power of a healthy self-esteem.
Being positive about life, your future, and your potential is all the reason why you should feel good about yourself. Your past may be tainted, but your future is spotless!
