How to Impove Self Esteem

 How to Improve your Self Esteem in 7 Ways

Stop Blaming Your Past
Many low self esteem issues begin in childhood, often because of someone important in their life: a parent, relative, or peer may have evaluated them harshly.
It really doesn’t matter who planted the seeds of your low self-esteem;  you must take control of your destiny as a adult to recreate your self esteem future.

  Your Life Your Destiny
Find a mirror, look yourself in the eye, and say, “I am responsible for everything in my life. And only I have the power to make my life better.”
This is not an affirmation – it’s a reality check. And despite the fact that these words may seem self-defeating,

Improve Your Trouble Areas
Do you have one or two areas that send you into spirals of despair? If so, fix those areas.
Example: If you doubt your intelligence, accomplish something intellectual; if you doubt your social skills, accomplish something social; and if you doubt your physical abilities, accomplish something physical. None of these things are easy but requires constant work. The rewards in this methods reaps tremendous benefits for every inch earned in success.

Embrace Failure

Failure is your friend! As long as your failures are moving you closer to your goals, you are on the right track just don't quit.
When you fail, figure out why and be determined to learn from it. What can you do to improve your chances of success next time? Find someone who has accomplished what you are trying to do and ask for her advice.

Finish what You Start

By learning to finish what you start,  you can learn  the most important lesson of all: that you are capable.
Sometimes walking away from a problem is the smartest thing you can do, but any decision to quit must come from logic, not fear. Instead of walking away from challenges, meet them head on. Finish what you start on a consistent basis, and you will soon learn to trust yourself.

Join a Club

Find something productive that you love to do (writing, dancing, acting, programming, or whatever) and then find a group of like-minded people who are interested in learning this activity with you.
The group is your support structure and your growth foundation.

Increase Your Positive Relationships

 Does a person logically appear to be a good influence? If not, consider moving on to a new relationship.
If you surround yourself with positive, supportive people instead of deadbeats and abusers –  then you are well on your way to a better  track and having a higher self esteem.
