Why does self-love matter when it comes to achieving your goals and being successful?

Of course, we have all heard about the importance of self-love for your well-being, your happiness, etc… But self-love has a broader impact on your life and your ability to achieve your goals, to have healthy relationships, be healthy, be successful and even impacts your pocket book.

Why you may ask?

Let’s first define self-love. I like the very simple definition that the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation provides:

  • Talking to and about yourself with love

  • Prioritizing yourself

  • Giving yourself a break from self-judgement

  • Trusting yourself

  • Being true to yourself

  • Being nice to yourself

  • Setting healthy boundaries

  • Forgiving yourself when you aren’t being true or nice to yourself

Now you are probably curious how that relates to your pocket book or your ability to achieve any personal or professional goals.

Let’s remind ourselves first that everything is energy. Albert Einstein stated “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

If we want to attract love in our life, we must first emit an energy of love. No-one can love someone else if they don’t love themselves first because not only do we project our own criticism onto others, but we also emit that negative energy out which repels love. We will invariably find a way to sabotage that relationship… So let’s start by accepting ourselves, accepting that we are perfect as we are with our own perfect imperfections. Let’s learn to love our uniqueness and change our perception of what we may consider “faults” and start looking at how those can be strengths.

Have you ever met a leader, I mean a true leader that you admire, that does not radiate self-confidence? It’s because they radiate self-love. They know themselves and they love themselves, and their loving energy is what you feel, that is why you want to follow that leader, you feel loved, respected, etc…

When you love yourself, you treat yourself well and therefore learn to treat others well, you stop judging yourself and judge others less, you trust yourself. Imagine all the things you would do if you trusted yourself more and went for your true dreams, your true goals! When you love yourself, you are true to yourself. You let your inner self be – you are shameless. Your creative self thrives, and guess what, this is when success follows. When you practice self-love, you create those healthy boundaries which help you reject anything that is not aligned with your goal, you stay focused and are much more apt to succeed. When you love yourself, you are not afraid of failure, because you know you will get right back up and keep going. When you love yourself, you forgive yourself – you stop living in the past and start living in the present, you enjoy life and the journey you are on, regardless of the bumps you encounter.

If you want to transform your life, start practicing self-love and make sure to talk to yourself lovingly. See yourself blossom, become stronger every day, see your true self grow and realize the power that is within you and all that you are able to create.
