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
Addressing Dehydration
Dehydration does not only happen to athletes. Anyone can lose too many fluids. This can happen even while doing everyday tasks such as mowing the lawn or even playing on the beach. Signs of severe dehydration include nausea, inability to speak clearly, confusion and high body temperature. Keep your body fluids at a proper level. Drink enough fluids to make up what you lose before, during and after any activity where you sweat heavily.

Article
The Wisdom of a Spirituality-Based Science
During the last years of the Cold War, I had a front row seat as a senior systems designer in the defense industry to one of the most frightening times in the history of the world, and the thinking that led to it. During the last years of the most potentially lethal, yet undeclared, war in human history, the superpowers of the United States and the former Soviet Union did something that seems unthinkable to any rationally minded person today. They spent the time, energy, and human resources to develop and stockpile somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000nuclear weapons — a combined arsenal with the power to microwave the Earth, and everything on it, many times over.
