I’m always on the look-out for top tips on building self esteem.
And I have discovered that these top tips are around us all of the time.
All we need to do is to look out for them.
I was listening to an interview of the 29 year old boxer Nicola Adams this week.
She had won a gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics and she was being interviewed.
Actually she had done more than “just” win a gold medal… she was actually the first woman in history to win an Olympic boxing medal. (photo credit)
And it was a gold medal, no less!
And in her interview she said Read More…
Did you know that having a good self esteem can do a lot more than “just” making you feel good?
It can also help you deal with problems when things go wrong.
And let’s face it – things are bound to go wrong from time to time.
Before I answer that I need to tell you about last week’s accident.
It All Started Last Weekend
Last Saturday I decided to “challenge” myself to writing a post each day during August.
But after only one day – one day mind you! – something happened that made me decide that I wouldn’t be able to Read More…
Is it possible to learn how to build self esteem and be wrong at the same time?
I am asking you to read what happened to me today and then decide for yourself.
And I explained how, just a couple of days previously, I had come across the Fitness Cheerleader’s August Challenge.
Janice (the cheerleader) suggested that those taking part could challenge themselves to making a blog entry each day during August.
And I thought that, even though I could see difficulties in doing this, it would be a good thing to make an attempt at doing Read More…
This how to boost self esteem Tip 3 can be as comforting, demanding, exciting and even as pleasant or unpleasant as you choose to make it.
But let’s be honest, there really is no extra benefit in making yourself do things that are unpleasant.
The only thing you could gain from doing that would be to learn how to do unpleasant things more often.
One of the main laws of boosting your self esteem is that it should make you feel good about yourself.
And it is much better to feel good about yourself doing things that make you feel good.
And so the self esteem Tip 3 is this:-
Nikkita Holder knows how to build self esteem.
Just in case you didn’t know, Nikkita Holder is a world class hurdler (successful hurdlers are often described as being superhumanly graceful athletes).
Looking at Nikkita now you wouldn’t think that she could ever have suffered from lack of self confidence.
She can jump 10 hurdles over a distance of 100 metres in less than 13 seconds.
Nikkita has come an awful long way to get to where is is today. (photo credit)
And there are four keys that served to help change Nikkita from being self conscious to being self confident. But before I list out what these four keys to how to build self esteem, let’s just check Read More…
This how to boost self esteem Tip 2 is essential for anyone serious about feeling good about themselves.
And especially for you if you spend much time online.
In fact some people are really proud of the fact that they have collected hundreds of friends or followers.
But getting friends of this type isn’t like having “real” friends.
I know that.
It is a virtual kind of existence. (photo credit)
I mean, when I log into Facebook, or any of the other social sites, I do realise that I am not meeting these people in reality.
My Facebook friends, people I follow on Twitter – and those who follow me – are real people for sure – but in reality they are what is known as “virtual friends”.
And I have many of these “special” friends that I have never met up with except Read More…
One of the most powerful ways to boost your self esteem – the way we feel about ourselves – is by taking action and achieving results.
Low self esteem is bad. It makes us feel that we can’t do things; that we can’t achieve; and it makes us reliant on others for approval and help.
But when you take action to do something – and you are successful – you automatically start to feel better about yourself and, little by little, if you repeat that process, your self esteem will continually grow and strengthen.
I noticed that this was an interesting side effect of taking part in Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge.
In fact I have learned such a lot from doing the challenge that I wish it lasted for longer. Four weeks may be a long time but it feels that it was such a short time in reality. (photo credit)
The Quick Start Challenge is all about making a powerful start in developing an on-line presence.
Most of the people who have taken the Challenge have a focus on Internet Marketing but there are quite a few others, like myself, who want to promote other areas that make an impact upon Read More…
Most people in the Quick Start Challenge are involved in internet and online marketing.
I’m not surprised they want to get the Internet Marketers Power Booster.

- Get more people to visit our blogs.
- Get more visitors to engage with what we are writing about, and
- Get more of those engaged visitors to trust us enough to want to share/buy/ get whatever we are offering.
And for all of that to happen in the quickest possible time and with least effort. (photo credit)
Is this impossible?
If I am to believe what Dean Holland says, the answer to this question must be – No it is not impossible.
This is what Dean has said in the past-
“The achievements I have accomplished over the last 3 years have proven without doubt that Read More…
Once you know how to build self confidence your whole world can change.
For the better.
You may have heard the old Chinese proverb that says:-
In the same way, if someone could give you a measure of confidence you would feel a great benefit, but eventually your self confidence would wear off and sooner or later you would find yourself back at the beginning again.
But if someone taught Read More…
In this, my Boost Self Esteem Tip 1, I give you a fundamental tip that is guaranteed to give your self esteem a boost.
The fact is, your mind is a wonderful thing.
But you can also allow it to create a hell on earth if you don’t look after it and guide it to do what you want it to do.

Your Mind Has A Wonderful Limitation
Even though we normally think of limitations as being bad – in the case of your mind, this limitation is wonderful!
And it is wonderful because this particular limitation is that your mind can only think of one thing at a time.
Why is this a good thing? (photo credit)
Because this limitation means that it is an easy Read More…
