Some people just seem to have a very self-confident personality, while others struggle with low self-esteem. Chances are you have accomplished a lot more than you have given yourself credit for. You probably have had to muster up some “courage” every now and then and didn’t think much about it. It’s not hard to gain self-confidence developing self-esteem is something you will need to work at every day! Here are five simple techniques to improve your level of self-esteem.

  1. Take inventory. Go back as far as you can and make a list of everything you have accomplished in your life. As you are listing your past achievements you’ll notice your mood will life and you’ll begin to have a feeling of pride. Keep the list visible and add to it as often as you can!
  2. Give yourself a “Check-up from the neck-up”. If you have low self-esteem, chances are your mental attitude isn’t great either. Keep track of your thoughts about yourself each day. If you find yourself thinking negatively about something, stop and immediately change it to a positive. For instance: when you find yourself wondering how you’ll get the project done on time; stop and immediately change your thoughts to, “I’m fully capable of turning this project in on time!” Stress is a great inhibitor and often the more worried we are, the less we accomplish.
  3. Don’t let others dump garbage in your head. Is there someone at your office who never has anything good to say about anyone or anything? In the past I have had to limit the amount of time I spend with certain individuals. For me it’s hard to be around negative, pessimistic people that only feel good when they are bringing others down. We acquire our mannerisms and attitudes by observing those around us. Surround yourself with optimistic confident individuals and what the change in you! It’s been said, “garbage in, garbage out” but Nido Quebin says, “garbage in, garbage stays and multiplies and grows.”
  4. Be a Kid Again. Children laugh an average of 400 times a day. As an adult, we laugh approximately 15 times a day. It’s sad to think that as we grow older we lose 385 laughs a day. Lighten up! Look for humor in every situation and you’ll be surprised how great you’ll feel.
  5. Live with Passion and Purpose. Self-confident people not only have goals, they have a zest for life. Set personal and career goals for yourself and follow up with a written plan. Don’t dwell on the past but look forward to the future and all that life has to offer.

“Passion is a key ingredient to the study and practice of life! It is with passion, courage of conviction and a strong sense of self that we take our next steps into the world. Remembering, that first impressions are not always correct. Remembering that first you must always have faith in people, and most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.” From Legally Blonde

Follow these five simple steps and within a few months not only will you notice the change in yourself so will the others around you. They’ll be whispering about you and envying the remarkable “self-esteem” you display!
