Self-esteem is an individual’s subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself (for example, « I am unloved », « I am worthy ») as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. Smith and Mackie (2007) defined it by saying « The self-concept is what we think about the self; self-esteem, is the positive or negative evaluations of the self, as in how we feel about it.
The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgment, ability, power, etc. One’s self confidence increases from experiences of having satisfactorily completed particular activities. It is a positive belief that in the future one can generally accomplish what one wishes to do.
Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal, which one meta-analysis suggested is similar to generalization of self-efficacy. Abraham Maslow and many others after him have emphasized the need to distinguish between self-confidence as a generalized personality characteristic, and self-confidence with respect to a specific task, ability or challenge (i.e. self-efficacy).
Concept of two words looks similar. But, there is slight difference between both of words. the former means emotional thing and the latter means more like ability things. so, how meditation can help people to have great self-esteem and self-confidence?
