 Introduction
The Psychology of High Self-Esteem
By Nathaniel Branden, Ph.D.
This workbook is a guide to self-discovery. All of the exercises within its pages arementioned in your cassette program, but you cannot expect to receive the full benefit of the tapes if you don’t actually sit down and do the exercises. The workbook is includedto help speed you along your path of personal growth, and to facilitate your activeinvolvement in your own development.The sentence-completion technique, which makes up the majority of these exercises, wasdeveloped as a tool to bring about self-discovery, self-expression and self-healing. It is aremarkably effective way of doing a form of therapy at your own pace and on your owntime. With repeated use, the exercises in this program will bring you greater insight anda deeper understanding of a very important person in your life—and that personal is you.You will see that each set of exercises corresponds to a specific tape side. You may wantto read through this workbook before you begin the tapes, or you might prefer to listen toa tape side and then do the corresponding exercises. The order in which you do your listening and your writing does not matter. What matters is that you do commit yourself to full participation in this program.DO NOT WRITE DIRECTLY IN THIS BOOK. We suggest you do all the exercises in aseparate workbook. In this way, you can repeat the exercises as many times as you wish.You may find it very interesting to read back in your workbook and see how your responses change over the course of months or years. For exercises using the sentence-completion technique, just copy the sentence stems from the following pages onto pagesof your own workbook. Give yourself room to write at least six to ten endings for eachsentence stem.If you are willing to become engaged in the process of your personal growth—this is the perfect program for you. You will soon discover an amazing truth. You know muchmore than you presently think. You are about to embark on a voyage into your self; youwill emerge more alive, more capable of achievement, love and joy.
 Living Consciously
Exercise 1 – Living Consciously 
Prepare two lists. In list one, identify the areas in your life in which you operate with themost consciousness. In list two, note the areas where you operate with the leastconsciousness. Identify at least three areas to improve on with regard to your level of consciousness. Meditate on what seems to be difficult about staying in high-level mentalfocus in these areas.3
