    One thought on “The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem”

    1. Great book and such a quick readOK NOTES- The higher our self esteem: the less we need to prove ourselves, we strive for higher goals, we are more ambitious.- The more inclined we are to treat others with respect.- The joy of life comes from being better than you were yesterday, delighting in the true joys of life, and not in comparison to others- The joy is being who you are and not in trying to be better than someone elseTHE SIX PILLARS1. The practice of living consciously- Being present- Livi [...]

    2. A life-saving and life-changing book! If you're a self-studier, read this book. It's as if you were sitting and talking to him. He gives very comprehensive lists, questions and exercises to practice! Live for yourself ! You will see the difference in yourself when you finish this book, it is the first step to changing your ideas about yourself, and how you treat others in kind and how they treat you!

    3. Amazing book, I listened thought the full audio version in one go. Material is very easy to understand and the part I liked the most was about taking responsibility for your life. Favorite quote: "No one is coming to rescue me. If I don't DO something, nothing is going to change."

    4. Very good--"The unexamined life is not worth living," said the wisest of men who called himself a fool and ignorant."A book on self-esteem?" you might jeer in a mix of derision, disbelief, and, perhaps, curiosity. "What, do you have, like, low self-esteem? Why do you need to read this stuff?"Everyone at some point undergoes tribulations, doubts, frustrations, and insecurities."Know thyself," said the same wise man.I'm in the process of facing my inner demons.Listening to the audio version of thi [...]

    5. Definitely the best book on self-esteem I've ever read, the author really knows his stuff. He asserts that self-esteem is a by-product of practicing the 6 pillars of self-esteem which are: The practice of living consciously, The practice of self-acceptance, The practice of self-responsibility, The practice of self-assertiveness, The practice of living purposefully and The practice of personal integrity. One of my favorite quotes from the book is this simple yet powerful gem "Self-esteem is an in [...]

    6. When I found out I was getting laid off from my job I was also going through some extremely challenging personal crap - as a result, I started having really low self-esteem and spent several months struggling with depression. This book is extremely helpful. It gives you practical tools to change the way you think so that you are not constantly blaming yourself for your problems/situation, but are able to strategically give yourself positive messages that are necessary for surviving the hard time [...]

    7. My son recommended then bought this book for me not two years ago. I was so impressed with its information and presentation, I took a part of it within me and moved forward from a pretty low plane. This book can save lives when the world crashes down. It can help the people who are already happy to reach even further potentials. This is a book of empowerment through the only person who can really influence who you are or where you are going; yourself. I felt so much better about myself after rea [...]

    8. خیلی ساده و روان مفهوم عزت نفس رو بیان کرده و مثال هایی از دنیای واقعی که نداشتن عزت نفس چه بلایی می تونه سر آدم بیاره رو توضیح داده مثلا یک چیزی که ممکنه عجیب بنظر برسه ولی خیلی از انسان ها درگیرش هستن اضطراب خوشبختی هست که وقتی انسان می خواد به یک موفقیتی برسه مثلا ترفیع شغلی ب [...]

    9. This is a truly life-changing book.Branden uses a type of logic that is intricate but anything but obfuscated: you are left with a sense of clarity.I should stress that this book is far from universally compatible with all beliefs. There is a distinct philosophically biased aspect to the concepts presented. But whatever your take on live, you'll have a hard time finding fault in the logic presented. Personally this book has made me think about how I want to live my life, and made me recognize an [...]

    10. I cannot speak highly enough of this book. I read it 8 years ago when my husband and I were on a trial separation, and it stood me back on my feet again. The main lesson (there are so many) seems to be: this is your life, live it deliberately. Every day, every action, every thought counts. He points out that most of us have 'okay' self-esteem, and many of us are even high achievers but will not necessarily enjoy our lives due to the averageness of our self-esteem. His plan for how to raise the b [...]

    11. Short and to the point. Branden argues that true change comes from within, by embracing deep inner values like honesty and integrity, and is not some "quick fix" you can apply from the outside-in. This view very much coincides with the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which is a more in-depth study on basically the same principles that Branden talks about.Additionally the views expressed by Branden align very nicely with the teachings of eastern spirituality (buddhism, taoism, and Tolle) in [...]

    12. Excellent book discussing the importance of:1. LIVING CONSCIOUSLY. This requires us to be fully in the present moment.2. ACCEPT YOURSELF. Yes, you have flaws and attributes. You also have the opportunity to enhance who you are, by accepting everything about yourself. In fact, it is the only sustainable way.3. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR EXPERIENCES. Only 10% of life is what happens. The remaining 90% is how how you respond to those happenings.4. ASSERT WHO YOU ARE. Honor what you think, feel, b [...]

    13. Great book on the topic of self-esteem. Branden did a good job in defining self-esteem as reality-based and self-practiced, as opposed to something that we should automatically have if we were treated the right way by others. He also broke down the concept into 6 components that we can work on: 1) living consciously, 2) self-acceptance, 3) self-responsibility, 4) self-assertiveness, 5) living purposefully, and 6) personal integrity. I particularly liked how he included his own mistakes as exampl [...]

    14. یه یحث کوچیکی بود بین من و یکی از دوستان که عزت نفس چیه و فرقش با اعتماد به نفس کجاست؟ تفاوت اشون با هم برام ملموس نبود. این کتاب رو بهم پیشنهاد داد و نسخه خودش رو قرض داد بهم. اولین بار هستش که کتابی توو زمینه روانشناسی کاربردی می خونم و به نظرم برچسب کاربردی واقعا مناسب اش بود. س [...]

    15. «عزت نفس یعنی اعتماد کردن به توانمندی ذهن و به توانایی خود در اندیشیدن.عزت نفس یعنی توانایی یاد گرفتن، انتخاب‌های درست، تصمیمات بجا و برخورد درست با تغییرات.»

    16. I surrender! After bogarting this book from the library for far too long, I submit - I cannot finish, I cannot! (I'm such a slave to finishing books I start it's like a character flaw). DNF 50%ish. This book never failed to put me to sleep when I tried to read it. If I looked at it sideways or flipped pages, I'd think, "Oh, that'll be interesting" (renew), but trying to read it caused snoring in record time. I'll remember this one for the Sisyphean effort I made and for the author's odd obsessio [...]

    17. An extremely important book, and written brilliantly, with an integrity so rare to be seen; 5 stars doesn't do this book justice. I promise you if you read this book AND DO THE EXERCISES, you are not going to regret it. Years of defences, years of pain, frustration, anxiety, depression, the unspoken everyday issues we have with dealing with others and being ourselves, these are the sorts of things this book addresses. Then, beyond that, it is about discovering what we can make of our lives we ca [...]

    18. A great book. Goes into what actually is self-esteem, and how to build self-esteem as well as maintain it.I like this book because it acknowledges the reality that self esteem is something that takes work to build and keep strong. Goes against the popular belief that everyone deserves self esteem, no matter how they live or choices they make. You can't just have self-esteem with no effort on your part. Additionally he discusses the importance of self-esteem at work, which is something which conn [...]

    19. I have read a fair bit on the subject of self-esteem and psychology and generally have found it to be useless in most cases. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you're great; write a list of things you're good at; say three positive things about yourself every day for a monthRight.This book is different. It focuses on taking control of yourself, living with integrity, self-awareness and responsibility. The six pillars result in self-respect as opposed to the shallow effects of telling yourself [...]

    20. I could've skipped every other book I've ever read about self improvement and self realization. This is where I should've started, but I saved it for last because I thought I had good self esteem. What I did not know was that my depression earlier this year was due to an incongruity between my actions and my beliefs- and their negative impact on my self esteem and sense of self worth. This book is by far the best I've read so far about understanding yourself. For me in particular, I learned that [...]

    21. About the book: The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem shows us that building confidence in ourselves is a just matter of taking a few simple steps. Healthy self-esteem is something we can achieve not just as individuals, but in our relationships and communities too.About the author: Nathaniel Branden is an American psychotherapist and writer. He has written numerous books on the topic of self-esteem, such as The Psychology of Self-Esteem, How to Raise Your Self-Esteem and The Power of Self-Esteem.My hi [...]

    22. This book had been recommended to me over and over as one of the best self-help books on the market.That being said, it did provide wonderful, concrete advice and insight into self-esteem and ways to improve it. It also includes the author's original form of (kind of) self-therapy, sentence completion exercises. He provides a comprehensive 31-week exercise program at the end of the book, which is extremely helpful for people looking for practical help in developing their self-esteem. Aside from [...]

    23. A very good self-help book. I did agree with many points and related to many different situations and examples. 4 stars because personally I found the parts about self-esteem in business and self-esteem in psychology experts a little boring. Also because sometimes there where repetitions which I also found boring. Otherwise it is a good book, eye-opening as to how important self-esteem is and the things that block the progress of building a strong inner foundation.

    24. This book is really about self-awareness. Self awareness, I believe, is what makes you successful in life. This book provides tools and practices you can use today to become more self-aware, the sentence completion exercises are something I was already familiar with but didn't take seriously until after reading this book.

    25. Principalement instructif et utile, changera probablement ma vie. Mais Branden est hyper prétentieux, se contredit parfois et défend des positions politiques douteuses, en plus de vouer une admiration gênante à l'"America". Libre à lui bien sûr, mais emmerdant pour certains lecteurs.

    26. It was a helpful and well-written book overall, but I found the repetition of some ideas annoying, especially in the second half of the book.

    27. Lots of practical advice to make a real change. Exercises are really straightforward but make big differences

    28. Fantastic read! The author has a deep knowledge of self esteem and a long passionate history of research. Well-researched and meticulous!
