Raising your self-esteem is an internal work that every successful entrepreneur or famous celebrity does.
Before you conquer the world, you must conquer yourself first.
Here's 7 little know methods to boost your self-esteem so that you too can become an ultimate top achiever in any areas you desire.
Method #1 Confident Body Language
Your body posture has a direct chemical influence on your psychology.
If you are slumping down like a depressed person, you're going to feel like a loser.
So walk up straight, sit up straight, eyes up, head up, shoulders down, breathe deeply into your belly and feel as if you were the luckiest person in the world.
Be decisive, take action and you'll be more confident.
Method #2 Dress Sharp and Be Good-Looking
Being handsome or pretty is a choice.
The way you dress tells a lot about how you perceive your self-worthiness. People judge you based on your first impressions, it's inevitable.
So are you in fraternity? Are you Steve Jobs? Are you the billionaire owner of Apple Computers?
No? Then throw away your New Balance 407 sneakers...
Method #3 Reframe Everything Into Your Advantage
One of the key skills of successful people is their ability to reframe the negative into positive.
Got a challenge? Had a bad day? Failed on your initial attempt?
No problem. You've just discovered your 17th way of what doesn't work and you are one step closer to what works.
Whatever happens, step back and see the bigger picture. Acknowledge that you might have screwed up, identify the problem, and then focus your energy into finding a new solution.
Method #4 Take 100% Responsibility Of Your Life
It's easy to blame someone else, to blame the situation, to blame the government etc.
But it hurts your ego if you choose to see the truth that it's YOU who had put yourself into such plight.
Maybe it's really not your fault, but it's STILL your responsibility to choose how to respond to that and get yourself out of the trouble.
Accept full responsibility no matter want, so that you gain your personal power back to change it for the better.
Method #5 Be Kind and Don't Judge
It's easy to judge someone based on the one-minute interaction you have with them.
We love generalizations, categorizations and simplifications. It saves our mental energy.
But when you treat others with kindness, generosity and compassion, it helps you boost your self-esteem because you've shown yourself that you too are a good person.
Of course there are extreme violent situations where it's hard to have empathy, but most of the time people aren't that evil and they deserve your respect.
Method #6 Slowly Transform Your Bad Habits Into Good Ones
It feels frustrating when you know you need some big changes but you struggle with starting the process.
Therefore, instead of hitting your big audacious goal of change, try to change the mini bad habits one at a time.
Instead of forcing yourself to wake up at 5am, why not start with 10 minutes earlier the next day?
Method #7 Unleash Your Beast Within
Finally, remember this:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
When you deprive yourself from being great, you are also depriving others from being awesome. When you let your light shine, you are also giving permission to others to shine.
Everyone wants progress, but very few want to lead. People are looking for proof that you can be amazing so that they can be amazing as well.
Liberate yourself so that you liberate others.
It's one of the most enlightening causes you can ever fight for.
