I totally understand the effects of low self esteem and how a person with low self esteem feels. Because I was someone with low self esteem. Over the years, I build my self esteem through various methods, which I’m going to share with you in this 7 part series.
I am never a perfectionist, but I met many perfectionist. Some of them my clients, some of them are participants of Procrastination Buster Workshop. One of the reasons of procrastination is perfectionism.
Perfectionist tends to be highly analytical and meticulous. This nature prevents them to take any form of action that can move them forward in life. They do not believe in possibilities, they believe in certainty. They won’t act until things are perfect in their eyes.
If you study the life of successful people in the world, their life consists of 80% routine and 20% spontaneous. This doesn’t apply to only the wealthy businessman, but to the famous artists, scientists, celebrities, singers, athletics etc. They live in an organized and structured life.
Artists or singers may seem to lack a structured or routine life, because they don’t have a 9-5 job. Now that’s not entirely true. The successful ones create structures in their life. They live in an organized and structured manner which enable them reach their dreams.
I started business thinking that I can have time freedom. Bad mindset.
“What do you want in life?” A question that I always asked my clients. The response was usually, “I don’t know. How do I find my passion?”
This is such an important question to life, but many don’t have an answer. Knowing your passion opens the door to a passionate life. Knowing your passion guide you on any future decisions you are making. Knowing your passion provides you more energy to life.
It’s such a painful feeling of not knowing your passion, isn’t it? Don’t you feel lost not knowing what do you want in life? Every week, I hear “I don’t know” from people whom I cared for. Every week I feel this same pain and lost from people who is searching for a way out.
Self confidence comes from within. But some places mentioned that you build self confidence from with-out. Example like learning a skill, achieving a goal, dressing well or changing your physical appearance. No doubt you will improve self confidence by these methods, but you don’t get to address the cause of the lack of self confidence.
