Self-Esteem has a huge impact in our lives. What you think about yourself and how comfortable you are with yourself determines how high or low is your self-esteem. Take a moment for a reflection.  Ask to yourself if you deserve the best and if you feel you are important. If you have answered ‘YES’- great, but do your thoughts, body language and actions say the same?

Don’t be afraid to have a high self-esteem thinking that you will turn into an insolent bossy arrogant person. Having a high self-esteem will make you feel good about yourself and others. People with high self-esteem have very high respect for others. They know we are here exchanging knowledge and experiences.

1. Accept Compliments

Don’t say it is nothing. Enjoy the compliment and say thank you. If someone is praising you it is because you deserve it. Be proud of you.

2. Pay Attention To Your Self-Talk

Psychologists reckon that we talk to ourselves around 60 thousand times a day. Self-talk is our internal dialogue, powerful messages that we transmit to our brains. It can be either invaluable or painfully destructive to our self-esteem. Stop right now the negative self-talk when your interior voice says “I can’t do this” or “I am not good enough”. Be vigilant and substitute them immediately to positive self-talk.

3. Avoid Negative People

Run away from people who are constantly criticising you. They will make you feel bad. Hang around with people who make you feel good about yourself. Optimistic and positive must be your choice for friends from now on.

4. Don’t Blame People or Events

Take responsibilities for your outcomes. You are in change of your life; you are the one who can make the difference. We reap what we sow!

5. Focus On The Present

Now is the only time we are in charge and we can make all the changes we want. The past is gone there is nothing you can do about it. The future is not here yet.

6. Stand Up Straight And Tall

Our body language affects immensely our self-esteem. If we stand up straight, stomach in, chest out, head up. We will certainly feel more confident.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
