Self Esteem, your ability to feel love and compassion for yourself, whatever the situation or circumstance you find yourself in.
Self Esteem is the foundation of our lives. It is the way we feel about ourselves.
A wise man once said “Do not build your house upon the sand, build it on rock”.
The meaning of that can be interpreted in different ways. But consider your house to mean your life and the choice of sand or rock to be your choice about the way you feel about yourself. How well are you going to do in relationships, in parenting, at work, if deep down inside you think you are a miserable worm. What sort of emotions is that going to create and what sort of life will you create for yourself and those around you. Not as good as you could I would suggest!
I will agree not everything is doom and gloom. So often we are happy when things are going well and unhappy when things are going badly.
Look at the statement at the top of the post again. Have I just described that? No, I have just described having your buttons pushed by every random thing that happens to you.
You can change that and I would like to show you how.
I run a course on the Power of Self Esteem and I call it “A Course in Happiness”.
