Tip of the Day: How To Develop Self Esteem

I LOVE MYSELFOur self-esteem is instilled in us during our youth. Being constantly criticized by family, friends, and society tends to slowly strip us of our feelings of self-worth. Our low self-esteem strips us of our self-confidence to make even the smallest of decisions.

Start from within. Ignore any and all destructive criticism or insults, including any from your past.

Your opinion of yourself is the most important opinion of all, because you know yourself better than anyone else.  Improving your self-esteem increases your confidence and is a first step towards finding happiness and a better life. Dress nicely. No one is more conscious of your physical appearance than you are.

Have good hygiene, Take care of your personal appearance. Practice good posture, People with slumped shoulders and lethargic movements display a lack of self-confidence.

Work out regularly, Physical fitness has a huge effect on self-confidence. Give back to others, Volunteer someplace in your community. Compliment other people break the cycle of negativity by getting in the habit of praising other people.

In the process, you’ll become well liked and build self-confidence. Speak up, Many people never speak up because they’re afraid that people will judge them or think of them negatively.

Don’t always try to please others. It is great to be considerate of others, but think before sacrificing your own needs to please them.
