15 Tips To Improve Your Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is the value that a person has about himself. In this other article on self-esteem I explain in more detail what self-esteem is, what are the types of self-esteem and why it is important to cultivate good self-esteem .

In this post we will collect the best techniques and tips that you can implement from today to improve your self-esteem through your daily routine, because as you will see in the following interview I had with the Expert Coach in Self-Esteem and Empowerment, Mariela Sánchez, improve the Self-esteem is an everyday job and not something that happens magically overnight:

The most important thing I want to highlight before sharing various practices that will help you raise your self-esteem is to be aware that we ourselves are responsible for our self-esteem . And this in turn represents a great advantage because we are also the ones who have the key to change it through selective and conscious attention to the things we love about ourselves.

“To establish true self-esteem, we must focus on our successes and forget about the failures and negative events in our lives.” – Denis Waitley

15 Tips to Improve Your Self-Esteem Day by Day

Then I share a list with the most effective practices that you can carry out on a daily basis to build a healthy self-esteem:

    1. Don’t let the messages of others determine your self-esteem and the image you have of yourself. The more insensitive you are to the comments and criticisms of others, the better.
    2. Stay away from toxic people who Don’t believe in your potential or encourage you to achieve your goals.
    3. Make a list of the things you like about yourself and always keep it in mind . Sometimes we forget to see the big picture and only focus on the bad.
    4. Make conscious decisions about what is best for you and set limits when necessary.
    5. Work on what you Don’t like about yourself and what you can change . There is no use getting frustrated with things you can’t change. Nobody is perfect and in those cases it is better to let go and focus on your strengths and what you love about yourself.
    6. Appeal to who you are in essence: your true self. An original is always worth more than the copy.
    7. Be aware of your internal dialogue and how you talk to yourself. What does your “little voice” tell you? Are you condemning and judging yourself all the time, or do you talk nice to yourself and encourage yourself to get what you want? Replace negative or demoralizing messages with messages with positive connotations . There are things that we would not tolerate others telling us but, ironically, we repeat them over and over to ourselves. The thoughts and messages that you say to yourself are translated into attitudes and then into behaviors (that is, a thought ends up being your reality). This is why it is so important to present attention and make them aware.
    8. Finish what you start. If you try something and finish it, you not only receive positive messages from others, but also from you because you experience that feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction. Successes, no matter how small, reinforce our self-esteem.
    9. Have a fail-proof self-esteem. Remember that we all make mistakes and we all fail, but there are those who learn and grow; while others sink into them.
  1. Do not compare yourself with others. The only valid comparison is: What you are TODAY vs. What you were yesterday. Let your own results guide you and not those of others. Take what you admire in others as role models who inspire you to understand what is possible for you, but never be drowned in their success. Use the comparison only for inspiration, not frustration.
  2. Make a list of the greatest achievements of your life and keep them in mind as a source of motivation that reminds you of what is possible and what you are capable of.
  3. Celebrate your accomplishments so they stick in their mind and enhance your self-perception.
  4. Practice self-compassion and accept the fact that you are not perfect. Perfection does not exist. Talk to yourself the same way you would to a friend who was having a hard time. In this way, you will begin to see your problems as something that you are experiencing and not as something that defines you.
  5. Take care of yourself, pamper yourself and treat yourself from time to time. Exercise, eat a healthy diet, and rest when you need it.
  6. Keep in mind that you are a unique person . Do not want to hide those characteristics that make you different from the rest and merge with the mass because what makes you unique is precisely what makes you SPECIAL. So be proud of who you are and how you are. Let others see those singularities that make you be YOU.

Remember: It is You and that is YOUR POWER.
