When you recognize your special sense of uniqueness and fully accept every part of yourself, you have successfully embraced the essence of you. And when you do, you’ll have achieved great comfort and satisfaction with yourself.
Reflect on these strategies to move ahead in your quest for self-esteem:
Identify that there is only one you. That’s right: no one else on this earth is quite like you. Your one-of-a-kind blend of character traits isn’t repeated by anyone else.
Take note of your unique mix of talents and skills. Maybe you’re a highly talented artist or musician and can wash a car or mow the lawn quicker than anybody else on your block.
You love to tell stories and your friends always call you to seek advice of how to deal with challenges with their friends.
Write down every talent and skill you believe you have. Then enjoy the glory of all the great things you can do. Let yourself feel marvelous about what’s on your list.
Acknowledge the compliments you receive from others. Learn to be open and accepting of what others tell you that you do really well. If you pay attention, your friends and loved ones will mention what you’re fantastic at through the compliments they give you.
Maybe you’re the safest driver, funniest person to be around, or the best cook in your group of friends. When your friends remind you of these things, tell them you appreciate their comments. Let yourself feel the love.
Realize you’ve survived troubles before. You’ve no doubt survived your own set of struggles to make it to where you are right now. So, thank your lucky stars for providing you with the skills and talents that can help you survive and thrive.
There’s no one else quite like you, and that’s something to feel good about. Notice your own mix of personality characteristics, talents, and skills. Bask in the compliments you receive from others. And rejoice about whatever you have that’s good in your life.
“The greatest difficulty is that men do not think enough of themselves, do not consider what it is that they are sacrificing when they follow in a herd, or when they cater for their establishment.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
You enhance your passion for life whenever you increase your self-esteem. Some activities to take part in include applying yourself at work, using your thoughts to help yourself feel better, and doing some housecleaning, physically and emotionally. Also, take time to practice the hobbies and activities you love and work to be the best partner or parent you can be.
Focus on sprucing up your physical self and allow yourself to feel joy about your special set of talents and skills—there is only one you.
As you begin working on these areas of your life, you’ll notice something slowly flowering: your self-esteem! And when you have self-esteem, you’re ready to build the life you crave and so richly deserve.

Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.”
