Many people in the USA suffer from self esteem issues and this is not a healthy psychological sign at all. It is important for you to identify how you feel about yourself so that you do not face problems in the future at all. If the issue of self esteem is left untreated, you have to get ready for life- long problems in the future- you may become a victim of an abusive relationship or become self conscious of yourself. You also may be afraid to fail and fear setting goals for yourself!
Marty Hale is one of the most widely esteemed and credible motivational coaches and mentors in the USA today. He says that he is often approached by people and business houses to train and mentor individuals that have self esteem issues. He says that while training people and employees, he tells his group to first evaluate yourself. He says that if your inner voice gives you negative feelings about yourself, you are most likely to suffer from low self-esteem and vice versa.
Now, if you still have doubts about your self-esteem, he says to write down the thoughts about yourself for a few days and read them. This will give you the true picture of how exactly you feel about yourself. Once you have evaluated the source of this negative self esteem, it is important for you to track its source. He says that nobody has low self esteem from birth. They are either conditioned in such a manner or have been the recipient of negative feedback consistently. This has caused them to develop a negative pattern of thinking they are not good enough. This in turn leads to low self esteem.
It is very important for you to take care of yourself well. You must sleep and rest well. Diet and food is also important for you to think positive thoughts about yourself. In this manner you will see positive changes in your attitude with success!
Once you have determined you suffer from low self esteem, it is important for you to set it right with the aid of an achievable goal.
