Improve Self-Esteem

What Is Self-Esteem?

Self-esteem defines as your overall sense of self-worth. Self-esteem includes: how much you appreciate yourself, how much you like yourself, and what are your beliefs about yourself.

Why Self-Esteem Is Important

Self-esteem can play a significant role in your motivation and success throughout your life. Signs of low self-esteem might be: negative evaluation about your actions and your future, believe that others are better than you, focus on your weaknesses, intense fear of failure, struggle with confidence. Low self-esteem may hold you back from succeeding at school, work or relationship because you don’t believe yourself to be capable of success.

By contrast, signs of healthy self-esteem might be: positive evaluation of your actions and your future, avoid dwelling negative experiences, express your feelings and needs, and acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses.

Healthy self-esteem can help you achieve your goals because you can acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses and still feel you are a worthy human being.

Factors That Influence Self-Esteem

Many external or internal factors can influence self-esteem like, issues in school, at work, changes in life span, your thoughts process, any potential illnesses, disabilities, or physical limitations. Additionally, genetic factors that help shape a person’s personality can play a role. However, it is often our life experiences that form the basis for overall self-esteem.
