Women And Self Esteem

Self-esteem, as defined in the dictionary, is “pride in oneself; self-respect.”  All too often, young girls who lack self-esteem carry the same subjective view of themselves as they become adult women.  What tools can be used to develop pride, self-respect, and self-esteem?  One unique way is to utilize the services of a life coach.

A Personal Coach is someone who can be objective, who will work with you to find ways you can enhance your life, help you to build your self-esteem and self-respect in all areas of your life, mentor you when facing difficult decisions, and work with you to help you become the person you have always wanted to be.

Perhaps you are a person who feels you deserve nothing more than you already have, or too shy to confront issues on a daily basis.  Maybe you’ve become so negative in your thinking that you are sabotaging the very thing you want most in life – love, happiness, and respect.

Lack of self-esteem closes you to all of the possibilities in life.  You act differently, dress in no particular style, and avoid situations which make you uncomfortable.  You also may be stressed when confronted with new situations, as any type of change may be literally painful.  Lack of self-esteem may drive you to think only of others and put your hopes and dreams on the back burner because you feel it isn’t important.  Thus, you are not living for you, but in spite of you.

If you have low self-esteem and can’t find a way out, it’s time to take action and embrace the help and encouragement a personal coach can offer.  More often than not, a person with low self-esteem finds it difficult to believe there is someone out there who is completely objective and who cares about you.  While family members may tell you what they think you need to hear, the personal coach will tell you what is true and help you deal with the reality of that truth.

As a personal success coach I can help you find out

  • who you are as a person, a friend, a colleague, and a partner. 
  • help you to open up a world you never thought existed
  • help you to build a foundation upon which your life can be changed for the better
  • help you to become more self-confident at home, at work, in social settings, and in relationships
  • enable you to find meaning, focus, and direction. 

A Personal coach is analogous to that inner voice telling you to take a chance, realize your full potential, avoid negativity, and become empowered.

Why call upon my services to be your personal coach?  Because you are worthy, your life has meaning, and you do matter.  Listen to your inner voice and contact me today.

Why Must You Bring Congruency Into Your Life?

When you look at your life, how do you feel about it? Does it appear to be chaotic, confusing, overwhelming at times? Or does it appear to be a unified, continuous, joyful whole, progressing triumphantly towards your life goals?

Most of us live somewhere between these two extremes. Some days we’re “on a roll”, full of confidence and unstoppable. Some days we just seem to be running round in circles, burning all our energy, full of doubt and apprehension and getting nowhere.

So how to we get to spend more time in unstoppable mode, building our self esteem?

One key thing that we need to do is to live our lives congruently…


Do you tend to compartmentalise your life – maybe you break it up so that your work life you do what has to be done to earn a living, in your home life you do what you enjoy and from time to time you try to make sense of it. And your health just gets a back seat 😦

Or maybe you break your life down in other ways – you’re this person to your family and another person to your friends, someone else to your boss and so on…

When you live this way life gets complicated and stressful. You are constantly rushing from A to B, juggling different balls, trying to be different people in different contexts – and what happens when inevitably when two compartments that you have so carefully created overlap – your family meets your friends or your boss!!! Very stressful.

Trying to maintain all these different compartments burns a tremendous amount of mental and even physical energy. When you spend too long in one of your compartments the others start to feel neglected and your only solution is work even harder to juggle all the balls and keep them all in the air. Inevitably one gets dropped, all too often it’s your health or your personal relationships, and then you have real problems.


Luckily there is a better way to live – make sure you live your life congruently.

What if you only had 1 ball to juggle instead of 10 – you’d have no problem keep it in the air would you? That would be so easy – you could do it confidently, your self esteem would rise as you mastered the skill and your could even learn a few fancy tricks:-).

Carrying that analogy over to your life then, congruency is simply the decision to stop compartmentalising your life and to start treating it as one unified whole. Making sure you live your life by one simple set of rules where everything fits together is the best form of mental self help.

It may well take you some time to rearrange yourself and your life to get into the state of congruency, but when you do, all the different areas of your life will fit together perfectly and mutually support each other. Your work will fit in with your own beliefs, your family and friends will fit together perfectly, your health and wealth will go hand in hand.


To some extent we are all living lives that are out of balance, so take the time today to think about your life – where are the fault lines? Where are the incongruencies? You may be a very lucky person and already have a well balanced life, but there is still room for improvement.

Then think about how you can rearrange things so that you can bring your life back into balance. What are the common themes and threads running through all areas that you can strengthen to make your life more congruent?
