How do you go about building self esteem when years of believing you're "less than" or "not being good enough" has limited everything you've wanted to do in your life? Maybe you don't even aspire to do much of anything because you believe you're not up to facing new challenges. You're just going along with the flow and hoping for the best.
When a person's self-worth has been trodden upon since childhood, the adult can sometimes emerge with some deep seated wounds. Years of receiving negative messages from parents and other important figures in someone's life can leave devastating consequences as the child grows into adulthood.
This barrage of exterior criticism soon manifests into a grown up inner critic. It's that inside voice that is always reminding you of your shortcomings.
On the other hand, if you've been exposed to wonderful supportive feedback all your life, you're much more likely to feel empowered as you go about your day to day life, feeling worthwhile and able to thrive despite facing criticisms and challenges as they occur.
Perhaps you have low self esteem or you know someone you wish you could help. The following is a great article on overcoming low self esteem. There are some tips and techniques to try at home that may help a person move toward a healthier view of themselves.
Hiring a certified life coach can help with building self esteem. A coach fundamentally knows that poor self esteem stems from the past. But rather than re-visiting the past, a powerful coach takes you from where you are today and helps you move forward with a more accurate view of your talents and abilities. Your self worth grows in time and because of the new way you see yourself, you will garner the respect and attention of others. Your life can't help but improve.
When you show up in relationships, at home or at work, in this low level of energy you're feeling victimized or at the affects of events. You can't help it and you're resigned to the status quo. When you show up so small in your life... no one notices you. You get passed over for promotions, no one thinks to invite you to functions, you're nearly invisible.
It doesn't have to be that way.
You have worthwhile qualities and abilities. You have dreams and aspirations. There is more for you out there and you know it deep down inside. What's it going to take for you to start building self esteem?
Let a coach help you move forward into a new way of seeing yourself and your unlimited potential. A professional coach doesn't deal with the external symptoms. A coach works with you from the inside out. It's powerful stuff.
You have what it takes to do great things with your life. Let a coach help you tap in to your Truth and silence that inner critic.
