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. When you truly accept yourself you are at peace with every part of you whether you regard it as good or bad. If... [Read the full story]

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. We dress to please. We change our behavior to please. We tell little lies because we’re afraid the truth won’t please. We sometimes damage our health to please by going on crash diets, overworking at the gym, staying up long hours when we’re tired, resorting to anorexia or bulimia. We eat stuff we hate, we do things we don’t like, and we hang out with people we don’t enjoy – all in an... [Read the full story]

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. It’s important to have a good handle on one’s self-worth and, thankfully, this can be accomplished in a multitude of simple ways. 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....

By Sharon Teitelbaum — I recently drove alone to a family event in PA, 5 hours back and forth (with an overnite in between). The time on the road gave me the opportunity to listen to some very wonderful books on tape that I got from the library. I’ve been hearing about Wayne Dyer’s The Power of Intention from clients for a while now, so it was great to finally get to hear it. This book is so densely packed with wisdom and transformational ideas, I know I could listen to it 30 more times over the next year and get something useful out of each time. That’s the way I seem...

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. Losing weight however must begin with you: the person who has decided you are carrying to many ponds. Once you have reached this position, you must have a plan on how you are going to lose the excess weight. Although diet and exercise will play apart in your plans, raising your self-esteem will assist you in managing your weight without too much... [Read the full story]

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. When we go for counseling, or when we start a serious self improvement program, we sometimes think we have to dredge up all the hurts and traumas of the past. Sometimes that is needed if you have some serious emotional issues but not always. Start where you are right now. If you are going on a trip, your starting place is the spot where you’re standing when... [Read the full story]

By Dr Richard L Travis — Self-esteem is greatly influenced by the significant people in children’s lives. Parents, teachers or peers can make a dramatic impact on a child’s value of his or her self, and can determine for a long time how that child values himself or herself. There are many opportunities...[Continue reading: Tips for Parents of a Child With Low Self-Esteem]
By Laurie O’Garro — It would be easy to keep on doing what you’ve always done. Life today can be quick, busy, hectic. Rarely do we take a moment to reflect on who we are, why we do what we do, say what we say, think what we think. But without stopping to figure out what makes us tick, we can lose ourselves....[Continue reading: 6 Principles Of Self-Awareness]
