Self-Image

Each one of us has a picture of who we think we are in our minds. We also have a picture of what we want to be in the future, how we want our lives to turn out later on. I believe our experiences form our self – image. Now, our experiences can involve a lot of things, which include the families we come from and what we believe in, to mention but a few.

I strongly believe that our beliefs are the foundation for our self – image. Your dominant thoughts determine how you see yourself. All of us desire to see ourselves as successful people, to have a good image. We can have a good self – image by knowing what our Father in heaven, God says about when we study the Bible. You can’t go wrong when you base your self – image on who God says you are. As you spend time with God and experience Him, then you can see yourself in a better light.

I also believe that God already set us up to have a good self – image. I say so, because research says that each individual has a special ability which makes them stand out among ten thousand people. There is something you can do which no one else in your neighborhood can do. The sad thing is that few people have taken the time to find that special ability which they possess.

To build a great self – image you need to focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. Focus more on what you can do rather than on what you cannot do. Take time and write on a piece of paper positive qualities that you have. You can even ask people around you to tell you the things you are good at. Keep that record and use it daily to build your self – esteem.

Think and speak positive things from the word of God. Speak things like “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”, “I have it in me to be what I want to be”, “God is with me”, “God is helping me”, “God is guiding me”, “If God be for me, who can be against me?”, “I am in God’s hands”, “I am receiving right now all the power I need to meet life’s demands”, “the kingdom of God is with in me”, and finally “God is with me, and nothing can defeat me”.

You can also volunteer somewhere, mentor someone and help those who don’t have the same privileges as you do. All these will build up your self-image which I believe will give you self –confidence.
