Why You Should Never Give Up On Yourself

Never give up on yourself

I’m not here to promise you that all your dreams will come true.

I’m not here to promise you that you’ll be that super confident, super attractive, super rich, super famous, super funny, or super anything.

And I’m not here to guarantee anything. What you want out of life? Who knows if you’ll get it. Who do you want to be? It’s hard to think about it when you’re living the life of who you don’t want to be.

Maybe, in the end, it doesn’t even matter.

How to Be Assertive Learning how to be assertive is not a luxury. It’s a necessity.

4 Behaviors Better Than Affirmations to Have a Healthy Self-Image

Affirmations suck!

In fact, go out there and repeat whatever affirmation that you find, see them for what they really are, and then come back to this article and practice the 4 behaviors found here to build a solid base for a healthy self-image and self-esteem.

I’ve mentioned in another article that self-image is nothing but a few beliefs that you have about yourself.

Self-image And Cognitive Distortions

I have scary news.

We don’t actually see things as they are. We don’t even see. We perceive.

Look, I get it. You want to have a positive self-image.

You don’t want to have a negative self-image or a poor self-image.

And it makes sense. The strategy is to overcome the negative self-image by creating a positive one.

But, how good is that strategy in real life?

Let me tell you, and argue with you, that it’s not that effective actually.

I agree that you should not have a negative self-image. But at the same time, you should not try to have a positive self-image.
