Raise Your Self-Esteem

 


Visitors: 297

It seems like right when everything is going great, something will come back and remind you of your self-image. If your self-image is particularly low, then you will find it hard to move on to other things that you are looking to do. You will find that you become overly critical of your projects and products. The best way to move beyond this is to raise your self-esteem.

The first thing to do in raising self-esteem is to look at why you are down on yourself at the moment. Figure out what is wrong, and what you want to change. You might want to put these down on paper. Write down everything that you don’t like about yourself, everything that you are upset about in your own mind. Once you have this list compiled, take it outside with you. Then set it on fire, using a match. Watch this list of attributes that you dislike about yourself burn and let the feelings about those attributes turn to dust at the same time. By letting go of these feelings you are taking the first step towards raising your self-esteem.

The second step is to spend some time reassuring yourself about your successes. Take a recent product and analyze it for its good qualities, pointing out the high points of your results. As hard as we look for negative sides, spend that same time looking for the positive points. You will be able to find the good in your productions. You will be able to find the good in yourself, by spending the time looking for that instead of the negative.
