It is unfortunate that many people get caught up in insecurities, doubts and fears. They feel as if they were not good enough to do the one thing they want to accomplish. They end up comparing themselves to others and looking at other people’s lives from the outside convincing themselves that being in that person’s shoes would mean having a better quality of life. It’s truly regrettable and sad how some people can underestimate their self- worth!
Are you one of these people? Have you ever gone to a party and seen somebody looking totally flawless and capturing everyone’s attention, only to find yourself thinking that such a person ought to have a wonderful life? Or have you ever compared yourself and your abilities to those of friends or colleagues of yours who from your perspective seem to be doing much better than you in life?
Insecurities and low self-esteem are generally the cause for people to feel uncomfortable in their own skin and have the desire to be living the lives of others around. Frequently, these insecurities get the best out of them. Worse yet, they may end up losing hope in their ability to improve or create a better life experience for themselves.
Even though it may sound somewhat cliche, you are actually much better off than you are allowing yourself to believe. The first step is to become aware of your personal qualities, talents and experiences and then realize that each one of us has an exceptional way to excel based on our uniqueness. When you commit to continuous self-improvement, you will eventually be lead to recognize and expand your self worth as well as the value you have in and for society.
An easy way to engage in self improvement is by talking to a friend you trust. Find someone who you know will listen to you and can also give you constructive criticism about your behaviors and attitudes. A true friend can be a wonderful ally that gives feedback which you can use to improve yourself.
You can also take your self improvement a step further. Make it a habit to read inspiring stories, self development books and personal growth material. There is a multitude of resources both, on and offline.
The last thing you want to do is see yourself as an insignificant human being and compare yourself to those you see around you. Remember, we are all different and unique, and as such, comparisons are pointless. Beware of petty thoughts and negative self-talk. Do not engage the little voice inside which tries to convince you that your life would be much better if you were thinner, richer, lived in a different part of the world or whatever applies to your life situation. Make the most of the “you” that was handed to you at birth. Commit to work on your self-improvement for your finer qualities to shine out while the less finer qualities are being smoothed over.
Remember it is all about loving yourself and your imperfections. Once you accept this and acknowledge that you are striving to be your best, you will start seeing improvements and begin to feel contented with your life as it unfolds.
Build your self esteem to get the self confidence to excel at anything in life. Learn to love yourself and improve your life! – http://www.tools-for-abundance.com/Love_Yourself.html
