PostSubject: IMPROVING SELF-ESTEEM   Sat Mar 29, 2008 5:33 pm

How Can I Improve My Self-Esteem?
Self-esteem is something almost anyone can use more of. Even the people who exude confidence on the exterior probably have nagging doubts in their heart of heartsódoubts that they carefully hide from those around them, but which gnaw at their souls. Doubt can be debilitating.

Luckily, anyone can take very practical steps to improve their self-esteem. Confidence in ourselves isnít something weíre born with overnight (unless weíre just cocky, in which case the confidence is probably ill-justified!). Anyone with a brain and a critical eye is bound to see whatís wrong in their lives. But itís always constructive to remind yourself whatís rightóand that, in any case, things can improve still more.

Below are just a few great pointers on increasing self-esteem:

1.Take stock of yourself.

Begin by asking yourself which areas of your life and personality need the most work. What changes would you be most proud of, and find most fulfilling? Compose a list of themófive, perhaps, or ten at the most (if youíre really self-critical!). Rank them. Think about how you can go about improving each point.

2.Build yourself up.

Donít get discouraged, dwelling too much on the areas you want to improve. Remind yourself of the progress youíve made thus far in life. Pat yourself on the back for having enough determination to try self-improvement in the first place. Youíre on the right track!

How will you get there?

Itís not enough to decide where you want to go in terms of self-esteem; itís more important to ask how youíre going to get there. Also, who can help get you there? Who can you trust for help, and for counsel, and even for a shoulder to cry on, if you have a temporary setback?

3.Counter-attack.

Tired of suffering the blows of fate? Tired of feeling like the football of the gods? Go on the counter-attack! Take action! Formulate a battle-plan, and assert yourself. You can make things happen. You can dish it too, instead of just absorbing blows.

4.Spread the wealth.

Self-esteem is something of incomparable value. At the same time, itís something youíve got to give in order to get. The more you build up the people around you, the more that same enthusiasm and confidence will reflect back on you. Spread that sense of optimism and excitement to every member of your team.

5.Branch out.

Extend your sphere of influence, and allow yourself to be influenced by interesting and stimulating new people, as you become a member of new organizations and interest groups. Find people who share your passions, and exchange ideas.

6.Engage in extra-curricular activities.

Take up a new side project, something youíll enjoy. Make it something youíll find relaxing, and yet exhilarating at the same time. Something that will improve you and make you a more well-rounded person. Perhaps itíll be a hobby or club or recreational activity.

7.Never stop learning.

Donít allow your thinking to stagnate. Join a class, on some topic youíre interested inóeven if itís something not directly connected with, say, your career, or your primary goal in life. As long as youíre passionate about it, youíll benefit from this intellectual stimulation. Its positive effects on your main interests may surprise you.



8.Count your blessings.

Never forget to remind yourself of how blessed and, ultimately, how happy you really are. Consider it an added bonus if your dreams come true; if they donít, right away at least, youíll enjoy the challenge, at the very least.
