How often do you pay attention to those thoughts in your head. Do you treat yourself well by pumping up your ego or do you tend to put yourself down? You are your own best friend. There is no one else in the world that has the ability to treat you as well as you.
Why would you ever want to bully yourself? There is enough heartache in the world without you adding to your own misery. You should be celebrating who you are. Pump up that ego and let yourself know that you are worthwhile and can accomplish anything.
Here is an example of the power of your thoughts: Two people walk into a room. One person feels really good about the way they look in their outfit, and are excited about seeing and catching up with some old friends. The other person walking in feels bad about their appearance. They are embarrassed about the way they look. They are also meeting up with friends, but feel that it is more of an obligation that a good time. Which person might have something special occur? When a person feels good and radiates those feelings, people are drawn to it. That person might get a compliment or offered a drink by another patron. Remarkable things happen to those who radiate confidence, joy and acceptance in who they are. The person who came in feeling bad, is most likely to have an awful experience. Even if they don’t realize that they are feeling down, chances are people will avoid them or possibly feel offended by a look or a reaction that person gives them.
Every now and then, check in on yourself. Think about how you are feeling. Are you happy with the way things are going? Should improvements be made? Find ways to tweak what you don’t like and celebrate what you do.
The bottom line here is that when you take care of yourself and make sure to build yourself up, remarkable things happen. When you become your own worse enemy, others will follow suit and treat you in that same fashion. Your happiness and ultimately your success is all based on you.
