You have to believe on the inside what you want to become on the outside – Creflo Dollar
Many people who struggle with low self-esteem have tried so hard to get a hold of their life in vain. they try this and then they do that, only to find that it didn’t work out the way they hoped it would.
I know, because I’ve been there. and not precisely as a young teenager. Even as a highly educated adult, I was a mistake waiting to happen in everything I endeavored. until I discovered the guaranteed winning formula: to quit trying for myself and surrendering to God instead. I received a powerful revelation: he is smarter than I am.
He taught me how precious I was to him and how much he valued my life and everything I did in it. I also realized that I had been trapped in a loser mentality for years.
Following are three classic self-esteem killers I discovered:
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. our society has erroneously taught us that mistakes are bad. In reality, they are most powerful learning tools. We learn a lot by making mistakes.
I recently heard a well-known and successful Internet Marketer say, the worst thing that can happen to you is to have success right away when you start out on a new business. now, that is an eye-opening statement
Do learn from your mistakes and then keep on going. Don’t throw in the towel. Successful people make a lot of mistakes. they learn from their mistakes and acquire valuable wisdom that way.
Don’t compare yourself to others. We sometimes have the tendency to think that others have everything figured out. that is not true. Everybody has his own share of worries and struggles. the difference only lies in how we view them. It is the same old glass half-full vs. glass half-empty mentality.
Do accept that you are special. You are unique and have exactly the same possibility to prosper in all areas of life as anybody else has. God has given you a unique combination of talents and gifts and has designed a tailor-made plan for you to walk in.
Don’t try to find your worthiness inside yourself and in what you could possibly achieve by your mere human efforts. Even the smartest human being can not do that. the Bible states that our human righteousness is like filthy rags to God.
But the good news is that he made us righteous, acceptable and worthy by sending his Son Jesus Christ.
Do find your true value in what Jesus did for you. he died so that your relationship to God could be restored. by walking with him you will find the fulfillment you have always wanted to have.
