The Most Precious Gift We Can Give

The Most Precious Gift We Can Give

If you could leave your child with only one gift, what would you leave? Would you choose money, possessions, health, fitness, friends, a house … or would it be better to ensure they had healthy self esteem and a belief in themselves … so they could get these things for themselves?

Every time I would choose to leave them with healthy self esteem. It will get them further in life and avoid more hassles than any other gift I could give them.

Self esteem is how you perceive yourself and your abilities. Did you notice it was your perception and not the reality that mattered? A person with mediocre abilities and healthy self esteem will go further and achieve more with a greater degree of happiness than a very talented individual with low self esteem.

I am constantly fascinated by the fact that it isn’t reality that holds us back, so much as our perception of reality.
