   6.     I can handle anything that is thrown at me.
   7.     I have a “can do” attitude

   20.  I appreciate my sense of humor 
   21.  I’m a helper

   27.  I’m conscientious
   28.  I’m proud of my work ethic
   29.  I’m ethical
   30.  I’m a good mentor

My weaknesses:
   1.     I’m overweight; I need to lose weight.
   2.     I’m tired a lot; I need to be more physically active.
   3.     I’m shy; I need to overcome my public speaking anxieties.
   4.     I sometimes care too much, I can be over-controlling.
   5.     I’m an overachiever; I lack balance at times.

I had more difficulty listing weaknesses than I did in listing my strengths. I do not believe I am narcissistic because I care a lot about others but I do truly believe in my core that I can take care of myself, I love myself and I love my life. Because I have self-love, I am better able to serve others. Yes, of course I have faults but I am always trying to learn from my mistakes and as I get older I am learning how to be true to my purpose. I am proud of my accomplishments and I am happy to be physically part of the world.

All of what I listed, I want you to be able to list plus many more of the positives. You, my friend, are priceless and I’m hopeful you realize this!

Good self-esteem will enable you to move forward in your life by leaps and bounds!

Do you have good self-esteem? If so, what do you think was a big contribution to you developing your self-esteem? Do you think our thoughts make a difference? Give me some feedback, I’m curious.
