Today is the perfect day to boost your confidence by esteeming yourself.
Esteem: to regard highly or favorably; regard with respect or admiration
A few of my female friends find it easy to esteem others and difficult to admire themselves. Is it easier for you to mentally downgrade yourself with an avalanche of negative self talk than to build yourself up with favorable self talk?
Why is it important to esteem yourself?
It doesn’t matter how successful you are at masking your negative self talk, eventually, they will come through and people will see, hear, feel, and taste the real you. When you esteem yourself the energy you radiate will tell the world that you value yourself. More often than not, they will value you too.
The respect and admiration you have for your self impacts your confidence in powerful ways.
