February 25, 2011


Are you your worst critic? Do you beat up yourself over petty little mistakes? Are you your own worst enemy? Some people set such high standards for themselves that the only thing they can do is fail, and when they do fail, they are their own worst emotional abuser. Instead of tearing yourself down, build yourself up! Start believing in yourself today!

If you do not believe in yourself, then why should other people believe in you? Start treating yourself as if you are your own best friend. Treat yourself with respect, love yourself, and when things don't go the way you think they should have gone, well, try again.

I am an avid reader of Joel Osteen books. One thing that I have learned from reading his books is you have to be your own cheerleader. You have to look at yourself not through your own eyes, but through the eyes of God. Ask yourself, "How does God view me?" He views you as the most precious gift a Father could have! "You are a child of the Most High God" (Joel Osteen).

Now, I know that you might have years of negative thoughts instilled within your brain that you might have been taught since a young child. Maybe your parents or someone close to you didn't think very highly of you. Well, as Joel Osteen teaches, God loves you, and He thinks you are a wonderful spiritual being.

Start building yourself up today. Instead of being  your own worst enemy, try being your own best friend. If you mess up doing something, don't relive it over and over for days or even weeks. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and keep on moving forward. Start believing in yourself! Encourage yourself to be the best that you can possibly be!
