Self-Esteem is ….
Your ability to feel love and compassion for yourself, whatever the situation or circumstance you find yourself in.
That is a pretty simple thing to do isn’t it? Just love yourself!
You might see from the above that there are plenty of occasions where that is easier said than done. If you look at those occasions you might also see that those occasions are prompted by events that happen outside of you.
Things we have no control over are responsible for making us feel bad about ourselves. Correct?
Well I’m sorry but not correct, at least no so correct as we might think. It might suit us to blame some of our bad feelings on others, life or our bodies, but it isn’t very empowering. In many cases those events, those shocks from life and our reactions to them are pointing us in a direction which, if we only knew how to use them, could significantly improve our experience of life.
In the Power of Self Esteem, we will show you how to take those shocks and turn them into something positive that you can use for yourself and others. Not only will we show you, we will work through it with you and send you home with the tools and resources to repeat the process every time your self-esteem gets knocked off course.
What can this course give you?
The Power of Self Esteem is the dynamic energy of a person who is standing in their true authority, connected with the creative power that is at the heart of our being.
This is the place of authenticity, spontaneity and courage. This is also the source of our tenderness and compassion. From here springs all our joy in life, as well as the determination to persevere, to partner and to create the life we most want to live.
These are not the qualities of super-heroes or movie stars, but qualities of character, and the connection they are built on can be made or lost, deepened or enhanced at any time, once we understand what fosters it and what gets in its way.
Self-esteem is our idea of our own basic worth, and it has its roots in our childhood. Early on, our sense of value is associated with the positive regard of others or linked with our achievements. We may accomplish much in later life yet feel dissatisfied because our self-esteem still depends on our next success or failure. It is as if we ‘missed something’ – life seems like a treadmill, lacking in real excitement or purpose. The Power of Self Esteem shows you how to identify this deeply-rooted system of beliefs, and develop a new kind of awareness of who, and what, you really are.
The Power of Self Esteem will transform the way you express yourself in the world. Instead of struggling to deal with unconscious demands about the way you ought to be, you become free to be as you are. And, as you learn to distinguish true self-esteem from the endless cycle of reward and punishment to which it has become attached, you will connect more deeply with what you really want for yourself and your life and start to express yourself with a new kind of passion and power.
