    How To Improve Your Self Esteem - Task 3525 How To Improve Your Self Esteem - Task 3525 Presentation Transcript

    • How to Improve Your Self-Esteem
    • Self-esteem - Definition
      • The word 'esteem' comes from a Latin word that means 'to estimate'.
      • Self-esteem is how you estimate yourself.
    • Introduction
      • To evaluate your self-esteem, you need to ask yourself certain questions:
        • Do I like myself?
        • Do I think I'm a good human being?
        • Am I someone deserving of love?
        • Do I deserve happiness?
        • Do I feel deep down that I'm an okay person?
    • Important
      • People with low self-esteem find it hard to answer yes to these questions.
    • How can you improve your self-esteem?
      • You can begin by accepting that you are certainly not alone. (Masses of people have this problem).
      • Secondly, take on board the fact you are a wonderful, special person - and there is no one quite like you.
    • Self-esteem Strategies
      • Put behavior in perspective:
        • It's not healthy to condemn ourselves because of one aspect of our behavior.
        • Try not to believe that the whole of you is hopeless, unkind or a failure, when really it is just one part of your behavior that may - or may not - be these things.
      • Halt destructive thoughts:
        • Many people with poor self-esteem think they're not very important and their views carry no weight.
        • If so, try to stop these destructive thoughts because if you go around believing them, you'll encourage other people to believe them too.
        • Instead, start thinking of yourself as someone who has rights, opinions and ideas that are just as valid as anyone else's.
      Self-esteem Strategies
      • 10-minute technique:
        • People with poor self-esteem often fail to give themselves enough time and space. So find 10 minutes every day to be alone, and to just sit and do nothing.
        • During this 10 minutes, allow yourself to feel peaceful and happy. Enjoy this time. It is yours - and yours alone.
      Self-esteem Strategies
      • List 50 things you like about yourself:
        • If you're seriously lacking in self-esteem this could take weeks, but persevere:
          • You can write down your characteristics.
          • You can include things about your looks.
          • You can even write about the things you do.
        • When you have reached your 50 good things, keep the list somewhere you can see it all the time.
      Self-esteem Strategies
      • Getting criticism:
        • Criticism is often unfair, but some criticism is justified, and when we're sensible we can learn from it.
        • If there are aspects to the criticism that are valid, begin by agreeing with those points:
          • If parts are unclear, ask for clarification.
          • If you realize you were wrong, say so and apologize.
        • If criticism is wrong or unfair, smile and say: 'I'm afraid I don't agree with you.'
