What everyone can benefit from is the basic fundamentals of self esteem and confidence building.

When you need a bigger and better you, confidence courses will help you get the boost that you need. Transform yourself from where you are to where you always wanted to be.

Healthy self esteem and increasing your confidence can dramatically change your life.  Confidence courses are one way to help you get a step by step guide on increasing your self esteem and confidence.

I have gone from a very insecure and low esteem person to a person with a lot of confidence. I have done it solely on using courses and books on how to build confidence and learning to love oneself. I know it sounds cheesy and cliche but I promise if you invest your time and energy into a few good books and/or confidence course it will make a HUGE difference.

how to start a self esteem group?

Posted by admin

I am a sophomore in high school. My friend and I wanted to start a self esteem group to help younger kids with low self esteem. we were thinking elementary school maybe middle school. We have looked up activity’s and we think it would be very beneficial for the kids. how would we go about getting this group started?

Earn lot of good-will from people and always do quality work if you want to be in limelight. Then practice.

Practice means repeated or continuous effort to follow the discipline and order, which gives permanent control for the mind and its thought waves. This is well done through exercises of our will power and reasoning power. When we talk of EFFORT, it means that we should put proper, adequate, concerted, sustained and unlimited effort for channelizing and giving right direction to the mind.

This practice becomes firmly grounded when it has been cultivated through our BEHAVIOUR and HABIT for a long time, uninterruptedly with earnest devotion.

Practice cannot become perfect unless we have clarity of understanding. Clarity of understanding comes when we put all our life’s efforts towards experimenting with TRUTH.

How do I improve my self esteem?

I’m not the skinniest or prettiest I could be, but there’s not much I can do about that. So is there any sort of ‘exercise’ or something that I can do to make me feel better about my body image?

There really isn’t an external way to boost your self esteem. This is corny but you need to stop worrying about whether you are as skinny and pretty as you could be. I’m sure that you are really pretty; you’ve just distorted your mind into believing that you are not.

A. physical health.
B. average health.
C. good self-esteem.

I think it’s either wellness or good self esteem because the average health and physical health dont make alot of sense to this..I think its wellness but im not sure..what do you think?


How to best lose weight and over come self-esteem issues?

Posted by admin

Hi there:

So when I start losing weight I get really scared. I get tons of comments and I begin obscessing over how I look. My sense of value and worth depends on the number of compliments and looks I get. How do I overcome this hurdle in losing weight?

Also, what is some good advice on losing weight. I hear diet and exercise, but any more specifics?

Thank you.

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It’s not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym – a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).
By and by you will get used to these compliments, and will understand
that these were just empty words – I do not mean you were not looking
good, of course you did, but people did not give them to you thinkingly,
but more because they had manners. You are not used to being admired,
so what, it got a little into your head. It’s normal. Enjoy it some, and by and by
you will find other sources of enjoyment. Soon people get used to the way you look
and won’t say anything anymore anyway.

What do you think of pro athleletes having higher self esteem than scientists?

I know enough about psychology to know this.

physical exercise, lots of girls, etc gets those endorphins going more so than book study.

in fact its better for the brain (overall) to exercise than sit in a classroom and learn.

Smart men are great
