The act, process, or outcome of self-transformation. Then, like an epiphany, [Cindy] Fricke's embrace of herself inspired self-transformation... Fricke shed 130 pounds in a year because she felt "this time was different." — From "Cindy Fricke: Shedding the Pounds" by Mary Ann Bragg, published in the Chicago Tribune, February 2, 2000.
Self-transformation is when you change yourself into who you were meant to be.
It's an internal change that comes from understanding your true nature and following it.
As human beings, we all have the potential to self-transform.
It begins with accepting who you are right now, including your flaws and failures. Only then can you grow into being better versions of yourself.
Often, people want to know how to self-transform themselves. But the only way to do this is by learning about who you really are and acting according to that knowledge.
Understanding yourself is the first step toward self-transforming.
Once you understand your true nature, you can follow it, which will help you self-transform.
People often ask me what they can do to self-transform themselves.
The key to becoming unstuck is self-transformation. Changing people is difficult. You can inspire, encourage, persuade, or influence others, but changing yourself is the most effective approach to improve your results. After all, you have power over your attitude and behavior. You are responsible for how you feel and what you do.
The more you care about something, the more you will try to protect it. This means that if you want to change something in your life, you must be willing to protect it as much as you can. Care is the key to transformation. Without it, nothing changes.
People are resistant to change because they link it with loss. We fear losing something we have now - such as status, comfort, or security - so we try to keep things as they are. This is why transformation requires us to give up our old ways of being or doing things and learn new ones. It is a risk that we cannot take with ease.
The older you get, the more difficult it is to transform yourself. Because you have more experience, you know what does not work. If you try something new and it fails, you can always go back to what you were doing before. But if you try something new and it succeeds, there is no going back. At some point, you need to take a risk and move forward.
The concept of self-image, or what a person is today as opposed to what he or she aspires to be (that is, the ideal self), was first proposed by Abraham Maslow in his famous paper "A Theory of Human Motivation." According to this theory, humans have a set of basic needs that must be satisfied for them to feel happy and content.
These needs are: physiological needs such as food, water, and sleep; safety needs such as avoiding physical danger and being able to seek shelter when necessary; love and friendship needs such as feeling important and having others trust us; and finally, self-actualization needs such as expressing our potential abilities and achieving personal growth.
Self-esteem is an overall rating that we give to ourselves based on how we think others view us. It includes both positive and negative feelings about ourselves.
Our self-images are shaped by many factors including but not limited to our family, friends, teachers, and mentors. These people help form our views on what it means to be successful and lead healthy lives.
Additionally, the way we look is also very important for how we perceive ourselves. The more we care about something, the more likely we are to take good care of it. This applies to health too!
Self-destruction. Self-degradation. Self-dissatisfaction. This is self-defeating. Someone who is self-destructive may do things like drink too much alcohol or use drugs. They may also eat poorly or not exercise at all. All of these behaviors can lead to death. Also called suicidal behavior.
People sometimes say that you can't judge someone's character by how they treat themselves. That may be true, but it doesn't mean that someone who treats themselves well isn't capable of treating others badly as well. For example, someone who abuses alcohol may be able to control himself or herself around other people, but when he or she gets drunk, that's when his or her real self comes out. The same thing goes for people who abuse drugs or engage in other dangerous activities. They may have some control over their actions when they're sober, but when they get drunk or high, that control disappears.
Someone who self-destructs is likely to feel bad about himself or herself at some point during the process. When this person realizes what he or she has done, there are usually no others affected by the action, so there's no one else to hurt by his or her decisions.
Say it out loud: Pause: self-fulfillment of one's character or personality's capabilities. Realize: to make fully conscious; to bring into existence. So, self-realization is being aware of your full potential and realizing it.
Self-realization can be described as the completion of a person. It means that you have achieved what you are meant to achieve in this lifetime. You know who you are and you follow your heart's desires. Your daily life is consistent with your values and beliefs. You feel like you're living up to your full potential.
It's easy to think that someone who has not yet realized themselves is incomplete. But once they do, they are no longer necessary for society or themselves. They have fulfilled their role here and can move on.
There are many ways to realize yourself. You can learn a new skill and enjoy how it makes you feel. You can follow your passion and create a career around it. You can give back to your community or just relax after a hard day's work. There are so many possibilities when it comes to self-realization that only you can decide what works best for you.
You should always try to improve yourself every day.
