Self-image is how you perceive yourself either as a failure or someone one who is on the right track to achieving a goal in future.
Having positive self-image can be coupled with skill development in a way that what you tell yourself, how you treat yourself, and how you interpret your world.
Some people believe that a person’s self-image is determined by the events that affect him or her like failure at school, having a relationship that is not working out, this shows how society perceives one’s self-image.
This belief does not cover the real image of a person, since society does not see the depth of your self image but quickly judges you according to how it sees the physical being of yourself other than the inner being.

Positive self image begins from your inner being
In any case one’s self-image ought to be both positive and realistic. Having a self-image that is not realistic can be a setback and in a way that stops one from laying strategies and making them materialize becomes a problem.
This can all be attributed to having little faith and belief that you can ignite something on your own other than waiting for society to judge you and impact on positive self-image.
How you achieve a positive self-image
You can achieve a positive self-image if you lay realistic positive achievable goals, since positive self-esteem is both a prerequisite and a consequence of success in one’s life.
Through laying certain values and principles, you ought to be ready to defend and stand firm against anyone trying to discourage you from attaining your desires and values.
This means that if you can achieve your goals, you can achieve your positive self-image. But, if you give away to pressure, you may end up in misery and self-pity which may underscore the improvement of yourself image.
Within us we have an inner being or voice that keeps tasking us with queries like, do you ever listen to what you’re saying to yourself? Do you put yourself down or call yourself names?
This helps us to learn to hear the things that we say about ourselves and it can only happen if we put this voice into a positive image other than listening to negative society talk.
One should take the first step toward a more positive self-image through listening to what our inner self tells us, other than rushing to implementing what others want us to do.
Therefore one can improve on his/her image through having a more positive attitude towards your thinking, physical behavior and abilities of learning new skills while at the same time opening up to a new dynamic world of changes.
Instead of being tied down by your former self, it is up to you to determine and play a huge part in your happiness and this is greatly increased by taking action and changing your attitude towards yourself.
Believe in yourself and know that you’re capable of handling life’s problems. In that way you can better your positive self-image.
