Self worth and self confidence are two skills that are crucial for success in life. If you don’t feel worthy, and/or you don’t know how to express your self-worth when communicating with others, life can be very painful.
Self worth is the part of us that judges if we are good or bad, worthy or unworthy, confident or not confident. Our self-esteem is very much connected to the way we THINK people see us.
When somebody has low self-esteem, we are very sensitive to the way other people may see and judge us.
These skills provide benefits to us in both our professional and personal lives. Once we have these skills they will help us in many aspects of our lives and have a positive effect on these aspects.
If we don’t feel worthy or confidence on the inside, we are not going to be able to project this in life to others.
You see, if we don’t think we are worthy we are going to project ‘unworthy’ into the world and the world will mirror ‘unworthy’ back to us.
This will effect us in our personal and professional lives. Also our children are very smart and they pick up your behaviours. So if you are projecting ‘unworthy’ into the world, what do you think your child will learn from you?
How Do We Develop Those Feelings In Our Day-To-Day Life?
We need to learn how we can build confidence
We need to learn how we can gain a strong self-esteem
We need to learn how we can gain a positive self-image
We need to learn how we can FEEL STRONG AND CONFIDENT on the INSIDE
Lets think about what we have done in our life to get low self esteem and confidence…..
That’s right… You told yourself you were not good enough. You may have said “I am not confident” “I hate myself”, “I cant do it”, “I am not as good as (someone else)” or similar.
This may have been triggered by an event or events in your life that gave you the ‘evidence’ of this but it is YOU that keeps telling you how bad you are, right now over and over again in your head.
So do you think that if you started saying “I am good enough”, “I am confident”, “I love myself”, “I can do it”, “I am as good as (someone else)”, that your thinking might change?
What we need to do is PRACTICE what we want to become.
Do you think Brad Pitt is a great actor because he was born that way, or do you think he went to school to learn how to be a great actor?
Do you think Nigella Lawson is a great cook because she was born that way, or do you think she practiced and practiced until she understood how foods go together and now she has a worldwide following?
Do you think Lewis Hamilton is a formula one race driver because he was born that way, or do you think he learned how to drive a car (like we all do) first and then practiced.
You see this is the SAME as everything else you want to achieve and have achieved in your life. You need to PRACTICE TO BECOME THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE.
Rehearse having confidence and strong else-esteem.
Another great way to give yourself a boost is to ask 10 of your friends to give you 3 words about how they see you. Ask them what your 3 best qualities are and see what they say.
The picture above is a picture of the words my friends gave me when I did this exercise for myself. Give it a go and see what happens.
