building confidence one person at a time

I SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT IT IS FAR MORE BENEFICIAL AND FAR LESS COSTLY TO HELP A CHILD BUILD CONFIDENCE THAN TO FIX AN ADULT WHO HAS LITTLE OR NONE.  ~Brenda Silveira 2010

WHAT ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR?

*happiness?
*success?
*more time?
*more money?
*friends?
*PURPOSE?

  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS?
    HAVE YOU REACHED YOUR GOALS?
    OR..............
    ARE YOU STRUGGLING?

    We all want to find happiness and become successful in life, but many of us fail because we lack confidence and have little or no esteem.

    As children, we have dreams of becoming a doctor, lawyer, fireman or something else we believe is important.  Then we hear and see things that take away our dreams and make us feel inferior.  Do any of these statements sound familiar?

    "You're stupid." 
    "You can't do that."
    "You're a failure."
    "What a loser."

    Growing up, many of us have heard similar words spoken to us.  These are just some of the negative statements that tear down our confidence and create insecurities, continuing right into our teens and right up to our senior years.

    Where is the encouragement?  How often have you heard these statements?

    "Good job."
    "You tried your best."
    "You have talent."
    "You should be proud of yourself."

    We don't seem to hear as many of these positive statements and they are CRITICAL to becoming a confident adult with strong esteem.  Unfortunately many of us grew up in environments that were mostly negative which resulted in an adult who got stuck with their fears and insecurities, being unable to face any daily challenges effectively.


    GOOD NEWS!!

    We can all change!  Your past does not define who you are!  It doesn't matter what kind of environment you grew up in, how people have treated you, how old you are or how you are feeling right now.  You may be YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY but you can become YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND.  YOU are the ONLY one who can change your life and you can start TODAY!
    Negativity CAN be changed into positivity. However change is NOT easy, NOT quick and everyone won't have the same results in the same time period but if you can COMMIT to hard work and being patient, YOU WILL SUCCEED!

    How can you tell if your child has good esteem?

    There are some obvious signs, but many people don't really know what to look for or even understand what esteem is. If a parent has low esteem themselves, they might not realize it and think that their child is just fine.  Try one of the quizzes above and see how you rate.  If the experts say your esteem needs some work, you may need to work hard on building some so you can become a positive role model for your children!
