As a woman working in a highly competitive industry, I find that when I am at my lowest, it is replicated in the results I get; how much training work I am bringing in, the positivity and results my clients and learners are receiving. I recently recognised and was able to overcome extended depression that was invading my life – it started with the death of my Mom over 10 years ago.  I probably would have gotten through this sad time with my support circle firmly around me, however I moved to Australia not knowing anyone other than my husband to be. My story may be personal to me, but I am sure that many of you have experienced life’s’ changes and found yourself questioning and doubting yourself at some point. It is when the period of self-doubt and self-negativity continues for an extended time, that it starts to take over every area of your life and starts to impact on your ability to function at your peak. The ability to recognise through your self-awareness that you have a challenge around your self-confidence is vital to recovery and rolling forward.  And, to have close ones around you who love and have your best interests at heart, to give you gentle, loving and firm feedback when they see you self-sabotaging. Marcus Buckingham, “arguably the business world’s most in-demand  management guru according to Business Week Magazine  and founder of Strengths-Based Leadership has done work around this and he has some cool stories to prove that focusing on your strengths is far more helpful than trying to kick a dead horse with your areas of weakness. He says: The key to increasing team productivity, customer satisfaction and employee retention is to make sure that you and your team members have the chance to play to your strengths every day. Sure, try to improve one or two things about your areas for improvement, but don’t spend all of your time here, it’s just wasteful! Once you have identified your strengths, it’s essential that you set in motion your goals.   I am always amazed how few people actually sit down, plan and write out their goals. It is very true why they say that only 2% of the world’s population are successful in becoming financially independent, even though 99% of us would love to be so… The 2% set specific, visionary goals that are quantitative. If you are going to change your life, you have to change the way you are doing things right now! When you have a problem, rather than seeing it in the negative which causes our brain to shut-down its thinking capabilities and to go into “threat” or survival mode, its more useful to “re-frame the problem” into a context that we can work with. Read them out loud at least once a day, and the best time to do it would be just before you go down for the night because your brain will have a chance to mull over how it will achieve this for you while your body takes a rest….
Have You got your Priorities Straight – or have you lost focus?Kerry Anne Cassidy This past week our oldest and smallest member of our family, Ziggy, our 15 year old miniature schnauzer, passed away. You can boost your self confidence with the help of hypnosis.People who are confident and self-assured tend to be those who are naturally sociable, who   achieve success in their chosen profession or career and who take full advantage of all opportunities that come their way in life. Many of us will suffer with a lack of confidence at some point in our lives and this is only naturalhowever for some people this lack of confidence is an almost constant backdrop in their lives. Many of the features, and the impact, of low self-confidence mirror issues associated with problems such as anxiety, stress, and social phobia and it is likely that many people who have low self-confidence also suffer aspects of these other difficulties. Low self-esteem ALWAYS forms in childhood when the individual is developing an initial view of how he or she, as a person, fits into the world.
Signs of low self-esteem: social withdrawal, sensitivity to criticism, hostility, excessive pre-occupation with personal problems, physical symptoms like head aches, fatigue and insomnia (sleep disorders). 3. Some people may require talking to a counselor or an expert, especially those who went through a more challenging past.
A person should not allow the low self-esteem to hinder him or her from realizing the true potentials.

If you think you are suffering from a low self-esteem, you can chat anonymously to a facilitator on the MobieG LIVE CHAT.
Just to reiterate, the purpose of this self esteem video series is help you discover why your level of self esteem is the most crucial element to achieving happiness and success and why so many of us lack the esteem essential for healthy relationships and a fulfilling life! FIRST- Hit one of the funky buttons below and post this page on your favourite social media platform (please help others and spread the word). The term self-esteem is meant to describe how individuals evaluate their own self-worth, but this definition is hazy at best.
Thus, pretty much everyone can furnish his or her own definition of what self-esteem entails, albeit imprecisely. Are Brown students—known for balancing the pursuit of passions with academics—inclined to sacrifice pleasure to increase their levels of self-worth?
Associate Director of Psychological Services Sherri Nelson describes Brown students as “interested in accomplishments” and as accomplished in a variety of areas. Many students would agree that this is the time for them to focus on themselves, but that this tendency is not extreme enough to be considered narcissistic. Studies have found that the popular notion that increased self-esteem corresponds with improved academic performance is false. Considering this slew of findings and the reality of how self-esteem plays out at places like Brown, one would hope that, down the road, self-esteem issues will fade out from under the public eye. All of us have experienced knocks and bangs to our self-confidence at different times in our lives.  And, for the most part, we recover and bounce back.
So often we tend to focus on our weaknesses and put in place plans and moves to improve these weaknesses.  Can you imagine focusing on what you are good at and figuring out why you are good at it and seeing how you can improve still further? I specialise in the science of Emotional Intelligence and incorporate the knowledge, tools and techniques from the fields of Neuro-science, NLP, Positive Psychology and researching global thought leaders.
People are attracted to confident people and enjoy spending time in their company: they tend to be happier and more relaxed, and are often easier to be with than those who lack self-confidence and self-esteem.
This is to reassure the self of the many capabilities and potentials that may be developed.
Hugging may be a very simple act, but this could very well give warmth to a dampened spirit. Educators seek to increase it, brands capitalize on it, and medicine warns against having too little of it. A study of undergraduates at the University of Michigan that was published last October asserted that American college students value boosts to their self-esteem over activities such as eating their favorite foods, having sex, drinking alcohol, and spending time with friends. What you’re portraying as a person will be well accepted by whatever cohort you’re a part of,” according to Anthony Urena ’12. None of the individuals interviewed perceived narcissism as a common quality among students. The emphasis placed on simultaneous self-exploration and community involvement at Brown reinforces this notion.

Nam Pham ’13 noted that students he has met suffer frequently from self-esteem that is too low. There’s even a national organization dedicated to it (The National Association for Self-Esteem). These self-esteem boosts are indicators of result-driven productivity, such as earning good grades or landing competitive internships. Although there is often a trade-off between working hard and socializing, she said, both are important. Keith Campbell, for example, argues that narcissism, or extremely high self-esteem, is on the rise in the US. In fact, none of those interviewed could identify a single person they would consider a narcissist. To pathologize the issue and to conflate it with addiction are perhaps a rhetorical attempt to gain public attention.
It’s probably time for us to get over the media hype of self-esteem and to contemplate how the focus on having too much or too little self-esteem may in fact cause us to overlook other important aspects of our personalities. This is especially the case in the United States where, according to Brown Professor of Psychology Joachim Krueger, between two-thirds and three-fourths of individuals have high self-esteem.
The findings of this study suggest that students are prone to behave in ways that will build their self-esteem. For Yisak and Clermont, defining certain activities as either self-esteem building or pleasurable seems irrelevant, as they often fall into both categories. Proponents of this stance perceive inflated self-esteem as a cause of socially detrimental behavior. Recent studies confirm that narcissism is not nearly as common in today’s youth as some make it out to be. My best friend’s husband is a psychologist and his busiest time of year is the period just after New Year, leading up to Valentine’s day. In other words people with narcissistic inclinations take advantage of others, or lash out when threatened in order to preserve their self-esteem.
Rather than labeling this generation as “Generation Me,” one study published in Perspectives on Psychological Science last year concluded, “every generation is Generation Me.” It seems that a measured amount of narcissism is the norm.
Students were asked to list the most—and least—liked of their peers, and this ranking was compared to the self-esteem scores of the individuals.
