Building Self Esteem – Three Simple Strategies

Have you ever missed out on an opportunity just because you have low self esteem? Have you ever felt so nervous that you failed completely at a job interview, even though you know you are right for the job?If so, you should understand that building self esteem is one of the most essential steps you can take to realize your true Self and towards your personal growth. Having high self confidence usually indicates that you are in alignment with your true Self and therefore makes it so much easier to realize the things you want in your life!To make sure that you would never miss out on an opportunity and realize your dreams, here are three simple strategies to building self esteem.1. Trust Your Own Opinion About Your True SelfThe first step of building self esteem starts with trusting your own opinion about your true Self, the inner self that connects with the highest power. If you do not listen to your own voice when it comes to your self worth, you will most likely be brought down by the external opinions about you. Then no matter how hard you try to build self esteem, your efforts will be torn down by you listening to the outer opinions or circumstances.Think about it, everybody in the world, even the most remarkable people, are faced with some sort of disapproval from other people. What makes these people remarkable is that they always trust their own opinion about their true Self. Other peoples’ opinions or the exterior circumstances will not have the power to form who they really are.EXERCISE: Start practicing this strategy by observing your thoughts. Pay attention when you notice that you are allowing other peoples’ opinions to bring down your self esteem. This exercise alone will gradually stop this self-limiting pattern and start the process of building healthy self esteem.2. Set a Specific PurposeBuilding self esteem also involves a process of focusing your energy on a specific purpose. When you set yourself a specific purpose, you will be establishing a characteristic of decisiveness which is a sign of high self confidence.Think about the people you know who are insecure. More often than not, these people are indecisive because they do not have a definite purpose about what they really want in their life.Finding a specific purpose in life can be quite challenging for some people at first. But once you start trusting your own opinion about your true Self and ignoring the outer distractions, you’d find that it becomes extremely easy to set a specific purpose for yourself.EXERCISE: Start writing down what your specific purpose is. Don’t worry when you cannot identify a specific purpose at first. Just write down what comes to mind and gradually your thoughts will clarify. Then before you notice, you’d develop a specific purpose of your life.3. Change What You Talk To YourselfYour self esteem is a direct product of your thoughts and what you talk to yourself, without you noticing it. Think about how sometimes you can instantly bring down or build up someone else’s self confidence just by talking to them. You are actually doing the same to yourself. The difference is that your inner dialogue has an even more intense effect on your self esteem because you are talking, and listening, to yourself every moment, unconsciously.Therefore, the most powerful way to start building self esteem is changing what you talk to yourself through positive affirmations.EXERCISE: Just ask yourself how you would talk to someone else if you wanted to boost their self confidence. Take the same dialogue and read it to yourself every day. You can also look in the mirror and look yourself in the eye while reading it, for much faster results.Now go try these simple strategies. With practice and consistency, you’ll be building self esteem and realizing your purpose of life that you always wanted.Wish you great success!
