How You View Yourself, Matters

How you view yourself, matters. What you see when you look in the mirror determines whether you fly or whether you crumble. Don’t believe me? Well in that case, try your best to think of a successful person that has a weak self image. Can’t do it? That’s what I thought.

“Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.”

Think of every successful person that you know, from the rich and the famous to the people that you see on a daily basis. Now ask yourself, what trait(s) do all these folks have in common? You’ll soon realize that high self-esteem and a strong self image is at the very top of the list.

Therefore, you need to increase the light you see yourself in.

Leave people’s perception of you alone. Focus on forming your own perception of yourself. Your past is dead and gone.

Base your self-image not off of what occurred, but base it off of what is going to occur. Base your self-image off of your potential, not your failures. After you do, begin to approach life with a cocky, arrogant, and strong minded demeanor. Uncage the fucking lion within and let your glow cast its light on the entire globe.

Hold a picture in your mind of your ideal self and never let it go.

“Our self image, strongly held, essentially determines what we become.”

See a warrior in the mirror and you will become a warrior in real life.

See a failure in the mirror and you will become a failure in real life.

Become one with yourself. If you can make an ally out of your mind, there is nothing you can’t do.

“If you make friends with yourself, you will never be alone.”

Before you can be a friend to someone else, you first need to ensure that the person in the mirror is your best friend. At the end of the day, you were born alone and you’re going to die alone.

So confide in yourself and make sure that your strongest ally is your mind.

Above all, always remember to never betray yourself. Love the man/woman in the mirror before you try to love something or someone else.

“Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.”

So many folks love this and love that, yet they fail to love themselves. Love without self love is not love; it’s just a disguise weak minded individuals wear because it helps them sleep better at night.

Therefore, embrace who you are, but more importantly, accept yourself for who you are. Typical self help bullshit indeed, but self love is the foundation for making the improbable, probable.

So love yourself or no one else will.

Stop handicapping yourself. Pick up your fucking head and look to the sky.

Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.

Low self-esteem = low level living.

Think about that the next time you beat yourself up.

Work on being the best you and you will terrorize the competition by default.

Your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent.

You kill the competition by first killing the doubts, worries, and fears that characterize your mind.

Never forget it and don’t give up. You are REFUSING to let success enter your life every time you fail to act on your ideas, talents, and abilities

“Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one’s better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.”

Everyone has ideas. You got an idea, I got an idea, and Dick, Harry, and Joe has an idea. The difference between who makes it and who fails lies not in the idea, but in the size of the person’s cojones.

The bigger the cojones, the bigger the success. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Winning is done in the mind before it is done on the field. So think yourself to victory. If you fail, don’t sweat it. There is always tomorrow to give the can another kick.

“Remember you will not always win. Some days, the most resourceful individual will taste defeat. But there is, in this case, always tomorrow – after you have done your best to achieve success today.”

Stop letting people ridicule you when you fail.

Stop letting people laugh in your face.

Stop letting people trick you out of your greatness.

Show them who the king truly is.

Rise above these blood sucking parasites and conquer the globe.

If life got you down I need you to get up... AND PROVE THEM WRONG!

It may not happen today, it may not happen tomorrow, and it may not happen for another decade, regardless, you need to keep raising hell. One day will be your day and when that day arrives, the look you see on the doubters face will be well worth the heartache you underwent to turn your dreams into reality.

The light is within you. All the answers to your questions are within you. Success is within you. Everything you need is already within you. Therefore, the next time you undergo a challenge or obstacle, instead of looking eternally for the solution, look within.

“You can always find the sun within yourself if you will only search.”

Stop seeking advice. Just stop it. If that means you stop reading this blog, so be it. Everything that you need, you already have.

There is nothing I can provide you with or someone else can provide you with that you don’t already know. Therefore, instead of searching for knowledge, it’s time you begin to act on the knowledge that lies within you.

The moment you make this change is the very moment you will begin to see change characterize your life.

Sell yourself…to yourself. Your most important sale in life is to sell yourself to yourself.

When you look in the mirror, you should see a lion, a king, a warrior, a god. Belief is the foundation for success and belief only comes with a high self image.

So believe you are capable or don’t begin.

The process is what makes life, life. Sure, you may want life to be all sunshine and rainbows, but that would hardly be a life worth living. Challenges and obstacles are after all what turn boys into men, girls into queens, and pawns into kings.

“We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.”

Like 50 Cent said, the sun wouldn’t feel so good, if it wasn’t for rain.

Learning how to win the game of life is a lot similar to learning how to ride a bike. At the end of the day, the person that wins is the person that keeps pedaling.

“Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving.”

You can only fall when you stop pedaling. Therefore, never stop moving forward. Keep it pushing. Each day is a new opportunity to raise hell and ensure you leave this earth as a fucking victor.

So go to it and wreak havoc!
