Have you hijacked your deepest desires and dreams? Many of us interfere with our own personal success by selling ourselves short and behaving in ways that are self-deprecating or self-sabotaging. I am a self-esteem expert who knows why you may be your own worst enemy, and I LOVE to share practical tips for overcoming low-self esteem and aligning your thoughts about yourself with what God says about you in an effort to fulfill your noble purpose and enjoy greater success in all areas of your life. And, I speak from experience!

Listen to this short excerpt from a recent talk I gave to a small women’s group: Excerpt Training the Mind Because We Are What We Think
How do you feel about yourself most days? Do you feel confident, self-assured, empowered, and ready to tackle the world? Or do you feel less than, undeserving, ill-equipped, and insufficient? How we feel about ourselves plays a critical role in our overall success, and negative feelings can cause us to sell ourselves short and impede our ability to reach our highest potential.
Truth be told, negative feelings like these exist in the absence of self-confidence and can cause us to behave in ways that are self-deprecating or self-sabotaging. We say things or act in ways that suggest we are anything short of capable and effective, and we develop a tendency to:
- Quickly dismiss compliments
- Feel like we have nothing to contribute or offer
- Allow others to seize opportunities ahead of us
- Worry about what others will think of us
- Procrastinate as a result of fear of failure
These negative feelings are also often symptoms of low self-esteem and can vary from woman to woman in terms of degree. Some women have small battles with this, while others are consumed and incapacitated by this emotional state. And yet, low-self esteem just isn’t something we talk about in public. I don’t personally hear discussions that are designed to address this subject. Do you?
Let’s talk about why this subject is so important to the women in your organization.
