The Free Bonus below is a bonus extra free subscription that I have negotiated only for you as a selfesteemplus visitor. The course helped me and help also others as I am conducting a leadership course thru academic further learning programs. As a mentor it is easy to forget yourself when dealing with those who have multiple problems, the course has woken me up and given me a lift to carry on. Comparing, gossiping about others, putting others first, even excessive Facebooking are all signs of low-self esteem.

I was psychologically abused as a young child and in turn, overtime have become abusive myself. I never realized that I had a very low self esteem, until I read the characteristic’s and what Darius has added and can identify with all the behaviors. Though this may be early times for me on the road to rehabilitation, I have the support of my forever supportive and loving wife.

People often talk about confidence and self-esteem together, but they're actually very different. A good way to think about the difference is that self-esteem is an internal experience and confidence is an external experience. So confidence is the way that we feel about interacting and engaging with something external, whether it's talking and relating to others or doing something in our world; whereas self-esteem is a reflection of our own inner sense of self value, regardless of the external circumstances around us. 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. 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. If you recognize that you have low self-esteem here's a really useful exercise that you might find helpful.


If your goal is building high self esteem, one of the most easy, efficient and effective techniques to use is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping. This simple technique connects your conscious to your unconscious, your mind to your body for a whole body, whole mind transformation. If you’re new to tapping and want a tapping overview, here are articles, diagrams and videos giving you the basics of how to tap.
Start by tapping continuously on the Karate Chop point, while repeating the following three phrases. Even though I still can’t quite imagine who I’d be if I felt confident and worthy and whole, what if this healing could unfold with ease? Even though it still doesn’t feel safe to let go of the protection low self esteem has given me, what if I could feel safe AND confident in my unique brilliance? If you can identify the characteristics of low self-esteem, the next step is to change the way you think about yourself and how you handle things in your life. My relationship with my family being seen from a positive outlook has made me aware of how great life really is.
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.
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.
We will feel more resilient and more able to try something and regardless of the outcome still feel good about ourselves.
They never allow themselves to digest or own or celebrate the good experiences that they generate and create in their lives. They are frequently incredibly supportive of others and yet don't offer themselves the same level of support and regard.
A Debby Downer is someone who always looks at life pessimistically; nothing is ever good enough. This will lead to more positive self-talk and experiences that can radically boost your self-esteem into a positive and beautiful place.
For once I listened to what she was saying about my adverse behavior and chanced upon this site.


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.
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. 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.
And not only do they not reward themselves but they don't receive compliments easily either.
Even if a child is encouraged to have a go and confidence is built, if achievement is never recognized and celebrated then the feel good factor will be missing and the outcome won't be internally consolidated. 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!! Confidence is also something we can learn, like a skill, and the more we do, the more our confidence will grow.
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. 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.
A Debby Downer has a general negative outlook and this pessimism creates low-self esteem and feelings of unhappiness. 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.
If your inner critic is a default position that you slide into easily then this may take a few practice runs.
Despite being confident the feel good factor is missing and my poor self-esteem will remain. 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.
