Self-esteem is essential for psychological survival. It is an emotional sine qua non - without some measure of self-worth, life can be enormously painful, with many basic needs going unmet. One of the main factors differentiating humans from other animals is the awareness of self: the ability to form an identity and then attach a value to it. In other words, you have the capacity to define who you are and then decide if you like that identity or not. The problem of self-esteem is this human capacity for judgment. It's one thing to dislike certain colors, noises, shapes, or sensations. But when you reject parts of yourself, you greatly damage the psychological structures that literally keep you alive. Judging and rejecting yourself causes enormous pain. And in the same way that you would favor and protect a physical wound, you find yourself avoiding anything that might aggravate the pain of self-rejection in any way. You take fewer social, academic, or career risks. You make it more difficult for yourself to meet people, interview for a job, or push hard for something where you might not succeed. You limit your ability to open yourself with others, express your sexuality, be the center of attention, hear criticism, ask for help, or solve problems.This book is about stopping the judgments. It's about healing the old wounds of hurt and self-rejection. How you perceive and feel about yourself can change. And when those perceptions and feelings change, the ripple effect will touch every part of your life with a gradually expanding sense of freedom. ---- Self-Esteem
Positive self-esteem is the starting point of all achievements. If you are not able to believe in yourself, how can you expect other people to do so? Self-esteem is not what other people think you are - it is the way you think you are. It is built from birth and, contrary to what many people imagine, can be changed consciously or unconsciously at any stage of life. Positive self-image is very important, because all your actions depend on it. If it is high, your output increases in direct proportion. Positive self-esteem leads to confident actions and right decisions. Negative self-esteem leads to confident actions and right decisions. Negative self-esteem leads to lack of self-confidence, timidity and procrastination during decision-making. The real you is a unique being with enormous potential for experiencing and extending love, both toward yourself as well as to others. As you self-esteem grows, this real person emerges. You begin to take risks and not be afraid of failure; you are not as concerned about the approval of others; your relationships are more rewarding; you pursue activities that bring you joy and satisfaction; and you will make a positive contribution to the world. Most importantly, high self-esteem brings you peace of mind... you truly appreciate the person you are. Every person has the capacity for high self-esteem. The question is, are you ready to make a commitment to increasing your self-esteem? You must have the spirit to accept yourself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world - making the most of yourself.

Self-esteem. Not only does it affect our identity and values, but also our feelings and actions in a variety of circumstances. Yet, after years of investigation, little of practical value has been learned about its nature. Self-Esteem and Meaning brings a new approach to the study of self-esteem. It presents case studies based on extended interviews with middle- and working-class individuals. Weaving together the subjects' frank and often poignant accounts of their own lives are the author's observations on the linguistic and semiotic principles that reveal the coherence and meaningfulness of these accounts. The book also contributes to the methodological effort to develop a humanistic yet rigorous social science. Those interested in the structure of meaning and the nature of self will find it of value. In addition, the book provides an enlightening discussion of the interview method.
Focuses on building greater self-esteem and spirituality, with practical suggestions on techniques for bringing satisfaction and joy into one's everyday life
