Do people possessing high self-esteem achieve greater success in life?
You may have heard from many people that they want to increase their self esteem. They believe that once their confidence and self esteem is high, they’ll be able to achieve more and greater successes.
While that’s a valid fact that high self esteem assists you in achieve all you want in your life, the mistake most of the people make is how they think about self-esteem. It’s not a thing to be increased or decreased! Instead, self esteem is the process of esteeming yourself. In other words, the process of boosting your self esteem starts with thinking of how valuable you are and treating yourself the same.
Self Confidence is closely related to self esteem. It is an external behavior that stems from a high self esteem.
Self confidence means believing in yourself that you can be effective in the world, feeling able to handle the challenges of the world to achieve goals.
Believe in Yourself: The first step is to believe in yourself. It’s your responsibility to take charge for your own beliefs and self-concept, belief in your talent, abilities, potential and your worth.
