Our self-esteem is the difference between living the life that we have now and the one that we dream about. There is a very simple test that you can perform that will tell you what your self-esteem is. When you stand in front of a mirror can you tell yourself how amazing, brilliant and incredible you are? How comfortable do you feel telling this to yourself? Can you even stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself?
You see, the more comfortable you feel standing in front of a mirror and saying that you are brilliant, you are a genius, etc., the higher your self-esteem is. If we want to have more money, better relationships etc, we need to feel worthy of them. We need to see our own value first before everyone will appreciate us. We need to see ourselves professionally successful before we become winners. We need to feel worthy of love, before someone will truly love us. What you feel about yourself is a preview of what is going to happen in every aspect of your life.
Does it mean that when we have a great self-esteem we do everything perfectly?
Let’s take an example of a baseball player. A great baseball player hits over 0.300. What does that mean? It means that every ten times at bat he hits the ball safely 3 times! Three out of 10 makes him a great baseball player! What about the other seven times? Well, that is the key. It is the 3 times that he hits the ball safely that counts. How awesome is that! That is the key to creating great self-esteem. Paying attention to our successes, even the smallest ones and patting ourselves on the back is how we build our self-worth. We have to give ourselves more credit!
Why is self-esteem so important?
Self-esteem describes the level of calmness that we have. The calmer we are the more self-worth we have. In other words when we are truly calm our confidence goes through the roof!!! As a result we expect to achieve what we want and success follows.
So, stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself how amazing, special and brilliant you are. When you truly do that on a daily basis you will grow your self-esteem to new and newer levels and you will become successful in every aspect of your life.
If you already have an amazing life in every area then your self-esteem is pretty good.
Have an absolutely magical week, full of LOVE, GRATITUDE and FUN!!!
