As much as you may work hard to improve your resume in order to go up the corporate ladder, if you do not work on your self image then you are bond to fail. Many people ignore the importance of working at improving their self image. They think that their qualifications will take them to the top and ignore or choose not to believe the existence of personal appearance.
Let me enlighten you on the importance of working on your self image. The first impression that people will have about you will prove to them how much you value, love and believe in yourself and your capabilities. It also goes a long way to show that you recognize your flaws and strengths.
A sad thing to note is how some people choose to ignore their weaknesses. To me this is irrational pride and that is the reason why there are people who are qualified but still end up being poor performers at their place of work. Acknowledging your flaws is in fact a strength that needs to be embraced and encouraged since it will help you work on your weakness.
One thing that can help you gain self worth is having a mentor. A good mentor should seek to change your perception of life and empower you to be able to build self confidence and hence improve your self image.
Mentorship motivates you and acts as an incentive to push you to achieve success and hence gain self confidence.
Everyday before you leave the house, look into the mirror and tell yourself that you are worth something. Believe in your capabilities and with time you will discover you have developed confidence and self worth.
