How to deal with self image issues

In my previous articles understanding self image issues part 1 and part 2 I explained how self image issues are formed and I explained the basic idea that you can use to get rid of them.

In this article I will give the practical details that you need in order to get rid of self image issues completely.

How to get rid of self image problems

I have previously explained that beliefs are formed by repetition. If you want to replace a belief with a new one then you must stop reinforcing the old one and keep repeating the new one. (see The belief system and belief formation).

In case of self image issues the new belief we need to install is your real looks while the old belief is the imagined picture you have in your mind.

Since you now know that the person you see in pictures is not you (because cameras only take 2D pictures of you while people see you in 3D, see I look ugly in pictures) you need to reinforce this belief in your mind by repeating it over and over until the new picture takes over the one that is currently in your mind.

Now each social situation that you go through might either strengthen or weaken your positive beliefs depending on how you process those situations in your mind. If for example a person didn't look at your direction and you interpreted this as a sign that you are not attractive then certainly you will strengthen the belief that says that you are ugly. See How incorrect perception affects your self confidence.

In other words you keep programming yourself all the time with new beliefs based on how you interpret the different situations you go through. This is why you need to make sure that you are always seeing reality correctly but keep your thoughts under conscious monitoring.

A great part of the self image problem happens because of the way we give meaning to events and not because of the events themselves. This is why learning how to constantly modify your self talk can help you a great deal in dealing with self image problems.

How to install that new belief?

In the Solid Self confidence program i said that the only way to install that new belief in your mind is to keep doing a reality check.

Before you leave your house take a good look in the mirror and try to keep the image you saw in your mind as much as you can. Whenever you are about to encounter a social situation try recalling the image you saw in the mirror instead of the usual image that comes to your mind (which is usually distorted and defective).

You might find that weird in the beginning because you will be facing life with a totally new look that is not related to the old one at all. Of course you won’t keep doing this for the rest of your life because as you keep recalling this new picture it will replace the old one and then pop up automatically without even thinking about it.

It takes some effort to install a new belief but in the end it will become a part of your belief system and you wont need to exert any more effort to maintain it.
