It is quite common for people to equate self-confidence as being the same thing as self-esteem. However, these are actually two different concepts.
Self-esteem represents the overall value and positive regard that we place upon ourselves, whereas self-confidence is
more representative of how competent we feel in our abilities to carry out a specific task.
In this respect, self-confidence can be seen has having many different facets and they might
vary in how we feel about them. By this I mean, that whereas I personally feel confident
enough to pick up my guitar and sing to a room full of people, I do not feel confident enough
to be the first person on the dance floor at a party!! So, in essence, we can be confident at
some things, and not so confident at others!!
Self-esteem is extremely important because it is at the very core of who we are, and
undoubtedly it links strongly with self-confidence in that a person with no self-esteem is
likely to feel that they are no good at anything!!
Also though, a person with high self-esteem will actually be more accepting of the fact that
they are not as good at some tasks as others!!
Strangely enough, although these are the actions of what might be considered a ‘confident’
person, they are in fact the signals given off by a person with low self-esteem.
If you have issues regarding either self-confidence or self-esteem then I can teach you some
very powerful techniques using hypnosis and NLP that will help you love yourself, be good to
yourself and positively accept who you are.
