Establish the qualities you have that you actually like. Things like physical attributes you have that you think make you look good, a special talent or skill that you have or even a trait that you think makes you a great person. Notice here I said “great person”, because you are just that. You are great! Start believing that you are, say it out loud; in the shower, in the car, walking into the store, first thing in the morning. Remember to keep your heart from growing prideful. This positive reinforcement will help you change your thoughts.
Make a list of these attributes and look at them when you feel down in the dumps, feel sorrow, feel unworthy. Start with something your first list and as time goes on keep adding to the list you will be amazed how many things you really DO like about yourself.
“Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful people act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly and you will be amazed at the positive result.” – Dupree Jordan
