Self-Esteem isn’t only for the one who seeks a place on a stage. Indeed, self-esteem is the space from which the mind and the soul are one intertwined process from which greatness can come alive through self-expression. Here are 5 tips to build your self-esteem when you believe to have none.
1). Be perceptive about yourself
Choose to perceive yourself from what you love about yourself and keep on holding onto that each and every time you feel less than amazing! You must begin to change the way you see yourself by changing the lens of perception you had until now. Imagine yourself putting down the old pair of glasses and putting on a new one. This new ones only filter the good.
2). Consistency is key
Self-esteem building is similar as weight-loss. Unless you keep practicing everyday, results cannot happen. Give yourself a daily reminder of goodness. Find at least one thing you are grateful for everyday. Realize that you and only you can be grateful for this for no one else has lived it the way you did!
3). Walk your words
Make a list of the virtues that you hold high in your heart and make point in reaching one of them everyday. Humility, Kindness, Truth, Faith, Joy are some of those. Decide which one you will be embodying today and choose accordingly to the state of being you have declare yourself to be.
4). Get smart
Cleverness, although innate to the human genius, is something that one must nurture, develop and maintain. Read clever contents, watch smart programs, interact with intelligent people, listen to wise speeches. The greater you open your mind to smart information, the greater you become. This is the Law of osmosis. Grab any chance you get to educate yourself and build yourself from within.
5). Live from your Spirit
Self-esteem is the by-product of self-love, self-acceptance and self-respect. Nothing outside of yourself can ever bring these to you. This is the ultimate learning process. Self-discovery is the most direct and surest way to Presence. Release outside validation and need for others’ acceptance and begin to recognize the greatness within. Fall back in Love with yourself for the beauty that lies within. This is the most challenging journey of one’s life and the most rewarding and empowering at the same time.
You can start here and now. You can begin your journey wherever you are because the journey needs no pre-requisite besides the willingness for the Self to be reborn into something that matters for itself and into someone who cares for his or her own amazing Life experience!
