Self-Esteem : confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect.
Few days ago, a friend (From Kenya) asked me to publish something on “Self-esteem” .
Thus, I’m putting this together for him and I hope this helps someone.
Self-esteem is a simple thing but people complicate things.
Self-esteem isn’t about empty ego or bragging, self-esteem is about one simple thing – Confidence.
Growing up as a kid, I had zero issues with self-esteem because my mom nurtured me with confidence.
About three months ago, someone accused me of being “too confident”.
I knew immediately that he was lying , he was just “too insecure” to admit that I was freaking good on stage.
Self-esteem has nothing to do with being egocentric as I stated earlier, it’s more about being CERTAIN that you can pull something off.
Self-esteem also has nothing to do with just feeling good about yourself.
It’s about knowing within you that you’re the KING/QUEEN at a given field.
How can you be that confident? Simple, Make Things Happen. I remember as a kid (At school) , I would lead the drama crew for a play.
At the same time, I could remember that I led the dance crew too.
You see, I grew up with the mindset that when I’m at “My Zone” or area of expertise, I freaking make things happen.
You want to have a great self-esteem? Do things. It doesn’t happen in your head, bring it to life.
This is my take on self-esteem. Bill Gates put it perfectly when he said – “The world doesn’t care about your self esteem, start making something of yourself today , right now”.
Have a great week.
