Self worth

To value yourself, you must start within. This means that the value comes from you. If you value yourself low, people will do so too. But if you value yourself high, others will have high value on yourself too. I think how high or low people value themselves depend on their confidence level. Most people who have high confidence level believe that they are worth as high as people can be while on the other hand people with low esteem will view themselves as those who worth nothing. Which one are you? I'm sure that every one of us wants people to have high value of ourselves. Don't you think so? For those of you who somehow have low esteem and confidence, here are several ways that can boost up you self worth. I think in order to stand out in the crowd, you have to be able to stand up straight and keep your chin up..

Ways to increase your feeling of self worth
  1. Write down 7 minor goals for the week and tick one off each day as you achieve it.
  2. Read a book a month. Reading a book is actually an achievement in this technology and media driven world and reading a full book is a great way to achieve a sense of accomplishment.
  3. At the end of each day before falling asleep write down something you feel proud about, either on the day or in the past.
  4. Tell someone else how much you appreciate them, being able to be open and honest is great for self worth.
  5. Say no! Learn the skill of saying no without offending the person asking.
  6. Everything you do, do to the best of your ability even if it cleaning the toilets or something equally as mundane, develop a reputation as someone who takes pride in their work.
  7. Walk tall and proud. walk as if you’ve got somewhere to go and you need to be there now, never run just walk tall and quickly.
  8. Dress as smart as you can for each occasion, whether it be work, meeting a friend, or going for an interview. Take pride in your appearance.
  9. Do something for yourself every day.
  10. Learn a new skill or take up something you’ve always wanted to and stick with it.
