Belief In God
Belief in God or a Higher Power
I have always been amazed at how some people allow themselves to be offended by others belief. The whole Christmas issue floors me. If you’re offended by somebody else’s belief, you need to strengthen your own.
Today’s article is going to be a spiritual one. I will refer to God as a loving Heavenly Father because that’s how I see him. However, if you don’t believe in God, where I reference God, put in your Higher Power.
There are three components that make up a person’s self-esteem.
- Belief in self. – The first component for a higher self-esteem is your own thoughts and feelings about your self.
- Interpretation – Your interpretation of what you think others think about you. We assume and create stories in our mind about what others think about us, when frankly they are worried about the same thing. Those that you worry about what they think about you, that person is worried about what you think about them. (Confusing I know)
- Belief in Heavenly Father (Higher Power) – The third component that forms our self-esteem is our belief in God and what he thinks.
If you have a high self-esteem, then you are probably pretty comfortable in each of these areas or at least strong in a couple of them. However, as you go throughout life, you may experience some low times, stop and be aware of your thoughts. What thoughts are going on in your head? What area above is being attacked mentally?
When you can identify the component that needs to be strengthened, you can pull out of your slump much quicker.
While I’m building the Complete Self-Esteem Course, you can get it for an introductory price.
You’re amazing, believe it.
