I know.... apologies! It's been ages since I last wrote but life just gets busier and busier. No complaints though because great progress is being made
Ok moving to the topic of my post. I just adore the above subject. In fact, I am completely fasciated by it. Why? well read on.
Self esteem is simply 'how much you like yourself'. Full stop. Why is that relevant to you? Well if you could imagine a Maslow type triangle for self esteem, in my opinion, you'd find this:
In a nutshell, self esteem determines how you feel about yourself. Your self worth vastly determines motivational activities like energy and enthusiasm, which in turn fuels your performance and therefore your results. If this link works well, then you arrive at your future self.... the life you actually want. The thing is, I meet and speak with people everyday with great skills or knowledge but are under achieving in their lives (and not earning their true worth) because of low self worth.
So, that is the importance of self esteem. Where is yours?
If you feel that yours is low, then take action and begin improving it today. There are many things you can do. If you want a suggestion from me. Look at the things you do well and applaud yourself constantly. Ask for a compliment from your loved one and/or co-worker.... and cherish it. Sales training will also say, tell yourself that you love yourself consistently throughout the day. Might as well try it, you have nothing to lose.
That's all for now folks!
Have a fab day.
