We live in such a hectic age that it’s often times easy to fall under the spell of social conditioning and fall victim to the pressures that we all face on a daily basis. As much as we shape and define our reality, outer world defines us too, unless we know how to use certain spiritual tools we have inherently posses, as human beings.
One of those tools, arguably the most important one, is self-esteem. A legitimate question arises: How to build self-esteem in adults? Read on to find out because that’s what we will be focusing on in this article. Without further ado, here they are – 5 tips on how to build self-esteem in adults.
5 Amazing Tips On How To Build Self Esteem In Adults:
1) Silence Your Inner Critic
As much as we hate to admit it, we all have that annoying, bitter, negative inner voice. “You’ll never get that done, you’re too lazy. You’re not good enough. You don’t look good. You’re not smart.” are some of the things that inner voice whispers, sometimes even shouts.
There are, however, ways to silence that voice. Whenever you hear that voice or feel it coming up take a deep breath and refocus your thoughts. Try not to get annoyed or angry. Those negative, low energy emotions are what feeds your inner critic. Just take a deep breath and say to yourself: “No, we are not going there.” The more you do this, the better you will get at it and that voice will eventually completely vanish.
2) Don’t Compare Yourself To Others
It’s really tempting to measure your own worth against other people. Don’t fall into that trap. It doesn’t matter if you’re comparing yourself to someone objectively better or worse than you – the outcome is, in most cases, the same.
Everyone is different and success is an incredibly relative, ever-changing concept. Society defines what success is, not anyone or anything else. You are who you are – better yourself because you want to better yourself, not because you want to be better than others.
3) Get Rid Of Limiting Beliefs
Who says you can’t do what you want? Nothing is impossible. Break down those barriers in your mind. You are in charge of your life and you are the only person that gets to decide what to do with the time you have been given. There is nothing that can limit you.
Whatever you set your mind to – you can do it. Sure, most things take a lot of hard work and dedication, but that’s what makes them worth accomplishing. Societal norms, popular media and even your family and friends cannot define or limit you.
4) Cultivate Positive Thoughts
Think positive. You’re setting yourself up for failure if you think negative. Most people are naturally pessimistic and negative, do you know why? Because they’re scared. They’re scared of freeing themselves and that’s why that fall into that vicious cycle of negativity.
It’s a warm blanket they cover their insecurities with. It’s what helps them feel safe, but they are weak. Positive thoughts generate positive energy and positive energy breeds happiness, well-being and spiritual and personal growth.
5) Surround Yourself With Supportive People
You don’t need negative, toxic people in your life, even if their intentions are good. Forgive them, but move on. Surround yourself with positive, like-minded people.
This is absolutely crucial. Nervous, bitter perfectionists that criticize you and what you choose to do with your life are not your friends. Having a network of supportive, positive thinking individuals is the perfect breeding ground for abundant self-esteem.
Self esteem is the foundation of your spiritual architecture. Self esteem is the most powerful fuel for your personal revolution and an invaluable spiritual tool. We are all inherently confident but, somehow, most of us manage to lose that confidence along the way.
The time has come to restore it. Only once you do that will you be able to become your best self. Let me know what you guys think. As always leave comments and questions.
