How to create a Trillion dollar self image

Updated: Mar 11, 2023

"Self-image refers to an individual's mental picture or perception of themselves, including their thoughts, beliefs, and feelings about their abilities, personality traits, and physical appearance."A strong self-image is important for human beings as it can lead to improved mental health, better relationships, increased confidence, greater resilience, and improved career prospects. It can also promote healthy boundaries and the pursuit of personal goals." Says National Award winning design educationist Prof. Gaurav Mandal

What Builds Self Image:

Several factors can contribute to the creation of a person's self-image, including:

  • Family and upbringing: The way that an individual was raised and the messages they received from their family can influence their self-image.

  • Social experiences: The feedback and reactions that individuals receive from others, such as friends, peers, and authority figures, can impact their self-image.

  • Cultural and societal norms: Societal norms and expectations around appearance, achievement, and behavior can influence how individuals perceive themselves.

  • Personal experiences: Traumatic experiences, successes, and failures can shape an individual's self-image.

  • Media and advertising: Media and advertising often perpetuate unrealistic beauty standards and portray certain lifestyles as desirable, which can impact self-image.

It's important to note that while these factors can contribute to the creation of self-image, individuals also have the power to shape and improve their self-image through self-reflection, positive self-talk, and seeking support when needed.

Here are ten ways to strengthen your self-image:

Practice self-compassion: Be kind and gentle with yourself when facing challenges.

Identify your strengths: Write down your accomplishments and what you are good at.

Focus on positive self-talk: Replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations.

Engage in self-care: Take care of your physical, emotional, and mental health.

Set achievable goals: Break down your goals into small, achievable steps.

Develop healthy relationships: Surround yourself with supportive and encouraging people.

Learn from mistakes: View mistakes as learning opportunities and growth experiences.

Accept compliments: Believe and accept compliments from others.

Try new things: Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and try new activities.

Practice gratitude: Focus on what you have, rather than what you lack.

  • Keep a gratitude journal: Write down three things you're thankful for each day.

  • Express gratitude to others by thanking them for their actions or qualities.

  • Focus on what you have, rather than what you lack.

  • Take a moment to appreciate the beauty around you.

  • Practice mindfulness to be present and appreciate the moment.
