Self esteem describes how we feel about ourselves. Our self esteem or sense of self worth is normally based on our perception of our abilities and how we believe other people accept and value us as individuals. We automatically find ourselves accepting those beliefs and they feel like ‘reality’ to us.
To be successful in goal setting you need to do more than just plan and write down your goals. You need to change your mind set and challenge some of the biggest fears that you have, and equally as importantly, develop your own self-belief. Goal setting can help you achieve success and happiness in your life. Remember, success in life is determined by yourself concept. You should therefore do everything in your power to improve your positive feelings about yourself while holding on to your humility.
Here are some proven ways to increase your self esteem:
– How do you feel about yourself?
Self-belief is how you feel about yourself. Self-esteem is determined by your internal feelings and evaluation of yourself based on your “perceived” self-image. If you are constantly comparing yourself to others and feel like you don’t measure up, your self-esteem suffers. In this life, one has the ability to change whichever negative self-images he or she has acquired. Sadly, many people never ask if the negative beliefs they have picked up are true.
Also, learning appreciation and gratitude is a sure-fire way to make you feel good. Acknowledge all your good qualities. Take some time to write down as many as you can. Read them over and over and feel the positive energy grow in you. Be grateful for the value of what you are gifted with. Reward yourself with whatever you feel you deserve.
– Success has to come from strength
Everyone has his or her own strengths including you. Your strengths have passions because they are the ones you must develop. Examine positions where you can apply your abilities and then get trained for them. Dream more about what you desire to accomplish and set an ambition to achieve it. You can accomplish what you focus on long enough. In order to develop your self esteem, you must love who you are, while acknowledging that your personal unique qualities make a valuable contribution to humanity. Know that people who in your eyes tend to be better off also have problems as well despite what they portray to you.
