Self Esteem– Accomplishment of personal goals always adds to your self-esteem. If you look back over your life to the times when you felt most confident, you’ll find that they often followed the accomplishment of important goals. Although external achievements can never be the sole basis of a sense of self-worth, they certainly contribute to how you feel about yourself.
Beyond the important goal of overcoming phobias and panic, however, are all the other goals you might have in your life. Your sense of self-esteem depends on the feeling that you’re making progress toward all of your goals. If you feel “stuck” and unable to move toward something important that you want, you may begin to doubt yourself and feel somewhat diminished.
In the Self Esteem Exercises section, you will find an exercise that will help you find your biggest accomplishments in life and what you would still like to achieve.
