Developing and Enhancing Self-esteem and Assertion skills

“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself”.

Poor Self-Image Behaviour Traits:-

Jealousy; Negative self talk; High self hatred; Experiencing guilt; Failure to give and accept compliments; Not valuing own needs; Not asking for what one needs; Starving oneself of luxuries unnecessarily; Failure to give, receive or enjoy affection; Criticism and judgment of others [which is actually of self]; Comparison of self with others; Constant poor health; Lack of initiative and pro-activity: Blame; Lack of forgiveness of self and others.

The bottom line, is that a people suffering from low self-esteem and poor assertion skills, feel relatively helpless and powerless to consciously utilize opportunities, to secure the work they want, or to create and develop the life or relationships they would prefer.  Their lack of belief and sense of unworthiness in themselves keeps them trapped in limits, misery and dissatisfaction.
