Self Esteem is often seen as a key factor towards professional success by most executives.

Psychologists use the term self esteem to sum up a person's internal overall self-worth. It is a gauge of how much we value and appreciate our selves. This core measure plays a huge factor towards our level of motivation and success. People with lower levels of self esteem will often be intimidated and under the notion that they have zero chance of success, so why even make an attempt. Self esteem has its roots in genetics. Many times, family members will present with near values of self. High levels of self esteem are exhibited by people who have a sense of confidence and a positive outlook.

It is very difficult to teach or instill a sense of self respect to others, but there are many things adults can do to promote positive self esteem in children. This starts by encouraging children to learn about the environment around them. The more information we understand, they less doubt we have about things. Adults should learn to consistently praise children when they do something significant. Over praise can be harmful, but when the timing is right it can really help build kids up. Above all being a reliable and consistent role model for children is above all the most important.
