Self-esteem feels like this elusive ‘thing’ we want, but aren’t really sure how to get it.
You know your self-esteem isn’t great. You can see how it’s holding you back in your life. But how do you change it? What are the actual steps you take on a daily basis to make it better?
You’re in the right place.
It will not surprise you that I approach this from a different angle than all the reading you’ll do online. There are some fantastic tools and blogs and suggestions you’ll find when you search this topic. But what stood out to me in all of those lists was that everything was surface level.
One thing I can tell you for sure is that your self-esteem is NOT surface level. It’s deep down inside of you.
Your self-esteem is a reflection of your deepest and innermost thoughts about yourself and WHO you really are.
It’s fantastic to practice positive affirmations and healthy self-talk. But if you want to get serious, you have to take action on a deeper level.
It doesn’t matter how many positive affirmations I do in the morning telling myself how awesome I am, if all of my actions throughout the day don’t support that statement.
I’m going to take you on this journey of understanding how every little thing you do throughout your day builds, or breaks, your self-esteem.
And I’m going to tell you how to fix it.

Loved it. I never thought about my self esteem, as my committee, wow. Eye opener. Thank you.
I love this episode. Angela, you have a way of telling me exactly what I need to hear when I need to hear it through your podcasts. The “committee” has been ruling my life for years due to the micro-decisions I have made.
You talked about following intuition. I have been realizing that by not trusting my intuition for most of my life, I didn’t trust my decisions which in turn became more troublesome and problematic. The more I didn’t believe in my decisions, the louder the “committee” became to the point that I felt completely out of touch with who I was. Like you said, I reached for things outside myself to find myself which led to unobtainable expectations – furthering the cycle of addiction and depression.
You made me realize that it is not only about the big choices that we have made in our lives; it is about how we show up each and everyday. I love your outlook. You are really helping me on this journey.
