Simple Activities That Promote Self-Esteem Can Make a Huge Difference in Your Success
by Les Hutchinson
With all the busyness of life that confronts you on a daily basis, it is important to also make time for including activities that promote self-esteem. How you feel about yourself is crucial to achieving life satisfaction and reaching those goals that you have set in place for yourself. If you feel that you are not capable of experiencing successes, your tendency will be to limit yourself in the challenges that you accept. When this happens, your world becomes smaller and smaller and you will forgo wonderful opportunities for fear of anticipated failure. Doing small things that support and build your self-esteem can make a huge difference in your confidence level and willingness to take healthy risks.
Learning to use your time well is an important aspect of building self-confidence. When you have planned your day’s activities and focused on getting what’s really necessary completed or at least addressed, you will feel better about yourself and more in control of your life. Many people have found that using a daily planner helps them plan their days to be more productive. One of the simplest activities that promote self-esteem is to avoid “time-wasters” such as answering phone calls that will be merely distractions. Let the message machine work for you while you are occupied on more important tasks. To avoid offending friends and family, simply tell them that when you are working between certain hours, you will be using your machine so that you can remain focused and efficient.
No one feels good working in the midst of a chaotic environment. Your work area is too messy if you frequently need to waste time looking for things. Organizing your space is another of the activities that promote self-esteem. When you are constantly looking for mis-placed items or papers, the tendency is to feel very inept and unqualified. The easiest trick to address this issue is to simply think about what you most often misplace and choose a spot or file to which you will always return that item.
Throw away anything of no value, such as yesterday’s newspaper and you will continue to feel more in control. Some people plan 10-15 minutes at the beginning or end of each work session to put everything back in place, weed out trash, and schedule the work strategy for the following day. This way you will not allow your work area to get out of control. By organizing and prioritizing both your work space and your living space, you will be completing activities that promote self-esteem. You will feel empowered to handle your daily tasks and confident that you can challenge yourself to even more difficult ones.
