The Roots, Effects and Solutions to Low Self-Esteem
The Roots, Effects and Solutions to
Fact: Nearly 87% of the population suffers from low self-esteem in one or more areas of their life. It could be work, it could be relationships, it could be making financial decisions, or your physical appearance.
Fact: Nearly all self-esteem issues are rooted in childhood. This is when the fragile ego is either strengthened or broken. What is told to us as children we assume as a fact…an indisputable truth. Hence, if we are fed a lot of critical and negative statements as children, we internalize them as true. And then we begin to record them as our own assessment of ourselves. It becomes an endless loop of negative self-talk that we carry on into our adulthood. There it wreaks havoc on our life, costing us in relationships, happiness, joy and success.
In my personal quest to continually provide the best solutions and programs for my clients, I am constantly researching information. Recently I was working on new techniques to help clients with low self-esteem. By the time I was done, I was dismayed with the huge amounts of useless information and tips. It was all focused on, “just do this” and “just do that”. They made it sound like it was so easy to fix this issue. But it is not. And very few articles gave the “how to” of “just do it”.
I understood that if I found it useless, I know those looking for answers to their own low self-esteem issues probably walked away feeling hopeless.
