Start to love yourself.

Avoiding life… because of low self esteem?

Self esteem is crucial and is a cornerstone of a positive attitude towards living
It is very important because it affects how you think, act and even how you relate to other people. It affects your potential to be successful. Low self esteem means poor confidence and that also causes negative thoughts which mean that you are likely to give up easily rather than face challenges. In addition, it has a direct bearing on your happiness and wellbeing.

What is Self Esteem?
Self esteem is your opinion of yourself. High self esteem is a good opinion of yourself and low self esteem is a bad opinion of yourself.

I think self esteem is central to everything you do. It affects your behavior and thoughts. It changes how you feel about and value yourself.

Can you imagine anything else so important?

Why should self esteem matter to you?


• Self esteem can be the difference between success and failure

• Self esteem can affect your thinking, causing your outlook to be positive or negative

• Self esteem affects your confidence

• It affects your self image

• If you do not value yourself how will you be able to value others?

• Self esteem enables you to have the right attitude to succeed at work

• It affects your happiness

Let's take a moment or two to look a bit more closely at what I’ve said above and then I hope that you will appreciate just how important self esteem is to you.

Your potential to achieve what you most desire is directly related to your self esteem. On the other hand, failure is much more likely when you suffer from low self esteem because you will believe others when they tell you why you cannot succeed. Work on building your self esteem and success can be that much easier because you will be helping yourself.

I'm sure you realize the importance of positive thinking. Increase your esteem and you will become more positive. This will benefit you in every area of your life.

Start to love yourself. Celebrate the Person You Are

What do you want for you?

You have your own dreams and goals;
Just remember what a wise man once said and you will not be lead astray…
”your heart is free…have the courage to follow it”.

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

~W. Clement Stone quotes
