Hello everyone. Let’s get some of your confidence back with these building self-esteem activities. If you have ever felt like you were just not good enough, or recently had a wall come up against you, this just might be what you need.
Self esteem is very important. Without it we could never achieve our destiny. You have to feel good about yourself to properly engage with other people.
Please look through this post and ponder what points could help you feel better about yourself.
Take care of your own needs first.
Don’t neglect the things that you need. You need to eat healthy and get good sleep. You need to take a shower once in a while and brush your teeth.
Whatever your needs are take care of them. You really can’t be too helpful to someone else if your own needs aren’t met.
Negative self-talk is no longer allowed.
Don’t tell yourself lies and say bad things about yourself. Your brain will believe you more than it will believe someone else. There are enough things that come against you day to day that you need to be good to yourself.
Instead of telling yourself something like “I’m not a good dad” you should say something like “I may not be the best dad, but I am getting better every day”.
Change your thinking to a positive mindset. When a negative thought about you starts to creep in to your mind stop it in its tracks. Turn it around and say something positive about yourself.
Say out loud to yourself every day all the things you are grateful for. Put yourself in a happy state. Be grateful for things like your health, your kids health.
Say you are grateful to have that job or that good friend.
Everyday point out the things you are grateful for.
Celebrate your successes.
Even small successes are important. Be happy that you didn’t lose your mind on your kid when he didn’t put the milk away. Tell yourself you are awesome because you made that sale last week.
Give yourself rewards for doing little things that you know you needed to do. Give yourself an extra Oreo for breakfast because you didn’t stay up all night playing video games.
Soon those little successes will turn into bigger more meaningful successes.
Look for ways to be a blessing to someone.
When you bless people you not only help them, you increase your own value as well. It’s always good to bless people, but don’t discount what it does for you.
This can be so simple. Let someone in front of you at the store. Give someone a compliment. Help your kid with his chores so you can get outside to throw the ball faster.
Anything you can think of that might brighten someone’s day can be a blessing.
Keep increasing your positive thinking.
Just like not talking bad about yourself you will want to increase your positive thinking. Guard your mind against negative thoughts about anything. Choose to only let positive thoughts dominate your mind.
Your kid got a bad grade on a test. So what, that won’t follow him around for the rest of his life. Speak faith into him. Tell him you know he will do better next time because he knows better of what is expected of him.
This is not easy to do. It takes constant and never ending practice. That brings me to my next point.
Don’t beat yourself up.
When you stumble, and you cause a result that your don’t want, don’t waste time and space in your mind beating yourself up. This won’t help you to not do it again next time.
So much of the time we get mad at ourselves for insignificant things. So you forgot to fold your laundry. Yes you will have to drag out the iron tomorrow or just go to work like you are wearing lettuce. Shake it off and iron that shirt.
Have some self care and be happy with how you look. Be grateful you have an iron and tell yourself you are going to crush the day. Get to the office and tell the receptionist she looks very nice today.
Get your work done well and right and go home and love your kids.
Become a person you never imagined you could be.
Do you really want to gain self-esteem? Get out of your funk and negative attitude of yourself?
Then take my #1 recommendation for achieving it.
Get the book by Tony Robbins “Awaken the Giant Within“.
If you get this book and follow the exercises it will literally change your life. It does take some time, but you will need some grace and time to make a real and lasting change.
