The Impact of Lacking Self-Esteem on Business Professionals

Studies show that at least 85% or more of the world’s people suffer from some degree of lacking self-esteem. Although one might think that such challenges are only characteristic of the poor, uneducated, or lower socio-economic members of society, people from all walks of life can suffer situational or more widespread challenges with their levels of self-esteem.

Many very successful business people lack self-esteem in some areas of their lives. Perhaps they feel socially challenged or they have difficulty establishing close or intimate relationships. Perhaps they experience low self-esteem with regard to their physical appearance or their health. Perhaps they are not having any fun in their lives, maybe devoting too much attention to their work. Many “successful” people are driven to succeed. They compensate for feeling deficient in other areas of their lives by working harder and finding a place they can excel through their work. This provides them with a new focus where they can win but it doesn’t fulfill their neglected needs in other areas like relationships, recreation, personal and spiritual development, health and appearance, and their ability to lead balanced, fun, and fulfilling lives.

Many of those lacking self-esteem in other areas find themselves driven to accomplish, driven to prove their worth. Since business is an area where they can shine, they neglect other areas to focus excessively on business. (more…)

You Reap What You Sow When Building a Business

Not a day goes by that thousands of people decide to take the “BIG LEAP” to attempt to sell something online with the dream of making untold amounts of money. As quickly as they dare to dream most will let go of the dream because they have not had a flood of buyers clicking their “Buy Now” button.

Discouraged, they shake their head, shut off the computer, sigh deeply, convinced they will never make money online nor fulfill their dream.

The bad news is, this is a more common scenario than not. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way.

As with virtually anything, there is a formula for success. Contrary to what many people may think, the most important part of the formula is one’s mindset. With the right mindset you are willing to do what it takes to move closer to your dream every day; you think in terms of possibility rather than limitation and you attract opportunity to yourself that can often amaze you and others.

You Deserve Your Dream: Building Self-Confidence to Meet Your Goals

Thursday, 21st April 2011

by Mary Morrissey

In our lives we all experience things that add purpose and meaning to our time here on earth. We also have a voice of judgment and doubt inside us that lessens our self-worth and ability to believe we have a right to good fortune. By finding a way to accept your true “Self” and staying in gratitude, life begins to give us the blessings our hearts and minds are longing for.

  1. Stay focused on the good to heighten your self-confidence. It is always your choice to perceive something as good or bad. Do not be dismayed when life sends challenges your way; just call God in to reveal the lesson. Then give yourself the same grace. Know that you still have your “original innocence.” Mistakes are not made out of evil; they are made out of ignorance. God created you. Therefore, you are inherently good. Starting here and now, stop being a victim. Know that you can be a co-creator of your own life and that you can benefit from every lesson over the course of your journey.
  2. It’s hard to move confidently into the life you have imagined if you’re lugging deadweight. When you persist in carrying the baggage of your childhood, your shame, or your belief that you are unlovable, you have no room for greater possibilities. Let go of encumbrances by identifying and releasing the things you’ve been clinging to.
  3. A daily practice of gratitude increases your sense of deserving. An “attitude of gratitude” clears the path for you to build your dream on a solid foundation of self-worth. Spend a day in gratitude for those you’ve been hard on. From that point, create a daily practice of doing just this. When you can appreciate the people you have once hurt or taken for granted, the ability to attract good is strengthened since your thankfulness has grown as well.

Deeply believe in your dream, or you will fall short. God already knows you are perfect; now is the time for you to believe in yourself. With God’s help, you can find that exquisite core you’ve kept hidden away and bring it out into the light.
