10 Ways to Boost Your Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is the backbone of a person’s success. It is a quality which helps you realize your potential and worth, so that you always work towards harnessing your full potential. When you start doubting your own worth, you can become a victim to serious problems such as depression. A person who is depressed has no willingness or motivation to live and can, therefore, develop suicidal thoughts in his mind.

Hence, it is very important to boost your self-esteem. When you know your worth, it helps you achieve bigger things in your life than you ever imagined. If you thought you could build your self-esteem by mental tricks and visualization techniques, you are mistaken.

James T Canmore, in his book, “Hole in the Soul to Supercharged Spirit” explains that your mind can never heal your soul; instead, it is your soul that heals your mind. The 10 practical self-esteem boosting tips mentioned in this book are:

  • Be nice to yourself

Never be too harsh on yourself and don’t always try to find the negative aspects of things that you do. Give yourself a pat on your back for any good job that you do.

  • Look after your physical body

Your soul and mind can be healthy only when your body is healthy. Therefore, never neglect your health at any cost. Eat the right foods at the right time, get enough exercise and remain fit & healthy.

  • Take regular stock of your strengths and weaknesses

You should know what you are good at and what you can improve upon, if you want to realize your potential. Develop your strengths while you spend additional time and effort to work on your weaknesses and bridge the gaps there as well.

  • Surround yourself with positive people

Ensure that the group of people you are hanging out with is full of positivity and happiness. Their positivity can rub on you as well.

  • Be a supportive friend to others

Listening is a skill and not everyone is a master of it. You can improve your self-esteem considerably by just being there for your friend and lending him a listening ear.

  • Take care of your appearance

You should spend enough time and effort on your personal grooming because how you look plays an important role in how you feel mentally & physically as well.

  • Do something nice for someone else

  • List your accomplishments daily

Make a note of your achievements on a daily basis so that you know where you stand. It can boost your morale significantly.

  • List and follow your passions in life

Write down all your passions and make some time to follow them whenever you can so that you feel like you are adding meaning and value to your life.

  • Be true to yourself

None of these above tips will work if you aren’t honest to yourself. Set reasonable targets and appreciate yourself when you meet them.
