It takes leaders to grow other leaders

Outside validation and confidence

Outside validation and confidence

If our self-esteem and/or belief in our selves are low we can do one of two basic things.

1/ We can build ourselves up and develop self-esteem and confidence

2/ We can attempt to tear others down through criticism, judgement or abuse so that, though we do not really feel better, we feel better than them for a moment.

Unfortunately the second route is not only destructive but also extremely temporary. The short-term ego hit we get from this criticism last less and less and we end up feeling worse about ourselves. The critical attitude and behaviour erodes our own self-esteem and leaves us feeling lower on the self-esteem scale than before.

The only sustainable action is to build our own self-esteem, own our self-worth and develop self-belief in ourselves.
