Do you wonder if you are good enough to get what you truly want? Low self esteem will cause you to doubt yourself, your goals, your actions, and your desires. Finding out what stands in your way is the first step in building your self esteem .
Our culture is very focused on using a system of rewards and punishments, consequences that make us behave in certain ways. Because we are worried about being punished, we develop certain strategies and beliefs we think will take care of us, but in actuality these strategies and limiting beliefs can lead to a great deal of self doubt.
Who is the Boss of You?
Worthiness, or unworthiness, is something that is pronounced upon you by you. You are the only one that can deem yourself worthy or unworthy. ~Abraham Hicks
Whenever you decide that you want something new–like a new car–perhaps you’ve noticed that you start seeing that make and model everywhere. This happens because what you focus your attention on grows, and so seeing that car everywhere is normal–it’s just what happens.
Think about wanting something new, like more self esteem. Start by deeming your self worthy. As soon as you do, you will start to notice more opportunities to find yourself “good enough”, “smart enough” “worthy enough” to achieve your greatest goals and desires. But an opportunity is only good if you take it on.
Don’t let your long standing limiting beliefs and your perceived low self confidence control what you can have in your life.
“If you think taking care of yourself is selfish, change your mind. If you don’t, you’re simply ducking your responsibilities.” ~ Ann Richards
Start today! Identify the beliefs that are limiting you and focus your attention instead on actions you can take to achieving your goals and desires. Building your self confidence will take practice, but once you start you will begin creating the life you truly want.
With confidence in your ability to succeed,
