Proactive

Your Own Self Image

The ideas and interpretations of others show who they are and who we appear to be. Instead of changing them, change yourself. It is not their ideas that matter, but your ideas. Your idea of who you are, your conception of self is the most important factor. Improve your self-image and your entire world around you changes. Focusing on your own belief is truly how you change the beliefs of those around you about you.
