Excerpts from Jack Canfield:
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
Your belief in yourself is what determines the amount of success you achieve in life.
When you cultivate unshakable belief in your own ability to succeed in life, the setbacks and obstacles you encounter on your journey won’t stop you from achieving your dreams.
How to Build Self-Esteem
1. Identify Negativity Around You
"You are what you surround yourself with! If you spend a lot of time around negative people whose comments encourage you to think badly about yourself and the world around you, that will have a huge impact on your sense of self-worth, resulting in low self-esteem."
"The same goes if you spend a lot of time listening to negative, angry, and depressing news on television or online."
2. Use the Power of Positive Thinking
"A positive mindset isn’t something you’re born with – it’s something you can consciously cultivate. This is important if you want to know how to increase your self-esteem!"
3. Take on New Challenges
"The best way to convince yourself that you are capable of achieving success is to actually achieve it! In other words, set goals for yourself and then accomplish those goals."
4. Acknowledge Your Successes
"We, humans, tend to obsess over our mistakes and failures and forget about all of the incredible things we achieve, experience, and survive in our lives."
5. Take Care of Your Well-Being
"When you feel good in your mind, body, and spirit, it’s so much easier to feel positive about yourself and your capacity to achieve your goals in life. That’s why it’s so important to take good care of yourself!"
