If You Want to Get Ahead, Stop Focusing on Your Self-Esteem | Ep. 21 Your Weekly Juice

For years we thought that focusing on self-esteem was critical for ourselves and raising our children. While a healthy self-esteem is important to happiness, there is very little evidence that shows that pursuing self-esteem results in greater outcomes or helps you perform better. In this fascinating interview with Dr. Jennifer Crocker, Professor and Ohio Eminent Scholar in Social Psychology at Ohio State University, we talk about the problems that can arise with too much of a focus on self-esteem and what you can do instead to build real confidence without affecting your feelings of self-worth.

If you want to play a bigger game in your life, this is a must-watch interview!

Louisa, I continue to learn and grow when I listen to your podcasts, read your book, attend your workshops and best of all share a glass of wine and chat. I want to thank you for that gift.

Today’s podcast was so timely. I love the Eco system vs Ego system – such a vibrant metaphor. As I listened to the interview I was reminded many times of my mentor Jane Magruder Watkins telling me ‘this is not about you’ and when you are feeling an emotional reaction go to the balcony and say “isn’t that interesting! Be prepared to ask yourself – Why am I feeling this way? What is my underlying need? To be willing to open yourself up and have the courage and interest to respectfully engage with the person(s) to explore with a growth mindset (vs being vulnerable and avoid the conversation – fixed mindset) where they were challenged etc. Doing this does begin to form relationships which are so necessary today to help heal the differences that we are experiencing.

I did indeed get a boost. cheers, Mo
