Steps for improving your self esteem

“Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment.” Thomas Carlyle

How do you see yourself?

How you see yourself, your self-esteem, is one of the most important and powerful forces in your life. That’s because how you see yourself often turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you don’t see yourself as being able to do something, for example, meet new people, then you’ll have difficulty meeting new people. This is an issue of how you esteem yourself, commonly known as your self-esteem.

The good news is if you’re lacking in this area there are ways to improve it.

How Your Self-Esteem Affects You

Your self-esteem affects your relationships with others. If you don’t see yourself as being worthy of having quality relationships them you will probably find yourself continually in unsatisfying relationships that are either abusive or lacking in some fundamental way.

Oftentimes a person with low self-esteem has feelings of nervousness, anxiety and a pervasive sense of their own inadequacy.

This leads to a vicious cycle of seeing yourself as inadequate which leads to lower and lower levels of self-esteem.

 Improving Your Self Esteem

Just as a weakened self-esteem lends itself to all of the issues mentioned above, improving your self esteem can guide you in the direction of the positive outcomes you desire.

How can you strengthen your self esteem? How can you begin to put those unhappy feelings behind you and start living the life you were meant to live?

Here are 3 Simple Strategies for Improving Your Self Esteem

1. Focus on Your Good traits

To get rid of those negative beliefs that “you’re not good enough” focus on your good traits.

• Write down all down the things that you can do well and examples of the things you’ve been successful at in the past. While you may not feel any difference immediately, merely writing down these your good traits and what you’ve done well helps to begin to reverse your negative thinking and beliefs.

What you’ll find is, over time, you’re feeling more confident and a lot better about yourself.

2. Put your needs first

You don’t have to be selfish, just stop putting your own needs aside to make others happy.

Make yourself happy first.

• It’s okay to want to make others happy. In fact, this can seem very noble. Yet doing this at the expense of your own happiness is a recipe for dissatisfaction and resentment in the long run.

• As you practice making yourself happy you’ll be able to make others will be happy too. Everyone wins because you’re much more pleasant company to be around when you’re happy.

3. Find friends that build you up

You need to have friends who support your self esteem.

• If your current group cuts you down and finds fault in what you do all the time, find another group.

Why waste time hanging out with people that make you feel bad when there are many people out there who will support you and make you feel better about yourself?

• You probably already have friends that are there to pick you up when you fall down. Hang out with them. These are true friends.

• While finding them is not always easy and may not happen overnight, that’s okay. What’s important is to keep in mind that you deserve people in your life that see you in a positive light.
