You will never measure your success if you cannot manage your life. Setting goals is a part of life just as breathing is a part of living. Using your precious and finite moments to set and accomplish goals creates a momentum that will nourish your soul. Self-esteem comes with every goal you set. Accomplishing a goal is the small by-product of the effort. The real value to your self-esteem comes from the journey towards the goal. The journey is the magic. Set those goals, start your journey, chase that magic.
Prisoner No More
There is no magic way to earn self-esteem, and no person can just give it to you. There is only one true way to gain it: the old-fashioned way. You must set goals and accomplish those goals. You have had some life lessons due to unwise choices, accept the lessons learned, and resolve to make healthy choices in the only place you can choose to do so: the present moment. You only have the present moment, from moment to moment, in which to make change and decisions. You cannot change the past. You are not yet in the future. You have only this moment. When you meet new people, you will have only that present moment in time to present yourself. Your choices in language, speech, body language, tone of voice, dress, and facial expression will convey an image. That image will be interpreted as “you” by the new people meeting you for the first time. Choose wisely when you present yourself (your SELF) to the world. You have only the present moment, so use that precious moment in time well.
