When I was 14 years of age, I developed very bad acne.
I also had bands on my teeth to straighten them.
Every time I looked in the mirror, all I could see were the bands and the acne.
Because I didn’t like what I saw, I believed others would not like what they saw.
I convinced myself I was not as good as others. I felt inferior.
This was a new belief that shaped my thoughts and actions – especially with relationships.
I was constantly being rejected with them replacing me with another guy.
This only reinforced my belief system of “I am not good enough”.
Result: More of the same.
I finally hit rock bottom and began studying the power of the mind.
One day, whilst helping a lady to overcome a feeling of rejection, I drew a diagram on my white board that completely changed her life … and mine!
And in an instant.
I realised how dependent I was on others for how I felt. I then came to the conclusion that I had to depend on myself as this was all I had control of.
Many years later again, I realised, while I never liked the way I looked because of the braces and acne, this was not how others perceived me. I was my own worst enemy.
I automatically thought, if I don’t like the look of me, others won’t like me.
It’s amazing how your mind plays tricks on you.
I have completely changed my attitude to me and about life.
Through doing this, I am no longer feeling rejection. And this is a great feeling.
I also realise, my physical appearance is not related to who I am as a person. I determine who I would like to be.
If you would like to know how I turned my life around, I have some good news.
