In order to build esteem it is always helpful to push your limits, step out of your comfort zone, follow through on your decisions and be consistent in the positive changes you choose to make in your life.
Because it will remind you of your strength, your ability to do the things that you may have doubted, to feel proud of yourself and because you need to remind yourself just how amazing and capable you truly are.
It is easy to get stuck in a mundane routine, to be in a job with no prospects of challenge or growth and it is all comfortable and familiar. But it does nothing for your self-esteem.
The fear of the unknown can be crippling and keeps us in situations that no longer serve our best interests, that do not allow us to reach our potential and that do not make us feel happy or fulfilled.
Do not let this fear stop you from living.
If you make a decision, follow through. Be consistent. Choose to stand by them no matter how many niggling self-doubt thoughts pop-up.
You have to have your own back, be on your own team and trust your decisions and instinct without faltering.
If you want a healthier lifestyle, commit to it. Going to the gym or trying a new exercise class might not be your thing, but stepping out of your comfort zone might just surprise you in the best way possible.
Pushing yours limits while listening to your instincts will allow you to trust your decision time and time again and will do wonders for your self-esteem.
You have to trust that you know yourself better than anyone else. That you will do things for your best interests. That failure is a part of life but that doesn’t mean you have failed yourself.
Because life is not about one bad moment or experience, but all the little and big achievements you make every day and all the experiences that have shaped you into the amazing person you are today, if only you choose to see it.
There are no guarantees of what tomorrow will bring, but as long as you have you and have your own back, I know you will get through it all!
