What things can I do to increase my self esteem?

What are some things I can do to increase my self esteem?

Jeremy Hunter

I believe that self-esteem comes from feeling a sense of worth. So the question then becomes, how do we increase our self-worth? There seems to be 2 sure fire ways to this, growth and contribution. Growth can be achieved by actively working on being a better man or woman on a daily, even minute by minute basis. Practice living your fullest expression. Contribution has to be the number one way to finding self-worth.

The act of giving, especially to strangers can give anyone the boost they need. Remember giving doesn't necessary have to come in the form of money.

We can give by service, by holding a door, even by giving a warm smile to someone who really needs it. Try these two practices and feel you self esteem rise with each authentic action.
