What is Confidence and Self Esteem?
What is Confidence?
Confidence is a remarkable quality that empowers us to embrace challenges, express ourselves authentically, and achieve our goals with a strong belief in our abilities to make possible whatever positive changes we desire.
It is an inner strength that radiates from within and positively influences every aspect of our lives.
What is Self Esteem
Self-esteem refers to the overall perception we hold about ourselves, encompassing our worth, value, and sense of self.
It reflects the level of respect and love we have for ourselves, affecting our relationships, career, and personal fulfillment.
How is Lack of Confidence and Self-Esteem Caused?
The roots of low confidence and self-esteem can be multifaceted. Negative experiences, criticism, comparison, traumatic events, and limiting beliefs can all contribute to a diminished sense of self-worth.
Over time, these factors can hinder personal growth, limit opportunities, and lead to feelings of insecurity and self-doubt.
