You Are Here to Grow.

“Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment. ― Thomas Carlyle. 

As you all know, I am not a religious person. My friend jumped on the other day and said self-worth is Christ or God. That's not true. If it was no one would have self-worth, self-esteem, or self-confidence issues. People do. More so, religious people do. So, there is more to it than mere religion.

Self-esteem is one of the four (4) determinants of the disposition of a person to function. The other three are a person's Locus of Control, Self-efficacy (brother to Self-confidence), and Neurotic tendency. No one is born with the right setting for any of this.

Each person's setting on all four (4) is a result, not an accident. It is nurture, not nature. And, one of the chief determinants of this conditioning is life accomplishment or growth. Obviously, growth and or accomplishment moves one towards the right setting on these spectrums.

We were each created for growth, for accomplishment, for leaving our positive mark on this side of eternity. Spirituality obviously helps. Religiosity is more of a limitation than an enabler. The more huddles a person is able to cross the more the scales shift to the positive on the disposition spectrums.

The Saint.
