I came across this by chance and thought this apt and appropriate to share on my blog for those going through a journey similar to that of mine, …
A woman wakes up one morning. She goes to the bathroom. She brushes her teeth. She washes her face. She takes a shower. She puts on her clothes. She brushes her hair. She does all of this without once looking in the mirror. She’s ashamed of her appearance. She feels ugly and worthless.
Now behind her shame, she has big dreams. She wants to own her own clothing line one day
She wants to start her own business! That part seems okay right? Being an entrepreneur. Making a lot of money. But I have a question. How can she do this when she can’t even look at herself in the mirror?
Now many people believe that appearance doesn’t have anything to do with future success, but it does! When trying to accomplish your dreams, goals, and aspirations, many people are going to try to knock you down. They are going to try to tell you that you can’t do it and that you are wasting your time. If you don’t even have the confidence to look at yourself in the mirror, there is no way you will have the confidence to tell someone to watch you succeed. After all, you’re most likely self conscious because of what someone said about you in the the past. Maybe it was in Grade 2, maybe it was in high school. Whatever it may be, most insecurities are built based on what others say.
Success starts with believing in yourself. Whether you believe you are beautiful or you believe you’re a certified genius, you have to be confident within yourself so that you can let others know that you are destined for greatness.
You also have to be confident and strong in your image so that your future employees and clients can be confident as well. No one wants to buy or work for a person that is weak minded and has negative thoughts about themselves. That shows them that if you can’t even believe in yourself, why should they believe in your product or work ethic.
Of course appearance isn’t the only aspect to being successful but it has a lot to do with it!
Believe in yourself. Love yourself. Accept yourself. With a little bit of confidence and positive reassuring, you will succeed
