Tip #290 - Self-esteem

Self-esteem is your overall sense of your competence and worth. It is important to have good self-esteem. With good self-esteem, you will have confidence in your ability to learn, and willingness to try new things. There is a history of research which shows that self-esteem and achievement are related. Students with good self-esteem tend to be high achievers, while students with poor self-esteem tend to be low achievers.
What can you do to build your self-esteem? Here are some ideas.

  • Be positive about yourself. It’s much better to give yourself compliments than to put yourself down.

  • Think of all the things you are good at and all your successes. Write these down and keep adding to the list. Read the list every day.

  • Stop comparing yourself with other students. Your comparison should be with yourself. Are you better today than you were yesterday?

  • Associate with students who like, respect, and support you. Try to avoid students who are always looking to find fault with you.

  • Get involved in activities you enjoy. You will likely be successful in these activities.

  • Make use of your special talents and abilities. These are your strengths.

  • Take good care of yourself. You will feel better about yourself if you are healthy and well rested.

  • Attack what you think are your weaknesses. Prove to yourself that "you can do it."

  • Help others. You will really feel good about yourself when you do.

  • Keep looking for ways to improve yourself. As the old saying goes, "Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among stars."

The higher your self-esteem, the higher will be your achievement.
