“How we feel about ourselves crucially affects virtually every aspect of our experience, from the way we function at work, in life, in sex, to the way we operate as parents to how high in life we are likely to rise. Our response to the happenings in our everyday life are shaped by who and what we are.”
Self-esteem is the key to success or failure.
Self-esteem has another value-it also holds the key to understanding ourselves and other people.
I cannot think of a single psychological problem that is not traceable to a poor self-concept.
Positive self-esteem is a cardinal requirement of a fulfilling life.
