It all begins one day, with your birth into the world. Showered with love and affection, you are adored, appreciated and enjoyed...
There will always be some people who have more than you and some who have less. You are unique and your purpose is to express your uniqueness. Who can do that better than you?
You can't develop high self-esteem if you repeat negative phrases about yourself and your abilities.
Perfectionism paralyzes you and keeps you from accomplishing your goals.
When you are surrounded by negative people who constantly put you down, your self-esteem is diminished.
Get yourself a beautiful booklet, and write in it every night, before going to sleep, 20 things you did well during the day. Big or small, doesn't matter, as long as you allow yourself to feel acknowledged.
When you do things for others, you are making a positive contribution and subsequently begin to feel more valuable, which, in turn, lifts your spirits and raises your own self-esteem.
It's hard to feel good about yourself if your days are spent in work you detest. Even if you cannot leave your present work situation immediately, you can still devote leisure time to hobbies and activities, which you find stimulating and enjoyable.
Live your own life - not the life others have decided is best for you. If you're making decisions based on getting approval from friends and relatives, you aren't being true to yourself and your self-esteem will suffer as a direct consequence.
Don't avoid problems, and don't complain about them. Treat them as challenges and opportunities for growth.
Recognize and take care of your own needs and wants first. Identify what really fulfils you - not just immediate gratifications. Respecting your deeper needs will increase your sense of worth and well-being.
