Achieving Success Through Self-Esteem

Apr 25, 2008
Self-esteem is a hot topic when it comes to self-improvement. The definition of self-esteem is extremely simple to understand - it is an accumulation of the feelings that you have regarding yourself as a person. It is also the opinions that you hold about yourself as well. Throughout history, there have been a number of books, articles, and other types of literature on the subject of self-esteem. If you do a basic search on any major search engine on self-esteem, you will quickly find millions of results returned. This is basically because individuals are starting to know and understand that success can be achieved through self-esteem. Here, you will learn a little bit about this topic.

There are many different opinions and studies surrounding self-esteem. Many theories surround the overall concept of this form of confidence. However, the main fact is that we know for sure is that our self-esteem is a direct result of the opinions that we value are true when it comes to who we are, and what we can accomplish in life. It is also understand that self-esteem is general, but that it is possible to have fluctuations in esteem, depending on certain circumstances. This is why, in order to achieve success, there must be some level of self-esteem present.

I have established, based on my research and opinion regarding this concept, that if an individual lacks confidence in their abilities, their talents, and even in who they are as a person, they will experience much less success than the individual who finds that they are confident in these aspects of themselves. Negative opinions - regardless of what form - can cause many complications and actually hinder the overall growth of a person in many ways. Naturally, the areas that are most affected are the mental and emotional aspects of a person.

Many of us suffer from natural lack of confidence when we encounter mistakes, or fail at something that we have attempted to achieve. However, if we have confidence, we can view these experiences as simple learning experiences. Even in the darkest of situations, the person who has self-esteem will actually come out on top when it comes to success. This is because positive perspective always advances over a negative perspective. Many individuals have heard of the saying "perception is reality". This is especially true when it comes to the opinions that we hold about ourselves and our abilities. If we "perceive" the negative, we will experience the negative. If we perceive the positive, we will then experience positive. If we perceive positive, and we experience positive, we will then experience success as well.

In conclusion, if you want to achieve success, you must create success. In order to do this, the confidence level that you have should be evaluated and fine-tuned. If you have a high confidence level, you will have self-esteem. If you have self-esteem, you will also have success!
