1.Higher Self-Esteem: Self-Esteem is how the person experiences and judges him/herself in the present. It goes beyond how one feels about or perceives himself; it is at the level of one’s essence and, therefore, is at the level of Being and consciousness. When one has high self-esteem, he/she is experiencing him/herself through his/her spiritual Life Energy or Self.
2.Better choice maker: When one is living from the level of self, one’s choices are towards freedom. One’s choices are in the direction of health, happiness, peace and love. One feels empowered to choose wisely.
3.More responsible: When one is living from the level of Self, one is conscious of his/her internal experiences and is responsible for all feelings, perceptions, expectations and yearnings as well as one’s behavior. Satir reminded us that all of our internal experiences belong to us . The Self is greater than all feelings, greater than all thoughts, greater than all unmet expectations. When we become responsible for our internal world, we experience the vastness of our Being. We then become responsible for our own growth towards becoming more fully human as well.
4.More congruent: Congruence is a deeply imbedded concept and the goal of the Satir Growth Model. In her early communication model, Satir encouraged people to be “straight” to say what they meant and do what they said. However, congruence as a meta-goal implies that people can grow to be in harmony with their own life energy and to experience the peace, joy, love and connection that exist there. When one is more congruent, one is free from negative experiences of the past as one is now living in the present at the level of Being. Other ways of describing congruence might include being integrated, real, genuine, or authentic. There is an expectation in the Satir Growth Model that Satir Practitioners have attained a fairly high level of congruence in their lives and can be congruent while working with their clients.
