Building Self Esteem activities (very POWERFUL)

Hey guys and gals, welcome to my site. I’m Clark, and on this page I would like to share with you some building self esteem activities that I feel have a really powerful impact on me. What you believe about yourself affects EVERYTHING, from how you approach what you’re currently working on, how comfortable you are around people, plus your luck even. People who think well of themselves are generally luckier!

Reading Self Help Books

Whenever I feel down, I read a (good) personal development book. Doing something to improve an area of your life that you feel has been lacking for some time is a sure way of making you hope and improve your self-esteem. Nowadays, in addition to books there are countless audios and webinars that you can listen to and attend online.

Don’t binge, rather a good self-improvement book should be savored little by little so that you have time to ingest the messages that the book is trying to convey to you. Take time to reflect upon the words of the author, and to apply the practices that were recommended.

What book you should be reading really depends on where you are. That is what I believe. Some of the best ones I have read include The Secret, The Master Key System, The Power of Now, Ask and It Is Given, just to name a few. It is my preference to focus on just one book at a time. Finish it and then go on to the next one, to avoid confusion. Plus, the terminologies that each author uses might be different and if I’m concentrating on multiple books, it might cause confusion. That’s what I think anyway.

Say No More Often

Always put yourself first, because you’re no use to anyone if you’re drained of energy, or not feeling motivated to do anything. You can still be respectful, but know your worth and be firm when someone is trying to take advantage of you.

When you say no more often, you allow yourself to focus more on the things that are important to you, while avoiding tasks that you don’t feel excited to do. At the same time, you would be teaching others to respect your boundaries.


You know that meditation quietens your mind, relaxes you, enables you to sleep better, increases your focus and creativity, increases brain power, and have many more benefits. I have found that it also indirectly raises my self-esteem.

The act of meditating is said to raise your energy and emotions, because by quieting your thoughts and truly relaxing and leaving your troubles behind, you’re automatically removing your resistance to the energy of the Universe. This resistance comes from your negative thoughts and feelings borne from unhealthily focusing on the problems and negativity in your life. Instead, by meditating you’re allowing the energy and wisdom of the Universe (or your Inner Being, or Source) to come to you.

And when you’re feeling fresh, energetic, good, happy and joyful, you’ll feel better about yourself and your abilities to handle any problems. But very often, when you’re in that relaxed and joyful state, the solutions to your problems would come to you without you having to really make an effort to sort them out.

“You Are Enough”

I listened to a webinar, and the speakers talk about how cultures nowadays propagate the idea of lack. Lack of resources, lack of time, lack of talents, and this idea then extends to areas of your life. You don’t get enough love, you don’t have enough money, you’re not good enough… And when you leave your office, you feel that you’ve not done much today. Your first thought after waking up from sleep in the morning is “I didn’t get enough sleep”.

Instead, repeat to yourself “I am enough”, “I am good enough”, “I have done enough”, or variations of them, and really feel that what you’re repeating to yourself is true. The power is in the feelings. Do this until you believe what you’re saying deep in your heart. Start to change your perspective (it might feel fake at first, but keep at it) and you’ll find that you have changed from your core to become more confident, more self-assured and more at peace.
