You might not accept it, yet know that your destiny and your self-image are connected. Self-image is how you see yourself and it is the mental picture that you have of yourself that has been created by numerous self-impressions that have been built up over time. It will encompass your physical attributes as well as your personal characteristics, traits, and abilities.
Your self-image also incorporates how you view and assess your strengths and weaknesses. This assessment of your abilities, attributes, and characteristics form a collective representation of who you are at your core and how you see yourself, it becomes your self-image. Your self-image includes:
- What you think you look like
- How you view your abilities
- How you view your personality traits
- What you believe others think of you
Let’s look at the relationship between self-esteem, and self-confidence and how they relate to self-image. Yes, they are all different yet they do have elements that are closely tied to one another.
- Self-image is how you see yourself and how you believe others see you.
- Self-esteem is your opinion of your own worth.
- Self-confidence is the assurance you have in you and your knowledge, judgment, and abilities.
They are all closely connected because if you have a poor image of yourself, you will have low self-esteem or self-worth, and not be confident in yourself. Conversely, the opposite is true for high-esteem and high self-confidence. People respond to you according to how you portray yourself. A positive self-image will take you much quicker to your purpose and destiny.
When you start to build your image of who you are where it will represent you at your best you are on the road to your destiny. Self-image is not to be taken lightly and you can’t afford to put in on the backburner. If you want to be a person who accepts the responsibility that you are here to serve others with the gifts you were given you have to learn how to have a healthy and strong sense of your self-image and allow it to lead you to your destiny.
Until the next time my friend, take good care and be well.
