Author Zen Benefiel will be our guest today as we are starting our series on self-esteem. Zen is the author of Transformation: A Guide For Change. He says, "Self-esteem is ignited through personal transformation, learning how to rise above the challenges we face in life through compassion, style and grace." Having a high self-esteem is essential to anyone’s growth and development and thus critical in making sure our children internalize this characteristic and important need. Having low self-esteem, opens the doors to untold dark possibilities as those possibilities match how you feel. It’s the Law of Attraction in action. Often when you hear people talk about self-esteem, you hear simply that it means “how you feel.” This by itself is so misleading, for you can feel good by taking drugs or by having the adrenaline rush of robbing a bank. You can also feel good by listening to some surreptitious gossip, being involved in a drive-by shooting, or just watching a thrilling horror movie. Your success or your failure in life is directly tied to your level of self-esteem.
