Your-self-esteem begins with you establishing and maintaining a healthy attitude towards self. Most times you want to get something or do something on the inside of you. For example, you want to show love towards yourself by doing good things for yourself. This includes spending good private time, good information, good technology, good money on yourself and with other good people. But you frequently discover that there is a tendency that forces you to go express the love you should be firstly expressing towards yourself, towards others. Thus you are looking on the outside of you. However, initially, you need to look on the inside. It requires boldness, courage and commitment to just sit down and try and skill or re-skill yourself about you. Get to know more about you, your attitude towards you, your feelings towards you, your perceptions of you and what or who you really present when you go out there. This all starts with a healthy attitude towards you, which says something like: "I am wonderful." "I am beautiful or handsome." "I look good, I feel good, I have a good mood, I am a balanced person." and so on.
The collection of personal qualities in the "soccer ball" above should indicate to you the need for a balanced approach to your self awareness development of your qualities. This includes moving your-self-esteem to a state of maturity that you yourself appreciates first. This will require you to spend time with you. Frequently you are somewhere busy slaving around and never getting to a point of rest, that is self-rest, which allows you to begin to pay real and detailed attention to yourself.
A simple reason to boost your attitude towards self is to see yourself a special precious possession who is here on earth on a worthwhile mission - to make a difference. Do not try to express any quality towards another that you have not first expressed towards yourself. That is what your self esteem would say to you if you are able hear. Whatever or however you describe the difference you are here to make is your own creativity and innovation. The question is are you talking, relating, thinking, and acting like a precious possession? As a precious possession you belong to someone who supplies all what you need. Are you accessing that someone from your-secret-place? If you are not then you are short changing yourself and depriving your mission from the best of the best.
To get to your best you should periodically do a personal check of all your personal qualities development. Even if self awareness development situations are the best test environment, it is useful to do dry runs or answer questionnaires or undertake practice lessons or test drives so that you identify explicit areas for your own development. You assess and evaluate what goals on your self-esteem have been achieved and how far you or your team are from getting to the rest of your goals. Your aim should be to refresh yourself and refuel your energies in a manner such as self-criticism. One way to assess your self-esteem is to evaluate a set of aspects you have interest in, such as the example here (note: will open in a new window). It pays to do a compacted set of work for a given timeline (for example, a month, or a few weeks) and then to take stock where you are and then do another compacted set of work, something like a short burst.
