Whether in the past, present or future, self esteem issues will continue to be issues. Academic qualifications, money, fame or talent cannot eradicate this problem. There are two extremes of self esteem problems; the people are either hypoactive or hyperactive. I have met people that use aggression to cover up the weaknesses of self esteem issues; I have also met those that withdraw from people because of self induced incapability. Self esteem issues bury true talents; it also maims true relationships. It is the quickest avenue to missed opportunities. Lots of people that would have excelled in life, careers and callings have relegated themselves to the background because they couldn’t deal with this pest.
Self esteem problems are self image problems. Like the word goes, image is an isomer of imagination. Imaginations are pictorial; pictures are products of conceptions. The picture a man paints inside him is the life he lives outside him. Self image problems begin from childhood, and if parents are not sensitive to spot the issue in their children on time, they grow with it, live with it, and if care is not taken; die with it. There are lots of people that have died with the problems of self esteem; there are also people that self esteem issues have killed. When my daughter was 4, I discovered that issue in her; I responded immediately to deal with it because I know how much it stole from me; I also know how much damage it can inflict on someone if purposeful actions are not taken.
There are adults who can’t look straight into the eyes of people to make statements; they keep looking down even when they’re speaking to their subordinates. If some of these people don’t look down, they sometimes become aggressive. There are leaders who can’t stand to deliver lectures in conferences, in spite of their immense level of intelligence. I once mentored someone who was top personnel in the oil industry about the significance of having a good self esteem. Some of the questions he asked gave me insight into reiterating that a person can be educated but uninformed. In a nutshell, how can you deal with self esteem issues?
