Youth has this dilemma and no one is talking about it. And I think this is very important issue that needs to be addressed. Self Esteem! Majority of our youth have identity crises. They don't even know their worth. The thing that buying expensive outfit or expensive gadgets will determine their value. Which I think is not true.
It is so important to see how we look ourselves. If you don't see yourself a positive person then you can't contribute in society with the positive way. The way you look yourself affects the work you do. People will look at you the way you look yourself. If you see yourself as a loser people will see you as a loser too. And if you see yourself as a confident guy people will see you as a confident person too.
It depends on how you project yourself. Do you project yourself as a positive individual ? Do you project yourself as a confident individual? Or you project yourself as a guy who can be easily manipulated?
For example, so called influencers can easily manipulate their audience. They can't control or manipulate the person with the better self esteem. Do you believe that change can't be brought by majority. A individual can bring change and then majority will follow him.
An individual can change the world. You can change the world. Just be yourself. Respect yourself. Project yourself the way you want. Don't project yourself on the basis of the standard made by other. Make your own standards and project yourself the way you want. Materialistic things can't project your standard.
In a commercial of a car brand, they say "Let your Lexus speak for you" I said, "Why" ? Why would you want a piece of matel to speak for you? Are you not even confident to speak for yourself? Your outfit and your gadgets cant tell your worth. Only Your intellectual capacity can tell your value.
Unfortunately we are living in an era of more and more. Today people have more money but less happiness. We have more medicines but less healthy people. We have more food but less satisfaction. We have so many things but we have less value.
If you believe in yourself, if you respect yourself and if you develop your self-esteem then people automatically will respect you.
You can improve your self esteem by practicing some following points.
Always believe in yourself and respect yourself. Did you noticed when you do a good work, you hear your inner voice telling you "good job 👍" ?. That's you. Respect him. Exercise praising yourself on good things you do.
For example: What if I ask you to write 3 things you like in yourself.?
Don't Compare Yourself With Other
Don't ever compare yourself with others. Everyone has his own intellectual capacity. Instead of comparing yourself with him try to think that you can do better than him.
Always be motivated, read motivational books, watch motivational movies, build confidence, set goals and then try to achieve them.
Perfection Is Unrealistic
Try to be perfect but always remember that perfection is unrealistic. Nobody is perfect here in this world.
Mistake Is Ok
Always remember that its ok to do mistakes. Everyone make mistakes. But the best thing is to accept mistakes.
Know What You Can Do
You never lose either you win or you learn. Try to know what best you can do. Do your best and leave the result on God.
Do What Gives You Pleasure
Always do what make you happy. This pleasure make you think positive and you can be more productive.
Celebrate Small Achievements
Always celebrate small achievements. Again celebrating small achievements make you think positive and you will be more productive.
Be With Positive People
You can't do anything living with the negative people even if you are positive person. So always try to make friends with the positive mind set.
