Before I head into my weekend I’d just like to quickly share three things. Not
things I have started doing but things I have simply stopped doing (or at least
minimized as much as I can).
Doing that has done wonders for the happiness in my life and for my own
1. Stop obeying inhuman standards.
Don’t keep falling into the very common trap of trying to live up to perfect
Accept that you are human and so are everyone else.
Everything and everyone has flaws and things don’t always go as planned. You can
still improve things but they will never be perfect.
And realize that you won’t be rejected if things or you aren’t perfect. At least not
by reasonably well-balanced human beings, like most people actually are in
2. Stop comparing yourself to other people and what they have.
One very common and destructive daily habit is to constantly compare your life
and yourself to other people and their lives. You compare cars, houses, jobs, shoes,
money, relationships, social popularity and so on.
And at the end of the day you pummel your self-esteem to the ground and you
create a lot of negative feelings within.
3. Stop being a bad friend to yourself.
When you stumble or fall don’t treat yourself like a bad friend or a jerk of a boss
Instead, ask yourself how your best friend/parent would support and help you in
this situation and do that.
This simple shift in perspective can do a whole lot of good.
Take care and be kind to yourself,
P.S: If you want to create many more habits that promote healthy self-esteem,
replace and overcome the issues that bring your self-esteem down (like
perfectionism and unassertiveness) and stop holding yourself back from what
you deep down want in life then have a look at my most popular product,
