Self Esteem in a Selfie World

Critical Acclaim

July 2021 | 264 pages | SAGE Response
Reboot, Reflect, Revive demonstrates compellingly why self-esteem is basic to psychological health, professional achievement, personal happiness and positive relationships. It delves in the world of doubts and finds solutions for those self-attacking thoughts which refrain you from forming a positive self-image. It tells you why you should not undermine your built-in skills.

Professionals with low self-esteem are stuck in the present and tend to forget their past achievements. Whereas people with high self-esteem will glide through a difficult situation with ease. Through personal stories, exclusive interviews with psychology experts and cutting-edge research, this book shares how our hypercompetitive society affects us and how we make the choice to rise above it and be aligned with our own selves.

Now more than ever, it’s time to reboot, reflect and revive our self-esteem to start living a life to our fullest potential.

How we estimate ourselves is in direct proportion to how successful we are in life. Often, we view ourselves as to how others perceive us. This limits our capabilities. Being positive in our ability to do what we want and achieve our goals is very important. This book aims to achieve that objective, and I consider it a must-read. I commend the writer on a well-written book.

This book addresses the dilemma of people who get easily trapped by weaving a net of untrue and un-useful conclusions. Written in a very easy-to-grasp style along with crystal clear relevant case stories, it triggers soul-searching experiences to feel stronger and melt away the self-imposed limitations. Very engaging and enlightening, author Shobha has done elaborative research and imparts practical ideas to live life with elegance and respect.
