Your Self-Esteem and Your Business SuccessIs your self-esteem holding you back from success in your MLM or other Business Ventures? Having a healthy level of self-esteem is important for every person.

It helps you put things in proper perspective which in turn helps you get through life's challenges and achieve the things you set out to achieve. So, do you value yourself? Do you like who you are? You probably now have some idea what self-esteem is. But let's make it clearer still. The term self-esteem is often associated with self-confidence. But it is not quite that-although there is a co-relation. Self-confidence aids self-esteem. But self-esteem runs much deeper, it is more encompassing.

We can sum it up by saying that self-esteem is a combination of self-confidence and self-worth. It is the belief in one's abilities and importance; the conviction that one is competent to live and worthy of being here. In order words, just being highly competent alone is not enough to make you value yourself. Hard to imagine? I'll illustrate: if you can draw and paint like no other artist in the world, that will not affect the way you esteem yourself if what you really value is academic prowess.

Similarly, if you even excel in a particular aspect of academics, such success won't do your self-esteem much good if that isn't what you've always wanted to do. Thus, rising to the top of one's profession is unlikely to affect a person's sense of self-worth if they are not proud of that profession. It's clear now, isn't it? Self-esteem comes from a sense of personal efficacy and a sense of personal worth. Enough of definitions. How does this attribute help us in life, especially in our MLM or Online businesses? A person having a high self-esteem is usually able to focus on the positive aspects of things, rather than dwelling on negativity which often breeds frustration and hinders the attainment of business goals. No doubt there will be times in your business when things will not turn out the way you expected.

There will also be times when you will be stressed out and quitting seems the most reasonable thing to do. A high self-esteem will see you through such times. It helps an individual to separate the failure of a person's method and the failure of the person himself. The person who believes in themselves and their abilities will simply change the methods or approach, perhaps even hiring some other set of workers and trying again. The thing is that as long as you believe you have what it takes to succeed in your business, if you hang on long enough, you will succeed!

Self-esteem helps your business in still other ways. It helps you to take calculated, creative risks and propels you to push through with your decisions, because you believe you are capable. In turn, this positive mentality attracts willing customers and the right type of staff. The thing is that in the business world, especially today's highly competitive business environment, the average client prefers to deal with the business person who exudes some measure of self-belief. Ask yourself, would you hire a lawyer or marketer who does not believe in themselves or their abilities? Hardly! It is also true in other professions too. A high self-esteem will help you to deal more confidently with clients. It will surely manifest in your communication, interpersonal, and presentation skills, all of which will help to attract new clients and business deals.

We can go on and on. But suffice it to say that as a business person or an entrepreneur, a healthy self-esteem is a valuable asset that you should try to cultivate. If you lack it, people will have doubts in your abilities. But if you have it, it often attracts people to you and your business.
