Self-improvement & Personal development
Self-esteem – the way we think and feel about our self – and confidence – the way we feel and operate in the world – are essentials for happiness and peace of mind. Thinking of our self as not being as good as others in some way is what is behind low self-esteem or lack of confidence.
In fact, it’s estimated that roughly 85% of people worldwide have low self-esteem and it has been linked to violent behavior, low academic achievement and suicide. Often, the thoughts about how others may judge us are what are behind these painful and debilitating feelings. In turn, those thoughts are often our own judgements of ourselves which we are ascribing to others. So – if you think to yourself that you’re not good enough in one way or another, you may then extend that thought to think that other people think you’re not good enough, you will start to believe that. Thinking and believing that we’re not good enough is exactly what drains confidence and self-esteem.
The skillful balancing of self-improvement and personal development can be achieved through certain skills that are necessary for a decent life. The meaning of self-improvement and personal development is not egocentric and selfish. We have the opportunity to reassess and review the conditions that surround us and to define and re-evaluate our role in the lives of others. In this way we can reconsider our role and rediscover ways to be useful to other people.
The process of self-improvement and personal development requires thinking style change and behavioral actions that go beyond the self-centred approach. Working with a professional can guide you to assess your current self-actualization needs and to reach beyond determine the ways to enrich the personal experiences of others.
