#Self #esteem

*Strategies For Building Self-Esteem*

*What is Self-Esteem?*

Most people's thoughts and feelings about themselves fluctuate somewhat based on their daily experiences. The grade you get on an exam, how your friends treat you, ups and downs in a romantic relationship can all have a temporary impact on how you feel about yourself.

Your self-esteem, however, is something more fundamental than the normal ups and downs associated with situational changes. For people with good self-esteem, normal ups and downs may lead to temporary fluctuations in how they feel about themselves, but only to a limited extent. In contrast, for people with poor self-esteem, these ups and downs drastically impact the way they see themselves.

*Poor vs. Healthy Self-Esteem*

People with poor self-esteem often rely on how they are doing in the present to determine how they feel about themselves. They need positive external experiences (e.g., compliments from friends) to counteract the negative feelings and thoughts that constantly plague them. Even then, the good feeling (such as from a good grade or compliment) is usually temporary.

Healthy self-esteem is based on our ability to assess ourselves accurately and still be accepting of who we are. This means being able to acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses (we all have them!) and at the same time recognize that we are worthy and worthwhile.

*Where Does Self-Esteem Come From?*

Our self-esteem evolves throughout our lives as we develop an image of ourselves through our experiences with different people and activities.

Experiences during childhood play a particularly large role in the shaping of self-esteem. When we were growing up, our successes, failures, and how we were treated by our family, teachers, coaches, religious authorities, and peers, all contributed to the creation of our self-esteem.

*Childhood experiences that contribute to healthy self-esteem include:*

Being listened to

Being spoken to respectfully

Getting appropriate attention and affection

Having accomplishments be recognized and mistakes or failures be acknowledged and accepted

*Childhood experiences that may lead to low self-esteem include:*

Being harshly criticized

Being physically, sexually, or emotionally abused

Being ignored, ridiculed, or teased

Being expected to be perfect all the time.

People with low self-esteem were often given messages from parents, teachers, peers, or others' failed experiences (losing a game, getting a poor grade, etc.) were failures of their whole self

"If you are suffering, you are growing."

Michael Bernard Beckwith shared two concepts which intrigued me. The two concepts are "Kensho" and "Satori."

What is Kensho?

When we are going through some tough phases of your life.Phases could be because of the financial situation, health issues, relationship issues, break-ups, career issues etc we are developing new awareness, Insights about life. The learnings which we have never thought, happens during that phase. If you are bankrupt, you learn to start valuing money, you start valuing what you have in life. If you are sick, you start appreciating your body, if you are losing someone, you start understanding their values in your life. This are called "Kensho" moments. Kensho always helps us to find our inner strength,shows us the wisdom we have never imagined and helps us grow.

When we grow through resources that are available to us, it's "Satori." Whenever you getting new wisdom through reading books, from online courses, by meeting new people, those are Satori moments.
We can improve our resilience by focusing more on Satori, and it will help us to handle Kensho moments. Gratitude is one of the best and the easiest ways to improve Satori.

What Kensho moments you are going through today?

What Satori Moments you are creating for yourself?

#Pace vs. #Potential

*Pace vs. Potential*

Have you ever noticed a strange thing when you get off the highway onto an off ramp or side road?

On the highway you're doing about 100 kmph an hour, and the speed limit on the side road says 60 kmph an hour. You hit the brakes, and think you may have slowed down to 60 kmph. Yet, you're still doing 80kmph.

Horrors! You were sure you'd slowed down enough and yet you haven't.

You're experiencing *pace vs. potential.*

If you were driving at 60kmph before you hit the off ramp, you'd do 60kmph quite easily. It's because you were oh-so-fast, that you ended doing an 80. But how the heck are you going to ever do an 80 in your life, if you don't hit 100?

Because when you're on 100, even your hit-the-brake speed is a good 80.

People hate to be pushed

They want to go at their own pace. They believe they know what's good for them. Yet your life is like a car. You don't know your potential till you really hit the accelerator. You don't know how far you can go unless you feel the tires steaming up.

Look around you. The little ol' lady in the next lane is still getting to her destination, but she'll get there whenever. At her own pace. Pace is great. But potential, that's when you really know the stuff you're made of.

Tiger is the best golfer in the world. Because his coach knows the pace of Tiger. But the coach pushes Tiger to his potential.

The difference between pace and potential isn't always a big gap. Try it. It will make a world of a difference in both your business as well as your personal life.


1. Pace is good. But pace is you. And goodness gracious, you don't really know yourself as well as you think you do.

2. Potential is when you hit the accelerator. When you find what is really possible to achieve. Once you know what you can achieve you're breaking the speed limit.

3. Tiger is naturally talented. Yeah right. So are a squillion other golfers. The difference between Tiger and the others is Tiger doesn't keep to the pace of the others. He keeps stretching his own potential. You should too.

#Ignore #labels #loyalty

During a prank,

A student stuck a paper on his classmate's back that said "I'm stupid"; he asked the rest of the class not to tell him.

Thus, the students began laughing throughout the day... Shortly after, math class started and their professor wrote a difficult question on the board.

No one was able to answer it except that student. Amid the slight laughs, for he didn't know why, he walked towards the board and he solved it. The teacher asked the class to clap and removed the paper on his back.

He told him, "It seems that you don't know about the paper on your back that one of your classmates put and the rest of them kept it a secret."

Then, he faced towards the rest of the class and said, "Before I give you a punishment, I will tell you two things: throughout your life, people will put labels on your back with many bad things written on it to stop your progress.

If he had known about the paper, he would not have answered.

All you have to do is ignore it. Ignore the labels people give you and use every chance you have to progress, learn and improve yourself."

"The 2nd thing is that it's clear that he does not have any loyal friends among you all to tell him about removing the paper. It does not matter how many friends you have, it is the loyalty between you and your friends that matter !!!

YOU talk to yourself more than anyone else in your entire lifetime...

How are you talking to yourself about you?
Are you your own friend?
Are you loving the conversation?
Are you celebrating your beauty?
Are you encouraging your wholeness? The inner dialogue you have with your thoughts affects everything about your well being.
Choose your words because your cells... are all listening!

*Create health, abundance, and joy through kindness to you...from YOU!*⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
