invest in yourselfWhen you want to have a successful life it’s extremely important that you make yourself a priority means not having an attitude towards others or comparing yourself to some external reference point. It means taking care of yourself first before you take care of others. This might be one of the hardest things we can possibly do, but once you get used to it, it’s one of the most rewarding things that we can do. Taking care of yourself first means that you take care of your emotional self. Investing in yourself gives you permission to take the quiet time you need to regroup to energize yourself.

If you really don’t know how to take care of yourself, treat yourself as if you are royalty. You don’t have to do anything expensive, just know and treat yourself like you’re a VIP (Very Important Person). Act as if you yourself are the cherished love that you always wanted or get that most precious toy you never got when you were a child; make light of it! Be fun! Go get chocolate ice cream if you like chocolate ice cream or your favorite treat! I love going to my favorite fresh and healthy food restaurant for dinner.

If your life has been anything like mine you’ve probably been told that you’re different, you don’t quite fit in, you don’t act normal. That’s okay because you really are completely unique, valuable, precious, and rare. It’s the very ”different” that you are that makes you great when you want to have a successful life. You are rising above the rest who prefer to have a mediocre life.

You can begin with treasuring your body. Focus on the attributes that you do like about your body even if you just like your eyebrows or your fingers or just one piece of yourself just start somewhere. If you truly want to have high self-esteem and you want to like your body, ignore the insanity that’s on television; avoid the marketing propaganda that they put out there trying to make you feel bad.

Taking care of yourself gives you the passion, energy and desire to help others from an abundant source rather than from an exhausted point where you feel you have to do everything for everybody. You are valuable, precious and rare and only you can provide the unique spark that nobody else has. Radiate your light and your life will start flowing.
