Self-discovery is delayed for many of us because we have preconceived images of ourselves that cause us to act in certain ways. This self-image influences the choices we make about our physical appearance, our career choices, the people we associate with, and the environment in which we choose to live. All these choices, plus many others, work together to produce our self-concept. For instance, people who believe they are ugly and not smart will end to dress sloppily, walk around with a slouched posture, and choose a job that doesn't require much thinking or education. Their self-concept of being no good will not allow them to be open to better opportunities.
by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim.
What is your self-concept about yourself? Do you believe in yourself and your abilities? Sit down and think about your strengths and weaknesses. Do you need to improve your self-image? How?
