4 Ways to Build Lasting Self-Esteem
Self-esteem is essentially the quality of being pleased with yourself.
Learning how to be happy with yourself can benefit you in every aspect of your life.
Learn to love yourself and raise your self-esteem with these tips:
- Do something each day that you’re good at. We feel competent and confident while doing something that we know we’re good at. Make a list of the things you know in your heart that you do well. Do at least one of them each day and notice how you feel.
- Increase your knowledge or expertise. Constant improvement is a sure path to greater self-esteem. Keep improving yourself and your capabilities, and you’ll be more impressed with yourself. What do you want to become better at doing? What would you like to know more about?
- Stick to your values. When you fail to live up to your values, you won’t feel very good about yourself. Understand your values and live them each day.
- Define what you believe a good person should be. You can’t be happy with yourself if you don’t have a target to strive for. Understand what it will take to feel a high level of self-esteem. Each day, you can choose to be the type of person you described.
Work on your self-esteem each day.
It doesn’t sit at a constant level for most people. Good days, weeks, and months tends to raise it.
Experiencing bad periods of time tends to reduce it.
A great start is to decide on your values and then use them as a guide as you make decisions throughout the day.
