We have already discussed the value of self-esteem: how important it is to success as well as how it is one of the top motivators. We have discussed ways to build our self-esteem, and we have discussed ways that others can deliberately or indeliberately lower our self-esteem. There is another very powerful way to control esteem, and that is by giving it to others.
Giving away esteem is one of those crazy things like love and smiles in that the more you give away, the more you get in return. However, building another’s esteem or self-image is not about what you get, it is about helping others to achieve their full potential and to break any mental limitations they have imposed on themselves. Too many cynical people in this world do nothing but criticize, condemn, complain, and destroy other people’s self-images. As one of the successful people in this world, do your part to restore balance: be a builder of esteem and not a destroyer.
Here are some ways you can build esteem in others.
You can help loved ones, friends, co-workers, and even strangers build their self-esteem. It can be as simple as sharing a sincere compliment. Get in the habit of building up others and being a positive influence on those in your life.
