Six Pillars of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Brandan Book Review - January 2017

By Sue Chambers, Williams Lake, BC

This book is used to identify what the most important factors on which self-esteem depends. Reminding us that if self-esteem is the health of the mind then it is urgent that we learn the different aspects of it. This book reminds us that we are living in turbulent times and that this demands strong minds with a clear sense of identity, competence and worth, knowing that the stability we cannot find in the world we must create within ourselves.

The book basically consists of the answers to four questions: What is self-esteem? Why is self-esteem important? What can we do to raise the level of our self-esteem? What role do others play in influencing our self-esteem? Reading this book helps you realize that self-esteem is formed by both internal and external means. Internal meaning: things residing within ourselves--ideas or beliefs, or behaviors; and external meaning: factors in the environment - verbal or nonverbal messages or experiences from being with others, such as parents, teachers, partners and culture. Basically examining self-esteem from the inside and the outside.

How much do we as individuals contribute to our self-esteem and how much do other people contribute? We know that self-esteem affects every aspect of our lives and Branden's book focuses on taking action in our lives. Showing the different areas that we need to work on in order to increase our self-esteem. Teaching the practice of Living Consciously. The practice of Self-Acceptance. The practice of Self-Responsibility. The practice of Self-Assertiveness. The practice of Living Purposefully. The practice of Personal Integrity, as well as the philosophy of Self-Esteem.

This book also touches on how to nuture a child's self-esteem, as well as self-esteem in schools and the work place. This book shows that most people underestimate their power to change and grow, believing that the patterns of the past must be the patterns of tomorrow. They do not see the choices that exist, forgetting how much they can do to raise their own self-esteem and take responsibility for their own lives. It shows that we are not powerless and can change our own lives. It appears that low self-esteem is an epidemic and this book is ultimately a call to action.

It is sent out to all men and women who would like to participate actively in their own lives and see exactly what is possible and how to move past obstacles and live a happy, powerful, successful life. Excellent reading!

Wellness Tip
Dried fruit
Looking for a convenient way to eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day? Consider keeping dried fruit on hand for a quick and healthy snack. Our registered dietitian recommends dried figs, apricots, raisins, plums, blueberries, peaches, pears, or dates along with plenty of water. Dried fruit contains more nutrients and calories than an equal amount of whole fruit. A golf ball sized portion counts as 1 fruit serving. No washing, peeling, or slicing required!
