Your Thoughts on You

February 2, 2012

Take a moment to step outside of your current first-person perspective, and put yourself in the shoes of a neutral observer. Now ask yourself a few straightforward questions, and give an honest answer:

What do you think about yourself?

Do you find yourself attractive (by your personal standards)? Do you possess the (inner) qualities that you so desire in other people?

 

Are you interesting? Would you choose to spend time with ‘you’ over some other girl/guy?

If so, what makes you so? What qualities do you see in ‘you?’ What makes ‘you’ stand out from everyone else you have seen today?

 

Do you trust ‘you?’ Would you feel safe going on a spontaneous, one-on-one adventure with yourself?

 

Are you a giver or a taker? Are you a genuinely good person?

 

Are you the type of person that you would want in your life?

This is no self-esteem personality test. Rather it’s a way to allow you to become self-aware of this person which you are directing day-in and day-out. This entity is undoubtedly the most important person you know, and you may or may not have realized it. Thus, it’s vital to pay attention to them, and it may take an honest, neutral assessment to do just that.

If you don’t find yourself attractive or worth anyone’s time, then why should anyone else? If you don’t have a healthy sense of confidence in yourself and your decisions, then why should anyone follow you? Truth be told, the way we see ourselves is likely the way others see us.

 

If you answered anything less than a ‘yes’ for the final question, then my question to you is: what are you going to do about it?

 

My suggestion is to become the person that you wish to be. That may begin by consciously renewing your thoughts about yourself. Make a point to change your mind and start to see yourself in a positive light. If it helps, tell yourself these positive messages out loud. This isn’t a fraud or some pseudo-confidence. After all, you are FULL of value. You possess skills, talents, and interests that others don’t. Also, once you realize it, you’re only as attractive as you think you are.

 

So, what do you really think? Feel free to answer how you see yourself. I’m looking forward to hearing about a transformation.
