When others look at you, what do they see? What would you like them to see? A confident, successful person brimming with ideas and energy? Or a fearful, passive person? Others see you as you see yourself. Your image of yourself is a reflection of your self-esteem, which defines your level of professional success and personal happiness. In The Thriving Self, renowned psychologist Nathaniel Branden reveals the tremendous power of healthy self-esteem and the crucial importance of building up your self-confidence. He explains why:
- The mind must trust itself
- Healthy self-esteem is so important in love
- Low self-esteem is related to the fear of success
- Perseverance and the ability to bounce back from life's setbacks are both related to your self-image
A healthy self-image gives you the confidence to cope with the challenges of life. It leads you to more exciting and demanding pursuits, both personally and professionally. Listen to The Thriving Self and find out how rewarding life can be once you learn to believe in yourself.
