New Brittle Self Esteem - Life Resource

  1. 1. Origins of Self Esteem <ul><li>Sourced from </li></ul><ul><li>copyright archive </li></ul><ul><li>at </li></ul><ul><li>Ian Lewis FRSA FInstLM </li></ul>
  2. 2. There are two self-esteems: true and brittle. True self-esteem is that which we feel from the deepest sense of our being. Brittle self-esteem is the case-hardened outside which develops when we depend on others for our esteem. There are two self-esteems…
  3. 3. Our confidence comes from our esteem <ul><li>Our confidence comes from our esteem. </li></ul><ul><li>If we depend on others for our confidence as in brittle self-esteem, our levels of creativity and self-activation remain low due to personal superficiality. When we have true self-esteem our confidence comes from our whole being and creativity comes with true passion and awareness. Awareness of what true success is to us, not to others, comes from this place of confidence and true self-esteem. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Pink's 3 Motivators + RSA C21st Enlightenment <ul><li>The feeling of the need to chase a materialistic existence and the emptiness of success is a major area in many motivation studies. I recall talking on this at a London event in 1996. It has now evolved into Pink's 3 Motivators: Autonomy, Mastery and Contribution, as well as the RSA C21st Enlightenment debate. </li></ul>
  5. 5. True self-esteem and deep self-confidence <ul><li>It is relevant to this discussion because, unless success is intended from within [true self-esteem and deep self-confidence], creativity, inspiration and worth will feel empty. There can be degrees of emptiness and their can be separated areas of fulfillment, both of which mean gaps in our feelings of fulfillment and inspiration. The effect is the constant 'do more' rather than 'do right' motivation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. First sort out your values…. <ul><li>First sort out your values which will form your beliefs and these will be the foundation upon which your esteem will build and from this your passion which will never fail, provided you keep an eye on your values. </li></ul>
