Content marketing

This is a form of marketing whereby valuable and relevant information (content) is created, shared and distributed online to a specific audience that starves or hungers for it—-all this being done for the content creator to derive profitable actions taken by this audience.

Why Valuable information?

Because people come online with a purpose: they have their wants/issues/questions/problems and they need immediate answers. Whatever information they stumble on, they see whether it answers their queries: if it does, then it is valuable.

A piece of information cannot be valuable if it is not relevant to their wants or desire! Any information (content shared online) found valuable by its consumers is a potential online income generator! So, the process of content (whichever format: text, image, audio, video) creation has to ideally aim at answering a question or solving a problem encountered by the audience

Title: Top Factors Influencing Self Esteem [Research Supported]

Another tip to discover why you have such a level of self-esteem! You may say, “What?” Here it is: factors influencing self-esteem. I put nicely, it would read “factors that might have influenced your self-esteem level”. In this post, Uncle Oscar walks you through the parental role on children’s self-esteem. If researchers agree that there is a relationship between support from others and self-worth range, it’s better to see our parents’ role in our (un)healthy self-esteem. Please, scroll down gradually until you finish reading to benefit fully from this post.

Human Support: a pillar to self-esteem development

There is a huge, rich, and informative texture about self-esteem influential factors. The most interesting quotes is that: “Basic human warmth, encouragement, respect, and support are necessary to the development or maintenance of self-esteem over the course of a lifetime.”

What’s been the role of your parents in such level of self-esteem of yours then? Their role can be tracked in their genes, support to you, observing your strength and weaknesses to address them, drawing ideal conduct standards for you, and others. Stay focus and read below!

Parental Factors influencing self-esteem

1. Genetics

The parents’ genes have influence on your self-care level. Studies have shown that that our parents’ genes are influential to our self-esteem on a rate between 30 and 40%

2. Birth Order

Since it was proved that direct or focused parental involvement occurs with firstborn or unique children, then situate yourself! Though we acknowledge that only quality “interaction/involvement” counts most, you might be struggling with your self-esteem burden due to your birth order. Who knows? maybe you received poor or no full parents’ involvement in their daily interactions with you.

3. Parental Support

The parents’ support, also known as parents’ involvement, has played a big role in our current self-worth ranges. For instance, various research findings proved that mothers’ support to their children has a strong relationship with those children “sense of worth.”

It was indicated that parents who spend enough or more time with children yielded opportunities for supportive engagement. On the contrary, parents’ indifference toward children or frequent (long) period absence resulted in children with lower levels of self-esteem.

4. Parental acceptance

This is a supplement to involvement. Involvement, yes…but what about its quality? This involvement, whether it is warm or no, appears to be a determinant a child’s self-esteem development.

For instance, parents’ willingness and commitment to see their child’s strengths and weaknesses, potentials and limitations helpful. Through these observations, they can lead that child to explore the world based on his/her specific abilities, preferences, competencies, fears, and interests. In this process, harsh, derogatory, defect-related name-calling, and love withdrawal can also determine that child’s self-esteem level.

5. Parenting Style

I cannot say much than quoting what research findings stipulate. Leary and MacDonald (2003: 413) said that there a tendency parents who are approving, nurturant, and responsive have children with higher self-esteem than others. If ever parents were willing to discuss or negotiate with you in cases they were not satisfied by your behavior….that helped in shaping your self-esteem now. If you beat you or violated your rights in some way, then you’re living the long run consequences of that in terms of your self-esteem.

6. Modelling

This another undeniable factor: parents’ live handling their own difficulties. When parents have challenges, they resolve them under a continuous scrutiny by their children. If parents performed poorly in front of children by handling conflicts, challenges, etc in a way that showed they lack self-esteem, it’s simple for a child to see that “In our family, it’s hard to get rid of this….even my dad or mommy was like me….so, there is no way to change this…” Who knows, perhaps your parents’ live model when they were facing challenges left you believe that there’s no way you can escaped from what your dad/mommy lived for years.

7. Parental clear standards of worthiness

Your parents’ expectations of you influenced highly the state of self-esteem in you now. Whether they set clear, high but achievable expectations or simply gave impossible or no standards of worthiness have left some mark on your self-worth range. The goals and standards parents set for a child lets the latter grasp desirable, good, or “worthy” behavior. He or she feels to abide to that. You understand then how parents’ failure to set consistently goals and standards is destructive to self-esteem.

As a bonus information, I would like to let know that there are four key sources of self-esteem: power, significance, virtue, and competence. But to kill two birds with one stone, these factors are presented to you paralleling sources of high versus low esteem. Below are concise explanation and comments on each pair:

a) Acceptance versus Rejection

A (young) adult who gets support from either parents or caregivers, siblings, peers, spouses or partners, buddies, co-workers or colleagues, etc feel accepted or “being valued.” Research has shown that this enhances self-esteem at a high level. On the contrary, in the relationships with the groups aforementioned leave a person with a feeling of ignored, devalued, used, mistreated, or abandoned, such feeling is destructive as it negatively affects self-esteem.

b) Virtue versus Guilt

To begin, virtue simply refers to “adherence to moral and ethical standards” (Mruk, 2010; Coopersmith’s, 1967). This means that on the top of code of conduct, out there are other values or standards of behavior that people follow to be seen as a “worthy person.” Guilt comes in as a person measures him-/her-self and finds she or he does not live up more than their personal standards. Feeling that you adhere to required standards of the “other worthy” persons lifts you while the conclusion that there are standards you don’t meet beyond your will tend to rise you against yourself.

c) Influence versus Powerlessness

Influence the ability to control or have some sort of power over environment (including other people). Living is a series of challenges and handling them successfully depends on of the influence one has to change their course of life. Managing or directing one’s environment means more like to have power over challenges of living. However, frequency and severity of failures engenders feelings of helplessness or incompetence: a conviction the sinks self-esteem.

d) Achievements versus Failures

Achievement here means any particular kind of success. As well-commented in the section about influence, if one achieves or succeeds in solving problem or deals successfully with a challenge, there is a rising point in their self-esteem. Failures are in some way thieves of self-esteem in that it engenders a feeling of helplessness which is followed by hopelessness.

A general remark is that none of the four is complement of its own. Staying with this apparatus of “basic sources of self-esteem” as a whole simply indicates that the four sources of self-esteem are complementary. Each of them is necessary, but not sufficient: accessing both of those four basic sources opens the door for self-esteem to occur.
