People often talk about confidence and self-esteem together, but they're actually very different. There is a lot of chatter about people being emotionally unavailable to fulfill certain roles, participate in a discussion or provide support.
Satisfying sexual connection -- for both parties -- is dependent on a satisfying emotional connection.
The idea that all the richness of experience, of learning, loving and being could be reduced to patterns of neural firing was more than unintuitive to me, it was downright appalling.
What you're really doing when you think you're multitasking is shifting your attention from one thing to another at an astonishing pace. Experience shapes us and the messages we receive from a very young age can determine what will hold us back in the long run, stifling our confidence in particular situations. Enter Beyonce, who jumped on the bandwagon to help spread the message of Ban Bossy: girls can be powerful, ambitious, and in leadership roles. I would love to tell you that hundreds of girls I’ve talked to this year look up to Gloria Steinem or Oprah but they don’t, their moms do. Celebrities are relevant to the girls of today, there is an repeatability in their public lives, they feel like they can relate to them. Demi Lovato: At the age of 18 she courageously sought mental health assistance for bipolar disorder, self-injury, and eating disorders. Jennifer Lawrence: I don’t know her personally, but the way she has genuinely handled media harassment and bullying has been pretty remarkable.

So, today’s post is going to walk you through identifying the areas in your life that need highlighting, creating your own self love speak, and keeping up with the self love talk as a daily reminder of your awesomeness! Once you have identified the sensitive issues in your life that you want to work on, write them down in a notebook or on a piece of paper and sit or stand in front of a mirror. At this point, you should have a page or pages of compliments that you gave your positive mirror image self.

Hello there, I’m Alexis and welcome to Strange & Charmed, a Productivity Lifestyle Blog for women filled with tips, tricks and strategies to help you make the most of your quirky life. This doesn't mean that people who have good self-esteem won't be confident, or that people who are confident won't also have good self-esteem, but it's not always the case.
Being able to stand firm in a place of vulnerability and to flourish and grow with honesty and humility is a strength beyond measure. Over the summer, home owners have reevaluated their viewpoint of new construction and with it have started to invest in builders.Since 2008, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has noted a significant decline in the amount of Americans signing up with builders to construct their new home.
Along with her “stay strong” motto, she’s demonstrated that obstacles can be overcome, and that mental health shouldn’t be stigmatized. How have you helped girls (or yourself) find female role models who are both in and out of the celebrity spotlight? Women especially, find self acceptance to be a challenge in a world that is constantly sending them the message that they are too fat or not pretty enough or not smart enough or spend too much money on shoes!


Do you get embarrassed to do things or wear things or say things because you think others will put you down for it? Reread through these compliments and find two or three that really stand out and strike a chord with you. Stop by frequently throughout the week for updates on the best apps, gadgets, filofax tips, and advice. Some people have very good self-esteem and yet lack in confidence whilst others are incredibly confident but have very low self-esteem, in fact if someone is extremely confident then low self-esteem can be very well hidden.A good way to think about the difference is that self-esteem is an internal experience and confidence is an external experience. The rate of girls who suffer from mental health disorders is higher than it’s ever been in history. She is candid about her success in television and comedy as an Indian American woman and has used that to show the world that even in a male dominated industry like Hollywood, determination pays off. Which is what highlights her as a different type of role model.  “It’s not about being perfect. Through all the noise the world throws at us, we must learn to listen to our inner voice and drown out the external crap!
Well, the first step to giving yourself the love you deserve is to identify those things you are afraid to do and understand what the issue is behind it. If your issue is that you have a problem with your body weight, imagine yourself at your goal weight and with the body of your dreams. Then, take out a bright shade of lipstick or a dry erase marker and write those compliments on your mirror.
Whether you are trying to build your career, a blog or a business, Strange & Charmed has the tools to help you make your dreams a reality!
However, with regained builder confidence it looks like the industry is set for a boom that has construction companies across the nation anticipating an influx in business.But what is contributing to this increased confidence? In order to have more confident adult women, more attention and awareness needs to be placed on raising confident and empowered girls.
One excellent way to understand your positive qualities or learn to accept your not no positive qualities is through affirmations. Do you perhaps not like to wear short sleeves in public because you don’t like the way your arms look? Condense the wording if you need to, combine them to get them to fit, but pen those words directly in front of you on that mirror and leave them there. Self-esteem relates to the way that we feel about ourselves, it's a reflection of our inner sense of self value and entitlement, whereas confidence is a reflection of the way that we experience ourselves in our external world, in our relationships with other people and with situations and circumstances. According to the NAHB economist David Crowe, “A firming job market is unleashing pent-up demand for new homes.” In other words, the national job market is influencing the building industry positively for the first time in nearly 6 years. Telling yourself everyday that you are a beautiful and unique person, or that you have an opinion that matters in this world is a very powerful tool to increase your self love and self awareness.
Everyday when you go to that mirror to put on your makeup or evaluate yourself, you will be face to face with that positive mirror image of yourself in words.
This is good news for both home buyers and for the market.Of course, while these new numbers represent a positive change for the America economy other factors are still holding back the growth that both home buyers and home builders would like to see. Are you afraid to give your opinion on an issue at school or at work or with your friends, afraid that you will say something that sounds dumb?


Give that person every compliment you can think of, every positive thought you wish you could give yourself if only your flaws were wiped away. Factors such as a banking system that holds incredibly high credit standards for borrowers and the rising cost of materials are contributing to the overall amount of new homes being built and ultimately sold.With eyes set towards the future, those in the home builders market and within the HVAC industry hope to move forward with confidence as new numbers are released.
We might feel confident in our working relationships and yet not in our closer, more intimate encounters; confident within certain social settings and yet not at all in others.
Although the battle is still being fought, these positive percentages are pointing towards a reemergence of consumer demand for high quality homes, a demand which home builders are eager to meet. Spend some time thinking about what you are afraid or hesitant to say or do and identify the root of the issue. Confidence is also something we can learn, like a skill, and the more we do, the more our confidence will grow.
Once you have the root or roots (because most people have more than one issue) you can move on to step two.
So for example, if I lack the confidence to cook, I could do a cookery course and overcome my difficulties but if my self-esteem is low, even if I became a confident cook and incredibly good at it, I might never acknowledge my achievement or place any value on it.
Confidence can be learned and is very specific, we don't actually need to feel confident about everything and that's ok, but a lack of self-esteem can cause much greater difficulty in our lives.If we lack confidence in any area of our life but our self-esteem is good it will act as a kind of a buffer, or a solid foundation.
We will feel more resilient and more able to try something and regardless of the outcome still feel good about ourselves.
However if we have bags of confidence but very low self-esteem then regardless of a successful outcome we very rarely feel good about our achievements.People who have very low self-esteem are almost always ultra-critical of themselves, they have a raging inner critic and continually put themselves down, and even when they achieve something really quite significant, they never reward themselves.
They never allow themselves to digest or own or celebrate the good experiences that they generate and create in their lives. And not only do they not reward themselves but they don't receive compliments easily either.Self-value grows through true regard and respectful acknowledgement and recognition.
They are frequently incredibly supportive of others and yet don't offer themselves the same level of support and regard. If your inner critic is a default position that you slide into easily then this may take a few practice runs. The key here is that if you do slip into a default position, it's really important not to then criticize yourself for doing this,be supportive of your learning process, and because people with low self-esteem very rarely reward themselves when you notice your inner critic and when you press the pause button,please validate and acknowledge yourself. This is an achievement and validation is crucial to the growth of our self-esteem.So when you've pressed the pause button, notice what you would have said. For many people the things that they say to themselves would reduce a child to a place of absolute distress and despair within minutes and yet bizarrely we do this to ourselves all of the time!! What would you say to them?Listen to yourself and respond to yourself with care and support.
It's interesting that the things we say to someone else are very often a million miles away from what we might be say to ourselves.
