Last week we investigated goal setting, how to overcome obstacles, and ways to manage stress. This week, we learn about the importance of self-esteem, self-acceptance, and the power of positive thinking. Our readings discuss self-esteem and how it relates to the self-talk you use internally and the confidence you have in yourself.
Reflect on the self-talk you use internally and how this impacts your confidence, attitude, and thinking habits.
