SELF ESTEEM

A lot of things we hear these days about becoming successful and creating a better life. There are many teachers and philosophers those who talk about this. Many of these thoughts are useful and effective when used properly. To become successful requires so many qualities like Positive Thinking, Self-esteem, Passion, Taking risks, Leadership, Focus etc.

One of my favorite success coach is Mr. Jack Canfield.                                                         I once came across the “Poker Chip Theory OF Self- Esteem”

“This theory states that – If two people went to a casino with 10$ to bet and one with 100$, the person with 10$ is going to bet more cautiously  because if he looses even 5$ he is out of the game, where as the other person can lose 5$ twenty times to be out of the game, even if he looses 10 times he is still in the game. Therefore they can bet more freely and self-esteem is the same way.

If I have low self-esteem I tend not to risk as much – I don’t share my ideas in staff meeting I don’t risk investing money, I don’t ask people out on dates, I am afraid to make requests and stand up for my self, because I have such a low self-esteem that if I lose by being rejected or by loosing in the eyes of others, my self-esteem level will be zero. Therefore I do everything I can to protect what little I have. Soon these type of people become very defensive, they don’t play, they don’t play, they withdraw from life”. It means that our self-esteem is like poker chips if you have a lot of poker chips you will play more freely.

To be successful, it’s important for people to build up their self-esteem and their confidence, partially by having successes – which build up your confidence – but also by taking care of your psychological functions. Most people don’t even realize they have these functions and that they’re responsible for controlling and maintaining them.

HELLO AND WELCOME :

Hey friends,

How are you all and  thanks in advance for visiting my blog . I hope you will enjoy it.

” If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness,selfishness, and fears”. — Glenn Clark

 So what is  Adventure : It depends from person to person and what he believes about himself and life. both beliefs are important.

There cannot be an exact definition for it but what I feel about it is that it is all about having fun and following your heart, taking risks and taking chances doing something new or taking a vacation or something. It’s not important what a man gets after becoming  successful or in doing something but the man he becomes while achieving that.

Coming out of comfort zone or doing something new energizes you, isn’t it. Most of the time when you see movies especially hollywood and come to know how the third world is, don’t we feel that there is something more in the world that every one of us should experience. That to have fun, buy cool stuffs, do some bungee jumping or rafting.

As Hellen Keller says -

 “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”
