Self-Esteem is the overall impression you hold of yourself; including how much you value yourself and how you rate your abilities as well as limitations.
“Self-esteem is about our perceptions and beliefs in who we are and what we are capable of. Our self-esteem can be misaligned with other people's perception of who we are.
Interestingly enough, self-esteem has little to do with actual talent or ability. It’s quite possible for someone who is good at something to have poor self-esteem, while someone who struggles at a particular topic might have good self-esteem."*

Low self-esteem can be a significant obstacle that holds a person back from succeeding in all aspects of life. It is painful to not feel good about yourself, focusing on your limitations rather than recognizing and valuing your abilities, skills and natural talents. Raising your self-esteem leads naturally to a place of power.
Your thoughts and beliefs have a huge impact on your self-esteem. The good news is thoughts and beliefs can be influenced. It is possible to learn how to replace negative, disempowering thoughts and beliefs with healthier, more realistic ones. You can explore this and other ways to achieve a healthier self-esteem with a life coach -- resulting in a more balanced life.
