The Importance of the "Me Factor"

Sometimes a little love for yourself can do the trick.

Self-confidence is one of the most important success strategies in our lives. When our needs and worries are met and we feel value in our lives, we then can begin living a happier and more fufilling life.

Sam Davis, Professional says, "having your own personal needs met is important because when you're worrying about your job, or school, or things in your life, you don't have the ability to open yourself up to new people or experiences. When all you can think about is what's going on, adding a new relationship is just another item on your to-do list." 

Davis says relationships, which are very important to human happiness, cannot occur in a balanced way when one person is feeling stressed and overrun by their own lives. This plays into how having your own needs and things in your life sorted out first can open up opportunities for happiness in other parts of your life.

Tony Trim, Marketing Senior at the University of Oklahoma says, "self-confidence, to me, means confiding in myself. I try to tell me all of my secrets." Although a humorous play on words, Trim brings up a good argument that you cannot be okay with yourself and the decisions you make if you put up a front and don't live honestly. 

Not being honest with yourself and living behind a facade can really influence your happiness. Some of the most influential people in our world who seem to have everything put together, are some we know to have the most insane breakdowns. 

Bryan McDonald, Vice President of Sales and Service at T.D. Williamson says, "Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. Feeling good about the choices you make are the secrets to success... You can't move forward unless you have your integrity."

Integrity, not only in your work but also in your personal relationships, is very essential to a "successful life." If there are regrets and secrets in your life, it's just like bottling up your emotions and not allowing yourself to live an honest life.
