How to develop your self-esteem and start your growth
Have you ever looked in the mirror and asked how much you have come to personally grow in terms of the direction and purpose of your life?
Have you achieved some of your goals or at least one of the dreams you had imagined as a boy?
The personal development and growth of each of us is based on the belief that in the end it is worth making the effort, dedicating the time and putting the energy needed to develop as a person.
All people have the seeds inside them to grow and succeed. All they need to do is grow those seeds and feed them to grow them.
So why do many people fail to grow and reach their OKRS?
Almost certainly one of the main reasons is low self-esteem.
Many people do not believe in themselves. They do not see the possibilities and talents that God has planted in them.
It is as if they had hundreds of hectares of land, but they never cultivate them because they are convinced that they will not be able to cultivate them and make something wonderful flourish.
You can have the chance to be anyone you want in life if you choose, act, develop a plan with OKR Software and don’t give up to complete it.
If we all understood the Mirror Law at a young age, we would be more advanced than we are now.
Often when we are young, we fail to understand that we have low self-esteem and how much self-esteem is important.
Let’s find out why.
The power of positive self-esteem
If you do not realize that you have real value and that it is worth investing in yourself, then you will never have the time and effort to reach your potential.
If you think you agree with the above, then consider the following considerations.
Self-esteem is the most significant key to a person’s behavior
Scientific research shows that in people, when talking about psychological development and intrinsic motivation, no factor is more important than the value of the judgment they have of themselves.
Every aspect of your life is influenced by the way you see and judge yourself. If you think you are useless, you will never value yourself.
How can you do things positively if you consider yourself negative?
Low self-esteem puts a limit on our potential
In the Laws of Leadership, we have already explored the Law of the Cover.
Imagine you want to do something great in your life that impacts other people too. Your leadership will limit your desire, no matter how great; it is the cover of your potential.
If your desire is a 10, but your self-esteem is a 5, you will never be at the level of a 10, you will perform as a 5 or lower.
People are never able to over-perform the image they have of themselves.
The value we give to ourselves is usually the value that others give us
Most people live their lives according to what others believe about them. If the important people in our lives expect us to go nowhere, then most likely this is what we can expect.
Everything is fine if people who believe in you surround you. But what if you’re not?
You shouldn’t get too worried about what others might think of you. You should be more concerned about what you think of yourself.
The eight steps to build your self-esteem
If you feel that you are strengthening your self-esteem, take the following eight suggestions to heart and put them into practice to better achieve your OKR.
Protect your conversation with yourself
Since we are children until adulthood we hear 30 times more the word “You can’t” compared to the word “Yes, you can”. This makes the belief in “I cannot” very powerful in the brain.
If you want to change your life, you have to change your way of thinking and talking to yourself.
Whenever you make a mistake, start telling yourself that you are paying the price for growth and that you will learn to do better next time.
Any positive thing you can say to yourself will help you.
Stop confronting yourself with others
What happens when you compare yourself with others?
Or you feel that the other person is far ahead and feels discouraged, or feels better than the other and feels proud. Neither of these options is good, nor will it help you grow.
The only person you should be confronted with is you.
Your mission today is to be better than yesterday. You can only do this by focusing on what you can do today to improve and grow compared to yesterday.
Go beyond your limiting beliefs
The biggest limitations that people experience in their lives are usually those that are self-imposed.
When a man puts a limit on what he can do, he puts a limit on what he can really do.
In the end, what you are is not holding you back, but what you think you are not.
Add value to others
Making a difference, even a small one, in other people’s lives raises one’s self-esteem. It’s hard to feel or feel bad when you’re doing something good for someone else.
Furthermore, adding value to others makes you more valuable and creates a cycle of positive feelings from one person to another.
Do the right thing, even if it’s the difficult thing
One of the best ways to build self-esteem is to do what is right. It gives a strong sense of integrity that also creates satisfaction.
Being true to yourself and your values is a great builder of self-esteem.
Practice a small daily discipline in a specific area of your life
If there is an area in your life that feels overwhelming, try stepping over it a little every day instead of trying to tackle it all at once.
Self-discipline is a constructor of positive morale.
Then increase your motivation and your morale by taking small steps that will take you in a positive direction.
Celebrate small victories
Taking a break to celebrate your little steps is good for you. The celebration encourages you and inspires you to continue.
Don’t underestimate the power of celebration.
Take responsibility for your life
We often tend to enter the life we are willing to tolerate. If we don’t have a plan and a purpose for our life, we will become part of someone else’s life!
It is essential then that you have the responsibility of your life in your hands to have no regrets and, at the same time, to increase your confidence in doing things.
Each of us can have his own ways to enhance the esteem he has of himself.
I’d like to know which ones are yours, so that everyone can benefit from it!
