What is your Self Image?

According to our last post, children who had a positive upbringing were considered to have a healthy self esteem and made better choices in life compared to those that were not.

Does that mean that if you were one of those unfortunate kids, your life is a predetermined failure?   No!! Our last post arose a few controversial topics; as a result this post will give you more awareness into the topic.

If you were one of the readers who perceived your parent different after reading this, we hope it was for good and not bad. In other words, if you had a bad childhood, that means your parents or caretakers did not know any better. Even worst, they were probably treated worst than you.

The good news is, we can change!! The under 5 year old is a MYTH!! In his book “Evolve your Brain,” neuroscientist Dr. Joe Dispenza has spent decades studying the human mind―how it works, how it stores information, and why it perpetuates the same behavioral patterns over and over.






Evolve Your Brain presents this information in depth, while helping you take control of your mind, explaining how thoughts can create chemical reactions that keep you addicted to patterns and feelings―including ones that make you unhappy. And when you know how these bad habits are created, it's possible to not only break these patterns, but also reprogram and evolve your brain, so that new, positive, and beneficial habits can take over.

To prove that we can rewire the brain, a study was done with a three groups of university students measuring their neural activity. Group 1 was asked to play the piano, group number 2 was asked to visualize playing the piano and group 3 was asked to just think about the piano. What happened? Group 1 and 2 had the same neural activity, which means that mentally doing something is as effective as actually doing it. The third group was not effective.

How does this tie into the “under 5 year old myth?” We can begin to see ourselves differently and the brain can be rewired, of course it requires more work and careful study and time compared to a healthy upbringing but it CAN be ATTAINED!.

Three Reasons Teachers are not to Blame

Why Do we blame the teachers?

Parents and Society look at our teachers to make sure our kids are educated and prep for the world. However; more often than not, we are disappointed when things do not go the way we expected.

In his book Psycho- Cybernetics, Dr. Maltz talked about the healthy self image we should instill in ourselves and those that we interact with. As teachers know, the first 5 years of a child’s experience plays an important role in their lives. We can tell how well we were nurtured by the way we handle our emotions and responsibilities as adults.

Why do some adults young or old stay in abusive relationships? We do some commit crimes and others overdose or use drugs? According to Dr. Maltz, if we grew up with a poor self-image, we make poor choices in life and our self worth becomes weak and dependant on others.


Whereas; when we see other adults who are responsible, emotionally intelligent and it seems that they are enjoying life, we sometimes think they are lucky or born with a silver spoon.

So how can we change this paradigm? We can by making a difference at the age it matters the most. When teachers, parents and society start instilling belief and confidence in our kids at a young age, this solves most of the problems we face as adults.

A healthy self image is vital to our self-esteem, confidence and success in life. Dr. Maltz was a plastic surgeon who noticed the difference after people got surgery. He explained, when his patient fixed his nose, he atomically became a different person not afraid to socialize or date. What changed? His self-image. Dr. Maltz studied his patients which lead him to write his book Psycho-Cybernetics.

How does American Heart Saver play a role in this? American Heart Saver Institute has decided to give a percentage of our profits to the “Better Parenting” Program. This program educates parents and teachers on how to change the paradigm with our kids by encouraging a Healthy Self Image at the age it matters the most.

As adults, we remember those that said “you are beautiful” “you can sing” “you are smart” “you are a great dancer” What we say or do to our kids matters! Please keep it positive smiley
