Dr. Kristin Neff’s has a TED on self-compassion that has over 800k views. Kristin’s book is titled “Self Compassion”, The Proven Power of Being kind to yourself. You can find her at  What hooked us was her commentary on self-esteem. Zig Ziglar was the king of calling us to the necessity of a healthy self-image, but when Kristin divulged the research of how our culture has gone about achieving self-esteem at the sake of others and what it’s done to all of us, we were floored. Two big focal points you’ll get from this are in relation to, 1) how we tend to equate self-esteem with comparing to or being better than others, and 2) how our self-esteem is conditional. We have better self-esteem…if. This is an interview that will equip you to better address your own self-esteem in a healthy way and empower you to be and do what you need and want to do. Our point here is to bring you tools and resources to help you progress in your life, however, that looks for you. We want to eliminate the things that handicap and limit you. This issue today is huge. I watched Dr. Kristin Neff’s TED talk, then reviewed the book to pull out the big issues, and that is what Tom Ziglar and I discuss with her today.
