Here are 10 self esteem tips, guaranteed to raise self esteem!
Take responsibility for actions and life.
As soon as one takes responsibility for one’s actions and ultimately one’s entire life, this has an immediate impact on self esteem. Self esteem really does increase.
Why does this happen? This happens because by owning your life, and everything in it, you can’t help but feel better about yourself. You are taking your personal power back. As soon as you feel better about yourself, this boosts your self esteem. See self esteem exercise.

Don't believe every thought you think.
This simple yet profound statement has been appearing on bumper stickers for cars. It simply means what it says. The most important thing to remember is we have CHOICE in what we think and in what we want to believe about what we think.
Just because we have a thought doesn’t mean we have to believe that thought is true. Most of our “self talk” is negative anyway, and comes from our ego mind. Our ego mind wants us to stay small and insignificant.
If we can get quiet enough to tune into our higher self, the part of us where truth abides all the time, we can start paying attention to this part of ourselves, let our ego minds chatter away, and raise our self esteem by following our higher self.
Trust and respect are earned ...
By not giving our trust and respect away at a moment’s notice, we now learn to trust and respect ourselves. This is a great self esteem tip for use in all relationships. By learning to trust and respect ourselves first, we naturally feel better about ourselves and our self esteem increases.
Worry less about what others may be thinking of you ...
People think what they think. You cannot stop that. It’s far more important to focus on what you are thinking, and to focus on what you want out of life. The more you do this, the greater this boosts your self esteem.
Put yourself first in your life.
We have a cultural tendency to put ourselves 2nd, 3rd or even 4th in our lives behind our spouses, kids and careers. Once we put ourselves first in our lives as uncomfortable as that may be, our lives start to work, and we feel better about ourselves, and up goes our self esteem.
Judgments keep up separate from others ...
Do the judgment process and learn from this powerful technique the value of taking responsibility for all of our judgments.
Do the something I am thankful and grateful for process ...
Take a few moments every day, preferably just before bed, and write out at least 5 things you are thankful and grateful for. If you can think of more than 5 write these down too. This helps to change your focus to what is working in your life. You always get what you focus on. Focus on what is working and get more of what is working in your life. This also boosts self esteem.
Forgiveness is all a gift to your self. Write out on a piece of paper, something I forgive myself for is. Keep writing until nothing else comes to mind. Come back to this piece of paper every time you think of something else to forgive yourself for. This is a powerful way to take responsibility for your life and to increase self esteem. It is also a wonderful self esteem tip.
Use these self esteem tips, to improve your life, and to boost your self esteem.
