By Oliver J R Cooper — There are going to be times in one’s life where their external reality mirrors back to them exactly what they want to experience and then there are going to be times when this doesn’t happen. And these experiences can end up defining not only how one feels, but also what they believe about themselves and about life in general. So as what is taking place in the external world is so powerful, it is only natural that one would always want to have experiences that were life affirming. This way, one is going to experience reality in a way that supports who they are;... [Read the full story]

By Kevin J. John — High self esteem is impossible without a high degree of self acceptance. The two go together hand in glove. One of the areas where many people find great difficulty is in accepting their negative feelings. Understanding the importance of doing this and the benefits it brings will help you to better accept them. Self acceptance is refusing to deny the existence and reality of any part of our bodies, our thoughts, our deeds, our emotions and desires, and our dreams.

Learning how to raise self-esteem is vital if you intend to survive in this dog eat dog world. With the recent economic downturn, conditions are less forgiving for people who choose to wallow in misery rather than take initiative to seize control of their lives.

One just has to have an open mind in order to succeed in lifting one’s spirits and being ready to take on any potential challenges that one might come across while dealing with the daily grind....

Therefore, we can all be happy by making a decision to be happy. Right? It sounds good on paper, doesn’t it? And the thing about it is that it’s absolutely true. So I made the decision to be happy and nothing happened. What do I do now? Ah, there’s the rub. It’s about more than just making the decision. It’s also about making some changes.

By Barry Austin - Society is awash with products and plans for people to lose weight. Managing our weight has become a multimillion pound industry, and “weight management” has become a major topic in some circles, second only to the weather.

By Irene Conlan - I’m a big fan of the Abraham books and recordings and I want to share with you one of the most powerful self improvement tools I know that I learned from their teachings – the tool of starting where you are right now.

By Irene Conlan — Many of us are concerned about what people will think – about how we look, how we dress, what we do, how we speak, how many degrees we have, how rich or poor we are and on and on.

By Dr Richard L Travis — Self-esteem is greatly influenced by the significant people in children’s lives.
