Healthy self-esteem is your most powerful success tool. The healthier your self-esteem the more you’ll truly believe in your ability to succeed. Here are ten powerful ways to enhance self-esteem and give yourself that added momentum to go for your personal, professional and financial goals.
1. Eliminate procrastination. Do it now!
Procrastination is a form of self-sabotage. Healthy self-esteem allows you to trust your judgment and get things done without the stress of waiting until the last minute.
2. Once you’ve made a decision, confidently follow through.
Healthy self-esteem allows your self-confidence to shine. Second-guessing yourself only leads to indecision and indecision chips away at healthy self-esteem.
3. Look at a difficult situation as a learning experience.
It’s not the end of the world if things don’t go as planned. Healthy self-esteem allows you to find the lessons that are often hidden or disguised as difficulties.
4. Eliminate shame and guilt from your life.
Shame and guilt are destructive to your self-esteem. Healthy self-esteem thrives on tolerance and forgiveness.
5. Use your creative energy to experience something new each day.
Healthy self-esteem allows you to try new things and experience new adventures. Take a class, go to a new part of the country – come out of your comfort zone.
6. Transform disappointments into positive energy.
This isn’t always an easy thing to do but it can prove every helpful for enhancing self-esteem. Take your disappointment and turn it around by asking yourself, “What positive thing can I learn and take away from this experience?”
7. Like yourself no matter what.
Look right into the mirror and say with pride and conviction, ‘I like myself, just the way I am.”
8. Use drive time to listen to self-empowering books and materials.
Your healthy self-esteem will thank you for feeding it valuable and positive information.
9. Help others succeed.
Giving back is a powerful self-confidence booster. The more you help others, the more you’re helping yourself. Healthy self-esteem is enhanced one good deed at a time.
10. Communicate with confidence.
Speak and carry yourself as if you are the most confident person in the world. Healthy self-esteem evolves from the confidence you have in yourself and your ability to positively communicate with others.
Healthy self-esteem begins on the inside and works its way out. How you feel about yourself on the inside is expressed to the world through your outward actions. What are your day-to-day actions telling the world about your self-esteem?
