Why It Is Important to Have A Great Self  -  esteem

Many people may not realize just how important it is to have great or high self-esteem. Your self-esteem can impact several areas of your life and can also affect other members of your family. When you have low self-esteem and confidence it can really have a negative impact on your self-value and can affect your mental health. When you have a positive view of which you are and what your self-worth is it can help you respect yourself which will give you the confidence you need to be successful in life.

High self-esteem and confidence can lead to several great things in your life and can really help you to have a positive outlook on life. For example when you believe and feel worthy of being happy and respected you will find that people naturally will treat you that way as they can tell that you are confident in yourself and believe in yourself.

Your self-esteem impacts a lot of areas of your life like the way you think, your emotions, your happiness, your desires, values, and your goals. When you have great self-esteem and confidence you will find that you are happier and are more focused on achieving your goals. You also will have the confidence to go for things that you may not have even attempted to achieve because you believe that you can achieve them and are qualified or able to do just that. Confidence also helps you to be happy with yourself and to not compare yourself to others which are a great boost for your mental and emotional health.

Many people find that when they are feeling confident and good about themselves that they feel like they are more in control of their lives and the direction in which they are going. It allows for them to focus on issues or problems that they may be presented with and helps them to approach those issues with a fresh perspective. It also gives individuals the confidence to solve those problems without second guessing and to be proud of the choices that they are making in their lives.

Individuals that have low self-esteem believe that they are not worthy of happiness and that they are incapable of succeeding in life. Low self-esteem can have many negative impacts on one’s life and can lead to mental health problems like depression. When you work on your self-esteem you will find that you are giving yourself an opportunity to be happy and to have fulfilling relationships and that you can achieve your goals with your newfound confidence.

How to improve your self-esteem?

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”âۥ Iyanla Vanzant
