What you accomplish every day is to your self-esteem, what water is to your life.
– Sara Maya Smith
Everyone has goals. However, committing to the right goals and being able to achieve them is what shows who you really are. In other words, if we dedicate our time and our efforts to anything we like, we have far too many objectives to reach. And guess what? We are not able to reach all of them and we feel frustrated, and this has a negative impact on our self-esteem.
As a result, the value that we give to ourselves in a similar situation is quite low, and we feel worthless, because we feel that we’re not able to keep a promise to ourselves. Instead, if we choose to select only a few goals, and we focus on and commit to them, we make possible their achievement, and we feel much better.
Proving our value to ourselves is essential for our self-confidence and the way we feel. And the best way to do it, is by being consistent and taking action every day, taking all those small steps that will take us to our long-term and bigger accomplishments. The moment we start to see the first results, our self-esteem slowly starts to increase, and reaches a higher level every time we achieve a long-term goal.
So in a nutshell, the steps to increase your self-esteem are:
- Identify your goals.
- Focus on a selected number of goals.
- Identify which are the steps to reach those goals.
- Take action every day and move toward your goals.
- Be consistent.
- Don’t give up.
If you follow these steps, you will automatically feel satisfied, and this will have a great impact on your self-confidence.
It’s not easy to attain the desired results, but with the right motivation and self-discipline everything is possible. And it’s definitely something that anyone can learn.
