“Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”~Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you focus on faults and dwell on insecurities? Often, we are our own harshest critics and can always be kinder to ourselves. 

Are you comfortable in your own skin? Sometimes low self-esteem can be deeply rooted with origins in traumatic childhood experience or hits later in life triggered by negative life events. As a result, we can feel powerless and get sucked into a downward spiral. 

Can self-confidence truly be gained, or is it something that most people naturally have? Ultimately self-confidence plays a huge role in happiness in life, relationships, jobs, and anything you want to succeed at. 

If you want to focus on self-improvement, you can consciously create a blueprint to work on what you can change. 

Some questions we ask: 

  1. Why do we dismiss 9 compliments but fixate on 1 criticism? (2:00)
  2. We love others despite their flaws, why can’t we embrace ourselves? (4:00) 
  3. When do you reward yourself and celebrate personal victories? (9:00)
  4. If you have a recurring negative thought, why don’t you rewire your brain to challenge and replace it something positive and reinforcing? (15:00) 
  5. Do you compare yourself to who you were last month or last year? (16:00)
  6. If you don’t have something you think that you are good at, what did you like doing as a kid? (18:00) 
  7. Haters gonna hate! Do you know the difference between a distasteful joke or a backhanded compliment that leaves you feeling bad about yourself? (26:00)

In this episode, we dive into the 2 key elements under your control, self-love, and self-respect. Both aspects have an exponentially positive effect on your self-confidence. 

  1. Self-love means that you have a more positive outlook, take better care of yourself and worry less about others think. 
  2. Self-respect is shaped when you acquire a new skill, hone expertise and stand up for your beliefs. 

The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. Although you can change the things you don’t like, be aware of them and accept them anyway.

Love yourself because you are all that you have!
