February 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

Low self esteem is often caused by the lack of confidence or value of one's self. You see, loving yourself is the only best way of building self esteem and confidence. You might think that this is a conceited type of love and care. But, actually, it is not. It only suggests that you need to accept everything about yourself, whether it is good or bad. But in so doing, you should never bring yourself down.

Positive self-esteem can provide lots of helpful benefits to every aspect of a person's life, particularly on his family, career, relationships, social life, and inner health or morale. There are some people who highly value their career but not their social affairs. And there are people who feel most secure and confident when they are around self-assured people. This is in view of the fact that they are usually obvious and their actions are consistent.

Building self esteem and confidence can be achieved with ease by means of proper goal setting and planning. Self confidence is a type of skill that you can learn and develop. It is therefore important that you have a rock-solid foundation of self esteem in order to get through the everyday challenges of life. This is of the essence especially if previous effort of building self esteem and confidence were unsuccessful. Keep in mind that low self esteem and anxiety is often a result of too much pressure that you or others put on yourself.

Building self esteem and confidence is necessary especially when you came to the point wherein you already feel the following:

• Shy and uneasy • Lack of direction • You fail in everything you do • Inferiority complex • Feeling of hopelessness or unimportance • Resentful about career, social life and relationships

The major downside of low self esteem is the fact that it holds us back. A sound self esteem is very important for it allows us to succeed in life. It makes our life better and gives us the power to enjoy life more. Building self esteem and confidence is therefore considered as one of the challenges of life that we need to cope with. This way we will reap the rewards of having a productive and fulfilling life in general.

So, if building self esteem and confidence is one of you concerns, there are several ways on how you can be able to do this without difficulty. These ways include the following:

1. Try to become skilled at the things that the majority of people cannot do. It does not mean that you need t be a superhero with super powers to accomplish a certain undertaking that are usually avoided by people.

2. Study and develop a new skill. By this means, building self esteem and confidence is much easier to achieve.

3. Think big and plan big. Big plans can really make someone feel very special since our mind tells us that these big plans could lead to bigger accomplishments and of course, success.

4. Go out of your comfort zone. Building self esteem and confidence is often not achieved because we are afraid to rise above our comfort zone.

In summary, do not be shy or scared of the unknown. Building your esteem and confidence is a personal journey which you must undertake. Go for it! I wish you every success.
