How To Raise Your Self Esteem In 5 Easy Steps

By Eve Francis

Most worthwhile projects or goals require a series of steps and perseverance as time passes in order to complete and achieve. Projects that are any amount of complex take time, preparation and staying with it through a number of phases over extended time periods. All that is also true about anything like choosing to raise your self esteem. Here’s the best way to do just that in 5 simple steps.

Step 1. Always associate with positive people. This will be important because they affirm the positive attributes that you have and they help bolster your feelings about yourself even when you feel you are living through very dark days. Should you skip or ignore this step, you can set yourself up for failure, because constantly comparing yourself to others and pining over what they have or can do, and you don’t or cannot; will just put you into a funk and make your opinion of yourself that much lower.

Step 2. Always accept compliments with affirmations and graciously accept any compliment that is offered to you. This is usually a crucial step that will require your full attention. Do it this way: because you should learn that by affirming to yourself that you are worthy of being complimented, then you feel that warmth inside you that says, “Yes, I am a worthwhile individual”. The reason why is because when you feel good and positive about yourself, it is reflected in everything you do, and everyone you come in contact with, and your interaction with them.

Step 3. Work at something you love; whether it be your actual job or an avocation; just doing what makes you happiest will elevate your feelings of self worth and radiate a positive attitude that surrounds you. The main reason is simply because we want to keep yourself pumped up and positive, so you can handle anything that faces you whatever the situation. Another important reason would be to find out about workshops on the subject of self worth and esteem, and get some tapes or reading material that you can study when you have time.

Step 4. Make a list of your past successes and your most positive attributes. To explain and amplify on that a little, when you read over your list of all the milestones you have covered, no matter how small; if they constitute success in your eyes, then savor them and think about how good you felt when you completed them.

Step 5. Maintain a positive attitude when dealing with other people; be gracious and extend yourself to others. Furthermore, Giving of yourself and of your time to others you will find to be a very rewarding and positive move; because as you give outwardly, you feel better about yourself inwardly.

Finally, if you have followed the above tips closely, you will succeed and will then enjoy the fruits of your success! You can pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for having achieved it! You set out to achieve your goal and you simply succeeded! Now enjoy!

If you did not stick to the 5 step tips above, shame on you! You must have decided that to raise your self esteem just wasn’t worth the cost to you! :-)
