Because one is able to regard themselves with high esteem, the person is able to possess more self confidence
which can be extremely useful when trying to achieve success in life. Below are
a few guidelines on how to go about creating effective and powerful affirmations to help boost one’s self
1) What is your basis for a high self esteem?
Before anything else, you must first have a clear grasp of your standards. You cannot simply have a high regard
for yourself because you like it. Without it, you cannot have a basis of when you could already regard yourself as
a person with high self esteem.
To do this, think about the person that, to you, has high self esteem and exudes self confidence. Then, think
about the qualities he possesses: What are his characteristics? What are the things he does? How does he act? Be
sure to be very specific with your list.
2) How should you structure your positive affirmations?

in the evening. Doing this can essentially help you train your mind and body to do the things that you are telling
it to until it becomes a habit.
If you want effective results, be sure to do it consistently and not on an on-and-off basis. Even better, use
your positive affirmations on yourself, in front of the mirror. Look yourself straight into the eyes and say the
affirmations out loud. You do not have to use a strict and stern voice but you have to remind yourself that you
