Improve Your Self Image, Improve Your Business

How you see feel about yourself is vital to your success and happiness. You can achieve your desired goals with the right tools. A regular mental workout will keep your self image in shape.

Self Image

Most of us do not work on our self-image. We battle against it, disbelieving and ignoring its existence. However, it is closely connected to the success or failure of any undertaking. Self-image is your true opinion of yourself. History repeats itself when we do not attend to the needs of our self-image. Improve your self-image, by putting the following steps into practice, you will see amazing results.


Make a list of all the negative thoughts you have about yourself. Things like “I get up too late, I procrastinate, what if it doesn’t work?” etc. Then write another list including everything positive about yourself. Make this list longer than the first. Only use positive language. “I am a good listener, I am always on time” etc. Now convert your negative to positives. “I get up late” becomes “I can get up early”. This new list becomes your active List for Improvement.

Decide on your new self-image

Using your improvement list, create a new image for yourself. Regularly visualize yourself doing and being everything on your list. Vividly depict the areas of your life you are changing or improving. When you go to bed at night spend 5-10 minutes watching the new you. You may be thinner, happier, wiser, etc. These mental images retrain your self-image and reinforce your desires. The brain doesn’t differentiate between reality and what is vividly imagined. You can turn your desired images into reality. Decide your new image and get busy mentally creating it.

Focus on success

Keep a daily diary listing all your successes. As you progress the number of entries will grow. Your self-image will strengthen and mirror your list of improvements, positively reinforcing the new you.

Work in the Present

Many people dwell on past mistakes or worry about the future. NOW is the only moment you can control. Chris Widener says that time is more important than money. We can always make more money but never make more time. Move forward at a much faster pace by concentrating on what you can achieve now.

Have a ‘Life Plan’

Make your plan in three sections:

  • How I want to be. Write your list here and add a date when you will achieve each item.
  • What I want to have. Write a list of things you want to acquire, include photos, and the date you intend to have them.
  • What I need to do. Here write the plan of how you will achieve the above.

This is goal setting. Ensure your goals are genuine, realistic, and well defined.

There are numerous CDs and books devoted to goal setting. If you don’t have any I suggest you buy NOW.


“Every day in every way I am getting Better and Better”.

The fastest way to rejuvenate self-image is to reinforce it countless times daily. Have flashcards with you, on your desk, in the car, bathroom, next to the bed. Use short affirmations to trigger positive images in your mind.

Set aside time daily to work on your self-development. With a positive self-image, your strength will grow and your weaknesses diminish. Following the above involves self-discipline and a desire to achieve. Be focused and your self-image and business will soar.
