We hear the word self-esteem a lot and also the word self-confidence.....but do you know that they actually mean and what the difference is between the two?
Self-esteem is how we generally feel about ourselves. How much we like or love ourselves. It is also the overall image that we have about ourselves. Positive or negative it doesn´t matter.
Our self-esteem is shaped my our parents, siblings, teachers, friends, our experiences and also our environment that we grew up in and also our community.
Self-esteem is to truly feel comfortable in you own skin and if everyone doesn´t like you, it is OK with you.
A couple of tips!
Get to know yourself. Understand what you like and what you don´t like and why.
Set goals and achieve what you want.
Don´t be afraid to ask for help.
Stand up for your beliefs and your values.
Take responsibility for your own actions.
Take good care of yourself.
How would your life improve if your self-esteem improved?
"When you have self-confidence, you have a lot of fun.
And when you have fun you can do amazing things."
- Joe Namath
Self-confidence is how we show up in the world. How we feel about our abilities and also how capable we see ourselves of doing certain things.
It is also how we feel that we can handle different situations.
A great tip!
One of the best ways to gain confidence is to do something you are afraid to do.
Get a record of successful experience behind you. Start stacking one success on top of the other.
It is not who you are that will hold you back. It is who you think you are not.
If you don´t see how great you are, how can you expect anyone else to see it?
