Everybody faces hurdles in life; the difference is some emerge stronger as they overcome them, while some just easily give up. Hurdles are same for everyone. Besides the skill, what decides whether a person is a loser or a winner is his self-esteem. High self-esteem provides one the motivation to give his best when faced with any situation in life.

What a person with high self-esteem sees is his strengths rather than his flaws. Causes of low esteem may be many, however the good news is that self-esteem can be built, not only for kids but also for adults. Here are some activities that will help one see one’s strengths and boost faith in one’s capabilities.

Focus on Positive Attributes
Focus on Positive Attributes
The first step towards building self-esteem is to view oneself in positive light. We lack self-esteem because we either fail to realize our positive traits or have lost sight of them. The activity is to list down at least five talents or positive traits of yours.
Write your talents on a colored sheet of paper and paste it on your cupboard. Write them in big font letters so that they are visible even from a distance. You could let this list be stuck right across on your cupboard so that you can see it often or you could take it a step further by converting it to some fun activity. To do that, make seven boxes across every trait, each box corresponding to a day of the week. Put a star in the box for the day when you score on a particular trait. To begin with, let the positive points be character traits like honesty, hardworking or truthfulness, as the chances of enacting these positive points is greater than specific talents like singing or dancing.
