In today’s high stress lifestyle, its important to use self esteem activities to help improve yourself. It’s no secret that in order to become a top performer in your field, you need to get to and stay at a high level all while maintaining balance in your life.
Here are a few of my favorites. Many of which you can do within the comfort of your own home:
- Never Compare Yourself With Other People. All to often, many of us see people on social media websites only to learn that others are achieving a high level of success. When this happens, all you see is the positive things going on in other people’s life and all you see is the negative in your own. Any reasonable person knows that life isn’t always unicorns and rainbows. The person who you see as super-successful has their own negative stuff that they are dealing with in their own lives. Everyone is human.
- Be Proud of Your Own Successes. Regardless of how bad the perspective of your life as you view it at this moment, you have already achieved a great deal of success. Take inventory of your own success, both big and small, and celebrate it. Once you calculate even the number of small successes in your life, you will realize how much of these successes that you have taken for granted.
- Constantly Feed Your Brain. The more you feed your brain with knowledge, the smarter you feel, which leads to increased confidence. If funds are limited, the Internet is a wonderful source of empowering and educational material. Take advantage of this free source of information. If you are able to attend seminars in an area of study that excites you, do so without hesitation. It is very easy to talk yourself out of the possibility of success.
- Surround Yourself With Successful People. Philosopher Jim Rohn used to say that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with currently in your life. If you desire to improve that average, simply surround yourself with individual. By attending previously mentioned seminars, you will quickly find more than a few like-minded individuals that have already attained a certain level of success. Don’t be afraid to ask others how they did it. You will be surprised how open people are and are more than willing to help. Their success will rub off on you.
- Take Massive Inspired Action. Nothing will get the blood flowing than taking action. Many are afraid to fail and that’s what stops them from moving forward. For others, they are so overwhelmed so they make the decision to stop before they even start. As the saying goes, “How do you eat a whale? One bite at a time.” Concentrate on getting a number of achievable small successes together. A bunch of small ones will naturally lead to larger ones, therefore building your self esteem. However, even the smallest successes will not occur unless you take action.
By following these five self esteem activities, you will quickly feel better about yourself while having the help of others pull you up to the level of success you desire.
