Acknowledge Listing your accomplishments is a way of acknowledging yourself
An occasional self pat is an important way to acknowledge your worth. Think about all the things you've accomplished so far, and jot them down in a list. This list should be of what makes you proud and what is important to you. Going through it during your lows will be a reminder of your capability and will provide you with a much-needed boost.
Heal Heal your past issues, talk to a professional
Unresolved issues from the past can keep nagging at your self-esteem. Talking to a trusted friend is a great way to let your thoughts out. Journalizing also helps de-clutter your thoughts and get to the root of the issue. Seeking the help of a trained counselor is a professional way of letting go of your worries, and becoming more confident and self-assured.
Inspiration Read inspirational books and surround yourself with positive people
Reading inspirational quotes and books is a great way to lift your spirits. It is as important as surrounding yourself with friends who support, understand and value you. Learn to tell healthy criticism from negativity and walk away from those people who pull you down and don't add any value to your life. Be confident and learn to maintain firm boundaries.
Dress up Dressing up well makes for a good impression, spikes confidence
On a bad morning when your self-esteem keeps you from getting your day started, invest some extra time in front of the mirror to look your best. Dressing with confidence not only makes for a good impression, but it is also self-assuring and lets you move around with a spirit when you know that you have at least one thing under your control.
