Anything you believe to be true will be your reality. The quality and quantity of your life is based upon the quality and quantity of your thoughts. Since our subconscious mind takes orders based on what our conscious mind believes to be true, we need to control our thoughts and our beliefs to assure they are constructive and self-directed. Your subconscious cannot tell the difference between an actual event and thinking something over and over in your mind. Therefore, worrying is actually negative goal setting. According to Dr. Murphy, "Every thought is a cause, and every condition is an effect." All our experiences, actions and conditions are a result of our reactions to our thoughts.
The way you think is the way you perform! High performing people have a high opinion of themselves. Low performing people have a low opinion of themselves. How you feel about yourself is called self-esteem. When you feel good about yourself, or have a high self-esteem, you are not threatened by others and it is easy for you to overcome challenges.
People with low self-esteem are likely to be highly influenced by their environment. If their environment is perceived as favorable, their level of esteem rises. If their immediate environment is perceived as unfavorable, self-esteem is deflated.
People with high self-esteem feel they can master their environment and stabilize their self-esteem, even when they receive negative feedback.
It is possible to have high self-esteem in one area and low self-esteem in another area. How we see ourselves is influenced by our conditioning, a process of developing assumptions and beliefs about the world. Our beliefs control the way we live our lives and how we understand the world.
