WHAT IS SELF ESTEEM?
Self-esteem is a term used in psychology to reflect a person's overall evaluation or appraisal of his or her own worth. It encompasses beliefs (for example, "I am competent", "I am worthy") and emotions such as triumph, despair, pride and shame.
Self Esteem is essential to nearly everything you do. It affects your success in relationships, your family life, leisure activities, work, career and life. It affects your behavior, thinking, and everything you attempt in life. It impacts on everything you want to do.
A firm belief in your capabilities and self-confidence is the single most important asset you have as a person. Even with all the resources and skills in the world, a person will fall short of attempting what could be their greatest achievements if they do not have the Self Confidence and Self Love to attempt what they want in life.
