What does it mean to have high self esteem?

To understand this, consider the following list of high self esteem examples, where you think the following kinds of thoughts about yourself:

  • I'm smart
  • I have a lot going for me
  • I'm interesting
  • I'm attractive
  • I'm likeable
  • I'm talented
  • I'm a great person
  • I'm valuable and important
  • I can achieve incredible things with my life
  • I'm successful achieving things I want to achieve

What causes high self esteem?

So don't waste your time, like many people do, looking for 'external' fixes for attaining high self esteem, like accumulating a lot of wealth, having lots of material possessions, having surgery, having people constantly praise and encourage you, and so on.

Here's the thing: you don't need any of these things in order to think very positively about yourself and your capabilities.

Think about it: you don't need lots of money in order to appreciate your amazing personality, what a good friend you are, your sense of humor, fun, and adventure, and so on.

Similarly, you don't need surgery in order to see attractive qualities and beauty in your looks. If you do decide to get surgery, that's fine, but appreciate that you can already see value in your appearance, and learn to be happy with what you see, before you even start changing the way you look. 

Furthermore, appreciate that even if the entire world hated you, and everyone told you what an awful, worthless person you were, you could still see lots of positive value in yourself and your capabilities, and no one in the world can stop you from doing that. 

This means that you are in a very powerful position, because you have the capability to have very high self esteem, no matter where you are in life and no matter what others think of you, simply by choosing to think very positively about yourself and your abilities.
