Elevating your self-esteem cannot be done overnight, it's a long process of consistent work, effort and reminder.
Here's 7 quick tips to inject another boost of self-esteem.
Tip #1 Do Your Daily Affirmation Play
I have created two A4 size sheet of paper that contains the kind of self-image I perceive myself as and the kind of ideal person I want to become.
When you collect your cool inspirations, quotes, dreams, goals, values in a single sheet of paper and you read them aloud daily, you can affirm the self-image you want to hold for yourself.
It's an effective way to slowly shift your identity to someone you admire to become.
Tip #2 Re-Evaluate Your Social Circle
You become the average of the 5 people you hang out most with.
Be extremely selective as to who you allow to enter your life. Your associations are going to either raise you up or drag you down.
Dissociate from those negative ones. Limit your exposure to who those you can't get rid of. And increase your association time with those you respect, admire and learn from the most.
Tip #3 Be A Mentor For Someone
One of the greatest fulfillment in life is to be able to impart your knowledge, insights and wisdom into the next generation.
It's a beautiful thing to experience when you know you've taught someone a valuable skill and made a difference in their lives.
So find your mentee and teach them something. It's a win-win situation.
Tip #4 Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously
Being goal-oriented is necessary, you should definitely work hard to strive for what you want. But at the same time, don't forget to enjoy the little things during the process.
Have fun, be present in the moment, and chill out when things didn't work out.
Get yourself up, pat your back, and keep going.
Tip #5 Be More Selfish
Yes, YOU should be the most important person of YOUR LIFE.
Never deny your own needs, desires or wants just because someone think it's not good for you. As long as you're not causing harm to others, there's nothing wrong to go get what you want.
Stop being people-pleasing and give yourself the permission to serve yourself first.
At the end of the day, there's nothing good and productive about trying to take care of the world while abandoning your own well-being.
Tip #6 Raise Your Standards and Expect The Best
If you want to win, win big.
If you want to aim, aim high.
If you want to pursue, pursue excellence.
Push your boundaries, eliminate your excuses, leave your status quo of mediocrity.
Don't settle for less. Demand the best.
Tip #7 Take The Compliment
Never deny genuine compliments when you know you've done a great job.
You deserve praises.
Be gracious, accept the awards, take off your armor and let your awesomeness shine!
