Self Esteem

Real Estate Agent with Everest Realty Group

The definition of self esteem is a confidence and satisfaction in oneself.  It is evident that if we have good self esteem then we will achieve goals because we believe that we deserve them.  But, what if you are not setting big goals or you are not truly chasing them.  How do I improve my self esteem?

Perseverance is the real life expression of Self Discipline. 

When we persevere in a task or exercise or diet then we feel better about ourselves. 

Feeling better about ourselves equals increased confidence and satisfaction in oneself.

Increased self esteem then leads to a belief that we deserve more.  If we believe we deserve more then we will discipline ourselves to persevere through another task or plan or diet. 


Self Discipline leads to Perseverance that leads to increased Self Esteem that leads to increased self discipline.

It takes baby steps toward what you want, like you said if we perservere in tasks we feel better.  Even small steps help you to feel better about yourself and after a while those big goals do not look so big, but obtainable! A.K.

Self Esteem can also stem from the reactions and support of those you hang around and affiliate with whether it be your friends, family, coworkers or that of a club.  Setting goals for myself doesn't mean anything unless I am able to share the fruits of those goals with others...  That's the big driver for me.  I guess for me I just want someone to pat me on the head and say "Good Job!"... :D

With self esteem, must come humility. No matter how much you succeed, you must never forget where you started....
