Greet each one you meet with love in your heart

Continuing with the old self esteem series we get to one of my favorite posts: Some people are concerned that having high self-esteem is the equivalent of being narcissistic. However, this is far from the truth. It is impossible to love others without loving yourself. And the corollary is just as true. It is absolutely […]

Ask for something and boost your self-esteem

I used to be very shy and lost out on so many opportunities thanks to this shyness. Even now in somethings I do not go for things that I should, so this is something that I need. If you remember the following, “What do I have to lose if they say no,” you increase your […]

Learn a new skill and boost your self-esteem

Earlier I mentioned about using libraries to learn things and improve your mind thus boosting your self esteem. This is another of those old posts I’m transferring to the blog.

Visit a cemetery and boost your self-esteem

Once more I’m transferring posts written in 1999-2001 in a series called 365v ways to boost your self esteem. As I mentioned in the last post on not making New year’s resolution, I do not wish to set myself up for failure by having a goal of transferring one of these posts each day of […]

I […]

Spend some time alone and boost your self-esteem

Loneliness is such a drag! Jimmy Hendrix Loneliness is enforced, solitude is being alone by intention.

Objectively what is the difference between these two? Think about it: we are spending […]

Stay in bed late and boost your self-esteem

In the last post I mentioned the Hawthorn effect and what it may mean to your self-esteem. So here is an old post which is based on the Hawthorn effect: There are so many little things you can do for yourself which can do your self-esteem so much good. One of these is to sleep […]

Hawthorn effect and self esteem

Self esteem is a measure of how worthy one feels and how deserving of love, joy, happiness, success, and similar positive things.

Give yourself compliments and boost your self-esteem

This complements the previous post on thanking those who complement you: The next step after managing to accept complements gracefully, and after learning to give others complements is to give yourself complements.
