Self Esteem And Success

I've always felt and observed that the most successful people have a really healthy dose of self esteem. We're not talking about ego- centric megalomania here. Just a good strong sense of self that provides the building blocks for doing the rights things right, and not being awfully concerned about the opinions of others about YOUR own sweet self.

I know. I know. That is so much easier said than done.

So how does one go about strengthening one's sense of self?

I've observed several approaches and I'll give them all to you because in this instance as in most, there is no "one size fits all."
Choose only one. Not one from each list. Only one.

1. Do one "good for your body" thing each and every day. This is the quickest fix I know to make you feel better about yourself and your world. And if that is happening, things get better. It doesn't have to be hard. Choose one of these things or find another -- just make it short and sweet.
a. Do 10 sit-ups each morning before you get dressed.
b. Take a walk at lunch time.
c. Use a treadmill or a mini-trampoline while watching TV.

2. Do one thing at home each and every day.
a. Make your bed before you leave the house.
b. clean the kitchen sink before you leave the house.
c. Pick up the mess before you go to bed.

3. Write a thank you note every day. Thank you for...because...
a. To a family member.
b. To a client or customer.
c. To a co-worker.

My understanding of this principle is that is not nearly so important what you do. The important part is that you establish a discipline that makes you feel like you've accomplished something and that you have kept your word to yourself.

"I said I'd do it and I did it. Every day. Even if I didn't have time. Even if I didn't feel like it. I did it! YEA!"

Why not start today and let me know how you feel about yourself next week. Really!
