Happiness comes from a deep sense of self-worth, connection and belief in your own goodness. Everything you do in life is affected by your view of yourself. You will act like the person you perceive yourself to be. When you are confident and comfortable with your view of yourself, you are balanced and content, regardless of what happens externally. When your self-image is threatened, you feel insecure, defensive and anxious.
Once you understand the underlying beliefs that make up your self-image, you hold the keys to creating confidence, power and happiness. Your self-image controls how and what you do, but you can control and shape your self-image. Greatness lives in everyone. In each of us are a leader, a creative soul, a lover, a fighter, a hater and a healer. It is the extent to which we discover and empower these parts of ourselves that determines who we are.
