  6. 6. Women In The Media •Women are used much more than men •Media teaches women to measure themselves in terms of physical appearance •Standards of beauty are unattainable for most women •Media uses young females who are on strict diets or starving to portray the images of beauty •Young women see models in the media and feel the need to look like them to be attractive
  7. 7. TWO TYPES OF FUNCTIONS: MANIFEST FUNCTION •Can be applied to the desired intent of the advertiser •They use the human image and its sexuality to create interest in a product by appealing to the desires of the person •Pictures of beautiful models are shown in hopes that the viewer will see it and think that they need the product to obtain that level of human perfection •Has proven itself over time to be effective LATENT FUNCTION Unrecognized by the media Consumers can view any fashion magazine and see multiple adds with subliminal, if not direct, messages “In 1992, the ten most popular magazines most commonly read by men and women were reviewed for ads and articles related to weight loss.

  13. 13. STEPS TO BUID A POSITIVE SELF IMAGE:  Take Inventory: Make a list of all your strengths and Weaknesses.  Set Goals.  Associate with people of High Moral Character.  Accept Responsibility.  Give yourself Positive Autosuggestions.
  14. 14. DEFINITION: SELF CONFIDENCE Self confidence relates to self-assuredness in one’s personal judgment, ability ,power etc. Freedom from doubt; belief in yourself and your abilities. Famous Quote on Self Confidence by Raj Persaud “Promiseyourself, no matter how difficult the problem life throws at you, that you will try as hard as you can to help yourself. You acknowledge that sometimes your efforts to help yourself may not result in success, as often being properly rewarded is not in your control”.
  15. 15. How to build Self Confidence: 12 Steps 1. RECOGNIZE YOUR INSECURITIES  Whatever is making you feel unworthy, ashamed, or inferior, identify it, give it a name, and write it down. You can also tear these written pieces to start feeling positive on those points. 2. TALK TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES  Get to the root of the problem, speak to someone to let it out and make it easier. Learn to accept yourself.
  16. 16. 4. IDENTIFY YOUR SUCCESSES 3.BOUNCE BACK FROM YOUR MISTAKES  Remember that no one is perfect. Even the most confident people have insecurities. At some point in any of our lives, we may feel we lack something. That is reality.  Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which you excel, then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission to take pride in them. Give yourself credit for your successes.
  17. 17.   A lot of the times, at the root of insecurity and lack of confidence is a feeling of not having enough of something, whether it's emotional validation, good luck, money, etc. By acknowledging and appreciating what you do have, you can combat the feeling of being incomplete and unsatisfied. Finding that inner peace will do wonders for your confidence. 5. BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE
  18. 18. 6. BE POSITIVE   Avoid self-pity, or the pity and sympathy of others. Never allow others to make you feel inferior-they can only do so if you let them. If you continue to loathe and belittle yourself, others are going to do and believe likewise. Instead, speak positively about yourself, about your future, and about your progress. 7. ACCEPT COMPLAINTS GRACEFULLY  Don't roll your eyes and say, "Yeah, right," or shrug it off. Take it to heart and respond positively("Thank you" and a smile works well).
  19. 19. 8. LOOK AT THE MIRROR AND SMILE   Studies surrounding what's called the "facial feedback theory" suggest that the expressions on your face can actually encourage your brain to register certain emotions. So by looking in the mirror and smiling every day, you might feel happier with yourself and more confident in the long run. 9. FAKE IT  Along the same lines of smiling to make yourself feel happy, acting confident might actually make you believe it. Pretend you're a completely confident version of you; go through the motions and see how you feel!
  20. 20. 10. STICK TO YOUR PRINCIPLES   It might be tough, but if you don't have something you can believe in, you don't have anything. If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything. No matter what's happened in your life, you can always lay claim to the fact that from this day forward, you've followed your principles to the best of your ability. 11. HELP OTHERS  When you know you're kind to the people around you, and are making a positive difference in other people's lives (even if it's just being kinder to the person who serves you coffee in the morning), you'll know that you are a positive force in the world--which will boost your self confidence.
  21. 21. 12. AVOID PERFECTIONISM  Perfectionism paralyzes you and keeps you from accomplishing your goals.
  22. 22. BASIC NEEDS THAT FORM OUR IDENTITY 1. Need to Feel Loved & Accepted: • A sense of Belonging 2. Need to Feel Valued & Acceptable: • A sense of Worthiness 3. Need to Feel Adequate: • A sense of Competence
