Self Esteem - 4 Powerful Thoughts To Boost Up Your Self-Esteem!

Dec 24, 2007
None of us is born with a destiny to fail. As children we are not aware of where we exactly fit in into society. But as we reach around teenage we become aware of our appearances and of our position in society. Some who feel that they are inferior to other people around them can get stuck in such a frame of mind for the rest of their lives. It is not always about physical appearances or what we look like. We sometimes get negative feedback from people around us on other aspects of our lives, like how we perform, how we work at things like that. These comments if taken too seriously can have a heavy negative impact on the human mind.

When we find our selves in such a position in life, it is time to turn things around. Get into positive thinking by attending seminars and reading books by counselors. You could even keep a few quotes in mind, to rely on when you are feeling down. They really can give you comfort. Here are a few of them:

A. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new: These are the words of Albert Einstein, one of the most intelligent minds the human race has ever seen. This quotation encourages one to believe that failure can only mean that you are a step closer to success. So do not let your mistakes get you down, get right back on track and you will succeed the next time.

B. No one can make you feel inferior without your permission: These are words from one of the most successful Presidents of the United States of America, Eleanor Roosevelt. These words tell us that we sometimes tend to give people too much importance. If you do not take some body too importantly in your life, how could their words ever hurt you? So, refrain from listening to the words which are obviously designed to hurt you and cause you pain and misery.

C. There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. True nobility is in being superior to your own previous self: This is a translation of a beautiful Hindu proverb from India. It keeps one from becoming proud, and this can happen if your self esteem becomes a little higher than it really should be. So only compare your self with what you were, not with somebody who is fighting his own battles. We all have different issues to overcome, and just because you overcome a few of your own issues doesn't mean you have become better than the rest. This should never be the goal.

D. You yourself, as much as anybody in the universe deserve your love and affection: These are words of the Buddha, founder of the religion Buddhism. These words ask us to love ourselves first and then love others. How can you give love when you have none of it in you?
