Self-Esteem

“My self-esteem profits when I profit from my mistakes.” Larsen & Hegarty.[1]

This is a quote for July 16th in the daily meditations, Believing in Myself. It was on the same page with the quote, “A stumble may prevent a fall.” -Thomas Fuller. How many of us have soul-searched after we’ve made a mistake, to realize that we’ve learned an important lesson from the mistake?  And with even further reflection we realize that because we have learned from the mistake, we have actually prevented further damage. The authors say, “Pratfalls aren’t fun,… [however] Self-respect can be salvaged if we use our slipups to help us become more aware.”

Raising our awareness is one of the goals of Celestial Psychology®. When we are aware of our thoughts, actions, and emotions our self-esteem soars. Affirming, “I learn from my mistakes” will free our minds from the ravages of self-recrimination and allow us to creatively profit from them.
