Nourish Your Self-Image
"All individuals are born without a sense of "self." We are like digital recorders or iPods without the key message -- with some pre-recorded facts and background music, but no central theme. We are like mirrors with no reflections. First through our senses, during infancy -- then through language and observation -- we record, build, and photograph our video, audio, and sensory images of ourselves. This recorded self-concept or self-image -- this mental picture of self -- when nourished and cultivated, is a primary field in which happiness and success grow and flourish.
