Let me ask you a question: how do you see yourself? Or, to put it another way, what is your self-image?
No doubt you can respond quite quickly, but now spend a little bit of time really thinking about yourself. Not about what  others  may  think  of  you,  because  they  may  have completely the wrong impression, but how you actually see yourself.

Some people, as they achieve success in life, build their ego and then have an insatiable appetite to feed this ego. It is important for us all to have an ego, but not an ego problem. There is a saying: the bigger the ego, the smaller the bank balance. I remember an Australian saying to me many years ago, ‘Be nice to people on the way up, because you meet the same ones on the way back down again.’ It is very useful advice. Looking at my own experiences to date, I have had some amazing highs and some equally incredible lows, and that little message has stood me in good stead.

Your self-image is the key to your success. You will perform exactly as you see yourself, so your opinion of yourself is extremely important if you are aiming for success. We have all heard the expression ‘Some people are their own worst enemy.’ It is true; they really are. Sometimes people experience an inferiority complex and, if we’re honest, we have all experienced that at some stage in our lives or in certain situations. Poor self-image is a more fundamental problem than the occasional feeling of inferiority. A person with a poor self-image communicates their negativity in their dealings with others.
