The manner in which you view yourself mirrors the way that others see you. The way you feel about yourself, the words you speak to yourself and the way you present yourself has a profound effect on how much you value yourself. When you radiate with confidence and optimism, others take notice. In order to get the career you've always wanted, look and feel your best, and attract loving relationships into your life, it's important to always know your worth, even when others don't.

First, start by de-cluttering your mind. Clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that is bogging you down. Rid yourself of all the negative thoughts that you have about yourself and replace them with positive ones. Learn how to select your thoughts, just as you would your clothes for the day. You have complete control over your mind. So start cultivating positive thoughts.

Love is a state of being. It's not how much you do, but how much love you put into everything you do that matters. Love isn't something that just happens between two people. It is something that you are either open to in the present, or you're not. When you let love into your life, you allow yourself to feel and experience all life has to offer. Life is too short. Live it with an open mind and an open heart, always!

It's not other people's job to love you and make you happy; it's yours. It's important to always be nice and respectful of others, but it's even more important to be nice and respectful toward yourself. You have to live with yourself the rest of your life, so stop being so hard on yourself. Focus on your strengths and lead by example. You are special and unique in every way. And if other people don't appreciate you for who you are, it's their loss. Remember, there are some people who don't even like chocolate cake.

Let someone love you for who you truly are. As flawed as you might be, as unaccomplished as you might think you are, and as unattractive as you might feel, It is always better to be real and be yourself, than to be something that you're not. Hiding behind all your parts that you believe are broken, out of fear that someone else is not capable of loving what is less than perfect, is like believing that sunlight is incapable of entering through a broken window and brightening any dark room.

Don't expect good things to come easily, we must work at them. Easy is to think about improving. Difficult is to put these thoughts into action. Easy is to stumble and fall. Difficult is to get back up. Easy is to judge the mistakes of others. Difficult is to recognize your own mistakes. Easy is to receive. Difficult is to give. Easy is to promise something. Difficult is to fulfill that promise. Easy is to say "I love you." Difficult is to show it every day.

Most of the things we need in life are simple, but not easy. But things that are difficult are often the most worthwhile. And you are worth it!
