Is increasing your self-esteem one of your resolutions this year? Self-esteem or confidence is all about being comfortable of who we are, believing in ourselves and having the courage to live our wildest dreams.

  • Wait for others to congratulate you on your achievements


  • Govern your behaviour based on what other people think
  • Remain in your comfort zone, fear failure and avoid risks
  • Work hard to cover the mistakes and pray that you can fix the problem before anyone wiser speaks up
  • Dismiss compliments offhandedly
  • Boast your achievements soonest possible to everyone


Flaunt your rock solid confidence
Get rid of that detrimental, insecure feeling and start living now. Here are some great steps to exuding an admirable confidence:

  • Make a list of all your strong points and compliments you have received, no matter how insignificant you think they are. Then, acknowledge them.
  • Develop and take your strengths to the next level.
  • Stay away from negative thoughts and surround yourself with positive, confident and successful people.
  • Stop comparing yourself to other people. Nobody is perfect and everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way.
  • Practise basic self-care. Get enough sleep, eat healthy fashion, get regular exercise, practice good hygiene, and so fort.
  • Reward yourself – whether it is by taking the night off to celebrate good grades, spend time with a friend, or compliment yourself for making that hard phone call.
  • Do things you enjoy or are passionate about such as art, music, writing and gardening.
  • Forgive yourself when things did not turn out as expected.
