My friend and colleague, Dr. Joe Rubino, and I recently had a chat about how to positively impact your life.
We were talking about a universal truth that has recently been backed up by a scientific study! Dr. Joe Rubino is the world’s leading authority on elevating self-esteem and he claims that improving your self-esteem is the #1 Most Important ingredient for your success and happiness in life.
That’s a pretty bold statement, but when you think about it, having high self-esteem is extremely important for every aspect of your wellbeing, happiness, and success.
Dr. Joe’s extensive research shows that over 85% of us have some degree of self-esteem deficit. Yes, that’s pretty amazing. One of the reasons for this shocking number is that no one has ever taught us how to nurture and grow our self-esteem.

I was impressed to learn that his claims were recently supported by a scientific study:
Self-Confidence Good For Your Wallet
Published Date: May 19, 2007
NEW YORK: Self-confidence is not only good for your own self-esteem but can also boost your bank account, according to a US study. University of Florida researchers found people with high opinions of themselves as teenagers and young adults drew bigger salaries in middle age than others, earning up to $45,000 more a year. Management professor Timothy Judge who led the study said the gap was widest for those from privileged backgrounds.
“There are certainly significant advantages for children growing up with parents who are well-educated and work in professional occupations, but these advantages are especially profound when children are self-confident,” said Judge, whose study is to published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. “Positive self-concept seems to act like an accelerant – the fuel to the fire – that leads the advantaged in our society to do better.”
The study used data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth with a sample of 12,686 men and women who were aged between 14 and 22 when first interviewed in 1979. Participants were then interviewed every year until 1994 and then every two years after that. When they were aged between 37 to 45 in 2002 the income findings were collected. The study, which was controlled for race and gender, evaluated mid-life income by examining parents’ education and occupational prestige, as well as participants’ educational levels and grade averages.
Self-confidence was measured with a range of questions asking people to assess their own good qualities, the success they expected from their plans and how much of what happens led from their own doing. For every category, the study found that having high self-esteem made a difference although the gap was sharpest with children from more privileged backgrounds. For people who had a father who was an economist and mother who was a chemist, for example, those who were self-assured made $96,220 a year as opposed to $50,968 a year for those lacking in self-assurance, Judge said.
For those whose father was a roofer and mother was a waitress, high levels of self-confidence meant earning $58,117 a year compared with $51,359. Judge said the effects of self-esteem and socio-economic background on income were particularly timely with growing income disparity between the “haves” and “have-nots.” He said motivation may be one reason for self-esteem’s importance. “Research has shown that positive people who believe in themselves have more ambitious goals, so that even when they encounter adversity, they’re not as likely to internalize it,” he said. – Reuters
Pretty interesting, wouldn’t you agree? Increased income is just one result of possessing greater self-esteem.
