It is not the mountain that we conquer, but ourselves. - Sir Edmund Hillary
Why do most of us find it hard to put ourselves on the line? Usually because we're frightened of showing ourselves up. Overcoming these fears takes a rewriting of your self-talk and questioning your beliefs. With high self-esteem we don't worry about making fools of ourselves in front of others because we know that this is not a disaster.
So what if you don't succeed first time? The obstacles don't grow any bigger, but you do! With a positive self-image you can fail completely and still feel good about yourself.
1. Because I'm OK I can make mistakes. I can fail and still feel good about myself. 2. I am enthusiastic about life and filled with energy and purpose.
