It may well be the biggest problem in the world!
It results in the loss of more relationships and jobs, creates more domestic abuse and drug addicts, and sends more people to prison than any other cause.
What is it? A low self-esteem.
Self-esteem is how a person feels about themselves. A person with high self-esteem has a very positive self-image. Whereas a person with low self-esteem has more negative feelings about themselves.
Low self-esteem can result in a number of maladaptive or antisocial behaviors such as hypersensitivity to criticism, defensiveness, chronic indecisiveness, self-sabotage, an excessive desire to please others, or strong perfectionist tendencies. Individuals with low self-esteem may display one or more of these behaviors at different times and in different situations.
If that describes you (or maybe someone close to you), it’s time to BREAK OUT of your prison of low self-esteem!
There is no such thing as the “perfect amount” of self-esteem. Individual thoughts of self-worth are closely related to personality development. What might be right for one personality might not be ideal for another.
But there’s not doubt that self-esteem is important for success in life. In a highly competitive, individual-oriented, free-market society, people are expected to “sell themselves” to establish relationships with individuals such as potential employers or prospective mates.
Here are 21 proven ways to start building your self esteem TODAY!
