Confidence & Esteem:
The word ‘Esteem’ is derived from the Latin aestimare, meaning ‘value’. To have self-esteem is to place a high value on our own worth. Our self-esteem is the lens through we which we see ourselves and everyone around us and determine how we feel, act and think of ourselves as well as, how we relate to others.
The word ‘Confidence’ comes from the Latin fidere, which means ‘to trust.’ To be self-confident is to trust in one’s ability or aptitude to engage successfully with others. A person with self-confidence can deal with difficult situations, welcome new challenges and opportunities, and take responsibility if things do not go to plan.
We rely on Courage to get us through situations where we do not yet have Confidence. Confidence operates in the realm of the known, whereas Courage operates in the realm of the unknown. Without Courage, someone would not do, or try, something they have not done before.
Many people find it easier to build their self-confidence than their self-esteem, by raking up a long list of achievements and qualifications. While people keep on working on their list in the hope that it might one day be long enough, they try to fill the emptiness inside them with possessions, titles, status, money, meaningless relationships etc. You only have to look to the Entertainment Industry to find examples of performers and celebrities, who can perform before thousands of people, win awards and appear to have the perfect life, but then kill themselves, because all the money and fame in the world does not make up for the fact that they do not feel "good enough"
Many people can benefit from an increase in self-esteem and a belief that “I am Enough” and "I am worthy". The world renowned psychologist and hypnotherapist, Marisa Peer, call this lack of self esteem "the biggest disease affecting humanity".
