How To Overcome Low Self-Esteem
Overcome your insecurities
We all have the voice inside that tells us to GIVE UP! when things get hard, AVOID! when we are under pressure and RUN! when we are outside of our comfort zone.
This voice stops us from taking action and severely damages our sense of self-worth.
That negative voice is our insecurities.
Giving in to your insecurities can make you incompetent, negative, unhelpful, lazy and even hostile to other people.
The first step to better self esteem is to identify this voice and make a conscious decision to reject its advice.
You may not be perfect but you are good enough
Perfection is the lowest standard because it is unattainable.
Celebrities can’t be the standard when it comes to your own self-esteem. In fact, self-esteem has very little to do with actual talent, looks or wealth.
Some of the most gifted people in the world have the lowest self esteem and feel that they are not good enough.
Comparing your life and what you have to other people’s lives is a very destructive habit.
The only person you should be competing against is yourself.
Focus on your goals and on your results.
