While much of what making up your self-image begins with external influences, your internal filters also play a large part. As, along the way, you can pick up a trend of negative self-talk and this internal dialogue creates patterns deep in our subconscious. Challenging this negative self-image is difficult, however, techniques like visualisation can enable you to build a better self-image.
