Building Self-Esteem


If I want to improve my situation, I can only work on one thing that I can control myself. Self-esteem is the foundation of your life. If you do not like parts of your life, you have the power to rebuild that foundation. Begin with your beliefs about yourself. Update all that is false or that fails to support your growth and highest good. Remember, you alone have the power to change your inner world. As you gradually accept the truth of these new beliefs, your feelings about yourself will improve. This, in turn, will affect your actions, accomplishments, and relationships and you will experience more love, joy, abundance, and satisfaction in life. To know you are getting better, you can do a check on yourself and try to achieve the below:

  1. Having an internal locus of control.
  2. Taking care of yourself and prioritizing your needs— physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
  3. Maintaining a balance between extremes of thought, feeling and behavior; when out-of-balance, taking action to correct.
  4. Learning from mistakes and being able to say, “I made a mistake, I’m sorry.”
  5. Managing your life responsibly.
  6. Honoring individual differences among people.
  7. Listening to other points of view.
  8. Taking responsibility for your own perceptions and reactions; not projecting onto others.
  9. Having the ability to listen to your wise inner self (your intuition), and to act on this guidance.
  10. Demonstrating self-respect, self-confidence, and self-acceptance above everything else.
  11. Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses.
  12. Choosing continuous self-improvement and taking positive risks.
  13. Balancing being and doing.
  14. Feeling warm and loving towards yourself.
  15. Giving and receiving love easily, with no strings attached.    dolly chepngetichMakeup: Davies Msafi
