Raising Self Esteem



“To have an incredible increase in self esteem, all you have to do is start doing some little something. You don’t have to do spectacularly dramatic things for self esteem to start going off the scale. Just make a commitment to any easy discipline. Then another one and another one.”
Jim Rohnllies

Nothing is more important than how you feel and think about yourself. A high opinion about our self and who we are and what we do and basically a love for our self is important for healthy self esteem.

A good place to begin to raise your self esteem which helps you create healthy motivation can begin by doing the right thing.When you do what you deep down think is the right thing to do then you raise and strengthen your self-esteem.

It might be a small thing like getting up from the couch and going to the gym. It could be to be understanding instead of judgmental in a situation. Or to stop feeling sorry for yourself and focus on the opportunities and gratitude for what you actually have.

It is not always easy to do. Or even to know what the right thing is. But keeping a focus on it and doing it as best you can makes big difference both in the results you get and for how you think about yourself.

One tip that makes it easier to stay consistent with doing the right thing is to try to take a few such actions early in the day. Like for example giving someone a compliment, eating a healthy breakfast and working out…This sets the tone for the rest of your day.

If you go outside of your comfort zone, if you try to accomplish anything that is truly meaningful then you will stumble and fall along the way. Remember to find the upside. Another way to be more constructive in this kind of situation is to focus on optimism and opportunities. So ask yourself: what is one thing I can learn from this? And what is one opportunity I can find in this situation? This will help you to change your viewpoint and hopefully not hit the same bump a little further down the road.

Spend more time with supportive people (and less time with destructive people). Spend more time with positive, uplifting people who have kinder standards and ways of thinking about things. Take time to read books, blogs, websites and listening to podcasts that help you and that make you feel good about yourself.

People with high self esteem feel good about themselves and appreciate their own worth. At the same time, they acknowledge their weaknesses but they do not allow those weaknesses to play an irrationally large role in their lives. And ultimately as your self esteem improves life so much happier.

“The most important opinion you have is the one you have of yourself, and the most significant things you say all day are those things you say to yourself.”
