When we see concrete examples of the qualities we admire, it can inspire us to do the same.
Most of us never aspired to be an average person working at a job we don’t enjoy. When you can be the person you’ve always wanted to be, your self-concept will be perfect for you. Isn’t that what everyone dreams about anyway? When you’re the person you want to be, you’ll have the life you desire.
How to consciously decide who you want to be:
1. Who do you admire and why? Do you wish you were more like Michelle Obama? Why? Are you a fan of Beyoncé? Issa Rae? Lena Waithe? Lizzo? Why?
2. What personal qualities have you always admired in others?
Remaining cool under pressure?
3. What can you do today to start being the person you’ve always wanted to be? There’s no one that can stop you. Anyone who tries to get in your way can be ignored, so be on a mission to become the person you would admire.
This is the ultimate goal. If you’re the person you wish to be and living the life you desire, your opinion of yourself will be at the highest possible level, Queen. Everything else is just a stepping-stone to reach this point.
Even as you work on enhancing your self-concept, it’s important to accept yourself, wherever you may be on your journey.
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
Here’s what you need to do today:
Write down one quality that you admire in someone else. How can you start demonstrating this quality yourself? Make a note to practice it each day.
