Following a controversial episode about the belief that self-esteem is a potent cognitive poison, Dr. Kashey now reveals the cure: respect. While self-esteem ties a person’s worth to the outcome of their actions, self-respect does not depend on outcomes or expectations set by oneself or others. Taking risks is an essential part of life; therefore, the chance of failure exists. How one responds to perceived failure does not always have to be negative and depressing. Self-esteem assumes the thought that a person is dumb if the outcome is dumb. Self-respect empowers us to evaluate performance exclusive of the entity. Dr. Kashey encourages us to discover the power of self-respect when analyzing our decisions and defining who we are.
Listen to Ep 72. ‘Self-Esteem Is A DISEASE And (Respect) Is THE (CURE)’ Now.
