I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Did you put a deposit in your emotional bank account today?

on June 17, 2013

piggy bankWhen we put money in our bank account, it increases and we feel secure and confident that our finances are healthy.  When we take money out of our bank account, it decreases and we feel insecure and lack confidence because our finances are not healthy.

The same goes for our emotional bank account.  When we deposit healthy emotions in our emotional bank account, it makes us feel secure and confidence in ourselves.  When we take these healthy emotions out of our bank account or put in unhealthy ones, it makes us feel insecure and we will lack confidence in ourselves.

Every day we need to keep depositing healthy emotions in our own emotional bank account and also into the emotional bank account of others so we can help each other feel confident and keep our esteem strong.

Have  you made a deposit today?  Was it love?  What about appreciation?  A kind word?  A thoughtful deed?  Keep making those deposits and watch the benefits grow!


Remember the emotional bank account—similar to a bank account, you can make deposits or withdrawals from each of your family relationships. Make a conscious effort to make meaningful deposits in your relationships. When you make a withdrawal, apologize and correct the mistake.   ~Steven Covey
