Raising A Wounded Self Esteem
“self acceptance can build your self worth”

Let's face it, we can all get the blues once in a while and start beating ourselves up. But, when self deprecating thoughts and behavior start leading to problems at home and work, it is time to take charge and pick yourself up. It's simply a matter of confidence.

Being confident in ourselves makes us more pleasing and fascinating to other people. If we show that we are uncertain about some aspect of ourselves, it is a signal to others that we are not only less confident but also less engaged in life for we can only truly savor the pleasures of life when we are comfortable being in our own skin. Knowing which qualities attract others to you today will allow you to work on strengthening them so that they are present in your life—even when you don't feel sure of yourself.

How can I improve my self esteem?

There are many things you can do to improve your self esteem and here are a few ideas to get you started.

Focus on your achievements - if you take time to think you will realize that you have achieved so many things in your life. It doesn't matter what these achievements are only that they are important to you. List them and remember what they meant to you. It doesn't matter what you think about your life at present if you are honest with yourself you will make a long list and that will make you feel good. Every small thing you are proud of should be added to your list. The fact that you are focusing on positives will also help you to increase your level of self esteem.

Make plans for the future - following from above the next thing to do is stop wasting time and procrastinating get planning! What would you like to do but felt you couldn't? Time to decide for yourself that you will do it now! Make a list of things you want to do or want to change and start thinking about how to make a start. Then take a breath and just begin. You won't look back!

What you like about yourself - if you have low self esteem you probably keep reflecting on the things you don't like about yourself but if you reverse this thinking it is much more helpful. What do your friends like about you? Have you ever asked yourself that or even better, have you ever asked them? After you have listed all the things you like about yourself then the negative things seem smaller and less harmful.

What can you change that will make you feel better about yourself? There are two kinds of changes you may wish to focus on. The first are changes in your life and how you live it. Ask yourself are you happy in your job? Is it satisfying? Is there something else you'd rather do? What about your relationships or your social life? If you would like to be more assertive for example then start working on that immediately. Click on this link to get Assertiveness Training - a really helpful self hypnosis download that will help you enormously. Whatever it is that you feel you need to change then go ahead and do it. this will make you feel more in control of your life and your self esteem will begin to pick up.

Accept yourself and who you are - there are many things about your personality and character and your life that you may not be able to change and that shouldn't hold you back. Learn to accept those things and understand why you can still be happy and feel good about yourself despite these things. Try saying - well at least I am reasonably well off or at least whatever you can think of that is positive. At least turns a negative into a positive.

Alter your perspective on what is and letting go of past blunders can certainly raise your spirits but, practicing every day on self acceptance will pay off for a lifetime.

Here's to you!

Have an excellent week.

YOUR MIND

Look At Things as They Can Be
Max Steingart

Your range of available choices right now has no limits. The only limits you have are in your mind. You've got it in you to succeed. Just make up your mind and stick with it.

You weren't born with any limits on your powers or any set limits to your capacity. At any moment, you have more possibilities than you can act upon.

Imagine your possibilities and your vision expands. Capture your dreams in your mind and your life becomes full. Reach out and touch the limits of your being in your mind.

If you think you can, you can.

The Importance of Water Consumption

The following will probably amaze and startle you...

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease ! back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

While drinking 64 ounces of water everyday may sound like an easy task, it can get a little boring. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.

You Know The Way

"Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love ... and to put its trust in life." -- Joseph Conrad

How deeply do you trust your own guidance?

Always trust that you know what's best for you. To move forward in your life, gather information from the "experts," consider how their advice relates to your situation and then act only on what feels right for you. You are the only expert for your own life.

"I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn." -- Melody Beattie

"I never know what the next lesson is going to be, because we’re not supposed to know; we’re supposed to trust ourselves to discover it." -- Melody Beattie
