Raise Your Self-Esteem by Becoming a Better Person

Your Self-Esteem is the estimate you make about yourself. How well equipped are you to deal with life? How worthy are you of its rewards?

The best way to raise your Self-Esteem is to become a better person. Sounds so obvious and self evident. But, it’s amazing how much of our culture tries to avoid that fact, and how much advice and products are sold to help us try to raise our belief in ourselves without having to grow and develop ourselves.

Indeed when we are little we are often taught that no one is better than anyone else and we all deserve a sticker and a star. But the truth is that as we grow up, some of us become better people than others.

A person who is more responsible is better in that respect than a person who is less responsible. A person who acts with more integrity is better in that respect than a person who acts with less integrity. A person who is more productive is better in that respect than a person who is less productive.

Better as in better equipped for life, and more worthy of its rewards.

There is no magic pill. Blowing yourself kisses in the mirror won’t help either. Don’t try to find a shortcut around becoming a better person.
