Imagination rules the world, imagination ismore important then knowledge, it is the preview of life's coming attractions. All winners in lifethink about and develop a positive self-image, winners see the act of winning before it everhappens. Winners act like winners, imaging with pictures, feelings and words the roles they wantto play. Successful people give themselves a preview of the coming attractions, what you see is what youget, and who you feel like is who you really are. You know its not what you are that holds youback, its what you think your not. You see we don't act in accordance with reality, we act inaccordance with our perception of reality. How we feel about ourselves is everything, for all thatwe ever do, or all we aspire to do in life will be based on that all important self concept or self-image. Imagine The Real You, The Successful You, See It In Your Mind And Live It Your self-image is a major player in the improvement of your personal development. The self-image is the fundamental key to understanding all of human behavior. If you change your self-image, you change your personality and your behavior. You can work on your outside but it willhave no effect on your inner self-image. In personal development, the building of your personal self-image is crucial to having any true selfimprovement. You have to feel strong and secure on the inside. What you see in the minds eye iswhat you get. If you see yourself as being a loser, unable to reach any significant achievements,failure will be a sure thing, you have destined yourself to losing. Everyone develops a self-image of every talent, every characteristic, and every performance.Images such as...."I am a lousy cook," or "I am no good at sports," or "I can't do anything right," ormaybe some positive self-images like, "I am great at working with computers," or "I can doanything I put my mind to," or "I am skilled and knowledgeable at my job." The way you define yourself is through your self-image. Each of us is controlled by these mentalpictures that we form. We can't outgrow these images we formed, we can only set new limitswithin which we must live. Our self-image determines the kind and scope of a person that we arein every walk of life, it is our life controlling mechanism. Our self-image determines the level of ourpersonal development. Our self-image dwells at the sub-conscious level of thinking, and although the term sub-consciousmind has been used, often inaccurately by non professional people, it is much more correct tothink of it not as a mind, but rather a level of awareness with very special characteristics and
abilities. The conscious level of thinking is responsible for collecting information from theenvironment, storing it in the memory cells, and making rational decisions. The sub-consciouslevel of thinking, is responsible for autonomic body control, such as breathing and heartbeat, andthe storage of information and creative goal seeking. The conscious mind cannot make a decision without clearing it with the sub-conscious mind. Thesub-conscious mind checks your memory bank including the self-image and replays the availabledata back to the conscious mind for taking action. Your sub-conscious mind controls the consciouslevel of thinking. The information in the sub-conscious mind is permanent, it is a lifetime of storedevents and information. You can never erase your sub-conscious mind but you can overwrite itwith new and challenging information and events. To improve your personal development it's your self-image that needs some adjusting and thisneeds to be ingrained in your sub-conscious mind. It's important to know that every imaginedexperience, repeated vividly is also recorded in the brain before the event has ever really takenplace. So we have a replay and a pre-play ability, a feedback and a feed forward capability in themind, and every moment of everyday we program our sub-conscious mind and self-image to workfor us or work against us. Since our sub-conscious mind is only for storage, it strives to meet the objective and goals we set,whether negative or positive, false or true, wrong or right, dangerous or not dangerous, losing orwinning. It's sole function is to follow instructions based upon previous inputs and to respondautomatically. Your sub-conscious self-image can't distinguish between an actual experience orone that you have only vividly imagined, it stores emotional fantasy's as your own reality. This iswhy we are full of prejudices, full of fears and Easter bunny's, learned from our parents, peers,and the media, which simply are not true. Many of your everyday decisions are based upon information about yourself, which has beenstored as truth, but is just a figment of your own imagination shaded by your own environmentalconditioning. This shows the importance of training and re-training your sub-conscious mind, inyour journey for improved personal development. You see your a slave to your sub-conscious mind and your developed self-image. If you try tomake a change to yourself, using only your conscious mind and will power, the change will mostlikely only be temporary. Whenever your conscious mind and your sub-conscious mind come inconflict, your sub-conscious mind has the best chance of winning. To improve your personaldevelopment you must work on your sub-conscious mind, this is where your self-image has beendeveloped and where it has to be worked on. Any personal change in your behavior begins with change in your self-image, and this can beaccomplished by defeating your fears and through strong desire. Your behavior and achievementlevel is usually consistent with your self-image. If you perform below your self-image level, you willnaturally feel uncomfortable, and make any necessary adjustments to try and do better next time.If you happen to perform to well or too high above your self-image level, tension will automaticallybring your performance back down to where you think you belong. This explains temporary fleeting success, and choking under pressure. This is all behavioralactions based on your personal self-image. Working to impress new beliefs upon your sub-
conscious mind, is personal development in action, that is if you are striving to improve upon yourself-image. Winners in life take it on themselves to enlarge their self-image, winners dwell on andhold the self-image of that person they would most like to become. They get a vivid, clear,emotional, sensory picture of themselves as if they have already achieved their new role in life. In building your own personal development you chose to see yourself as the person you want tobe, you envision success, and achievement, your belief in yourself has grown to the level you wantit to be. You should always strive to be better, take control of your mind through mental pictures,tell yourself you are a winner and a winner you will be. Build A More Positive Self-Image First, set aside 20 to 30 minutes a day, in the morning, in the evening, or at lunch and imagineyourself achieving and enjoying your most important personal creative desires as if you werepreviewing three television short subjects. Picture one sequence accomplishing a professional triumph, maybe a promotion, or a bonus, oran awards ceremony. Picture another scene promoting a family success, maybe a special outing,a family reunion, or a highly anticipated vacation. Then vision a personal success, possibly afitness goal or completion of a continuing educational class, something that you personallyaccomplished that you might have had reservations about in the past. Get the actual sensation and clear image of each event, fill your vision with emotion, feel the pridein your achievements, there is no stopping your personal development when you fill your mind withcommitment. Another technique for improving your self-image is to read or listen to a biography every month ofsomeone who has reached the top in your profession, or in your major hobby, or someone youhave admired for his or her own courage. As you read or listen, imagine yourself as that person,having everyone of those qualities you so admire. Finally, while you are relaxing and visioning your own imagined triumphs try listening to some slowinspirational mood music in the background, the process of relaxing to the music will open asubjective window to your sub-conscious level of thinking and make you more receptive to yourown creative images. Remember your sub-conscious mind accepts that as a fact that which youvividly, and repeatedly imagine, your creative imagination rules your world. The development apositive self-image is one of the most important keys to improving your personal development, andtruly becoming a winner in life. Hi! My name is Howard G.
