An Important Lesson in Self esteem

“The man who does not value himself, cannot value anything or anyone.”
― Ayn Rand

Do you value yourself? Can I ask you to think for a moment - what is your attitude to yourself? Many people make a big mistake and think that by being humble they are being good. Humble means not talking about yourself or taking credit for what you do. Now the problem with this is that if you do not build yourself up by reflecting on what you have done well then you can easily forget what you have achieved to get to where you are.

This important lesson in improving your self esteem is often forgotten:

Rather than focusing on where you are going and always stressing about the journey ahead, try focusing on how you have got to where you are now and what you have achieved on the way.

The journey to where you are has not been easy has it? You have managed to get here haven't you? There is a positive there if you want to look for it. Concentrate on what is still left to do and all the possible problems ahead and you will lose yourself in fear and doubt. That is a very negative and unhappy way to live because the future is never clear and it always looks difficult and problematic.

  1. You have an interesting blog. thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading your posts.

  2. Hi Karl,

    Value you and others will follow suit. Life is the mirror effect; how you're treated shows how you view yourself, and how you treat yourself. Believe that you deserve good things, and it will be so.


  3. Thanks for your comments Ryan. There is so much to say about our own attitude towards how much we think we deserve. Often we are beaten down by family, society and religion to think we are small and unimportant and worse, that we are undeserving.

  4. You are so cool! I do not believe I've read through anything like this before. So nice to find another person with unique thoughts on this subject. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is something that is required on the internet, someone with some originality!
