Just as your words create your reality, the thoughts behind your words also create your reality. We see these types of examples every single day- you think you look really cute in those shoes, so you rock them hard, then comes the compliments. You have to ask yourself, “is it just my shoes, or was it the way I wore those shoes?”
Let’s consider an issue both women and men struggle with, our physical appearance. Even people that are considered striking in their particular culture, are insecure of their skin, legs, waist, or nose. Yet, what the rest of see is an extremely attractive person. Why? In public they seem as if they believe that they are beautiful. We perceive their belief and we then see their beauty; proving self-belief is guided by our thoughts.
In turn, being beautiful comes down to how you think about yourself. Those thoughts of confidence, positive self-belief combined with your inner beauty will be obvious to those around you. Our insecure thoughts can be difficult to overcome. Although, there are some ways in which you can realize your beauty, think your beauty and be your beauty.
Look at yourself and choose a feature that you think is attractive. Then spend some time telling yourself why you like that feature. This may take a number of positive thought sessions, but soon when you see that feature, you will automatically think “I look pretty cute!”
Second, stop comparing yourself to others. Every culture, sub group and genre has their definition of beauty; all of which are often incomparable. Not only thinking you’re “not as…” or “why can’t I look like…” is unrealistic. You will not and cannot look like them, because you are uniquely and beautifully you. Remove those comparing thoughts and remember you are the best version of you that could ever be.
Now this last tip might seem overly simple, but when you are trying to think beautiful, do just that. Say positive affirmations about your appearance. The intentions of those words, creates an amazing energy about you. Also, reaffirming positives thoughts changes your outlook on your outward appearance.
I encourage you to stop seeing “flaws” and see your uniqueness, don’t compare yourself to what you cannot be and remind yourself how beautiful you are on a daily basis. Most importantly, get out there and show the world your beauty!
