Dont confuse self-esteem with arrogance: Arrogance is an overevaluation of your worth, while self-esteem is a healthy opinion of yourselfits valuing yourself to the point that you dont allow other people or negative situations and circumstance to influence the way you feel about yourself. Until you value yourself, you wont value anything, and other people wont value you either. After all, your relationship with yourself is the most important one youll ever have.
When youre filled with self-doubt, give yourself a little pep talk. Repeat aloud the following, A 30-Second Commercial to Me:
[Your name ], you are great! You are a unique individual, a new kind of person the world has never known. You were born to do well. You were born to succeed. You were born to bless the lives of others. You were born to be great, and you have what it takes to be great. You are enthusiastic, optimistic, and a change-embracer. You are a giver, rather than a taker. You are organized. You are a hard worker. You are happy. You are a master over yourself, you are a leader. You are a big thinker. As blessed as you are with all these talents, there isnt one thing in the world you cant do. You will never fail. [Your name], go out and make today an ˜attitude is everything day!
