Welcome to my Self-Esteem wisdom for Personal Power Newsletter.
So folks, here is some wisdom from Brian Tracy on the Keys to Personal Power, enjoy!!
Did you know that self-esteem is the foundation of a positive self-concept?
High self-esteem and self-acceptance are critical elements in successful living and in sales. Think about it. Is your value of yourself hindering your success in life?
The Reactor Core of Your Personality
Your self-esteem is the most important part of your character. This is the emotional part of your self-concept. It is the “reactor core” of your inner power. It is the emotional component of your life. It is the most important single element determining your attitude and your personality. It is the key to your success in life.
The Definition of Self-Esteem
Your self-esteem is best defined as how much you like and love yourself. The more you like yourself, accept yourself and respect yourself as a valuable and worthwhile person, the higher your self-esteem is. The more that you feel that you are an excellent human being, the more positive and happy you are.
The Source of Self-Motivation
Your self-esteem determines your level of energy, enthusiasm, and self-motivation. Your level of self-esteem is the control valve on your performance and effectiveness. Your self-esteem is like the fuel in the first and second stages of a rocket blasting off from Cape Canaveral. People with high self-esteem do well at everything they attempt.
Who Do You Want to Be?
Your self-ideal can be defined as the person you want most to be, sometime in the future. Your self-ideal determines the direction of your life, of your growth and evolution as a person. Your self-image, on the other hand, determines the way you perform in the present. Your self-image is the way you are now, today, this moment. Your self-esteem is largely determined by the relationship between your self-image, how you are performing in your day-to-day activities, and your self-ideal, the way you would perform if you were the very best person you could be.
Strive For Congruency and Alignment
The more that your day-to-day activities are consistent with the person you want to become, the higher is your self-esteem. If your ideal is to be well-organized, calm, positive and working progressively toward the achievement of your goals, and in reality, you are behaving in a well-organized, calm, positive manner, working step-by-step toward your objectives, you will have a high, healthy level of self-esteem. You will like and respect yourself. You will feel calm and confident. You will feel happy, healthy and optimistic. You will be a high-performance personality.
Develop the Keys to Sales Success
Self-esteem is the foundation of a positive self-concept. High self-esteem and self-acceptance are the critical elements in sales success. The more you like and respect yourself, the better you perform at everything you do. Developing and maintaining high levels of self-esteem is the most important thing you can do, every day, in building yourself to the point where you are capable of achieving all your goals.
Self-Esteem Action Exercises for Personal Power
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.
First, repeat to yourself the words, “I love myself! I love myself!” again and again throughout the day. These powerful words make you feel happier and perform better.
Second, think continually about your successes, your high points, and your “wins.” The more you think about your best moments and experiences, the more you like and respect yourself and the better you do.
My “Positive Self Image, Self Esteem, and Confidence” subliminal audio is a very useful tool to use in becoming the person you would most like to be.
Release your mind power to see your self-image and self-esteem soar, so you can become all you want to be. Be enthusiastic, motivated, and feel fantastic. Great for overcoming depression. “I deserve the best. I am calm and secure. I am happy. I respect myself. I feel good about myself.”
Have an awesome August and start achieving those important goals!
Self-hypnosis for healing or auto-hypnosis is a form, a process, or the result of a self-induced hypnotic state. Frequently, self-hypnosis is used as a vehicle to enhance the efficacy of self-suggestion; and, in such cases, the subject “plays the dual role of suggester and suggested”. Wikipedia
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a mental state of increased awareness, suggestibility, and concentration. It can be used as a therapeutic tool for a number of conditions.
It is a highly safe technique that can bring increased self-esteem, confidence, assertiveness, relaxation, the list goes on. Self-hypnosis can be used during difficult times to help improve symptoms of many medical conditions for example, anxiety, pain, headaches and so on.
There are three types of hypnosis traditional hypnosis, Ericksonian hypnosis, and self-hypnosis. Each type of hypnosis varies from one another in terms of practice and use.
There are many ways to induce a hypnotic state, including:

What is self-hypnosis and how does it work?
See yourself through new lenses
Self-hypnosis involves becoming highly focused and absorbed in the experience while giving yourself positive suggestions about ways to reach your goals. Self-hypnosis is an individual practice, unlike when you are working with a therapist.30 Jun 2020
Get comfortable. Aim to wear clothing that helps you feel relaxed and at ease. Stiff, scratchy, tight, or heavy clothing might not promote relaxation.
Find the right spot. Settle yourself in a quiet room, where you won’t have to worry about anyone disturbing you. Silence your phone and sit anywhere comfortably, in a position that supports your back and won’t leave you feeling cramped.
Set your goal. What do you want to get out of self-hypnosis? Go into the exercise with a clear goal, whether that’s improving self-esteem, getting better sleep, or breaking a habit.
Focus your gaze. Find something simple within your line of sight to focus on, or create a point of focus by pushing a colored thumbtack into the wall or lighting a candle and focusing on the flame.
Begin breathing slowly and deeply. Inhale through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth, letting your eyes rest on your focus point. Continue breathing, imagining that with each exhale, your eyelids are becoming heavier. Keep going until they feel too heavy to keep open.
Continue to relax. With closed eyes, keep breathing slowly, concentrating on your breath to keep your thoughts from wandering. When your awareness drifts off course, return it to your breath. If any part of your body feels particularly tense, imagine each exhale carrying the tension away.
Visualize. Using your senses, create a peaceful mental “happy place.” You might surround yourself with clouds of relaxing colors or imagine yourself walking along the beach, sitting in a field of flowers, or biting into a juicy, delicious slice of melon.
Spend some time in your scene. As your visualization begins to soothe you, imagine your body becoming very heavy, just as it does when you’re about to fall asleep. If it helps, you can even imagine yourself sinking slightly into the chair or sofa.
Affirm your relaxed state. Try repeating a mantra, like “I am calm,” or “I am at peace.”
Move on to your goal. Once you feel completely calm, use visualization to focus on your goal. Don’t skimp on the detail — make your scene as vivid as possible. Trying to sleep better? Feel yourself tucked into bed with your soft sheets. Hear the hum of the fan as you breathe peacefully in the cool darkness and drift toward sleep.
Affirm your goal. As you imagine yourself achieving your goal, mentally repeat it, such as “I’m speaking confidently, without feeling nervous,” “I’m sleeping peacefully through the night,” or “I don’t want to smoke. I don’t crave a cigarette.” As you repeat these words, direct compassion and encouragement toward yourself.
Let your body return to normal. After 5 minutes or so, prepare to leave the hypnotic state. Imagine each inhale drawing energy from the world around you, and each exhale sending it flowing through your veins. Each breath leaves your limbs feeling lighter until they return to normal.
Wake yourself. Begin counting down from 10, telling yourself, “When I reach one, I will open my eyes, energized and alert.”

” Loneliness vs Solitude” came about, from asking my daughter what she thought is a pertinent topic, to which with no hesitation … she replied ‘Loneliness’. The isolation, quarantines, and lockdowns that we experienced as a collective, loneliness made itself felt to many of us. I truly wish you get to experience a shift into solitude and self-connection. Who knows some of us get to connect a few dots of our own? So I trust you’ll join those that get the insight that loneliness isn’t just what it appears to be, and so I share with you my views.
Here is the fabulous, astounding Michael Bernand Beckwith to set the mood !!
The more we relate to something, the easier It becomes to find the missing pieces
Loneliness has a lot of layers and depths, some very deeply rooted.
As we know… loneliness lives in every heart, we all experience it one way or another.
We feel alone for different reasons, we experience it differently too. At times not only can we relate to this we can sense it similarly too; Anguish, Torment does feel very, very real to us, myself included, however still is an illusion nonetheless.
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” Albert Einstein
Folks, I’m definitely not saying that we are all delusional, ok? Suppose everything has two sides to it. Negative and Positive, but why is it that the negatives seem to be the default and the positives may or may not even come to light, especially when needed most?
We stress and curse ourselves, our personal dialogue leaves a lot to wish for. We don’t respect ourselves, look for assurance elsewhere but within, and totally disregard nurturing the genius inside of us.
♥ Feeling alone does not mean being alone ♥
Emotionally speaking, in Loneliness, the mind talk is about sadness, hurt, and pain again and again, in Solitude even though you are still alone, you don’t feel alone, you’re with yourself; silencing the mind ‘chatter’ is so much easier than you think. “Mind chatter” negative thoughts inhibit our life experience. Hinders inner- peace, and our sense of belonging.
We each experience spells of loneliness and seriously it isn’t a bad thing. Loneliness holds the potential to teach us something, it is thanks to those shadow moments in life, we awake and connect to our inner selves.
We’re all navigating through life as best we know, so wake up, show up, and turn your experience into something constructive. By spending time in your own presence you learn a great deal. Being content in your skin, in your own company, is just the beginning.
When we plant the seed to harvest a relationship with the Self, we reap what we sow, isn’t it? A positive mind reaps more of the same so do negative ones.
When we connect, with who we truly are, authentically, with our thoughts and emotions, we get to know and understand ourselves and others on a different level and dept.
Our internal dialogue makes, breaks, or the least stagnates us or not at all, what you tell yourself is a choice you make.
“You behold your truth”
It is when we can’t see anything good in and about ourselves, that we know for sure that we must give it our full attention. No reason whatsoever can justify you seeing nothing good about yourself – if you go on living looking for proof that you are not good enough, trust me you find it all over and the same is true for the opposite so create the habit to look for confirmations that lift you instead.
Every program can have its settings changed to a different default.
When yours is set to see negative, then that is what you see, of course. The opposite is true too, when your radar is set to positive you will begin to find more positives about yourself too. When we focus on a negative trait, we become self-conscious of it even if we weren’t before. What we tell ourselves often enough, we believe and so we become. The effort of this exercise is the same for either choice, why not then, rather focus on what lifts, encourages, and motivates us? The habit makes it effortless.
The good news is that you can flip to the opposite side of your coin, any time and every time. You sure can fill up your emotional bank account by changing only the bad habit of not giving a dime about yourself.
No more guilty. No more getting in your own way
Generally speaking, the opinion we create about ourselves for example, and the ‘limiting beliefs’ we nurture within… are the main reason & excuse paradigm we often use to justify bad habits. They are also the very same ones that stagnate and limit us. Yes, or no? For the good of all, I wish that more of us could understand this in some way. This is the mindset of Loneliness.
What does then the other side of Loneliness … looks like? As in for the purpose of shifting from Loneliness to Solitude?
From goodbye Loneliness to Helloo Solitude
My Name is Genious, Nice to meet ME!
I JUST MADE A NEW FRIEND TODAY – ME!
To re-build the relationship between me and my inner self from a clean slate, I forgive and let go of…(you add what you choose to let go or add for the basis in the new agreement with yourself) and assure you will be careful with your new relationship to create and maintain great vibes!
Who would want a relationship that is demeaning, offensive, or oppressive? Why would you want to be a friend of yourself on those terms right? why would anyone else want to be your friend? See? Those are the facets of loneliness, your new relationship is one of solitude.
The difference between the two is that in loneliness the mind ‘talks’ to the emotions loudly, and seriously in all sorts of thoughts that lead to emotions that are the least desirable, but in Solitude, the mind is quiet, in this silence, you can listen to the Soul guiding you to joy.
From now on, you are kind to yourself just as you are to those you love… Treat yourself as you would your best friend, your soulmate is you.
I believe, appreciate and love Myself! – I am open, honest, authentic, generous, and speak from the heart to everyone but most importantly with me too. The universe is taking care of the rest.
Does solitude mean lonely?
Loneliness is marked by a sense of isolation. Solitude, on the other hand, is a state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness.01 Jul 2003
...But now in the Solitude of my journey, I set myself to explore the treasures of my soul – I gift I was unaware of but I’d always had inside of me
Why do people crave solitude?
It helps them enjoy the simplicity of life.
In solitude, it’s easier to welcome simplicity, and with a simple life, solitude comes naturally. The simpler your life is, the less stress you’re likely to have. And simplicity breeds the opportunity to evaluate your personal values, which are crucial to living mindfully.12 Aug 2021
It is when we become the friend that possesses all the great qualities ourselves, the qualities we seek others to see in us that we no longer feel alone. That’s one of many experiences of solitude. You are magnificent, you can spend time alone and feel we’ve had the best conversation ever, you can do the things you like to do by yourself because you know you are sufficient and know that the best you can have by your side is you! Because YOU’RE the best! Be your bestie, be your buddy, and be the best you can be with yourself at all times!
Have the Courage to Stand Alone (Find True Belonging) by Brené Brown is what loneliness to solitude looks like
6 Principles for Befriending Yourself: Matt Licata, Jeff Foster
Excerpt: “Here is a principle that has the potential to change your life, if you really take it in: ” TRUE HEALING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING RID OF “NEGATIVE” THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS. TRUE HEALING HAPPENS WHEN WE ACTUALLY STOP “TRYING” TO HEAL ALTOGETHER, LET GO OF “HEALING” AS A DESTINATION, AND SURRENDER TO THE PRESENT MOMENT OF LIFE, HOWEVER INTENSE OR UNCOMFORTABLE IT IS. THERE IS UNEXPECTED MEDICINE HIDDEN INSIDE THIS “ALCHEMICAL MIDDLE,” THE WISDOM OF YOUR OWN HEART, RELEASED WHEN YOU TURN BACK TOWARD YOURSELF IN A MOMENT WHEN YOU NEED YOURSELF MORE THAN EVER.”Jeff Foster and Matt Licatacontinue reading…
“It is love, of course, that guides the reorganization and it’s unfolding. But it is love, too, that is the substance of the ashes, and also the tears, the tears of grief and the tears of love. If the tears could speak, they may tell us that there is no medicine in a wound that is already healed, but only in one that is weeping.”Matt Licata PhD
Solitude is Desired, Loneliness is Unwanted. The links below couldn’t be better written and may enlighten those that care to understand, wish to find, or get in touch again and spark or start a relationship with themselves.
Is solitude a good or bad thing?
” Solitude is an essential component of your health and well-being. … Building more solitude into your daily life might reduce feelings of loneliness. Solitary skills take practice if you’re not used to being alone, but over time, you can grow more comfortable with being by yourself.
Give yourself time every day for self-reflection, and see how craving to be left alone (solitude), is not the same as feeling unwanted loneliness).
Keep these promises to yourself:
I promise to nurture, respect, and love the genius inside of me
I accept myself as I am, with my flaws and all.
I am not perfect and I should not be trying this hard to be, I understand and embrace my weaknesses
I regain my power, by being truthful to who I really am
I am my best friend therefore I treat myself as such because I treasure myself as I do those I love
I nurture a healthy relationship with myself
I have negative facets just as I have many positive ones, I accept that.
I am mentally and emotionally faithful to myself. I say yes, and can say No when yes or no it is.
I am valuable and deserving.
I won’t let myself down, (pay particular attention here)
Stay blessed, Stay put, in love, for love, with love & Sparkles for your amazingness!!
