Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment.

Self-Doubt

I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure.

I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, “My back hurts, my feet hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.”

We alle have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.

How to build up self esteem

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Ever found yourself lacking self-esteem or having trouble doing certain tasks that you felt you should be able to do?

I have a cure for that. Challenge yourself! Chose any given task that is a personal challenge, may it be going to the club alone, talking to strangers, building something, jumping out of a plane, whatever it is that you are scared of.

Take this task/challenge and go for it! Embrace your fear, embrace your uncomfortable feeling! You will push through, you will suceed and finally you will feel great, comfortable, full of self-esteem and courage.

Every once in a while you have to achieve tasks, you have to prove to yourself: I can do it! If your job or your hobbies don’t give you this good feeling of having achieved something than you have to add it to your life in other ways.

This is for example why video games or games in general are so popular. Achieving stuff, no matter how small, lets us grow as persons. We show ourselves and others: I still got it, I can learn to do something that I was not able to do before, I am awesome!

I dare you. I double-dare you! Go out and prove to yourself that you are in fact awesome!
