Likewise, your positive self-image can have a direct influence on the people with whom you interact. If they see a happier, more positive you, then they are likely to emulate your behavior.
Extended periods of idleness can lead to negative thoughts and a very negative self-image. By contrast, physical and mental activity tends to promote self-satisfaction, which builds one’s positive mental attitude.

Does a Positive Self-Image Help You Become More Goal Oriented!by Phil Schembra on February 27, 2014
A positive self-image is a confidence builder. It gives you added self-assurance in your dealings with people. There is a chain reaction associated with positive feelings and successful happenings. Everything you do becomes consistent with your self-image and carries over into other things you plan to do.
Improved attitude and job productivity result when you have created and maintained a positive inner strength. You will be more optimistic and willing to take risks, to “go for it.” A positive self-image makes you goal-oriented and self-motivated to act on those things in life which are important to you.

Doing it right should always be your goal and objective, and you can take satisfaction from knowing that you are trying. For some, the effort, itself, becomes a form of achieved excellence because they try to do it right, whether or not they actually make it. So be persistent in your efforts to achieve excellence.
