"Self-esteem is a reflection of your opinion of yourself. When you have healthy self-esteem, you feel good about yourself and see yourself as deserving of good health. When you have low self-esteem, you put little value on your health and therefore on your habits. Most health problems can be prevented and reversed if we were willing to change our lifestyles. At first blush, one would think that everyone would change if change brought with it life. However, I have found the opposite to be true. It has often cause me much anguish until I realized that we must have self love which is built on self esteem to able to forego short term pleasure for long term gain."

The Realest Idealist believes in a society that spiritually empowers each other to enlighten the world! Do you? Being inspired from a life-changing awakening experience, Curtis aka The Realest Idealist vowed to himself that he would help the world know their true, infinite power from within…and that’s when he remembered.

Having this knowledge has given me the advantage to not fear people or situations, because I know my own abilities and self-worth and will not let anyone else destroy what is the core of my soul. We all have someone to thank for who we have become. I thank my Mom and all of the strong women I have in my life and wish to pass along this knowledge, because this is not a secret to be held but one to be shared with others.

Dr. Antoine Chevalier - Website
Many people suffer from feelings of inadequacy, insecurity, self-doubt, guilt and fear of fully participating in life with a vague sense of “I am not enough” in his book "Hidden powers of creation" and that one of the most significant characteristics of healthy self-esteem is that it is the state of one who is not at war either with himself or with others. Having healthy self-esteem then fully supports the complete elimination of violence and war globally, thereby supporting that healthy self esteem can in fact increase global happiness and peace.

Self esteem is like the foundation of your home. All that you believe, and can accomplish are built upon it. With self esteem, one is not mired in the opinions of others, but finds the courage to act out of one's own convictions. Self esteem supports one in establishing a steady and stable base of healthy self love, out of which one is able to reach out with love toward others.
