The importance of a healthy self esteem cannot be underestimated. It is the foundation of your existence and central to everything you do. It is important because it impacts the quality of your life and the choices you make.

Individuals who are committed to improve their self esteem are also people who are motivated to take care of themselves and to consistently strive towards creating their best self. It is a self that creates goals and aspirations to reach fulfillment and happiness.

People with healthy self-esteem tend to regard themselves as worthy of positives and capable of achieving goals while being resilient when face with challenges and adversity.

Your self-value is the source of your mental health and affects your behavior and thoughts as well as how you feel about yourself, which in turn manifested by your well-being and confidence.

  • More Steps to Improve Self Esteem
    • If you want to improve your self-esteem, here are some steps to start empowering yourself:
    • Stop thinking negative thoughts about yourself. Focus on your positives and in general have a “half glass full” attitude.” If you’re used to focusing on your shortcomings, start thinking about positive aspects of yourself that outweigh them. When you catch yourself being too critical, counter it by saying something positive about yourself. Each day, write down three things about yourself that make you happy.
    • Aim for accomplishments rather than perfection. Some people become paralyzed by perfection. Instead of holding yourself back with thoughts like, “I won’t audition for the play until I lose 10 pounds,” think about what you’re good at and what you enjoy, and go for it. Also, the more you experience, the better you become
    • View mistakes as learning opportunities. Accept that you will make mistakes because everyone does. Mistakes are part of learning. Remind yourself that a person’s talents and skills are constantly developing, and everyone excels at different things and at different times — it’s what makes people unique and interesting.
    • Try new things. Experiment with different activities that will help you get in touch with your talents. Do one thing differently each day. Then take pride in new skills you develop. Also, by trying new things, you train your mind to break negative habits and adapt new ones.
    • Recognize what you can change and what you can’t change. Adapt the serenity prayer “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” by Reinhold Niebuhr. If you realize that you’re unhappy with something about yourself that you can change, then start today. If it’s something you can’t change (like your height), then start to work toward loving yourself the way you are.
    • Set goals. Think about what you’d like to accomplish, then make a plan for how to do it. Stick with your plan and keep track of your progress.
    • Take baby steps. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. It is much easier to start small that try to quickly rush to do big thing. Think long term and be patient
    • Take pride in your opinions and ideas. Don’t be afraid to voice your personal thoughts and have the courage to trust yourself.
    • Make a contribution. Tutor a classmate who’s having trouble, help clean up your neighborhood, participate in a walk-a-thon for a good cause, or volunteer your time in some other way. Feeling like you’re making a difference and that your help is valued can do wonders to improve self-esteem.
    • Exercise! You’ll relieve stress, and be healthier and happier. Physical exercise is the best anti-depresant
    • Have fun. Ever found yourself thinking stuff like “I’d have more friends if I were thinner”? Enjoy spending time with the people you care about and doing the things you love. Relax and have a good time – and avoid putting your life on hold.
    • It’s never too late to build healthy, positive self-esteem. In some cases where the emotional hurt is deep or long lasting, it can take the help of a mental health professional, like a counselor or therapist. These experts can act as a guide, helping people learn to love themselves and realize what’s unique and special about them.
    • Self-esteem plays a role in almost everything you do. People with high self-esteem do better in school and find it easier to make friends. They tend to have better relationships with peers and adults, feel happier, find it easier to deal with mistakes, disappointments, and failures, and are more likely to stick with something until they succeed. It takes some work, but it’s a skill you’ll have for life.
    • Improving your self-esteem, self-image, or self value, like any other skills, takes practice and patience. It involves courage, facing your fear, while having optimistic and positive (yet realistic) attitude toward yourself and the world around you.
    • By working from the inside out (focusing on changing your own way of thinking before changing others or the circumstances around you), you can build your self-esteem.
    • When you see yourself honestly and accept yourself, you will be able to remove your internal barriers that can keep you from doing your best.
