Changing Your Self-Image

“Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image.”~ Dennis Waitley
Today I want to share a powerful strategy that will change your self-image. Few things about us are more closely linked to our thinking than our self-image. Someone’s belief about who he or she is can make the anorexic feel fat, the average athlete a star, and the beautiful girl see herself as an ugly duckling. When it comes to this topic, thinking not reality, rules.
The famous scientist Dr. Maxwell Maltz, the creator of Psycho-Cybernetics stated it plainly,“The self-image is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.”
I encourage you to say any of the below listed affirmations over and over so they will change your thinking and become part of your belief system about yourself.
By the way, affirmations are words or phrases which are said over and over to AFFIRM a single thought about yourself or other people. This is the way you have formed negative and positive programming throughout your lifetime, saying things to yourself, about yourself, over and over. After thoughts are repeated, they soon become a BELIEF, and then we think this belief is our reality.  Since we created these beliefs we can also change them. This is where real freedom comes from.
As you say the following affirmations, feel so jazzed up about what you are saying that you feel like it is already there, then you’ll be well on your way to a healthy self-image.
1. Being who I am is a blessing and a rush. There’s no one else I’d rather be!
2. I accept myself exactly as I am. I am at absolute peace with myself.
3. I like myself. I don’t like everything I do, and I want to change—but I refuse to reject myself.
4. I unconditionally love and respect myself in every way.
5. I am the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am glad to be who I am!
6.Today I make a bold statement. The world deserves the real me and today it gets me.
7. I am a unique and worthy person. I require no more justification than that to be exactly who I am.
8. What matters is who I AM not who I’ve been! Today I release everything I hold against myself.

10. My beauty flows from inside to out. As I recognize my inner beauty, my outer beauty blossoms.

12. As I feel more attractive, I AM more attractive. Today I am very attractive!
13. The more I love and appreciate myself, the more beautiful I become.
14. I look and feel wonderful.
15. Happiness is an attitude NOT a number on a scale. Today I am happy with who I am.
16. I am beautiful in mind. I am beautiful in body. I am beautiful in spirit.
