It’s time to ditch the negative thoughts and believe in yourself.

How a person views themselves is the strongest part of the personality, but it is also the biggest downfall. A good self image is important for a healthy mind and the key to creating a positive one is to believe in yourself.

Embrace the positives
Instead of accentuating the negatives, embrace the positives. Can’t complete the 10k without stopping? Applaud yourself for finding the determination to try in the first place.

Surround yourself by people who love you
Ditch the “bad” friends who try to bring you down and surround yourself with people who love you.

Remember your successes
Grab a piece of paper and write down all your successes. You will eventually see that you can achieve anything once you put your mind to it.

Be your own best friend – if you’re not nice to yourself, who will be?
