I was once a victim of low self-esteem, looking down on my self, believing that my friends are far better than me in academic with that, I hard the fear that I can not to achieve or do well in my academic, hoping on my friends to teach or direct me on what to do at any particular point.

That caused a lot of sets back in my studies especially in calculation courses because I was depending on friends to help me out. I end up having low grades every semester but at a time I set my mind down, I recalled, I asked myself a question ” when will I stop depending on people”? ” when will I have the ability to do things on my own without the help of people”? When will I build my self-esteem”? After all sets and down, I figure myself out, I began to do those calculation courses without the help of no friends. The only thing I did to myself was to be in the lecture hall, listing to the lecturer when lecturing and the daily practice of the courses.

Ever since I worked on my self-esteem believing I can do better than my friends, overcome the fear of believing in people. I ended up with a good grade in all the courses, my friends never saw my back again in academic. This is the power of building high self-esteem, power of self-respect and self-worth
