Self esteem is the feeling I have about my self-concept. When what I want for myself matches what I perceive myself to be, I have a positive self-concept, which in turn helps me feel as alive, self-determining, self-aware, significant, competent and likable as I want to be. Self Esteem comes from choosing successfully to be the type of person I want to be.

Jack Canfield Self Esteem Quotes

  • “To the degree that I experience myself as being like my ideal, and as being unlike the self I want to avoid, I have positive self esteem”.
  • “The next approach to improving my self esteem is through exploring the origins of these unsatisfactory feelings and opinions about myself. Where did I get my ideas about who I am?”.
  • “I recommend that you frequently let your people know how much you appreciate them. I ‘ve never yet met a person who didn’t want to be appreciated, and if that’s the way you feel, you should express your appreciation”.
  • “How can I heighten my self esteem?. The answer to these questions lies in the concept of choice: I assume I choose my feelings and behavior because, ineffective as they may seem , I believe they will lead to a payoff. When I choose low self esteem, it is because I get payoff for it”.

Excerpts

Heart at Work. Stories and Strategies for Building Self Esteem and Reawakening the Soul at Work

Although we can’t raise anyone’s self esteem but our own, we can take action in the workplace that nurtures and supports the growing of others’ self esteem. The following eight behavioral keys are useful in enhancing self esteem. Mc Cleery has found that the restaurant managers who use these keys consciously and consistently have the happiest staff, which puts money in the bank instead of into training employees who become turnovers statistics. When these eight behavioral keys become second nature or a knee jerk reaction instead of merely good ideas, then our workplaces will be true breeding grounds for positive self esteem. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Each individual key represents a set of specific behaviors that must be learned, practice and used conscientiously for best results. From Heart at Work: Stories and Strategies for Building Self-esteem and Reawakening the Soul at Work.(page 55).

Teach personal limits. Most of us were never taught how to set our personal limits with other people, we were never taught how to tell someone respectfully that his or her behavior feels abusive and is therefore unacceptable to us. Abuse of any form (eg. verbal and nonverbal), as well as exploitation in the name of being open, hones or assertive, should be considered unacceptable behavior. Everyone, no matter what the position or tile, has the right to set personal limits. By taking care of ourselves, our own needs and tie requirements, we serve as role models for others. Sometimes it is necessary to say to a verbally disrespectful employee: Your behavior is completely unacceptable to me and continuing it will demonstrate your choice to accept the consequences. From Heart at Work: Stories and Strategies for Building Self-esteem and Reawakening the Soul at Work.(page 59).
