A few months ago I had a poll on the sidebar of Live Bold and Bloom asking people their most debilitating low confidence issue.
The majority of responders listed lack of confidence about their appearance.
Most people wonder on a daily basis, “Am I attractive enough?” In a culture than places so much emphasis on youth and beauty, and with the media constantly bombarding us with images of airbrushed, flawless faces and bodies, it’s no wonder we feel insecure.
Less than 2% of the population actually meets that standard of physical attractiveness, while the majority of us feel bad about ourselves because we aren’t in the two percent. What’s wrong with that picture? Shouldn’t the 98% of us set the standards for acceptable attractiveness?
Yet we all stand in front of the mirror, analyzing our wrinkles, expanding waistlines, balding heads, cellulite, quirky features, or whatever we happen to perceive as our physical flaws. We worry over these flaws, wonder how we can “fix” them, and do what we can to cover them up, to prevent others from noticing how far from perfect we are.
But the truth about attractiveness has little to do with physical appearance. Please watch my video below in which I share three strategies for boosting your confidence about your appearance.
