Are you feeling good about yourself? If your self esteem is low then you might not. Well, here are some great suggestions how you can feel great about who you are…

  • Learn to be your own best friend. What could you do to be kinder to yourself?
  • Understand that there are lots of good reasons to feel positive about yourself.
  • Be grateful for what you have. Learn to love and appreciate what you have now before chasing new things you think will make you happy. If you are not happy now with all that you have why do you believe you will be happy with what you gain in the future?
  • Remember your achievements no matter how small. Everybody has done amazing things in their life and you are no exception. What are your major achievements?
  • Know what you want. Learn who you are. See self awareness for more information about the hows and the whys of this important aspect of self development and personal growth.
  • Be true to yourself. Examine what you are saying to others and how you behave and act, is this the real you? When you decide on important things consider what you truly need or want and make decisions based on honesty admitting the truth of the situation to yourself and others.
  • Improve yourself always and whenever you can as there is no-one on this planet who cannot benefit from some self-analysis and self development. Setting aside time each day to work on self improvement is something that will make you feel so much better.
  • Build your Self Confidence  because without confidence you will not be able to face the hard challenges or decisions that await you and, in addition, lack of confidence will impact your relationships, career and success.

Take action now

Spread the love…

You can’t really affect what is going on in the world at large but what you can do is to change yourself and how you act towards others. If you act with love and genuinely help others then this will help you start feeling good about yourself. If you contribute to the world in a positive way then you have a purpose and you have value. Success is truly not about how much money you have in your bank account but how you affect the lives of others.

Learn to love yourself first and accept your faults, working on them as far as you can. Then you will be able to love others. Forgive yourself and then you can forgive others too. Doing this you will begin to feel good about who you are and what you do. Don’t compromise on your values. Don’t work in a job if it does not serve others in a way that helps you feel you are contributing to society. Stay honest to who you are and you will raise your self esteem and feel so much better about your life.
