Here’s a fact. There is a multi-billion dollar industry that operates solely on making you believe one thing. That one thing is so pervasive, that although we know it’s a lie, most of us buy into it both literally and figuratively.
That lie is this-
You are so ugly you shouldn’t be seen without a vale.
You are actually in some way, or many ways deformed.
You look old and beyond your prime.
The beauty industry is multifaceted. It is the cosmetics industry, the skincare industry, the hair industry, the health and fitness industry, and the fashion industry. The beauty industry makes billions of dollars annually worldwide. It has the best PR firms, advertising agencies, the media, and the celebrities at its disposal to sell you the lie. You are bombarded daily with hundreds of messages that remind you how hideous you actually are.
The people who peddle this lie have a lot at stake and are good at telling you what to think about yourself, and other women.
There is a big issue in our society today. Women are packaged, they are objectified, and merchandised and marketed as things. Most of us don’t like it but don’t know what to do about it. However, the solution is remarkably simple and it starts with you.
It’s time we start maybe the greatest social experiment of our time and that experiment is this:
Every single time you look in the mirror, you tell yourself you are beautiful.
Every single time for a full year.
It might not seem true at first, but that’s OK. It’s just unfamiliar.
The more you tell yourself how to see yourself the less you will buy into the billion dollar lie.
It’s certain that as you do this, every single time you look in the mirror, after only a few days you will see yourself differently. After a few weeks, you will show up differently in the world. After a year, I’m guessing you won’t recognize the woman you were before.
Start today and watch the miracle unfold for all of us.
