If you want to know how to develop self esteem then – according to the company She Means Business – doing exactly what is described below could be the best thing to do.
And by that, I mean starting your own business.
And the company is producing a documentary about female entrepreneurs.
Side Note According to my dictionary, an entrepreneur is:- A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on financial risk to do so.
She Means Business is currently taking auditions from women entrepreneurs via their website at www.SheMeansBusiness.org (see picture below)
Judy Robinett, a start-up consultant to new businesses who is chief adviser for the project, says that she believes that women think they need to have a good level of self esteem before launching a successful business.
This isn’t so, we are told.
Apparently we can actually develop our self esteem as we go along by:-
- Failing and
- Doing again
Although – to be honest – I don’t really believe that.
There is a step missing in this threesome, because, as far as I am concerned, developing self esteem comes from these four steps:-
- Learning from the mistakes which actually caused the failing, and
- Doing it all again – but this time with an adapted plan of action which takes consideration of the lessons from step 3.
Having a good level of self esteem simply means that we feel good about ourselves, accepting ourselves as we are, but also being aware that we have more strengths within ourselves that we can access when and if we should choose to do so.
And accessing “more if these strengths within” is what I have been doing during the last couple of weeks.
I’ve Been Challenging Myself
Two weeks ago I started a Quick Start Challenge . In it I am purposely trying to get more things done instead of over-thinking about things before I even start.
And I have actually surprised myself with the results so much so that I realise once again that there is more in me than I was allowing myself to access….
And I would imagine….
…. No, that is not what I want to say -
I am sure there is more in you, as well, than you can imagine right now.
