You Can Boost Self Confidence and Self Esteem

419809_10150583921420806_92266620805_9390610_654814204_nWithout any cause for a debate or argument, everybody would agree that with a little bit more self confidence and self esteem a person can elevate his self worth. He or she can become a better person with more belief in his or her self. You can see the world in a whole new perspective and your self confidence is a big factor in this change.

The benefits of having a bolstered self confidence and self esteem are boundless, but lacking it can imprison you in a lacklustre life. People would just be stepping on you and you will be completely ignored, languishing in a cellar of despair. You may never realize the full extent of your potential.

Building your Self Confidence and Self Esteem

The true key to gaining self confidence and self esteem is to truly love and believe yourself. For some people this could be very hard, especially if they grew up in an environment with out a shred of unconditional love and support. This kind of people doesn't know how it is to give love. You cannot give what you do not have.

Another key is determining which areas you are adept in. Focusing and developing the areas you are in strong in will let you fully believe in your skills. The more you see an aspect in your life that you are good in, you can finally appreciate yourself and be proud.

As you build your self confidence and self esteem, a great way to develop it is to test and challenge yourself slowly and gradually. The more challenges you conquer the better you will feel about yourself.

No need to wait, you can start building your self confidence and esteem right now, a whole world waits for those who believes and loves themselves.


Your 7 Days Program To Self-Improvement

I seem to lost count on how many times I've read and heard of celebrity marriages failing almost left and right. Not that I care (and personally I don't), it seems strange that we often see movie and TV stars as flawless people, living the fairytale life of riches and glamour. I suppose we all have to stop sticking our heads in the clouds and face reality.

There are many ways to lose your sense of self-esteem despite of how trivial it could get. But whatever happens, we should all try not to lose our own sense of self.

So what does it take to be a cut above the rest? Here are some of the things you can think and improve on that should be enough for a week.

1. Know your purpose
Are you wandering through life with little direction - hoping that you'll find happiness, health and prosperity? Identify your life purpose or mission statement and you will have your own unique compass that will lead you to your truth north every time.

This may seem tricky at first when you see yourself to be in a tight or even dead end. But there's always that little loophole to turn things around and you can make a big difference to yourself.

2. Know your values
What do you value most? Make a list of your top 5 values. Some examples are security, freedom, family, spiritual development, learning. As you set your goals for 2005 - check your goals against your values. If the goal doesn't align with any of your top five values - you may want to reconsider it or revise it.

The number shouldn't discourage you, instead it should motivate you to do more than you can ever dreamed of.


3. Know your needs
Unmet needs can keep you from living authentically. Take care of yourself. Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be right, to be in control, to be loved? There are so many people who lived their lives without realizing their dreams and most of them end up being stressed or even depressed for that matter. List your top four needs and get them met before it's too late!

4. Know your passions
You know who you are and what you truly enjoy in life. Obstacles like doubt and lack of enthusiasm will only hinder you, but will not derail your chance to become the person you ought to be. Express yourself and honor the people who has inspired you to become the very person you wanted to be.

5. Live from the inside out
Increase your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to quiet your distracted mind. For most of us city slickers it's hard to even find the peace and quiet we want even in our own home. In my case I often just sit in a dimly lit room and play some classical music. There's sound, yes, but music does soothe the savage beast.


6. Honor your strengths
What are your positive traits? What special talents do you have? List three - if you get stuck, ask those closest to you to help identify these. Are you imaginative, witty, good with your hands? Find ways to express your authentic self through your strengths. You can increase your self-confidence when you can share what you know to others.

7. Serve others
When you live authentically, you may find that you develop an interconnected sense of being. When you are true to who you are, living your purpose and giving of your talents to the world around you, you give back in service what you came to share with others -your spirit - your essence. The rewards for sharing your gift with those close to you is indeed rewarding, much more if it were to be the eyes of a stranger who can appreciate what you have done to them.

Self-improvement is indeed one type of work that is worth it. It shouldn't always be within the confines of an office building, or maybe in the four corners of your own room. The difference lies within ourselves and how much we want to change for the better.

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 11

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 11

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  I feel sad.  I feel like I have done something wrong which I have.  I feel angry at myself for doing something stupid and vial.  I feel dishonorable.  I feel like I will not earn back their trust.  I made a promise that I couldn’t keep.  I feel as if I have failed and was rude that day.  I feel like I have failed whoever I disrespected and others around the person that I disrespected and now I owe them my respect.  We should respect everyone no matter who they are. If they are a human being, we are to respect them like what the Bible says.  You should respect your parents.  When you disrespect someone it’s like killing their trust in you.  Everyone knows you need trust and respect to get somewhere in life.  No one wants to fail in life.  Everyone wants to succeed and not fail.  If you disrespect someone you might as well just leave their line of sight because that is just rude, very rude.  That’s what I feel when I disrespect someone.      JS – 13

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 10

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  I feel like a rude, no-mannered boy.  Disrespecting someone is like ignoring them.  Some people can give us serious consequences for disrespecting them.  Do not especially disrespect your kin because they can take away your games, your outside time, and even your phones.  It can hurt an elder’s feelings really bad if you disrespect them when they tell you to do something like take out the trash or clean your room, and even to just help them for a couple of minutes cleaning the house or the yard.  It really could make them cry or talk about you or make them think you have no manners at all. Even when you are staying the night at your friend’s house and his mom asks if y’all could please clean the yard up when y’all are through playing in it.  If she went to the store and bought groceries and she asked you to please help her, don’t say no because his or her mom would probably not let you stay the night anymore on the weekends.  She may not let you stay the night any more, period.        JCW - 13


How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 9

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 9

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  When I’m disrespected I feel angry and get my feelings hurt, but when I disrespect someone I feel worse than I do when I’m disrespected.  Disrespecting someone hurts all, even yourself because it makes you feel bad for the way you treated the other person.

How you treat people is a big part of life and it shows your personality.  How you treat people can affect your adult life.  If you disrespect your boss then you won’t have a job anymore.  If you don’t have a job then you can’t pay your bills or buy food.  You will either be stuck at home with your parents or out on the streets homeless.  Not only that.  You’re going to feel bad for yourself and mad at yourself for losing your job and for the way you acted out in the first place.

When you disrespect someone you feel their pain.  It hurts you just as much as it hurt them.  Or at least it does for me when I disrespect someone if they deserved it or not.  I always regret it either right away or later on in the day.  I won’t feel so bad if they are the ones disrespecting me because I know they have karma coming for them.  I think that why I’m here on probation is because of all the wrong I’ve done to other people.       TT - 17

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 8

How do I feel when I disrespect someone? When I disrespect someone I feel bad about it later on in the day. As soon as I say the disrespectful words I feel pleased but then after a while I start feeling bad when I think about the words I said.  Sometimes I don’t even think about what I say before I say it.  There are a lot of times I have where I just say the first thing that pops into my head.  I speak my mind and I can be very rude when I do that.  When someone disrespects me I get mad and then I start disrespecting them. Then I have my times where I end up disrespecting them first.  I can be rude and I can be nice.  It just depends on who it is.  Some people I just don’t like and when they speak to me I get rude and then it causes problems or I’m blunt about my feelings and that gets me into a huge mess.  I feel bad about disrespecting my teachers and the students sometimes.  Most times it’s funny.  But when I’m so rude the teacher starts stating that I hurt her feelings or something then it’s different and I start thinking about what I said. When someone disrespects me I feel like I should hit them but the feelings pass after I sit down and slowly but surely let it go and move on.    HL - 15

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 7

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  I feel really bad and I feel like I hurt the person.  When I disrespect someone it makes me feel bad because it can make a person kill themselves because of me.  So when someone disrespects me I don’t disrespect them back.  I just don’t pay attention to them.  If I do disrespect someone I tell them I’m sorry.  When I disrespect my mom, dad, brother, grandparents, or other family, I hate myself because I love them and don’t want them to be hurt.  I tell them I am sorry.   JN - 14

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 282269_450190121690719_1642657584_n6

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  I feel that it is wrong in a way and you shouldn’t do that to your mother, a teacher or another student.  You should never disrespect anyone.  It is bad manners and it is rude.  You will get consequences and you will feel like a rude person and a selfish kid.  You will be treated the same way as you treated them and you will not like it. That is how they feel when you treat the disrespectfully.  Also the rule is if you be nice to others, they will be nice to you. You will make friends fast and treat people the way you want to be treated and it is easy to do.  It is really not fun treating people disrespectfully.  It is not cool and you will get rewards if you treat people the way you want to be treated.  It is fun getting rewards from people you know or don’t even know.         AB - 15

How Do I Feel When I Disrespect Someone? Part 5

How do I feel when I disrespect someone?  I feel so mad inside myself that I have to tell that person that I am sorry for what I said.  Then if they do not respond I will just have to walk away and not say anything else.  If they accept my apology I will be okay with that and if they do not accept my apology that is okay with me too.  I know what I did was wrong and I try to fix it and then I will feel better than I did before.  Then if I make them really mad I will say, “I did not mean to say that at all about you, sir/ma’am.  Please accept my apology.”         JR - 15
