My Positive Traits My “Negative” Traits
Step 1: Self Discovery: Know thyself
Self image touches many areas of our lives, but it doesn't always
have much to do with reality. Instead, it is how we feel about our-
selves based on physicality, personal experiences and internalizing
the (often inaccurate) judgments of others.
We act in consistent with our self-image. We affect
how others feel about us. And we seek experiences
that reinforce our beliefs of who we believe we are.
Self-image have a powerful impact on our pre-
sent and future. Most people spend a lifetime in
vain pursuit of success to cover up poorly per-
ceived self image and feeling of inadequacy.
The good news is you have the power to change
how you feel about yourself and hence the course
of your life.
