Self esteem, or the feeling of being confident or proud of self and the actions, behavior, judgment and other capabilities, is a universal quality that helps people be just themselves and be self-assured. However, not all men and women have equal self-esteem and the reasons could be numerous a troubled childhood, sadistic parents, affronting peers, traumatic ailment or accident, ugly physical appearance, deformities and more. Here are some universally accepted and proven ways to boost self esteem.
Take some risks
The more you step out of your comfort zone and take on new challenges and missions, the more you are going to be confident about your abilities. There might be some setbacks and failures, but you should not be afraid of them. The more you learn new skills and gain knowledge and experience, the greater will be your confidence on yourself. Above all, you can grow as a person and develop the courage to try new things. Build on small successes
Do not take on more than you can manage. If you dream of becoming a great cook, start with small dishes and try them for a few weeks before moving on to bigger and more complex dishes. In time, you will be able to prepare full meals for your entire family and even guests. Relish small successes and promise to yourself that you will not stagnate, but get better.
Avoid negative people
The world is full of people who are filled with insecurities, jealousies and a sadistic intent of deriving pleasure out of humiliating or belittling others. Avoid the company of such people, who are usually popular in a small circle but not usually well off in life. In any case, friendship should be always empowering and never demeaning. Even if a few of your loved ones are the ones who hurt or mock you and get fun out of it, you should avoid them and be in the company of people who are always positive and never display humiliating behavior. Exercise regularly
The society places a lot of importance on physical beauty, and treats good-looking, shapely people with more respect and admiration. Join a sports club or stick to a regular exercise program, and get in shape. It will improve your health, make you feel good and also make both sexes treat you with more respect. Write down your exito
Each time you are successful at something, write it down in a small diary or notepad and keep it somewhere safe. Thus, you will not forget it. With time, a mere glance at the growing list of successful activities will give you more autoestima.
