How many of us look in the mirror each morning and only see our imperfections? You focus on small wrinkles around the eyes, stray gray hairs, imperfect teeth, cellulite, belly fat, ..etc. What would happen if you changed your ritual and began to see beauty instead?
The quote ” What you focus on will flourish” is so true in many ways. If you bring attention to what’s good, the bad will fade. Learn to wake up with a positive outlook and take a good look at what you like about yourself. This can make a tremendous difference in your self-image and your confidence.
What’s unique about your beauty? Is it your beautiful eyes, a gorgeous smile, glowing skin, or your winning personality. Begin to let go of your imperfections; they are less apparent to others than you might think. Learn to embrace your flaws, accept them and begin to explore what you can do to accentuate your posititive attributes. As you begin your path of self-exploration, take inventory of what you see and write it down. Don’t focus solely on appearance; look at personality traits and how you interact with others. People are drawn to others who exude self-confidence and portray a positive attitude. How do you make others feel when you interact with them? Give others your full attention and look them in the eye when you talk to them. Really LISTEN to what they have to say.
Self exploration gives you power, knowledge, and self-confidence. Learn to take care of your body, your appearance, and your soul. Perhaps you may consider giving yourself a makeover, or maybe you want to improve other areas of your life such as job or social skills. Discover new books you want to read, learn a new language, or discover a new hobby. Challenge yourself to take a yoga class or try meditation. Learn the importance of being quiet and reducing stress in your life. We all have many areas of our life we can improve on that will improve our quality of life.
What you focus on will flourish. Self-confidence looks beautiful on everyone. Learn to love yourself!
