The Pillars of Self Esteem - Part One - Foundations | Ep. 13

Defining self esteem and why it's so important to our well being.

Discussing self-esteem is crucial to reaching our potential regarding the care of self and how to bring about our best selves. Self-esteem is something we can all build and grow within ourselves.

Our level of self-esteem will influence everything we do. There is no escaping the relationship with ourselves and its impact on our lives. Many of us attempt to avoid this work to our detriment.

This is the first part of a five-part series on self-esteem. We discuss what it is, how we can influence it, and how others influence it. Self-esteem work matters to each of us as it’s the underlying vibe and energy we bring to life. Depending on our scale, it will either hinder or help our progression in life.

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

A quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • The work of Nathanial Branden

  • Defining self-esteem

  • The impact of self-esteem

  • Self-esteem as a basic need

  • The survival value of self-esteem

  • The root of our need for self-esteem

  • Self-esteem in action

  • Self-esteem illusions

By learning about self-esteem and understanding how it impacts our lives, we can begin to work to improve it. Self-esteem is an achievement, and it’s within grasp for each of us willing to do the work.

This reality is both terrifying and empowering. We can do something about it, but it’s challenging work that takes time and effort.

I also look to learn from the great minds throughout history, and in today’s show, we discuss Nathanial Branden and his work on self-esteem. There’s so much to his work I decided to do a 3-part series to get deep into these concepts.

The goal is to find things that resonate to be used in your life today, so studying the various concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools needed to tap into your highest potential.

You can find a link to the show’s transcript here. The first one, so I’ll get better at editing and cleanup, but this is better than nothing for now.

I hope you enjoy it!
