Self-Esteem And The Law of Attraction
Suggest someone has issues with self-esteem and youíll often have an
argument on your hands. Thatís probably because people feel that problems with
their self-esteem are character flaws. But theyíre not. Self-esteem issues
come from our environment, usually our parents. And parents are only able to
give us what they themselves have to give. Let me explain with a personal
I began my exploration into self-discovery around a quest for riches. From a
young age I decided I wanted wealth. As I started on the road to business I was
fairly successful at earning money. But there was something wrong. I found that
I could earn money but I didnít seem to be able to hold on to it for long.
This problem led me to an investigation as to the reason. And before long I read
a book that said virtually all dysfunctional behavior revolved around a lack of
I remember to this day how angry I was reading that because a lack of
self-esteem was just something I did not relate to. I guess thatís because it
suggested Iíd perhaps done something wrong. But no matter where I turned
people in the know kept saying it. So I looked a little closer and was blown
away at what I learned.
Products Of Our Environment
We are all products of our environment. We take on the attitudes and
beliefs of those around us. For the most part that influence comes from our
parents. And I discovered something amazing that related directly to my
inability to hold on to money.
Both of my parents were born just as the not so great Depression was getting
underway. They were raised in an environment of lack. They were often told there
wasnít enough to go around and that Ďpeople like usí didnít have nice
things. And guess what? These were the impressions I picked from parents who had
no better advice to offer. In the early days of their marriage my parents
struggled. This was my immediate environment as a baby and young boy.
So when I went out on my own and began to earn money, I unconsciously maneuvered
myself into a position to let it get away from me. Why? Because thatís what
Iíd learned, that I wasnít supposed to have money. I just thought I was
experiencing bad luck but it was much more than that.
And since Iíd been conditioned from a very young age that there wasnít
enough and people like me didnít have nice things, I found a way to release
the money so as to maintain congruence with my Ďinternalí belief. Powerful
So what does this have to do with the law of attraction? Everything. The law
of attraction says that we attract our dominant thoughts and beliefs. And
whether we believe we are or arenít worthy, thatís what we get.
I have a close friend who was the second of two children. Her older sister was
three when she arrived on the scene. Life for the second child was a struggle.
She never seemed to be able to measure up to her older sister and was treated
almost like a second rate citizen rather than the second born.
This woman is pretty, smart, capable, and full of life. Sheís also full of
misery and despair. Why? Because since she arrived in the world she continually
found herself compared to her older sister who, according to mom and dad, was
prettier, smarter, and had better prospects for the future. Consequently, sister
number two developed an extreme feeling of not being worthy.
And the results she gets in life show it. She has no trouble getting close to
good things, but she has an enormous problem holding on to them. When I
suggested she had issues with self-esteem that revolved around her upbringing
she balked. But Iíve been gently trying to point out some of the similarities
I experienced in discovering my own self-esteem issues. And I think sheís
beginning to understand.
There is no shame in having flaws in self-esteem. In fact, repairing the
flaws comes first with awareness. From there itís a matter of understanding
and consciously eliminating the erroneous beliefs. There are NLP
and hypnosis strategies that can speed up the process dramatically.
Sometimes I wish I could shout about them from the mountaintops.
