Can an excess of self-esteem be the worst obstacle?
both yes and no
Sometimes athletes have to check their egos at the door in order to achieve their potential
Maybe or maybe not? Who cares about the worst obstacle when we have an opportunity to care about the greatest achievements? In my opinion there is no such a thing of being the worst obstacle. Each obstacle that holds back in achieving goals is an obstacle that needs to be removed or cleared. So instead of rating the obstacles I rather concentrate on the strategy to get it out of the way.
I don't know.
I think that too much of anything can be an obstacle. Too much self esteem can turn into arrogance, or also be a coverup for lack of self esteem.
I think that the Ego is the biggest obstacle to people - and it's a tricky little bugger! It can turn even the most positive feeling actions into ones that feel not-so-good by manipulating limiting beliefs and fears.
In some people yes.
The excess is always an obstacle, coming from and absence of balance.
As already stated elsewhere in the interview, for me coaching is the "art to facilitate the development of the human potential, in order to reach significant goals". To succeed, it's necessary to make the coachee develop self-esteem and self confidence, balanced with openness to feedbacks and new points of view and with a good level of humility.
This question made me smile. Self-esteem in excess quantity can be an obstacle but not the worst obstacle for a client to have. Excess self-esteem can be channeled and become a great asset.
In our world it usually helps more than it hinders but we all need to learn humbleness.
Not the worst ; just one of.
If somebody has a high self-esteem, I think that is a great thing, because they can use that to hold themselves to a high standard. They will expect to be successful, so they are.
