Raise Your Self-Esteem By Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone

It’s really easy to get into a routine and then get too comfortable. This can especially be the case if you do the same thing everyday. As I said in my last post, self-esteem issues can sometimes be at the root of resistance to change. You may be reluctant to live or work outside your comfort zone when you don’t believe in yourself.

Fear is usually at the basis of low self-esteem issues and reluctance to change.  The good news is that simply by shining a spotlight on the fear you’re giving it less power over you. You’re basically taking back your life.

What most people don’t realize is that any time you’re trying to change, there will be obstacles. Sometimes it can even feel like the more you want to change, the most roadblocks come your way. If this is the case, try examining your beliefs about change. Remember, a belief is only true because you accept it as true. The moment you start to believe something different, different experiences will come your way.

That’s way persistence is one of the keys to change—as well as an unwavering belief in yourself. Here are some steps you can use to identify self-esteem issues and get on the road to change:

  • Try to identify the areas that are affecting your self-esteem and sense of self-worth. (What are your internal voices saying to you about change?)
  • Take inventory of your internal messages that tie into your self-esteem and self-worth (Are they true?) Some of them have been there for life and put there by someone else.
  • Identify the fears and barriers to your success (one of the more popular fears is the fear of success!)
  • Write a list of your positive attributes in all aspects of your life.
  • Write a list of goals that you have envisioned but did not think were achievable based on your old patterns of self-esteem.
  • Write out a timeline and specific steps to take to achieve those goals now.
  • Share your goals with someone you trust and who will check in with you to help motivate and keep you on track.
