Even though you may not be paying for this e-course, it does not mean that the content or exercises contained within it are sub-standard. In fact, I've seen many a highly-priced course or workbook that wouldn't come close to offering you the quality of tools and techniques I have included here.
Why do I remind you about this at the beginning of each lesson?
Because I wish for you to extract maximum benefit. You never know when or where your next breakthrough moment will come ...

EMAIL LESSON 1: Finding Out More About Your Self Esteem
Hello again!
Welcome to your first lesson: Finding Out More About Your Self Esteem.
In this lesson you will:

Get an overview of what to expect from the entire course;

Learn some definitions of self esteem and high self esteem;

Describe your own self esteem;

Personalize your understanding of high self esteem;

Personalize your understanding of low self esteem;

Rate your own self esteem;

Reflect on your own rating; and

Learn about 'State Of Mind' and how it powerfully affects your self esteem.
In this lesson, you will be referring to your Workbook, Section 1.
Course Overview
This 21-day power-packed e-course has the capability to change your life, assuming that you have sufficient desire to do so and that you will take action on your own decisions.
Whilst this might seem challenging, or as if you'll suddenly need bucket-loads of courage, be assured that it is broken down into easy to complete steps. My aim is that it is only when you look back at the end of the course, that you will realize how far you have come.
You will receive 5 instructional emails, each one arriving every five days after this one. This is to give you time to complete the previous lesson, digest your thoughts and practice some new skills.
Each email lesson refers to a section of the workbook as follows:
Email Lesson 1 » » Workbook Section 1 Email Lesson 2 » » Workbook Section 2 Email Lesson 3 » » Workbook Section 3 Email Lesson 4 » » Workbook Section 4 Email Lesson 5 » » Workbook Section 5
Recommendation: Read the email first, then go to the relevant section of the workbook. You will certainly find it easier to have the workbook printed out and in front of you when you read the email lessons.
The emails contain directions to completing each section of the workbook. It is possible to complete the workbook without the emails, but our research has shown this carefully guided email coaching strategy, sustains far more effective results.
Having said all that, your first task is to print out and read through the workbook in its entirety. Make sure you read the introduction and 'The Three Golden Rules' thoroughly!
You only need to skim-read the rest to get a sense of the contents and the exciting developments ahead of you.
Ready?
WORKBOOK SECTION 1: Finding Out More About Your Self Esteem
Turn to Page 12 of your workbook and get ready to roll your sleeves up and begin.
How To Define YOUR Self Esteem (Workbook Page 12)
Read through the definitions of self esteem and high self esteem on Page 12.
Now it is time for you to better understand your definition. The only true expert on your self esteem is you!
So beginning on Page 13, take the time now to fill in your definitions of:

High self esteem

My self esteem

Low self esteem

High self esteem (your previous version now refined)
Tips
This is a process of self-discovery. When thinking about your self esteem, try to make this as descriptive as possible. You may find some quite enlightening results!
And don't be surprised if at first it seems hard to describe or put words to paper – this is not an 'ordinary' activity after all. Then again, 'ordinary' activities tend to produce ordinary results! So stick with it and you'll find the words will come.
And remember – this is reference material for you and you alone. It doesn't matter if it is simply a collection of thoughts and feelings – you are not writing an academic thesis or submitting a grammatically correct essay.
Here are some ideas to help trigger your thinking.
High self esteem.
The feeling I could do anything. Walking on clouds. Not caring what others think of me.
My self esteem.
I can't think clearly. I feel apathetic, feeling I won't achieve anything. The universe is against me. It comes and goes like the weather.
Low self esteem.
Being too self-conscious to take action. No confidence. Uses emotional outbursts as self defense.
High self esteem (expanded version, try to refine it).
Feeling good about my direction. Living with the emotional ups and downs of life. Being able to take action towards a positive future whenever I want to.
Getting on with life and not being 'at the mercy of other people's decisions' all the time.
Rating your self esteem (Workbook Page 15)
Now assign a number from 1-10 (yes, 10 is the 'best' score!) to your self esteem right now. Although this is an arbitrary number, it is extremely helpful in showing you just how dynamic and changing your self esteem can be. Learning what you can do to keep you hitting those 8's and 9's is vital!
Take some time to use the space to reflect on your self esteem rating.
What does this tell you about yourself?
This brief daily introspection is often quite enlightening as you can ask yourself silently what your current 'rating' is – your unconscious mind will quickly supply an intuitive answer. To find out more behind the rating, simply check into your intuition – it will often be quite obvious what is taking you up or down.
State of Mind (Workbook Page 17)
This is probably one of the more fundamental and profound ways to help you understand how your self esteem is set up.
First read through the introductory text on Page 17.
To help you complete the exercises on Page 18, here are some examples of thoughts, feelings and 'physiology'. Don't worry at this early stage what this 'means' – we'll simply use this information to help to gain control and boost your self esteem to even higher heights!
Thoughts:
Your typical thoughts are most easily accessed through your 'internal dialogue' or inner voice(s). Yes, yes, I can hear some of you thinking quietly to yourselves right now "But I don't have a voice in my head?".
Sometimes these thoughts are accessed as pictures in your head (the movies you make in your own mind), or just a sense of 'what you are thinking'.
Here are some examples (Please note: All the examples below are quite deliberately chosen to be negative):
"I'm not sure where I will find the money ...." "I can't seem to control these kids anymore ..."
"I'd really like to have a holiday ..." "I wonder if I am depressed ..." "I wonder what John/Jean thinks of me ...." "How will my exam/test/review go ..." "My life seems to be such a mess ..." "I'm going to get on top of all this one day ..." "If I have sex more often, I'll be loved more ..."
Feelings:
More widely thought of as 'emotions', feelings can start out by being described quite vaguely ("I'm depressed"). The more descriptive you are, the easier it is to track and understand your emotional states.
Here are some examples:
"I feel apathetic ..." "I'm upset ..." "I am de-motivated ..." "I feel unhappy ..." "I feel sadness ..." "I feel frustrated ..." "I feel annoyed ..."
Physiology:
Connected strongly with our feelings, your physiology is a more factual statement of what is happening with and within your body. It will be much easier to be more specific here.
Here are some examples:
"I am tired ..." "I have a backache ..." "My head is heavy ..." "My legs are agitated ..." "My energy seems low ..." "My shoulders are slumping ..." "My head droops ..." "I walk with a shuffle ..." "I have a heavy beating heart ..." "I am breathing shallowly ..."
Now it is your turn!
Take your time with Lesson 1, let it soak in, revisit it. That's why it will be another few days until you receive Lesson 2: Influencing Your Self Esteem where you will learn some more specific techniques for Boosting Your Self Esteem To New Heights!
All the best for your continuing journey!

Bedazzled: a Devilish Journey to Self Confidence

...Bedazzled: A Devilish Journey to Self Confidence Lovesick, desperate, eager to please, doormat, these are the first words that introduce the audience to the character of Elliot Richards in the movie Bedazzled. These descriptions are stuck to him as he arrives at his desk job in San Francisco. With a smile Elliot is gentlemanly enough to hold the door open for a lady, and when many other people then take advantage of his generosity, you can watch the smile melt from his face. Elliot Richards is a character that is lonely and unsatisfied with his life, and through a crazy journey of self-discovery, he becomes who he has always wanted to be. At the beginning of this journey, Elliot, a white male, seemingly in his late twenties to early thirties, is a nerdy adult. In the first scenes, he is wearing a fully buttoned up shirt with a tie underneath his sweater vest, all of which highlight the large glasses on his face. Elliot seems to hide behind his clothes and his glasses because he is not comfortable with himself. This is evident in the way he relates to his co-workers, he speaks like a middle school child in a work environment. His co-workers avoid him and make sly comments to demean our protagonist as if he would not understand, but because he works at the same level as them, Elliot is obviously a smart guy. Unfortunately, Elliot does not stand up for himself and just smiles and shrugs off their insulting behavior, eager to be accepted by them. One night after being blown......

How to Build Up Self-Confidence

...Undoubtedly, self-confidence plays such an important role in people’s life that someone with self-confidence is more likely to succeed even though confronting with a difficult situation while people feeling inferior to others can lose chances that they could have got. Then, many people would ask, how to build up self-confidence exactly? I should tell those people for certain that there is no absolute or exact solution to the problem of lacking self-confidence. For people who are unconfident have different reasons to feel inferior. Therefore the first thing is to figure out who you are and why you are not confident about yourself. For those who are born pessimistic, they should try to look at the good side and always give themselves optimistic hints like seeing the glass half full instead of half empty. For those who are experiencing defeat for the moment, it’s quite normal to doubt themselves and ask the question “Do I make the right choice at the beginning?” But the truth is, those obstacles are what you must learn to deal with on your road to success. So for now all you need is to get some rest and calm down to analyze how come the failure. With some adjustment, you’ll find your confidence and passion in your work soon. By saying rest, I mean traveling, reading a wonderful book, anything that suits you best. I used to be very unconfident. Throwing my mind back to my middle school time, I once was too afraid or say, too unconfident to stand in front of the class to answer......

Confidence

...Confidence Confidence is a condition of the mind, not an instinctive trait. Confidence is a feeling that makes you think that you are capable of doing something with ease and calmness. Self confidence is something that helps lead to accomplishments. It is the first step to achievement and success. Even if you have a lot of abilities and a lot of knowledge, if you do not have self-confidence you cannot be a success. But, on the contrary, even if you have only average abilities and knowledge, if you have an unfailingly true self-confidence, chances are that you will achieve what you want to. Sometimes a lack of self-confidence stems merely from a lack of experience. For example you may not feel so confident about taking the SAT test or acting in a stage play if you have never done it before. These feelings will change as you grow and experience more things in your life. Sometimes, however, a lack of self-confidence can stem from feelings of insecurity. Sometimes we have bad feelings about ourselves and we bury them deep inside. When we do this, we tend not to assert ourselves and take chances because we fear our "secrets" will be revealed. If your lack of self-confidence stems from bad feelings you harbor about yourself, you are also experiencing something perfectly normal and common. But it is a normal feeling that you can and should change. Those who are low in self confidence doubt their ability. Confidence plays a very important role in an individuals success be......

Confidence

...Confidence is the Key to Success Confidence. Some people are born with it, some have to work for it, and others do not know how to obtain it. It is something either one has or does not, but can always be accomplished over time. The question that many want answered it “what can I do to gain confidence?” I have learned that confidence is hard to achieve, but with friends, trust, and time it can be reached. The denotation of confidence is the “belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities.” Everybody is lacking confidence in something; not everyone is perfect. Whether it be giving a speech in front of the class, competing in a large competition, or accepting one’s appearance, people lack the confidence needed to enjoy life. Helen Keller said, “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” This quote is absolutely true because if one does not have confidence they can never achieve or go beyond what they want to do. Recently, I have struggled with confidence in one of the most important aspects of my life: volleyball. With schoolwork, I feel completely confident in my work, but with volleyball it is a different story. Lately, I have been displeased and uncomfortable with my performance, instead of the ease that I used to play with. After every mistake, I would get down on myself and not shake it off, like one should. It has been hard for me to find out how gain and reach confidence. Through several talks from......

Self Confidence

...English 100 3 December 2013 How to Develop Self Confidence Self-confidence is defined as “the feeling of trust in one’s ability, qualities and judgment. Self-confidence is a very important part of life. Low self-confidence can lead to paralyzing of the brain and the body. When you have low self-confidence it is harder for you to make decisions because you have a lack of trust in yourself. The lack of trust in yourself can lead to failures or inability to achieve success. When we have self-confidence we feel reassured that we are making the right decisions. When you increase your level of confidence you tend to increase your ability to succeed because you are more likely to try something then with low self-confidence. Also people with low self-confidence statistically have been shown to handle situations in a more positive way. Self-confidence has been strongly correlated with the ability to be happy. This is because having self-confidence means that you feel you are capable of doing great things and capable of using your judgment. The ability to build self-confidence can lead to you being happier but also being less anxious about situations. The following are steps to building self confidence. When you accomplish self confidence you believe in your ability to achieve goals and accept who you are. Prepare for the journey Surround yourself with positive influences such as friends and family.

Confidence

...Confidence is a key ingredient for a successful social life. I used to believe that the right amount of resources alone is enough to make a successful life. However how we utilize our resources requires confidence in ourselves and it can be the difference between a happy life and an irritated life. Being a shy person does not always attract a lot of attention and being left alone is not something most teenagers look forward to. I was not very confident in my school years and it didn’t help with my public self-presentation fright. My confidence never went up to achieve a popular social life. I decided to learn how to be confident after I became aware of the absence of social circle I saw around other kids my age. My mother enrolled me for a speech competition against my will. I was terrified with the idea of speaking in front of hundreds of other people. My father helped me write my speech. Ironically I was going to talk about confidence building. When the date of speech came nearer I panicked and kept forgetting my lines. My teacher guided me to practice before a mirror, it helped but not enough to calm my nerves. After days of practicing before my parents and the mirror I was still not ready. My thoughts were focused upon how my voice would tremble and I would lose feeling in my legs. It was not till I was on stage and I started speaking that I paid attention to what I was saying. I had given the preparation my best effort and if my voice is going to tremble it did not......

Build Self Confidence

...How to Build Self Confidence Recognize your insecurities. What does that voice in the back of your mind say? What makes you uncomfortable or ashamed of yourself? This could be anything from acne, to regrets, friends at school or a past traumatic or negative experience. Whatever is making you feel unworthy, ashamed, or inferior, identify it, give it a name, and write it down. You can also tear these written pieces to start feeling positive on those points. Bounce back from your mistakes. Remember that no one is perfect. Even the most confident people have insecurities. At some point in any of our lives, we may feel we lack something. That is reality. Learn that life is full of bumps down the road. And that often these insecure feelings come and go, depending on where we are, who we are with, the mood we are in, how we are feeling. In other words, they are not constant. Identify your successes. Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which you excel, then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission to take pride in them. Give yourself credit for your successes. Inferiority is a state of mind in which you've declared yourself a victim. Do not allow yourself to be victimized. Express yourself, whether it is through art, music, writing, etc. Find something you enjoy. Everyone is born with talents and strengths. Be Positive, even if you don't feel the same way. Avoid self-pity, or the pity and sympathy of others. Never allow others to make you feel......

...that I saw as horrid and imperfect. The words that came out of my own mothers mouth, “Mira esto que tienes aqui, necesitas perder de peso Kendra no te miras bien.” Whats those words meant, for those who don’t know Spanish, is, “Look at this you have here, you need to lose weight Kendra, you don’t look good.” My own mother was judging me. I was never the heaviest in my family. My brother, who was 15 at the time, weighed over 250 pounds; my father, 46, weighed about 210; my older sister, 20, weighed about 190. So you see, I wasn’t really overweight, just had body fat. Yet to my mother it was just, fat. As you know, or should know, many teens wake up and the first thing they think of is, “Oh my God, I can’t leave this room looking like this!” Self image is important to us, or so that’s what society wants us to think. We must always look our best. Well in my case I also thought this way, waking up extra early to pick out my outfit (somehow making different varieties of a blue and khaki pant with white shirt; our school dress code). Then of course my hair, it had to be extra perfect. I’d flat iron it for about twenty minutes max until I thought it was perfect, then all the other miscellaneous things that come along; shoe selection, make-up, a nice sweater (if needed), etc. Once I felt I looked at my prime, I’d walk out of my glorious room doors to trot down the stairs thinking and feeling as confident as ever. I compared my glorious trot to the cat walk I would see on television......

...be revisited while others await their release and freedom to be expressed. Man’s true voice, being one of the latter, bursts to be heard, screaming, shouting, pounding, just to be given one chance to prove itself and come to the world’s defense. But without confidence and an empowering spirit, this voice cannot be unlocked from man’s guarded heart and released to be heard by all. Without confidence, man will forever remain encased in his shell, bowing down to ignorance and relenting to injustice as he is forced to weed the unfortunate gardens of conformity. Just close your eyes and think. Think of all that you’ve seen go wrong in this world, all that has plagued your heart with dread and dismay, all that has got you thinking, dreaming, of one day turning a new leaf in a land where the trees are bare, mumbling the solemnest of hymns and withering away into the pits of darkness. We’ve all seen such a dreadful scenario, or at least heard of one. But what do we do about it? Do we let bygones be bygones? Or do we step out of the norm as fierce non-conformists, and work towards creating change in a world where most individuals are bystanders, devoid of confidence and strength to take action. We must choose between self and society. Let us consider the latter, the network that basically lays out the guidelines for living, attempting to rule our way of life, and formulate our way of thinking. But why must we assume that we as individuals are not as powerful and as competent......

Self Confidence

...easiest ways to tell how a person feels about himself/herself is to examine him/her walk. Is it slow? tired? painful? Or is it energetic and purposeful? People with confidence, walk quickly. They have places to go, people to see, and important work to do. Even if you aren’t in a hurry, you can increase your self confidence by putting some energy in your step. Walking 25% faster will make to you look and feel more important. GOOD POSTURE Similarly, the way a person carries himself/herself tells a story. People with slumped shoulders and tired movements display a lack of self confidence. They aren’t enthusiastic about what they’re doing and they don’t consider themselves important. By practicing good posture, you’ll automatically feel more confident. Stand up straight, keep your head up, and make eye contact. You’ll make a positive impression on others and instantly feel more alert and empowered. PERSONAL COMMERCIAL One of the best ways to build confidence is listening to a motivational speech. Unfortunately, opportunities to listen to a great speaker are few and far between. You can fill this need by creating a personal commercial. Write a 30-60 second speech that highlights your strengths and goals. Then recite it in front of the mirror aloud (or inside your head if you prefer) whenever you need a confidence boost. GRATITUDE When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you can’t have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The......

...What is confidence? How does one become confident? Will I ever be confident? Why am I not confident? All of these questions plus many more are asked all the time by people who do not think that they have confidence. When really in some way everybody has a little bit of confidence in them. To start, confidence is believing in your self in one way or another. Wether it is believing that you can complete a project given to you at work or even the smallest thing, it could be that you like your smile or your laugh, or even your hair. There are extremely confident people who will not care for what others say if they try to put them down and then there the confined people who will completely break down if someone puts them down. If you honestly do not think that you are confident in any ways at all there are eight ways you can become more confident. First you have to tap into the confidence that you were born with. It may sound crazy but we were all born confident. As we grow we learn something new daily and often have thoughts rolling through our minds constantly. Most of the thoughts that we have growing up can have a negative impact on us, you may think "Wow, she is so much prettier than I am." or you could think "Wow, I've never seen anybody as ugly as she is, I'm thankful that I was born to be pretty." Whatever the thought your confidence can be torn or grown. Try to silence all the thoughts about other people and think about yourself and everything good about you!......

...Ten Nonverbal Cues That Convey Confidence at Work Travis Bradberry Forbes You cannot avoid sending nonverbal messages to others; however, it is possible to train yourself to send the right ones. Here are ten nonverbal cues that convey confidence and credibility in the workplace. Good eye contact Eye contact is your primary tool for establishing nonverbal connections with others, says Darlene Price, author of Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results. “It communicates your level of involvement, interest and warmth. When speaking to others, ideally look directly into their eyes at least two to three seconds before looking away or moving to the next person. Merely glancing at someone for one second or less is known as eye dart and conveys insecurity, anxiety or evasion.” The next time you’re in a meeting or giving a speech, ask a friend to count how long you look at specific individuals and if you visually engage with everyone in the room. A confident handshake Communicating through touch is another important nonverbal behavior. “Always put your hand out to shake hands,” says Patti Wood, a body language expert and author of Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma. “A classic good handshake is one with full palm to palm contact.” In business, the handshake is often the only appropriate expression of touch so it’s critical to have a good one, Price adds. “A good handshake consists of a full and firm handclasp...

...can’t keep confidences. I would keep the confidence of my employers. Friends are important but your integrity is more important. Once you have been trusted and found to be trustworthy, you will be trusted with much more next time. When your superiors find out that someone tried to get something from you and you didn’t crack; their estimation of you climbs to a higher level. Your loyalty allows you to be entrusted with information and decision-making authority in your organization. Loyal people who can keep secrets become a hub within an organization. Perhaps more than anything else, the difference between keeping confidence and not keeping confidence is that those that are loyal become a hub in an organization, while those that aren’t loyal are avoided. A lack of loyalty shows self-serving characteristics that don’t help the organization and show that your loyalty is shown to be to yourself alone. Here are some of the things that one should consider when given the opportunity to keep confidences: 1. Stop asking others to keep secrets when you should keep them in the first place. If you have to say, “You can’t tell anyone about this” then it’s a good sign that you shouldn’t tell them that information in the first place. 2. Started saying “I trust your judgment with who should know this.” Instead of swearing people to secrecy. Over time you find who you can trust and who you can’t with confidences.......
