What is Esteem?

Esteem leads to confidence! 

What is esteem? – You can’t touch it, but it affects how you feel.  You can’t see it, but it’s there when you look in the mirror.  You can’t hear it, but it’s there every time you talk about yourself.  What is it you ask?  It’s your self-esteem!

Building your esteem is an important step towards your happiness and a more enriched life.  With it, you can truly be the person you wish to be.  Having self-esteem will increase your confidence, with confidence you will respect yourself and others.  This will go a long way to improving your relationships and becoming a happier, more balanced and accepting person.

Where does this esteem come from? – It comes from several sources:  From yourself, from others, family, friends and colleagues and lastly from your achievements.

By channelling your focus on the good things you do and all your great qualities, you will learn to love and accept yourself – the very basis for strong self-esteem.  In realising that you are valuable and important helps your esteem to grow and light up.  Having good self-esteem is also the pathway to making good choices about your mind, body and a healthy lifestyle.  Good self-esteem helps you know that every part of you is worth caring for and protecting.

Our self-esteem and self-image are developed by how we talk to ourselves.  People with self-esteem have confidence in themselves and have the ability to solve problems rather than worry about them.  They can confront or eliminate anything that frightens them.  More importantly, they know how to nurture themselves, thus enabling happiness, success and achievement.

Good self-esteem is important because it helps you to hold your head high and feel proud of yourself and what you can do.  It gives you the courage to try new things and the power to believe in yourself.  It lets you respect yourself, even when times are tough and you may feel things are not going well.  When you can respect yourself, others will follow.
