PEP THEM UP – Boost Self Esteem
Very little of our capacity to feel good about ourselves is inherited. It’s almost entirely the product of our environment and upbringing.
Boosting self-esteem can have a huge impact on achievement in all areas of our lives.
Finding time to do this is important.
What does it take:
- find time?
- make finding time of importance?
- make our self a priority?
- ditch our favourite excuses?
Making sure we are liked is important; making sure we are not a bother is important too.
Praise needs to be
- focused and genuine
- part of our everyday life.
Praise is an extraordinarily simple way of boosting self-esteem
We learn by trying, making mistakes, by exploring.
We need acknowledging for getting it wrong AND when we succeed.
High self-esteem is about feeling good about our efforts. Not feeling bad about failure when/if it occurs. That’s how we learn.
Whether we are extraverted or introverted self-esteem is vital to the health of our lives.
Being introverted doesn’t exclude being confident, having high esteem.
Being extraverted does not necessarily mean having self-esteem.
Practise the above for yourself and to others and raise the self-esteem of everyone.
