4 Ways your self-image impacts on your performance

Posted on January 9, 2016

Self-image refers to the way in which you view yourself. The way in which you view yourself affects both your belief that you can do something, and your willingness to actually do it. You can have all the positive intentions in the world but if you place limitations on yourself, you will struggle to break through them.

The following are some of the key ways in which your self-image affects your performance:

1. Perception

There is so much going on in the world at any one time that it is impossible to take it all in. What we see is heavily influenced by how we view ourselves. If you truly believe that you can do something, you will find the resilience to persist. You will see opportunities where others see problems and you will see failed attempts as opportunities to learn.

2. Beliefs

Your core beliefs and values shape the way you view the world. For example, if you believe that this world is a world full of cruelty and misery, you will have no problem finding the evidence to support that view. However, if you believe that we live in a world full of joy and wonder, you won’t have much trouble finding the evidence to support that view either. You can find whatever you are looking for in this world; your beliefs will determine what you are looking for.
