In as few words as possible, self-image is the idea you have of yourself.
-- It's that picture in your mind that radiates so vividly, all your goals, dreams, accomplishments, and failures. Your self-image dictates what you do from the moment you wake up, until you tuck down into the covers. Your self-image will determine your complete life's journey.
Humans are very visual creatures, and as visual creatures, we gravitate toward the things we see and relate to. Think of babies... They have a steady eye on their parents. As soon as mom or dad leaves the room, the child can very easily fall into a frantic attitude. -- The same goes for what we see in life. When what we want (love) to see is taken away, we easily become worried, distressed, and confused.
If you have a main goal or dream that you seriously desire to fulfill, yet the image of that end goal constantly gets obstructed, you'll easily find yourself in an uncomfortable position. You might not even understand what's truly wrong... Now you know.
It's cause you can't see. You can't see your goals, you can't see your dreams, and you can't see your desires becoming a reality. Sure, you'd like them to be real, and you're "working" towards them... Do you really believe?
That image you have has got to be clear, and it has to be something you really want. Make it the most successful thing you've ever seen, and work toward becoming that... Doesn't matter if you ever get there, the most important part, is that you do your best.
