In the Six Pillars of Self-Esteem, Nathaniel Branden expertly explains what is self-esteem, what it is not, why we need it, and how we can get more of it.
He also writes particularly about why and how the concept has been so misunderstood and the many myths surrounding what it really is, and how true self-esteem is so vital to modern day existence. The book is so much more than simple platitudes or affirmations intended to “fire you up” or “get you thinking positive.” He sets forth in the book tools and concepts for a true foundation on which to build a happier, more fulfilled life.
The whole book blew my mind from the beginning to the end. It is filled with PROFOUND insights and simple, reasoned-out truths and concepts that I am able to easily integrate into my daily conscious living especially because he includes many simple exercises in the book for this type of practical integration and application.
I’ve actually included one of his ten-minute consciousness exercises into my daily routine that I’ll be doing for probably at least a year. And I don’t just include stuff in my schedule lightly.
For a new perspective on yourself and what you might be hiding from yourself without even realizing it, pick this one up ASAP.
It is ridiculously enlightening.
