Self Image for Kids
I wanted to post today about self-image because I don’t know if you’ve been following along, but we’ve been doing kids mindset training and it’s actually day 30 on their mindset training and I’ve stated before their remarkable progress that we’ve been seeing just spending 30 minutes a day, sometimes longer like tonight because it was the end of the first 30 days.
We have just started a new topic and our new topic for this next 30 days is about self-image and I want to tell a story about a farmer that I just heard. It’s funny because you think, “What does a farmer have to do with self-image?” Well, I’m going to tell you what a farmer has to do with self-image.

I Can Help You Work On Your Self Image
If you haven’t visited my blog before, my name is Dianna Good Sky and I like to help entrepreneurs, well anyone actually, I like to help anyone get into their best life, get into the best mindset to create the life you love and to create your own #beautiFULLife. That’s what I like to do and we’ve been experimenting, I’ve been teaching the children how to do some of the same things that I’ve used for success and it’s just remarkable.
Tonight, the story of the farmer has to do with self image and self-image is how you see yourself?
Apparently, the story goes that a farmer was out doing his thing in his field. It was a pumpkin patch and the pumpkin patch, he found a jug in the middle of the pumpkin patch and that he decided just for whatever, grins and giggles I guess you could say. He decided for grins and giggles just to put the pumpkin, the small pumpkin that had started growing inside the jug.
He was very careful not to make sure or to make sure that he did not mess up the vine so it could still grow. Here it is. Time passed. I don’t know how long it takes to grow a pumpkin, but time passed and when he came across the jug, the pumpkin had literally grown inside that glass jug to the exact shape and form that the jug was so the pumpkin instead of being round and pretty and whatever, it was the shape of the jug.
Self image is like that. Our self-image is all about what do we see ourselves as and that is exactly what we become. Whatever we see ourselves as, whatever we think of ourselves as, that is exactly what we grow into and that is exactly what we become. If we have limited self image, if we have limiting beliefs about who we are or can be, that self image actually we grow into just that.
It’s really important to be very mindful about what your self image is so that you can … Because you have control over that. The difference between that glass jug and that pumpkin and our self-image is that we can change our self-image and we can adapt and adjust and overcome anything we want to create a new self image.
What we did with the kids is first we identified what we think about ourselves.
- What characteristics?
- What traits do we have?
- What do we think of ourselves?
and then what we did, we did an exercise about how to … Who can we think of, that maybe has the traits that we want in ourselves or that we want to grow.
Who do we want to be and I talked to them … I talked about copying it. Copying a trait, a personally trait or character trait, if it’s what allows you to grow into the person that you want to be, that’s not saying you’re copying that person exactly.
That’s not saying like, “Oh, I want to be like Oprah Winfrey exactly.”
No, you probably just have a few points about Oprah that you might want to emulate, very different from just copying, but you do want to emulate those character traits. Being able to identify which character trait from who is important to you is the first step in starting to grow into your new self image.
If you spend some time, let’s pick a character trait of Oprah in that she’s impactful. Her work is impactful, is important or say let’s pick somebody less … Say you want to be a positive thinker. Say you want to make good decisions. Who do you know that makes good swift decisions? Then you can say to yourself, “Okay, I want John Doe’s decision making process or his etc … I want to make decisions like John Doe.”
Whatever those character traits are that you want, you can then help yourself become like that by revisiting daily, this is what we’re going to do for the next 30 days, revisiting daily the image that we’ve created, that we want … Look, it doesn’t have to be just one. The kids aren’t doing one, but if you’re going to do this and I want to encourage you to do it, identify traits of people that you admire and respect.
If there’s four different traits from four different people, alive or dead, it doesn’t matter, but that you know enough that is what you want to be like or you want to have those traits, then write those down and then take some time and then act as if you already have those traits. Act as if you already have those traits because that is what allows us to really get into the, “How do I become exactly who I want to become?”
I want to reiterate here. You’ve probably heard this saying before, but you cannot accomplish anything on mere hopes and wishes and dreams. You have to really believe that you can. The first step to believing that you can do anything or that you can become the person that you want to become or do the things you want to, comes with the knowledge and the decision that that’s what you’re going to do.
Follow it up with creating new habits that allow you to then move forward in creating the habits and moving forward into exactly what you were wanting to accomplish or exactly who you wanted to be like so that you could then accomplish them. Does that make sense? I want to encourage you to really pay attention to what your self image is.
Take some time. Write a whole lot of things … Write as many things as you can down to what is my self-image, but who do I want to become?
Who do I really want to be like and take some time identifying who is like that that you might be able to emulate and then visualize yourself.
Those are the three steps.
Identify who has it and then visualize yourself being like that that you wanted. You can change your personality. You can change your whole demeanor depending on doing that every day, imagining every chance you get. If you want to be a speaker on a stage, every chance you get you imagine yourself just, “I’m there. I’m changing people’s lives.” Can you tell that’s mine?
If you want to be an author, imagine signing books like one of your most revered author friends or people that you know or admire. If you want to be an actor or an actress, imagine yourself a comedian, imagine yourself being like Jim Carrey. Whatever it is, whoever it is, take the time and start imagining yourself being in that position, having those traits and soon you will find that you have adopted the same things that they have that you want.
That my friends is creating your self image to be able to accomplish and do anything that you want according to what you’re thinking about.
