Discover the key to creating massive happiness.

High self-esteem is the magic building block of a fulfilled life.

Self-esteem creates huge drive to express ourselves with a feeling of worthiness, self-respect and confidence. If you don’t live every day in this powerful state, read on. Your self-esteem is created during childhood, where behaviors that cause high self-esteem are encouraged, discouraged or not taught at all. So if you have low self-esteem, you now know where you got it. Don’t blame them, most parents want the best for their kids, but incredibly, few have a good understanding of how to create high self-esteem within their child. A healthy self-esteem gives us confidence in our ability to handle social interactions, our health, our relationships, our finances and our goals. It gives us the key to a strong feeling that we deserve happiness and success. Without it, you will never feel enough, you will always fear the unknown, and you will go through life as if you have the brakes applied, never reaching your full potential. Self-esteem is often overlooked in schools and child rearing, even though it is regarded as a vital part to success in life. It is fair to say that it should be a priority for parents and schools to develop high self-esteem in their children, but it isn’t. This is madness.

Do you have low self-esteem?

Do you feel something blocking you from letting loose, having fun, and being yourself?

Are you uncomfortable with compliments?

Do you turn your head when a beautiful girl smiles at you?

Do you feel something is wrong when good things happen?

If you answered yes to any of these you, my friend, have low self-esteem. Accept it, come to terms with it. You have to understand where you are at, for things to begin to change. A lot of other people have been through what you are experiencing, many more are still suffering from it. Do not rationalize to yourself by saying “that’s just not me, I’ve always been shy”, “I’ve always struggled with dating” or, “I’ve just got a slow metabolism”. You know, deep down, that you could be better. The only thing stopping you is yourself. This low self-esteem expresses itself in many ways; from seeking safety and familiarity to a pathetic need for approval. From a desire to escape from yourself with food, drugs, television and sex, to a huge lack of motivation.

Signs that you suffer from low self-esteem:

  • Social withdrawal

  • Defensiveness

  • Social anxiety

  • Low confidence

  • Depression

  • Blowing the negative out of proportion
