Hear me out!
First, let me ask you a question.
What story have you been telling yourself, about yourself?
In this story you tell about yourself, what role are you playing in the story?
Are you the hero conquering the villain?
Or are you playing victim?
Is the story a warm hearted story?
Or is it a tragic story full of sorrow and despair?
The story you tell yourself about yourself is based on your self-image.
In fact, the story is your self-image.
Your self-image is how much you like yourself and believe in yourself.
Your self-image is a product of past experience, success & failure. Where you grow up. The family value you grow in.
The traditional believe you inherited. Other people opinion you except as true.
Throughout all this experience, you build a picture of yourself, which you believe to be true.
The picture you carry of yourself maybe fault and in most cases, it is fault.
But since you believe it to be true and you think and act as if it is true, by all mean, the effect is true.
As Harry Ford put it, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you‘re right.”
Now, if this story you tell yourself was a healthy, success story that would have been great.
But we all know, for most people, it is not the case.
For most people, it is a story full of tragic, despair and fear of all sorts.
But here is the good news.
Change the story and you change the outcome.
How can you do that? You may ask.
And here is how__
Frank Outlaw provided the best answer.
He put it this way, “Watch your thoughts; they become your words; Watch your words; they become your actions; Watch your action; they become your habits; Watch your habits; they become your character; Watch your character for it will become your destiny.”
When doubt comes, as they will, just remember to watch your thought, words and action.
When fear comes, as they will, just remember to watch your thought, words and action.
Do this things and a new healthy version of you will begin to take form.
Do it long enough and you will totally change your current self-sabotaged story.
Persist without giving up until you become the embodiment of the best version of you.
Make sure you surround yourself with people that have your best interest in heart and actually lift you up. Cut out everyone that pull you down.
Remember, you are a direct reflection of the top 5 people you spend most time with.
Choose your company carefully.
I hope you got some value out of this.
