Know Yourself – Assess Your Strengths and Capabilities

Among the most crucial things you need to do to accomplish any sort of success is to be really truthful about yourself. You have to comprehend and get to know who you truly are.

You must be willing to honestly comprehend and assess your strengths and your capabilities. Realizing that is a really significant step of believing in yourself.

It is a general human tendency to want to be like others. When we see accomplished people performing, we often say “I wish I was like him or her.” Unfortunately, that does nothing towards fostering a healthy belief in ourselves. 

The most crucial thing we need to know and be aware of is what we are truly capable of.


Take a minute and think about what your fortes are. What your skills are and what you are able to do. You don’t need to be an expert, even some amount of knowledge in a certain area will do.

You have to know what you can do and what you are capable of. If you want to become a master at something, it is really important to be sure of yourself and not live under illusions.

Take a blank piece of paper and write these things down in the order you think you are best at down to the things you are least good at.

The first three things should be things you do really well followed by others that you are able to do fairly well. Follow this by those things that you may barely do but you may learn and improve upon. This little piece of paper that reveals what and who you are should be kept somewhere handy that you can look at often.

When you are trying to make a self-assessment, this realization will be exceedingly valuable to you.

Remember – don’t take what others say to you or about you at face value. They may be prejudiced in some way. You have to value yourself. When you know your limitations and your potentials, you know you are able to stand much better on your own.

The crux of all this is – do not take other people’s negative critiques blindly or as being the truth. They do not know you, neither do they comprehend or understand what you feel or know what you are capable of.

You are the only one who truly knows their own self-worth and capabilities and within the realms of this, you are the only one able to arrive at the decisions you ultimately make within your life.

Bottom line is this:

If you would like things, experiences, events in your life to change, if you would like your results to be different than they are now, first YOU must change.  If you are dissatisfied with your life, if you are feeling any kind of pain…it’s time for change.

Remember your power as a creator of your own life and don’t be afraid to repeat this affirmation to yourself:

“I can. Therefore I will!”

If you don’t like the results you see, you need to look at what it is that you are doing, or better yet, you need to look at who and what you are being, but never look to your past, you’re not going that way. Your past will never define who you are now. Who you are now is being created day-by-day.

The truth is, if you continue doing what you’ve always done, you will continue to get what you’ve always got.”  Or, to expand this statement: “If you continue to be who you have always been, you will continue to have what you have always had.

Build a Positive Mindset Team

An important element to anyone’s “tool-chest for success” is building a positive mindset team.

Are you familiar with this saying?

“You are the sum of the five people closest to you?”

Before you “poo-poo” this idea, stop and reflect a bit. It is a very powerful saying that is oh so true. Take a good, close look at who you are closest to in your life and without a doubt, you discover that you have very similar habits and lifestyle preferences, or you are at least on you’re way to matching them.

It’s time to give some serious thought to who you surround yourself with don’t you think?

If you are trying to improve your overall lifestyle to a healthier you, for example, and you surround yourself with people who are not focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but consistently make poor food choices concerning diet and never workout in any way, you’ve made your journey twice as hard as it needs to be!

It’s much harder to maintain your healthy position when there is a tempting pizza right in front of you.

Most people, if put in this position cave, and that’s why it’s essential that they distance themselves from anyone who is not on board with similar health goals, at least at the beginning of your journey, when you are more vulnerable to set-backs.

If the people you surround yourself with are not mirroring what you want to have in your own personal life, you are just making things harder for yourself.

This is why, when focused on changing your mindset from a negative to a more positive one, the very first thing that needs tending is to take a close, honest assessment of those who are around you.

Ask yourself:

Are the people you are surrounding yourself with the ones who also maintain a positive mindset?

Are these people consonantly looking for ways to improve themselves – ways to grow as an individuals?

Are they involved with regular learning, regular action taking to improve their lives, and do they maintain a high degree of positivity on a day to day basis?

Now, this does not mean that you should ditch your closest friends that may not be 100% positive. However, if you find that your five closest people aren’t the positive action-taker and go-getter’s that you want to become yourself, then you simply may want to consider how much time you spend around them and start looking to connect with other people that are more oriented in this manner.

Remember, everyone, including you will go through some tough times when you just want to toss in the towel. Having positive people in yourlife, especially those who have been through similar situations, can help provide valuable tips and advice to make it easier for you.

Start now to build a support team – these people can come from anywhere, even those you meet and converse with online count. Surround yourself with these people and then you will be seeing a major difference in how your feel and how you approach your own life.

Healthy Bodies Build Healthy Self-Confidence…

The confidence you exude to others is a major player in the results you experience in life.

Unfortunately, it is not something that can be learned and there are no set of rules to follow because healthy self-confidence is actually a state of mind – a result of the feelings of acceptance and self-love of mind and body as well as a firm belief in skills, ability and past experience.

Although confidence is closely related to self-esteem, they are not the same thing.

What we do, say and think (feeling worthy or not) is reflected in our self-esteem but how we feel about our ability to successfully perform any tasks, roles or functions assigned to us is reflected (or not) in our confidence.

Often times, those with low confidence also suffer from low self-esteem but those with good self-esteem can also suffer low confidence.

How we feel about ourselves, the way we look (someone who is proud of their appearance presents themselves differently – they come across as secure about who they are and what they say) and think (feeling worthy or not) is reflected in our self-esteem but how we feel about our ability to successfully perform any tasks, roles or functions assigned to us is reflected (or not) in our confidence.

Successful entrepreneurs and business people know that a healthy body breeds healthy self-confidence and healthy self-esteem and because of that, they wholeheartedly embrace healthy living.

Without strong self-confidence driving them, they cannot approach or secure investors, gain funding or sell their product successfully to customers. In other words, they must be at the top of their game if running a successful business and influencing others is important to them.

Entrepreneurs are full aware that success is built upon healthy confidence and self-esteem levels. They understand the principle that it’s not about working harder but working smarter with all their faculties working for them not against them.

Successful entrepreneurs have their priority list in order and they treat their health as a lifestyle not an occasional occurrence. They are fully aware that a few weeks without challenging exercise or eating a consistently poor diet can and will begin to have severe negative implications on their health and body. Not something any of them can busy entrepreneur can afford to take lightly.

The reality is, they cannot function at peak performance and be in great physical shape if their eating and exercise habits are not healthy and consistent and neither can you.

Working on your physical appearance with challenging exercise (liking the image you see reflected in the mirror goes a long way towards boosting your self-confidence) and proper eating habits is the quickest and surest way to build your self-confidence levels and boost your self-esteem. They are key ingredients to feeling energetic and confident. When the body receives what it needs in the way of vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins, and it gets the right amount of challenging exercise, it shows in your appearance making you feel better about yourself automatically.

Find a role model – or a few of them and watch and learn from those that are successfully fulfilling their goals and dreams. Bask in their light and allow their healthy self-confidence, eating and exercise habits to rub off on you.

Most importantly, be patient with yourself. Don’t expect instant results but give your self-confidence and self-esteem a chance to grow and get strong. Learn to trust in and take baby steps, each one making you that much stronger.

Two Key Elements:

Watch your diet. What you eat can and does affect your moods which in turn affects your self-confidence. For example, if you allow your blood sugar to drop too low or you might find yourself in a grouchy mood – not a healthy state to be in if you want to attract customers or “seal a deal.”

Focus on exercise because it not only promotes a lean healthy attractive body (one you will be proud of), it boosts your hormonal levels by stimulating the production of endorphins – your feel good brain chemicals. So, not only does your body gain benefit with exercise but your mind and mood does too.

As a bonus, healthy self-confidence also breeds assertiveness – an important trait in standing up for yourself and your beliefs (being your own person) and not giving way to someone else’s ideas.

Break the cycle of no exercise, poor eating habits, low self-confidence and poor self-esteem and replace it with a positive cycle of challenging exercise, healthy eating habits, healthy self-confidence, high self-esteem and healthy assertiveness.

Truth is, our mind and body are intimately linked – our bodies are affected by what’s in our minds and our bodies (how they look and how they feel) can also change how we feel emotionally.

Bottom line is this: when you are confident about your body the chances are much greater that you will feel this confidence in other areas of your life such as business and relationships.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem. That’s what you want to attract in your life.

Learning is a “Process” not an End…

The ability to stay hungry and keep learning is as necessary and important a trait for anyone following the entrepreneurship path as perseverance and patience are.

Successful entrepreneurs thrive on the “experience” of learning.

In fact, possibly the greatest entrepreneur of all, Richard Branson himself states on Twitter that “Entrepreneurs must keep learning.” You think he knows something?

Learning is not just about what’s between the pages of a book cover. Although formal education plays into the process of success, it’s only part of the equation. What you learn between the covers of a book are only the beginning of your journey.


It’s not the “formal education” that makes you smart or successful but the ongoing seduction/learning that you embrace after leaving school.


Entrepreneurial Tips:

Successful entrepreneurs are always looking for new ideas to try and open themselves to expert advice by seeking out mentors in their respective fields. They know that continual learning is mandatory for continual success and seek out experts that can bring fresh new insights to whatever their current challenge is.

Successful entrepreneurs are open-minded, they do not get stuck in the successes or defeats of “yesterday.” They do not live in the past, but are ready and willing to explore new terrain and open themselves to new possibilities.

Successful entrepreneurs act boldly in any situation, and recover quickly from any supposed “set-back” learning what they need to/can and moving onto new territory.


Learning is a fun, amazing, mind-expanding, question-opening tool that transforms you into a better, more well-informed successful person/business person.

Learning is mandatory. It’s what brings excitement, fun, freshness and success to everything you do. Learning is evolution in process, you’re either in the process of evolving or you’re dying.


In this rapidly changing world – appropriately termed “information age,” information is readily available and moves at a rapid pace through the web. It is the perfect avenue to expand expertise and knowledge in any field or passion. Websites, blogs, webinars, seminars and ebooks all offer opportunities to open yourself to learning and expanding your knowledge base.

Failure to an entrepreneur is “par for the course” and part of the learning and growing process. Truth is, if you’re not improving, someone else is. 

Entrepreneurs don’t view learning as an “option” but as an “opportunity.” They don’t fall back on excuses but look for ways through any obstacle that may surface. And, they value those that have gone before and are not afraid to tap into their knowledge to access the “fast path” and avoid potential roadblocks or mistakes.

The reality is, if you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse. Surround yourself with “those in the know” …literally. The more you surround yourself with experienced or highly skilled people the more knowledge you open yourself to and the quicker your own growth.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem.

Your Thoughts Dictate Your Actions…

The human mind is an amazing tool. It generates both positive and negative thoughts and there is always a conflict between them. What wins out is shown through our actions and behavior towards things. If our mind is full of positive ideas on dealing with everyday life, our way of thinking also becomes positive, if it is full of negative thinking then that is what plays out.

Positive Thoughts –

We can define the term “positive” as confident, optimistic and focused on good things as opposed to bad things. Therefore, positive thoughts are those that bring confidence, optimism and focus to us as an individual. Positive thought breeds a positive outlook in life.

Optimistic, positive thinking includes thoughts such as: “I am smart. I am open to new ideas and knowledge,” “I stand out in a crowd with my magnetic smile” and of course “I can, therefore I will.”

Simple “I can’s and I am’s” are the perfect way to start cultivating a mind filled with positive thoughts.

Negative Thoughts –

Negative is the opposite of positive. You could define it as “being pessimistic or tending to have an undesirable outlook.” These types of “mind thoughts” are nonconstructive ideas that discourage us from being someone or doing something. They pull us down so we are unlikely to believe in ourselves or in what we do and achieve.

When we formulate limiting beliefs about what is possible for us to accomplish, our response is to limit and bind any actions we take. As a result, the results we experience are limited.

Negative thoughts are evil and many times observable on the faces of people entertaining them. No, not, don’t, can’t, won’t and what ifs are all types of negative thinking that destroy rather than create. These types of limited thoughts hold you back and build a wall between you and your goals. They keep you from doing something without even trying.

Truth is, our minds our boundless when it comes to generating thoughts. When an issue occurs, it immediately goes to work making a list of all possible solutions, regardless of whether they are acceptable or unacceptable or even possible.

It’s at this point of disturbance that the clash begins. The positive thought “yes, I can” and the negative thought “no, I can’t” compete. The accepted and prized thought is what then moves into action. If our belief is that we are likely to fail, then the subconscious gets to work producing actions that support this belief. On the flip side, when we trust we’re going to succeed then then our subconscious goes to work setting the table for success.

It is our actions that speak loud and clear and reveal what kind of thoughts have been dominating our minds. These are the thoughts we carry around and entertain on a daily basis. If there is something that needs working out, it is not our actions that need tending to first…but our thoughts which lead to those actions.

We must get life working for us. Since all our behavior results from the thoughts that precede it, our focus should not be on the “behavior” exhibited but the thing that is causing this behavior…our thoughts.

Both positive and negative thinking have power over us. It’s entirely up to us which one we choose to empower us since both shape our future and create out destiny…just bringing different results.

Always keep in mind the fact that your thoughts are more important than the actions you take. If you keep yourself in a constant positive frame of mind, you will be able to keep your motivation to achieve optimal health strong and resilient. With strong motivation behind you, achieving your goals becomes much easier.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem.

What Your Priority List Reveals About Your Self-Worth…


What your priority list reveals about your self-worth and how your self-worth dictates priority list… they are intimately linked.

Getting to the root of why you are not presently taking healthy consistent actions to permanently solve your body and health problems takes some seriously honest self-reflection. 

In order to make health and fitness a primary objective, the first thing you must do is examine how you “value” yourself, your self-esteem. What is your self-worth and what’s on top of your priority list?

That’s all that really matters and the standard from which your actions spring from. It effects every area of your life.

The reality is, you are the only person you can control and the only person that can benefit from your passion to live a much higher quality of life is YOU. YOU are the one empowered to do so for yourself, no one else can touch your controls.

You must consciously, with intent, make up your mind and decide without waver that YOU really do deserve to look and feel your best and then take the proper action steps towards getting there. You must stop treating your health and fitness as an option that is out of your control and embrace the fact that greater mentality and emotional health with higher levels of energy are your birthright. You must make them the priority and place them at the top of your “value list” rather than simply taking them for granted.

You must “perceive it” from the point of view that settling for anything less than the best for yourself is nothing less than disrespectful and undeserving of yourself. You are worth way more than that.

That’s the attitude you need to nurture and own.

When you shift how you view yourself (your perspective), you automatically place your health and fitness at the top of your “value scale.” They become your priorities rather than disposable tasks. You begin making healthier decisions automatically because you are coming from healthier perspectives about yourself.

When you make the firm decision to leave your “unhealthy, feel bad body” and go after a “feel good, strong, energetic, fit body” you make a declaration about who you are and what you are prepared to accept for your life.



This means you will no longer settle for nor will you continue to spend your days enjoying anything less than excellent health and high levels of energy.

Don’t fall into the trap that snares others who end up suffering poor health physically and emotionally. Even if health has never been a priority in your life before now, you can begin right this moment, no matter what your age to making good healthy decisions concerning your life and daily habits.

Never settle for less…remember your value. Putting your health and fitness first is about looking after YOU.

You know in your heart that “nothing good in life will simply drop into your lap” – you must decide what you want from life, and then take action to GET IT.

No one is empowered to flip this “switch” inside of you, but you. This is your “journey to health and fitness” – you are in control and it begins with your values.

To effect real change in your life, you must supply the reasons, the motivations for doing so. If you don’t value yourself enough to believe you deserve something, you will never be motivated to earnestly reach for it.

Health is the greatest wealth you can achieve and the grand-prize for achieving it is “living.” It is the greatest single investment you can ever make.

Your personal health is the most valuable possession you have and without it no other possession has meaning. If you truly value yourself and your health then “go for it”…take the necessary action steps required to bring it into manifestation. Every single day is under your control and open to new possibilities.

Maintaining a healthy, fit, lifestyle is a commitment to regular exercise and healthy eating on an ongoing basis. Don’t wait for a health crisis/diagnosis to shock you into placing “value” where it needs to be. Do everything you can to stay healthier longer now.

Love and value yourself, know your self-worth and honor it. Everything else including your health, fitness and happiness will follow suit.

Lifestyle Choices That Increase Productivity


Our health is built on four pillars: physical activity (exercise), nutrition, mindset and stress management.

These components are closely interlinked and completely dependent on one another. They are the foundations of good health and wellness.

Entrepreneurs who consciously work at being fit and healthy enjoy many benefits beyond the physical. They enjoy unshakeable confidence. And unshakeable confidence is mandatory when influencing others and running a successful business.

When you feel healthy, you exude a certain “aura”…it shows. A high level of confidence comes across and you come across as being secure in yourself. You’ll be more certain about what you are saying when trying to influence others.

The level of confidence you achieve after putting in time and effort with healthy eating and exercise is like no other. It is an investment in yourself that you will never regret.

In addition to regular exercise and healthy eating, there are numerous lifestyle choices that increase your productivity and your attitude for better business along with boosting your resistance to stress.


Strategies you can easily put into play on a daily basis that increase productivity…


Wrap your brain around the conviction that your health is your greatest asset and you cannot compromise it. Make exercise a priority. A healthy body helps to cultivate a healthy mind. A healthy mind is a productive mind.

Explore and Strategise

Decide where you are going to work out as well as the frequency, time of day and if you are going to have a workout partner.


Set up your calendar and include your exercise schedule. If it’s on your calendar, you’re much more likely to stick to it and get it done. Treat these times as “non-negotiable.”


Keep track of your progress – how you feel, how you eat/sleep, how much weight you gain and how much energy you have. Evaluate how things are progressing after 2-3 weeks. If the program you adopted does not seem to be working, it’s time to make changes and improve it. If necessary, pay a trainer to get you on track and stick to your fitness plan. After 2-3 months of consistent hard work, you’ll enjoy a priceless exercise habit.

Stay Active

Humans were not created to sit motionless for hours in front of a TV or computer. A sedentary lifestyle only opens the door to bigger health problems. Sitting for a long period of time is linked to obesity, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and excess body fat.

Take breaks every hour for at least 5 minutes. Get a drink of water, stretch out breathe deeply and do some jumping jack, squats or push-ups to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. This not only energizes you, but it reboots your metabolic motor.

There are many built-in ways to be physical during every day. We just don’t take advantage of them. When you are out, rather than choosing the closest parking spot…choose the one farthest away. Include as much incidental exercise whenever possible. When you have a choice of taking the stairs or elevator…choose the stairs.

Be Aware of Stress Levels

Stress opens the door to a myriad of health issues and problems including fatigue, depression and anxiety. Failing to manage this all-too-prevalent component of an entrepreneur’s life can have devastating consequences. Believe it or not, 70 percent of hospital admissions can be traced back to unmanaged stress. This is not a healthy successful business strategy! Reduce stress by making time for fun and relaxation. You’ll be in a better place to handle life’s stressors.

Eat Healthy

Well-nourished bodies are better prepared to cope with stress so be mindful of what you eat. Start your day out with a healthy breakfast and keep your energy levels up and your mind clear with balanced, nutritious meals throughout the day.

Get Enough Sleep

Deep, restful sleep is what fuels your mind as well as your body. Feeling tired increases stress and fogs your mind causing you to think irrationally.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Fresh air is good for us. Force yourself outside to get fresh air, vitamin D and exercise. Even a short brisk walk is enough to recharge your energy and clear your mind.

We should think of our body as a power unit, a macro economy that consists of multiple small enterprises. If you optimize the input to your body’s cells, you will gain maximum output and use the energy you have to the best advantage and in our case, building a business and lifestyle that is enjoyable, viable and sustainable for the long haul.

Empower Your Mind and Body Using Exercise



healthy mind healthy body

If you’re trying to be the best at what you do, no matter what that might be, you must learn to connect on a deeper level with your “inner self” because that’s where the “power controls” are located.

Different forms of meditation such as sitting and walking meditation can help you do just that.

However, there is another empowering way to getting acquainted with your “inner power center,” your intuitive voice. It is every bit as powerful as meditation is and readily available to everyone alike – that key is exercise.

In order to “hear” our inner voice of intuition we must quiet the demanding louder voice that constantly controls our attention and emotional reactions and exercise empowers us to do just that.


Mind Powerchfitness-health

Exercise strengthens our ability to control the mind. When we exercise, breathe deeply and get our hearts pumping and pounding, we actually force out lower annoying thoughts and emotions that are trying to control us. This allows the quieter “inner voice” of intuition to be heard.

Approximately forty-five minutes of challenging exercise, pulsing new energy throughout our bodies, expands the mind and invites in a much bigger, expanded and more amazing vision of our life purpose.

Exercise empowers us to rise above our “lazy” inclinations and take hold of our selfish demanding egos. It forces the rapid circulation of oxygen and blood through our brain causing our perceptions to shift and expand. No longer do mental limits and borders present barriers as our new perceptions invite “new expanded possibilities” into our conscious space.

Exercise boosts our energy reserves and is key to releasing powerful endorphin’s. These feel-good chemicals flood our brains with “good feelings.” When our brains are filled to the brim with “happy thoughts” and open to expanded possibilities, any negative, lack filled or poverty type of conscious thinking gets blocked from taking hold.

You can’t put negative thoughts into a space that is already occupied and filled by positive thoughts.

The euphoric feeling that exercise provides us makes us feel unstoppable no matter what we do.

It’s impossible to mention every form of exercise because there is such a hug variety. Each person needs to reflect upon their personal needs and goals and listen to what their bodies are telling them and gravitate towards it.

Whatever it is, it must include fun in the definition. In other words, choose something you enjoy doing long-term so that you stick with it. If you find your exercise routine too difficult or totally non-enjoyable, it will become a thing of the past very fast.

No matter what your goals are or what visions you may hold in your heart – be they job related, financial, health, or personal relationships, exercise is key to busting through any current limitations that may be hindering your progress.

Don’t be a victim to your lower mind thoughts, super health is at your finger-tips.

best-youExercise is the key to releasing powerful endorphins and raising your vibration higher, flooding your mind with empowering, motivating, happy, successful thoughts.

The Law of Attraction is a powerful law that has captured the attention of millions and catapulted the word “manifesting” to new dimensions.

When you embrace exercise as a mandatory daily activity, it allows you to live at a higher vibration. Living at a higher vibration allows manifesting to almost become magical and effortless because the negative “thought blockages” have been cleared.

If “manifesting” health, wealth, and lasting loving relationships is important to you, look no further than your next workout.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem.

Surround Yourself With Positive People and Set Yourself Up for Success

chfitness0“If you want to know who you are, take a look at your friends.” Familiar with that saying? Or how about “you are the sum of the five people closest to you?”

Both are powerful sayings that are very true. If you take a look at who is closest to you in your life, you will come to find that you have very similar habits and lifestyle preferences as they do, if not immediately then you’re likely on your way to matching their energy and choices in the near future.

And, that’s why it’s ultimately important that you give serious thought to who you surround yourself with and exchange energy with.

If those that you currently fill your life and time with are not mirroring what you want to manifest in your own personal life then you are just making things harder for yourself. Sort of like trying to “swim up-stream” against the tide.

Successful entrepreneurs know this. They are positive people who surround themselves with people who are also positive by nature and positive about their lives and careers, those who bolster and boost that good feeling rather than destroy it.

Truth is, when focused on shifting your mindset from one focused on the negative to one focused on the positive the very first thing you need to address is your own environment and those you are sharing your time and energy with.

Are they taking regular consistent actions that improve their lives? Are they actively learning and do they maintain a high degree of positivity on a day to day basis? If the answer to these questions is no, you’ll be in for a much harder journey ahead.

Understand, this isn’t about ditching friends that are not 100 percent positive, it’s about searching out those that are extreme, that drag you down and doing something about it.

Always focus on the good that people bring into your life…focus on how you feel when you are with them. If the energy shifts to “negative” then you may want to consider how much future time you spend around them. You may want to start looking for new connections, those who’s positive attitude and energy help keep you lifted, confident and feeling good about yourself.

There are infinite amount of groups or classes available locally to most people where they can meet others who share interests, a similar frame of mind and are striving towards similar goals.

The reality is, anytime you are sharing “space” with someone else you are also exchanging energy. So, position yourself for better success by surrounding yourself with those who also desire that. At the same time, you’ll also be building a strong support team around you for when “harder times” hit and you need a bit of a lift.

These people can come from anywhere…they might be your personal trainer, someone you are sharing a class with, a family member or close friend or even an online forum, as long as they represent and possess precisely what it is that you are looking for in your own self they will nurture those qualities in you.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem. That’s what you want to attract in your life.

Healthy Self-Esteem is Mandatory for Success in Life

you are wonderful!“People do not get what they want in life, they get what they believe they deserve.”

And, this is why your self-esteem is so important. In truth, you are the one that holds the key to making all your dreams come true.

Be it low or high, self-esteem is what influences your choices and decisions and in the end, your behavior.

Healthy self-esteem is without a doubt an integral key to long-term lasting success at anything and that includes your health which is paramount to success at all other things. It directly effects your confidence and self-image levels.


Damaging Low Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem causes you to place little or no value on yourself. It negatively effects your confidence levels.  Without confidence in what you are able to achieve, what chance do you have for happiness or success?

Those experiencing low self-esteem have a poor image of themselves and find it harder to socialize. Even setting goals is negatively affected because low self-esteem will not allow you to believe that you deserve to reach them. If you cannot believe that you deserve to reach your goals then you will never be motivated to manifest them.

Additionally, when it comes to overcoming adversity, those with low self-esteem are not resilient. They regard themselves as unworthy to achieve therefore allowing important issues to slide undone.

All low self-esteem does is keep you stuck, frustrated and unhappy. It drags you down and holds you down. It’s like “driving through life with you hand brake on.”


Benefits of High Self-Esteem

On the other hand, people that enjoy high self-esteem are motivated to take personal care of themselves while exploring their full potential. They like and respect themselves and strive towards fulfilling their personal aspirations and goals.

In reality, nothing good in life ever simply drops into your lap – you must decide for yourself what it is you want from life and then “go get it!”

Once you know that you are empowered to “flip the switch” and better yourself, you’ll refuse to settle for less than you should.

In order to shift from low self-esteem to high self-esteem you must know without a doubt that you really do deserve the best and decide that you will not settle for anything less than this. You must know where your power lies…within, not without. You must begin making decisions that enhance the value of your life rather than tearing it down.

You must monitor your mind to only believe positive things about yourself and stop comparing yourself to others. No two lives are identical and doing this only brings you down. Improve and adjust your self-image and rest on your own laurels. Appreciate you…for all that you are.

Increase your self-esteem and watch as other areas of your life such as “positive thinking” get a boost too.

Bottom line is this: Your potential to achieve in life is directly related to how you feel about yourself – your self-esteem.

Until you value yourself, you will never value and respect others. Place high value on yourself and your unique contribution to the world and watch as the world values you back.
