Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself as a person. It comes from an inner knowing that you are competent, confident, and worthy of a good life.
Many of you know my personal story from having read my best-selling book “Man Shoes”. For those of you who don’t – the early years of my life were spent bouncing from one foster home to the next, settling in with Jim and Edwina Watson who were an elderly retired couple living on a farm in the northern parts of Alberta, Canada. For some reason Jim and Edwina decided I was their retirement project.
Use positive words when you are speaking about yourself. Instead of saying “I can’t”, use “I can”. For example: Replace “I can’t walk all that way” with “I can walk for 15 minutes”. What can you do that you are proud of?
