A good Self esteem is when you feel good about yourself and start being optimistic; When all those positive thoughts show dominance over the negative thoughts.
Self esteem issues make it harder for you to succeed and be good at what you do. How do you raise your self esteem and make life easier?
1. Stop comparing yourself to others.

Even if you are not getting any promotions, stop thinking that the rest are better than you.
2. Compliment yourself regularly.
Look in the mirror and say something you like about yourself. Many times, we’re quick to compliment others on their success but hesitate to do the same for ourselves. Its time you start appreciating yourself.
Affirmations can be a good way to express positive feelings about you. For example, “I am beautiful. I am self driven.”
