A high level of self-esteem is the key to success in life!
How we see and feel about ourselves has a significant impact on how we spend our lives. Our experiences in the family, at school, with friends, at work, and in the community affect our perspectives.
Our capacity to think, deal with life, and be joyful is all part of our self-esteem. When you have low self-esteem, you tend to look at life through a negative lens, making everything seem dismal and worthless. We believe we are worthless, believe others are better than us, and find it difficult to express how we truly feel. We lack confidence and find it tough to stand up for ourselves.
There are a variety of factors that might contribute to poor self-esteem. You may have experienced a relationship split, been bullied, lost your job, or been in poor health. You may have been in a scenario where you felt dominated by another person, or you may have been exploited... All of these factors might contribute to a person's poor self-esteem.
The key to understanding low self-esteem is learning how to deal with and prevent the negative thoughts and self-perceptions which create and reinforce your belief that in some way you are not good enough.
Why don t you try the following:
Do what you love: Put effort into making life pleasurable and satisfying. Arrange to be in situations which are playful and make you laugh.
Learn something new: Maybe something you have always wanted to try, even something you never thought you could do. If you are stuck for ideas, look on notice boards and in local publications, observe or ask other people, think about what you have enjoyed in the past.
Keep a diary: when you write entries into your diary, you will begin to identify your strengths and boost self-esteem. Usually when we suffer from low self-esteem, we struggle a lot to bring good things to mind, we might feel uncomfortable thinking about, talking about or writing about the positive qualities we have. However, in order to begin noticing or recalling our positives, we must first write them down. You can stand up for yourself, believe in yourself, and believe that you are worth equally as much as anybody else when your self-esteem is strong. You feel confident, love life, and perceive obstacles as challenges when your self-esteem is high.
Look after yourself physically: Eat regularly, thinking about the sort of food you eat, and making sure you try to get the amount of sleep you need.
Exercise: Being in your body and getting those endorphins going can help you to feel good and increase your confidence. Hold your head high.
Complementary Therapies: Can help eliminate negative thought and help you relax and release tension and stress and enable you to boost and improve your energy levels and general well-being.

Love Yourself: Take yourself as you are. When you love yourself, others will love you too? Be grateful for you and take good care of yourself. Know that you are unique in every possible way.

Daily sessions can decrease stress levels, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth. When we are calm and aware, our real worth can overcome low self-esteem.
