How Learning From Successes Can Boost Your Self-Esteem

The Most Popular Traffic Exchange

Learning from successes can boost your self-esteem because you can learn more about yourself and your strengths. Virtually everyone excels in at least one area (often more than one area); this can help you to learn where your best skills lie and to do more activities that enable you to take advantage of these advanced skills more often.

When you do something well, you feel a sense of accomplishment, pride, and confidence surge in you because you were able to achieve something that either helped yourself and/or helped others. In many cases, you were the best person for the task and were more easily able to achieve it than other people would have. Therefore, other people will look up to you because you were able to complete the task and/or achieve the feat so quickly and easily as compared to others.

When you are having a difficult time or struggling with challenges, it is important to look back upon your successes and realize that you have the capability of doing great things and succeeding at whatever you are doing. Sometimes, life “throws us a curveball” that makes us uncomfortable and causes us to struggle a bit with tasks that we are not used to completing and have a hard time completing at a high level.

The key is that we must remember that even during these difficult times, we have the capability to adapt and succeed. Reflect back on those times when you’ve had successes, especially those tasks that others struggled and they called upon you to do them. Whether it was an issue with a computer or electronic device, an item at home that needed repairing, or just offering helpful advice to someone dealing with a situation you dealt with before, you were able to succeed where others couldn’t or would have a harder time succeeding.

By reflecting on your past successes and realizing you have the capability to adapt and do many tasks well, you will realize that whatever present challenge you’re facing can be overcome as well. You just have to focus on the task at hand, utilize the lessons you’ve learned from having past successes, and put the work in to overcome the present challenge. By taking time to reflect and learn from your past successes, you can keep your self-esteem during times of great difficulty and be able to overcome virtually any challenge that comes your way.

Myth #1 – I overeat so there’s no way I’ll ever lose fat quickly.

Overeating is mostly the result of stress – when a person is worried, depressed, scared, sad, or anxious overeating is often the result. Decrease your stress and you’ll be surprised at how fast you lose pound. Becoming physically active can lead to a loss in weight.

Myth #2 – My genetics mean I’ll always be overweight.

Being fat isn’t a result of your genetics. Yes some families may have a pattern of being overweight but you can overcome your genes and lose fat quickly. Your genetics don’t control your weight, your lifestyle choices do.

Myth #3 – I’m fat because of a slow metabolism.

It’s true when your thyroid isn’t functioning properly it can slow your metabolism and bring your fat loss to a halt. However most people that believe they have a slow metabolism really don’t. Instead what they have is a need to jump start the body with a combination of good nutrition and aerobic exercise. It’s a simple as a 15 minute brisk walk.

Myth #4 – It’s possible to keep the weight off even with a fad diet.

If you want to quickly lose 10 pounds a fad diet will certainly allow you to accomplish that quickly. But the research indicates that 80% of dieters will actually gain the weight back in 5 years. Worse, you’ll also lose muscle mass and gain back fat. This might explain why society seems to be getting more overweight as the years go by.

Losing the weight using a diet (even a fad diet) isn’t so bad as long as you follow up with healthy lifestyle changes that ensure you keep the weight off.

Myth #5 – I can lose my belly fat doing crunches

Far too many people attempt to get rid of belly fat with no success. What happens is muscle builds under the belly fat and then your belly actually looks bigger. If you want to lose belly fat faster aerobic exercise is the answer – in fact, you’ll lose belly fat as much as 10x faster with cardiac exercises.

Now that we’ve uncovered these 5 myths you’ll be shedding those extra pounds faster than ever.
