Self esteem is an internal sense of worth. It reflects an inner confidence and self-respect and it shines outwardly by the actions one takes.
The self esteem which evolves on the inside is usually reflected on the outside. Your internal self worth which consists of your self-esteem, self confidence and self respect will become your external net worth. It is a matter of pride in who you are and the mentor you can be.
Compare an individual with strong self esteem and high net worth to another with weak one and low net worth. What are the obvious differences? Does self esteem play a major role? Of course, it does. It is the essence of a personality. Strong self esteem produces confidence in oneself.
Is it possible that positive self esteem is the basis for a celebrated mindset? A mindset is a certain attitude which may draw from either a positive or negative self esteem. Each individual attitude is the result of particular beliefs. What you believe to be true about yourself usually generates equivalent self confidence and self respect.
On a scale of 0 – 10 (low to high self esteem), how would you rate your level of self confidence and self respect? Calculate the average level of the three senses of worth? The conclusion is your self worth which ultimately determines your level of net worth as it pertains to business.
Please note there are ways to improve your self confidence and therefore, increase your level of self worth. I believe we all came into this world at a level ten self confidence. We were equal human beings regardless of race, religion, colour, nationality, sex, title or role.
However, our exposure to the outside world – family, religion, education, politics, etc. permits outside influences to over shadow our true self confidence. We have fashioned our own fears, limitations and boundaries on what we experience, see and hear.
Overtime our personal perceptions have been altered. Our self esteem is diminished and our self worth suddenly has limitations.
We are smart, educated adults and should be able to distinguish between fact and fiction. We need to go back and review our values as it relates to self esteem. We need to remove some of the baggage that has been holding us back, lowering our self-esteem, self confidence and self respect. We need to boost our self confidence by acknowledging our worth and managing our emotions. Our self confidence portrays our values and affects the choices we make.
Simply by changing our internal thinking, we can reclaim our self-esteem, self confidence and self respect and strive for a level ten self esteem as our standard. This is a level of self esteem from which to begin not end.
It is a known fact that if we don’t believe in ourselves, no one else will either. How we feel about ourselves, our self esteem, is reflected in our daily conversations, our body language and our abilities. We are responsible for our destiny and anything is possible with high quality self esteem.
There are ways to boost your self confidence. Begin by setting attainable goals for yourself. Make your dreams a reality. Accept support and encouragement from others. Learn from your mistakes.
It won’t take long before your self esteem is back to ten or more. Realistically, self respect is also the difference between success and failure. We all want success and therefore, we must do whatever it takes to boost our self esteem daily.
What results are you looking for? What actions must you take? What type of self confidence do you need to experience self worth?
You must believe in yourself – the most important person in the world. You are the all inclusive package of self esteem, self confidence and self respect. All three attributes equal your self worth and in turn, your self worth will translate externally into your net worth.
Where do you rate your self esteem? What are you worth?
