Self-Esteem

When You Can Be Yourself, You Have High Self-Esteem!

Building self-esteem is a critical exercise that a person needs to continually work on to achieve personal growth. It will most assuredly enable us to reach our potential. This has to do with our internal reference. What we perceive, think, and how we judge ourselves is crucial for this self empowerment.

Every successful person, be it male or female has hi self-confidence in the areas that they are noted for. This includes celebrities, politicians, business people, athletes, etc. 

Happiness, contentment, having harmonious relationships, successes, and body image are some of the associated experiences that lead to one’s state of building self-esteem. It is very important to nurture these things.

Regrettably, too many suffer from an inferiority complex syndrome. This state of mind is debilitating and negates productivity. The consequences of this low mental state can produce catastrophic results: overeating, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, mental breakdowns, suicide, and being envious of other's achievements.

One definitley needs to escape this feeling of self inferiority to reach full individual potential. However, many do not have the necessary information to develop this dynamic of the personality.

Building self-esteem can be accomplished if certain criteria are followed. The following words of wisdom demonstrate ways to build self-esteem which will help you achieve personal growth. These are some of the things that I have learned personally and also from the study of other people that's have reached certain levels of attainment.


Project Yourself

"To be the best you, you must be courageous enough to be you."

I came up with this inspirational quote, recently (December 25, 2013). It speaks volumes to those that are trying to achieve their personal growths. However, it takes courage to accept the realities within our lives and understanding who we are as human beings. We all are diverse and and typically know our strengths, but how many of us are honest enough to face our weaknesses. This goes along with being ourselves. 

Once we are courageous enough to tackle our shortcomings and improve upon them greatness can be realized at the end of the journey. We must also recognize certain things with in our lives that are creating misery and harmful effects. This may mean the breaking of certain relationships with other people. This is a very difficult thing to do, but it must be done if the relationship is not conducive toward your self growth.

From a mental standpoint, imagination is one of the keys to establish a positive way of life. After you begin the imagination process acquire more knowledge to build upon this groundwork. Visualize yourself carrying on your daily activities or tasks with confidence. You can use your imagination to create the feeling of confidence as you're wanting to project your own dynamic energy.

Now acquire more knowledge regarding your endeavors. Learn as much as you can about yourself and your environment. In time, you become a living dynamo experiencing success after success. The imagination creates the confidence and knowledge accelerates greater confidence.

Remember, "to be the best you, you must be courageous enough to be you." This is a magnificent avenue toward building self-esteem.

Life’s Uncertainties

The uncertainties of life are something that should be coveted. This may sound like a contradiction, because it puts us in a state of unfamiliarity. But, when you are uncertain about something different that is being explored, fresh knowledge and new experiences are acquired. This will benefit you in the long run as it fosters your personal growth.

Metaphorically speaking, "sailing in uncharted waters", often leads to the discovery some hidden treasure on an island never found before. Experiencing life's uncertainties can mean that you are about to encounter new and glorious horizons. They may seem intimidating in the beginning, but do not be afraid to enter into certain scenarios that
 you are not accustomed to.

Never jump into something and throw caution to the wind if you lack the knowledge regarding the specific endeavor. Judge it carefully. But, be optimistic and look at this moment as a great opportunity.

Once you began to experience this newfound project, you are actually building self-esteem as you get more proficient at it. The exposure to something different and unique, can be one of the greatest self-esteem activities to engage in and send your confidence ascends to higher levels.

On a personal level, I remember when I started my first take in the business world. I had to learn the dynamics of it from scratch and it was a little bit intimidating. But with an intelligent plan, concerted effort and an unwillingness to yield to the trepidation of uncertainties, I persevered and the end results were more than good.

By using the uncertainties of life to empower you will continuously aid in building self-esteem. This is a powerful attribute to have for it is a foundational tool that leads to substantial success.


Smart and Bold

Are living you living an unhappy substandard life that you created because of feeling inferior? Then elevate your primitive thinking to a higher plane. Too many times we have created our own setbacks. They can never be solved with a feeble way of thinking.

You must first believe in yourself, so you can get to the next level. Train your mind that you have great value and understand your intelligence level. We all have a specific intelligence ceiling, however its maximum can be reached if we are bold enough to exercise it.

Many have brilliant ideas and are certain that they will produce favorable results, but chose to remain dormant. Think out of the box, be bold, and go after it with all your heart, soul, and mind! Remove any vestige of doubt and drive forward with soaring self-confidence!

This is one of many notable ways to build self-esteem. It does work and will make your dreams a reality.


Credit Yourself

Building self-esteem is a powerful attribute to develop. When something positive happens in your life, stop to analyze it for a moment. Give yourself due credit for making it happen.

Think of all the strengths you possess and ways you contributed, both directly and indirectly, to make this positive event occur.

For example, if you scored well on a test, don’t just think of how hard you prepared for it; give yourself due credit and how your drive, intelligence, and dedication played a role.

Thought patterns such as these will be effective and as a bonus give you a high level of optimism. So remember to give yourself full credit for your accomplishments.


Building self-esteem has to with the evaluation of ourselves as a whole. It can be either positive or negative. It has to do with many factors. Our relationships, occupation, fitness level, being traumatized, etc. are what contribute to the condition of building self-esteem.

There are many methods for us to practice as we chart the course to fulfill our potential and achieve personal growth. This choice is ours, so let's take advantage of them.
