Do you have a lot of professional knowledge and still feel that your business isn't reaching the level it should?
If this is the case, the problem most likely has nothing to do with your professional ability. The missing puzzle piece may instead center on one critical factor that affects the results of your business and your life more than anything else - the perceptions and beliefs you have about yourself - Your Self-esteem.
Self-esteem is critical to the inner game underlying business success and, in fact, success in all areas of life. Frankly, it is critical to our mental capability.
Why is it critical?
Positive self-esteem is vital because it frees us from debilitating emotions and disturbing thoughts that simply hinder our gaining real success and real harmony and joy in our life that will last. High or natural self-esteem is manifested in a wonderful feeling of inner-balance, grounded on self-acceptance and a healthy, comforting self-respect towards yourself. This is very different from self-confidence which is grounded in what you know you can deal with and accomplish.
Another vital benefit of positive self-esteem is the increased access it gives us to our Intuition. Intuition is an amazing ability we all are gifted with as human beings. (Albert Einstein called it our sacred gift. Bill Gates in a widely publicized statement said: "Often, the only thing we had to rely on was - Intuition".
It is often referred to as our Inner Guide since it secretly reveals to us what we should do or pay attention to in many important situations, particularly in situations where our rational thought processes are of limited help.
Low self-esteem, on the other hand, makes us react negatively to many events that occur in our lives, because it allows debilitating emotions and disturbing thoughts to take control over us - sometimes this happens on a subconscious level we're not even aware of. This presents us with difficulties that hinder our ability to handle the many situations in our lives in a way that is good for us.
Low self-esteem blocks real success, inner-balance and harmony in our lives in a demoralizing way. It also makes us unhappy and erodes our sense well-being.
We should therefore never underestimate the importance of raising our self-esteem because it has a huge impact on how our life will turn out.
