365 Steps To Self-Confidence
I am reading the book 365 steps to self-confidence currently. Generally i don’t follow steps/ ways kind of books but this book is bit different. Small but nice ideas are explained and i really liked it. I think everybody should read this and implement some of the ideas. One idea which i just read is as follows:
What do you think of your body? Do you like it? Do you wish it were different
in some way? If so, it may surprise you to discover that you’re in the great major-
ity. Most of us don’t particularly like our bodies and could produce a lengthy list
of ‘faults’ quite easily. Few people conform to the physical norms put across in
People who can’t accept their bodies are prone to desperately low self-esteem.
They exhibit an above average degree of obsessive behaviours, eating disorders,
self-hatred, sexual dysfunctions and many other problems. This is exacerbated by
certain social and religious attitudes.
Rumbling tummies, bad breath, bowel movements and breaking wind are part of
our biology. Why be ashamed? When we get older our faces become lined, boobs
and bellies droop, muscles sag, men lose their hair and so on. It’s bound to
happen, so why worry about it?
We must learn to accept our bodies with good grace and a touch of humour, to
accept some of our so-called defects, and work on those which can be changed.
If your confidence is affected by anything that can be improved, do it!
Otherwise there’s no point in feeling sorry for yourself
