You Are Here to Grow.

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

Like 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 will 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 people to function. The other three being 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 determinant of this conditioning is life accomplishment or growth. Obviously, growth and or accomplishment moves one towards a 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.
