Self-esteem is one of the hardest obstacles to overcome in one’s personal growth path, a lack of it often determines the inability to achieve one’s goals, not only in the long term, but also in the immediate future.
Taking care and cultivating self-esteem will help you throughout your life, it will become the fuel of your success.
There are several ways to increase self-esteem, here are 3 of the most effective.
# 1 Take care at your appearance
We know that the mind has influence on the body, but above all the opposite is true: the body influences the mind, to understand it it is sufficient to change posture.
Try to pull your chest out, raise your chin and take a safe and positive position, you will see that the change of the body will follow that of the mind.
Care and improve your physical appearance, accept yourself as you are first, but do not be satisfied, you can do more, you have no reason to neglect yourself as you will spend a whole life inside your body, develop your appearance, take note of the change, self-esteem will rise without even realizing it.
# 2 Define goals and achieve them
Self-esteem suffers every time you set goals that you do not achieve, when you make a promise that you then do not keep, when you decide to do something that you do not then realize, your self-esteem loses a few centimeters.
This vicious circle makes it more difficult to accomplish something good for yourself.
So stop procrastinating and set yourself clear and simple goals, but above all carry them out without excuses.
Start with really simple actions that make you scared, then move on to longer and more complex tasks, realize your dreams and your desires and take note of having succeeded once and for all.
# 3 Enhance your strengths
Enhance who you are, what are your strengths?
What are your talents and abilities?
What are you really good at? What makes you happy?
Take some time to answer these questions and develop your aptitudes.
Become an expert in a field, it does not matter what it is, but you must become a real expert, let yourself be passionate about what you like, show others, but above all yourself what you are worth.
Remember what you did to be here, we all followed a path in life, some happened an easier path, others more difficult, but if you are here you too have overcome difficulties and are still standing.
Think back to everything you have had to endure, to all the hits you take, make them make you stronger.
Self-esteem is improved with commitment
Really smart people work for the future, to make their path a bad tree-lined avenue, you do the same thing, work to improve your self-esteem and work to live a better life.
Learn not to give too much weight to the judgment of others, if you receive advice, accept it, if you receive criticism, accept that too, but do not take it personally, use it to improve.
