One of the most common challenges people email me about is low self-esteem.
And how to improve your self-worth to become a person of high self-esteem.
So this week I’d like to share 15 simple habits that have helped me to improve my self-esteem and create a much more positive self-image (and sustain it even when times are tough).
Now, why is it so important to build and maintain high self-esteem?
Life becomes simpler.
When you love yourself – or at least like yourself a whole lot better – then you’ll stop creating so many problems in your life and you’ll magnify challenges less.
You’ll be a lot less likely to make a mountain out of a molehill.
You’ll not beat yourself up so often when you have a setback, when you make a mistake or when something you made did not turn out absolutely perfect.
You’ll self-sabotage less because as you raise your self-esteem you’ll feel more and more worthy of having good and great things in your life.
And that worthiness also leads to being more motivated to go after what you deep down want and to have fewer self-doubts.
You’ll be more centered and stable.
This is of course extra helpful when things don’t go as planned or you simply run into a rough patch in your life (as we all do from time to time).
But it is also useful in day to day life because as your opinion of yourself goes up you’ll be much less reliant on other people’s validation and attention to feel good about yourself.
And so you become less needy and your inner life becomes less of an emotional roller coaster.
You’ll be more attractive (in any kind of relationship).
As I mentioned above, with an improved self-esteem you’ll be less needy and more stable.
Being with you will also be simpler because you create less drama, arguments and fights based on nothing or very little.
And those are things that make anyone more attractive in any kind of relationship. No matter if it’s at work, as a friend or romantically.
You’ll be happier in your regular, everyday life.
And not just when something exciting happens or you reach a major milestone or achievement.
That’s at least been my experience in my life and a big reason for why I focus on my own self-esteem a lot and on keeping it steady (and it’s also the main reason why I created a whole, 12-week program called The Self-Esteem Course)
So those are some the biggest and most powerful whys.
With that said, here are 15 truly helpful practical tips, habits and strategies that…
