The RAPID Method for Genuine Self-Esteem

Definition: Self-esteem is a confident feeling that we are able to effectively deal with life's problems and to succeed at the task of living.

Good mental health is based upon achieving genuine self-esteem and we recommend using the RAPID method to achieve this by developing minds that are:

  • Rational
  • Active
  • Purposeful
  • Independent
  • Disciplined.

Rational

Rational minds treat all people and problems according to the principles of reason. They think objectively, systematically and creatively. Rational minds identify and organise perceived facts and they evaluate them logically. Consequently, they respond appropriately and more calmly. They have with a deep respect for facts and a high degree of practical common sense.

Active

Active minds are alert, and in full focus. They are aware of the opportunities and threats present in the environment. They are energetic, and fully conscious, so they are more perceptive and efficient.

Purposeful

Purposeful minds are on a mission. They have clear, long range, and valuable goals, which they know will benefit both themselves and others.

Independent.

Independent minds make decisions based upon their own evaluation of circumstances. They never blindly follow orders from others. Independent minds think for themselves.

Disciplined.

Disciplined minds fully commit to the standards which they have set for themselves. They do what they say they will do. They identify their bad habits, (we all have them!) and they work to eradicate them.

Disciplined minds are not easily distracted by interruptions, or feelings of anger, fear or desire. Disciplined minds keep focused on their goals, plans and actions. So, they achieve more, in less time.

Why using the RAPID Method is good for your mental health

The opposite of RAPID destroys self-esteem and leads to poor mental health:

Rational > Irrational: Irrational minds are over-emotional. They are driven by feelings of self-doubt, fears, prejudices and anger. Consequently, their responses are unpredictable and not in harmony with reality.

Active > Inactive: Inactive minds are sluggish, lethargic, and underused. Inactive people choose NOT to exert the necessary effort to focus their mental forces onto solving the problems that face them.

Purposeful > Purposeless: Purposeless minds have drifter mentalities, without ambitions, hopes, desires or goals. With no goals, they are not motivated.

Independent > Dependent: Dependent Minds are incapable of making unaided decisions and lack personal initiative. They need to be continually told what to do.

Disciplined > Undisciplined: Undisciplined Minds do not do what they say they will do. They fall victim to their bad habits which they never challenge.

These negative qualities are the inevitable consequence of failing to achieve the RAPID qualities.

Most people do not know the RAPID method, so it is easy for them to fall into the opposite mode of thinking and consequently they lack self-esteem, suffering with poor mental health.
