Many very successful business people lack self-esteem in some areas of their lives. Perhaps they feel socially challenged or they have difficulty establishing close or intimate relationships. Perhaps they experience low self-esteem with regard to their physical appearance or their health. Perhaps they are not having any fun in their lives, maybe devoting too much attention to their work. Many “successful” people are driven to succeed.
High SELF-ESTEEM is the Prerequisite for fulfillment, happiness, accomplishment, for developing respect and empathy for others, for taking responsibility for making our lives work. It is necessary for self-motivation, positive expectation, to effectively deal with challenges, and to expect to overcome problems. You must love yourself to be able to love others. Low Self-Esteem is often associated with criminal behavior, drug & alcohol addiction, violence, eating disorders, school drop outs, low socio-economic status, aggressive, egotistical, harmful, and defensive behavior
