Increasing Your Self-Esteem by Liking Yourself

Self-esteem really matters. The origin of the word esteem comes from the Latin word aestimare, which literally means ‘to put value on’, or ‘to estimate’. Therefore, self-esteem means the value we put on ourselves.

One of the main key factors that determine a healthy level of self-esteem is a strong sense of self. Your capacity of what you can do and achieve in life can only be limited by your self-image, how you see yourself, and how you value yourself. It’s been said that many lottery winners lose almost all of their windfall money quickly, and many successful multi-millionaire businessmen whose business are wiped out overnight often bounce back and recover quickly. Although their fortune changed drastically, their self-value has not. The level of wealth is ‘equalized’ by the value that we put on ourselves. Wealth is only one of the many indicators, there are also social, health, career etc.

So, how can you enhance your sense of self?

Improve Your Self-Image by Improving Your Self-Talk

“The only difference between the best performance and the worst performance is the variation in our self-talk.” ~ Dorothy and Bette Harris

Suppose we could plug a set of headphones that are able to capture the thoughts of the people around us and listen to their inner conversations with themselves, what would we hear?

Suppose we could record our own inner voices that run throughout the day, and play them aloud at the end of each day, will we be shocked by what we would hear?

We carry conversations with ourselves all the time. If we can measure every statement that we make to ourselves, how many negative ones will we catch? Here are some typical inner dialog examples:

“I hate the alarm clock. I dread getting up and going to work”.

“Shucks! I’m running late again”.

“Not another bad hair day”.

“I think Sue and Jane are talking behind my back again”.

“I’m just not good at time management.”

“I’m not productive at all this week”.

“I’m too tired for my gym workout today. I’ll do it tomorrow”.

“This is the third time I’ve made the same mistake. Stupid me”.

“I feel so unloved”.

“I feel nervous about the presentation. I hope nobody will notice my shaking hands”.

“Why can’t I attract more success and money?”

“I just lack self-confidence. I can’t win this.”

Leaders are Readers

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers” ~Harry S. Truman

I developed the habit of feeding my mind with voracious reading since I was a little boy. Whenever I’d go out with my family to the shopping mall, I’d always end up at the bookstore section. It’s not unusual for me to spend at least a couple of hours there.

 

Books….books…books….

Over the years, my list of books have grown into libraries. These days, I’d also buy electronic books instead of physical ones. I’ve even subscribed myself to audio books membership with Audible for more than two years. I like listening to audio books when I couldn’t read, like when I’m driving or when I simply wanna rest my eyes on bed.

My books have become my valued personal asset. They’re mostly non-fictions, in the areas of personal development, career, health, sports/fitness, finance, travel and spiritual. If someone comes to my home and see the collections I have (both physical and electronic), he’d be impressed.
