Thinking Positive and Self-Esteem

3
The most fundamental manifestation of thinking positive in our daily lives is the concept of self-esteem or self-confidence.

A positive self-image is integral to leading a healthy life. Studies have shown that people who have confidence in themselves are better able to problem solve and make decisions, take risks and assert themselves, and work towards personal goals. They have healthier and stronger relationships with others. This allows them to lead and enjoy healthier, more productive and more fulfilling lives. People with a poor self-image may be less likely to take good care of or treat themselves well.

How you value yourself is based on the self-esteem you have, your self-esteem shows you how much you truly value yourself.

High Self-esteem vs Low Self-esteem

Healthy or high self-esteem leads to independence, happiness, positive thinking, flexibility, the ability to adapt easily to change, cooperation and a positive outlook on any situation.

Unhealthy or low self-esteem on the other hand leads only to irrational thoughts, unhappiness, fear of the new, a negative outlook on life . Most peopThinking Positive and Self-Esteemle have a bad day, or feel blue, from time to time. People who suffer from low self-esteem feel bad about themselves most, or all, of the time. These feelings prevent them from enjoying and making the most of their lives and having healthy relationships with others.

You can completely turn your life around with thinking positive if you come to understand how and why it works. All it takes is self-confidence…that Yes You Can!!

We all have dreams and ambitions and to fulfill those does take time. What gives you the drive and determination to succeed is high Self-Esteem. This can give that extra push and willpower to reach goals. Low Self-Esteem can, as a consequence, be a stumbling block to reaching your potential, as the difficulty you face is being able to carry out the actions neccessary to help you reach your goals.

"Self-Esteem" is about how a person views themselves and their abilities. Feeling positive about oneself will give us high Self-Esteem; having a low opinion about oneself will in effect give us "low Self-Esteem".

A good post on self esteem and positive thinking.
