Daily Encouragement for 7-4-24

Today’s topic is esteem. When I think about esteem, I think of the two types: self-esteem and external esteem. Self-esteem is the internal aspect of esteem, where you value yourself, recognize your worth, and have confidence in your abilities. High self-esteem involves:

  • Feeling good about who you are.
  • Believing in your capabilities.
  • Maintaining a positive self-image.

Self-esteem is a powerful force that shapes your outlook on life. It’s not just about feeling good about yourself or believing in your capabilities; it’s about how these feelings influence your resilience, motivation, and perspective on the world.

External esteem, on the other hand, involves the respect, recognition, and appreciation you receive from others. It’s about acknowledging your achievements, validating your efforts, and earning the respect of your team, family, and community. This external esteem helps you feel valued and appreciated, fostering a sense of belonging. Every day is an opportunity to start new. No matter where you find yourself, you can choose to change the trajectory of your situation. You may not be where you want to be, but this moment does not define you. Choose today to push the needle 1%. You are only stuck if you stop. Remember, your happiness is your responsibility.
