I think the importance of self esteem cannot be underestimated. It affects your behaviour and thoughts. It changes how you feel about and value yourself.
Can you imagine anything else so important?
Why Should Self Esteem Matter to You?
- Self esteem can be the difference between success and failure
- Esteem can affect your thinking, causing your outlook to be positive or negative
- Esteem affects your confidence
- It affects your self image
- If you do not value yourself how will you be able to value others?
- Self esteem enables you to have the right attitude to succeed at work
- It affects your happiness
Let’s take a moment or two to look a bit more closely at what I’ve said above – and then I hope that you will appreciate just how important self esteem is to you.
Your potential to achieve what you most desire is directly related to your self esteem. On the other hand, failure is much more likely when you suffer from low self esteem because you will believe others when they tell you why you cannot succeed. Work on building your self esteem and success can be that much easier.
I’m sure you realise the importance of positive thinking. Increase your esteem and you will become more positive. This will benefit you in every area of your life. Read more about optimism here.
Do you Have a Problem with Self Confidence?
Self esteem affects your confidence, how important is that? If you want to rise to any challenge you must believe in yourself. Without confidence in what you can do and in who you are what chance do you have of happiness or success?

Self image is another important part of how you feel about yourself. Low self esteem means that you will have a poor image of yourself and this will result in a loss of confidence. Your social skills will also suffer and you will find it harder to socialize because others will respond negatively to your lack of confidence.

Self esteem will also help you at work. Your confidence and positive attitude will enable you to look and feel your best. You will have no trouble presenting yourself in a favourable light because you will be full of self respect and comfortable with who you are.
Do You Value Yourself?
Value yourself, your ability and your contribution in the world because you are unique. Do you understand this? You cannot value and respect others unless you first value and respect yourself.
