Self-Esteem & The Importance for Dignity

Self-Esteem:I Love Me

Self-Esteem is very important for your dignity in any occasion or situation. I am not a professional, or an expert about anyone other than the information I provide for myself. As an illustration, self-regard is a well known topic with several theories.  Of course, always consult a professional for any medical needs. On the contrary, my self-assurance has always been very high and this post is being shared with an intent to Inspire & Motivate.

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.”
― Harvey Fierstein

How To Build Self-Esteem?

SELF-ESTEEM AFFIRMATIONS

Affirmations Photo Credit

Self-Esteem is how you feel about yourself as a person. It can also be known as self-worth or pride you have in yourself. To put it differently, an example that may destroy your pride is: If you are on your job and a new clique of friends come along, now they are all up for a promotion and you are booted out of the equation. Or Not?

Most note worthy, another key point is that self-care is how confident you are in your own worth or abilities. On the positive side, how much self-respect do you have for yourself.

“In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.”
― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

  • How do you define confidence?
  • How do I improve my worth?
  • What is low self-esteem?

“That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretence. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.”
― Jim Morrison

How do you define self-improvement?

Self-Improvement

Self-Improvement

From a psychological perspective, self-satisfaction describes the comprehensive awareness of a person’s self-worth or personal value.

For students, the dictionary defines self-esteem as his or her own abilities to have feelings of satisfaction for himself or herself.

“Every woman that finally figured out her worth, has picked up her suitcases of pride and boarded a flight to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Affirmation Outlook: In general, the greatest benefit of Affirmations is to use them in the mornings. Although this maybe true, if you are not a morning person you are more than welcome to use them in the afternoon or in the evening hours of the day. Incorporate morning affirmations into your daily routines. We are aiming to remain positive throughout the entire day.

As a matter of fact, what is an affirmation?

To emphasize, they are statements designed to reinforce a positive change in people who desire it and yet can adapt in their environment. It should always be stated as if the desired outcome either has already occurred or is in the process of occurring, not as something that will come about in the future.

Second, Awesome travel quotes

The great adventure
There is so much to explore Photo Credit

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.

– Anais Nin

Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.

– Eudora Welty

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

– Mark Twain

Make voyages. Attempt them. There’s nothing else.

– Tennessee Williams

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Third, Adventure and life

Adventure & life

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

– Alan Cohen

Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.

– Mark Jenkins

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately.

– Henry David Thoreau

It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal.

  • – Robin S. Sharma

Fourth, Travel the world quotes

Travel the world
Are you ready to travel the world Photo Credit

To travel is to possess the world

– Elias Burton Holmes

Once the travel bug bites, there is no known antidote.

– Michael Palin

Your true traveller finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty – his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure.

– Aldous Huxley

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

– Maya Angelou

I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.

– Rosalia de Castro

Fifth, Travel experience quotes

Experienced Travelers

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

– Christopher McCandless

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

– Lin Yutang

You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!

– Dr. Seuss

Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.

– Mary Ritter Beard

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes ‘sight-seeing.’

– Daniel J. Boorstin

In Conclusion

Uniquely, there is great inspiration in wanting to experience the unusual, too live a life of the bold and yet be free to explore the world. Above all, it excites many of us to believe that we could one day travel the world. Although I am not currently committed to traveling, provided the opportunity this is an ultimate goal. With this intention, my greatest desires is to one day own a R.V. (recreational vehicle) to start my travels. Ocassionally, in the parking lot where I work I insert myself into the ones nearby through my imagination. For the most part, if you are currently traveling the world please be safe.

1-Daily Dose of Inspiration-Daily Quotes

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
