Overview

There are four foundation concepts of self-esteem; that is, there are four aspects or qualities that contribute to its formation. I call them "Powers." In this case, each one adds to your total personal power.

I devised a test to measure your strengths and weaknesses in each of the four powers. You score yourself and use the scores to understand where you shine and where you don't.

Self-esteem is an epiphenomenon. What? It evolves from zillions of little experiences that make it up. I describe the process and how our self-images emerge. Self-esteem emerges in different ways at different times in our lives, and it manifests differently in different areas. You have to understand the process before the concept makes sense. You can't change self-esteem if you don't understand this.

The next section deals with the one concept and technique that makes the biggest and fastest changes to self-esteem. There are lots of techniques in the literature, but this one idea stands out and isn't presented elsewhere. I developed it over twenty years.

Then I write about resistance. There's always a bunch of "excuses" for not doing the work and I name them. There's a reason they are there and until you understand how and why they got there, your self-image won't change.

I write about what therapy is vs. what ebooks can do. My goal is to provide as much information as possible to fix a crummy self-image without going to a therapist. You'll be surprised how much you can do ... If you think "nothing will work," think again.

Next comes a discussion about some preventative strategies and the one technique that best immunizes against future "dings" to self-image problems.

Clients are very enthusiastic about this ebook, probably because everyone can use some work on self-esteem. This ebook has no fat. Its all laid out in everyday language, just like what you're reading now. Nobody has published what I present as the glue that makes these concepts work. I think this is why my ebook does a better job. It's process, not content driven. The theory I espouse is different from standard "behavior change" books. It works better. I know, because I've been using it with clients for years.

Now, you can do this yourself. I've put together a hard hitting, direct "How To" manual. My research has not turned up another ebook that does what mine does.
