Self-esteem is a critical factor in your self-motivation. It contributes to your ability to work for success and reach your full potential. For example, if you believe that you are smart and capable, your actions and decisions reflect that self-belief.
However, if you have low-self esteem and don’t think that you’re capable of success, it can hold you back from even trying.
Having healthy self-esteem has a positive influence on other aspects of your personality. It can affect your mood, how you cope with challenges, and your relationships with other people.
