Self Esteem is not a skill but rather a choice. You should remember this statement from now on, because if you have this mindset you are already on your way to master this part of your life. Let me show you how important a rock solid self esteem really is: You can get the job you want to have, you can finally talk to your crush and arrange for a date and you can most important help other people to reach their goals in life by inspiring them. Your self esteem has a much bigger influence on almost every part of your life than you may be aware of. Your mood in the morning, your thoughts about your life, your job and your enviroment are all together a product of your self esteem. We all want to be the best we can be and conquer the world. Well, for many of us, all we do is conquering the world in our minds because the inner us is probably too shy and reserved to do what it takes to make this a reality. Obviously, this ends us making us lose out a lot in life for the simple reason that “conquering the world” needs us to act. So, what has been holding you back? Well, many things can explain this but one of them is a low self-esteem. A lack of self-esteem can also manifest itself in unhealthy unconscious behavioral patterns such as codependency or neediness. You can also attract into your life people or experiences that correlate to your subconscious beliefs. This lack of self-worth, if left unchecked, can take its toll on all aspects of daily life. The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way forever, you don't have to keep on repeating the same patterns that have probably been showing up in your life for years! We were all born into this World with unique gifts and talents and you are no different, the difference is maybe you have not opened up your magic box yet? The sad fact is that many people will live their whole lives with their box unopened because they don't feel worthy or are too scared of what people may think about them. Don't let this be you!

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
Is the well-being of a society dependent on the well-being of its citizenry? Does individual self-esteem play a causal role in chronic social problems such as child abuse, school drop-out rates, teenage pregnancy, alcohol and drug abuse, welfare dependency? In an attempt to answer these questions, the State of California established a task force on self-esteem and social responsibility in 1987. The aim of this body was to determine what connections might exist between these two factors and to suggest policy guidelines relating to the welfare of Californians and to the expenditure of public resources. The ten essays in this volume, prepared by faculty members of the University of California, draw on research in the social and behavioral sciences to explore these issues. They assess the substantive assertions and research findings in the field and make careful evaluations of their reliability and validity. In many cases strong connections between self-esteem and problematic behavior are established, in others the connections are weak, and in some the causal relationship is, as yet, imperfectly understood. One of the conclusions of the book is that research on these issues needs to be improved, particularly in the areas of comparative and longitudinal studies. Guidelines for future research are suggested, and some points of policy direction are elaborated. These essays may indeed promote additional research, for the premise that social stability and welfare are largely dependent on the psychological state of a people poses a challenging and provocative counter-emphasis to the assumption that social institutions are the primary determinants of individual welfare.
