Self-centred - Taking Care Of You First!
Being self-centred is a good thing! In fact, it's vital!
When we think of someone as being self-centred, what they are, in fact, is self-obsessed. There is a difference. To be the best person you can be, to live at your fullest potential, you need to be self-centred. You need to be centred on self first.
By focussing on what is good for you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, by being centred on you, you ensure you are in the best condition to positively contribute to those around you.
Take the time and make the effort to know what is best for you and follow through. What is best for you physically? Physically as in your physical being – your body; and physically as in your physical location. What is best for you? Are you at your best or is there more you should be doing? Is your physical location good for you, or is it contributing to your being at less than your best?
What is best for you emotionally and mentally? Are there toxic people or substances in your life that are not contributing to what could be your best self? Who are, and what is the best for you emotionally and mentally? There is a perception that you resemble the five people you spend most of your time with. And it’s true. If you feel you are not being the best you that you could be, take a look at who you are spending most of your time with. And then think about the type of person you would like to emulate, the type of person you feel you could be.
Spiritually are you at your best? Are you taking care of yourself the best you can in regards to your beliefs? Regardless of what they are, if they are true for you let them guide you.
In order to positively affect those around you, and to contribute to the world you live in, you need to know what your strengths are and what you are good at. You also need to know what your weaknesses are, what your faults are, and determine the best way to perform within those parameters, or learn how to strengthen them.
All of this comes from living your life centred on you. When you are taken care of, and at the best you can possibly be, only then are you able to widen that circle to encompass others. So be self-centred. It’s not such a bad thing! As long as you don’t become self-obsessed!
