When you’ve mindfully set a healthy self-concept for yourself, a set of beliefs which you believe unconditionally about yourself, you are not affected by the good or bad opinions of others.
Without much second thought you are able to think, speak, and act in accordance to those beliefs. You may have gathered an amazing self-concept of yourself filled with uplifting, forgiving, loving, positive characteristics. You could be called all kinds of things, be gossiped about, be told you are ugly and it would only amuse you without any interruption on how you view yourself. You live happily, freely no matter what. You are not afraid to think, speak, act your satnam- truth.
If however, you have a negative self-concept of yourself, i.e. you’re angry, sad, judgmental, gossipy.. you might agree with people who speak badly of you. You wouldn’t be able to fulfill your passions with full potential. If you know it’s time to for a change, change your self-concept first.
Here’s a suggestion on how to reframe your self-concept: find a set of 7 affirmations that make your heart flutter, example:
- I have a strong body.
- I am gorgeous inside and out.
- I am calm.
- I have a positive attitude.
- My dreams are uplifting.
- I am a vibrant person with magnetic energy.
- I am imaginative.
Say your set of 7 affirmations every single chance you get. When you fully know yourself you know there is no reason to be defensive or offended. When you are complimented you know how to take a compliment and you’re humbled- not arrogant. Feel what it truly means to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Effortlessly flow towards the direction of your dreams without disruption, this is the power of defining your self-concept.
xx love & light.
