“Your soul will never be fully nourished by anyone’s love by your own. —Dominee

Low self-esteem will put the brakes on your dreams.

Do you feel intuitively called to achieve your big goals, but your lack of self-esteem is keeping you from generating the momentum to propel you forward? 

You are not alone. This is something that so many people struggle with and has become the foundation to all of the work that we do – helping people to embrace their self-love so that they can elevate their lives in a powerful way. 

In last week’s video, we shared how low self-esteem can lead to anxiety, so in this live episode of The Elevated Life® we tackle the topic of up-leveling your confidence and strengthening your self-esteem. Watch the video to learn 4 ways to embrace self-love and take your self-esteem to new heights.

1. Be Yourself/Be Authentic

So many people are unable to be their true selves because of the negative outside influences they’ve heard their whole life. From the bully in the school yard to the critical parent to the emotionally abusive ex-lover, we can be deeply affected by the judgments of others.

Have you ever tried to turn yourself into someone else so that another person will love you? This is a pattern that creates resentment and pain in the long run. 

It’s important to be your authentic self 100% of the time. If this is something you struggle with, tune into my “Awaken Your Authentic Self” free video series. You’ll walk away knowing exactly who you are.

2. Be Your Own Cheerleader/Stop Negative Self-Talk

Your inner dialogue will dictate the rest of your life, so take a good look at the stories you’re telling yourself. 

This negative self-talk is even more destructive when you speak the words out loud.

Make a commitment to yourself now that you will never say something bad about yourself to someone else ever again.

3. Be Assertive/Set and Enforce Boundaries

It’s time to say goodbye to people-pleasing for good!

Set firm boundaries and stick to them, without feeling bad about it! Think about all of the boundaries that you have to stick to for other people – like laws and rules were expected to obey and “invisible” boundaries that society places on us.

It’s just as important to have these boundaries for yourself, and when you do, you are reinforcing your self-worth!

4. Invest in Yourself

Stop buying shoes and cars to make yourself feel fulfilled! If you want to find true inner fulfillment, invest in yourself with time, energy, and self-development.

As Chris says “The best money I’ve spent in my life, is the money I’ve spent on myself.”

Remember, at the end of our lives, the only thing we take with us is our experiences.

That’s why an investment of time and energy is one of the most powerful investments you can make.

In this episode, we also talked about:

💜 The negative mantra I used to tell myself all the time, and how it kept me from achieving my goals.

💜 Why Chris never answers phone calls, even from good friends!

💜 What happens when you stop looking to others for love, and start looking inward.

Tune in and let us know in the comments below which tips you’re going to put into practice.

We all know great leaders take on a TON of responsibility.

Hell, they can handle it. It’s what separates them from the rest of the herd.

But just because we can do something, doesn’t always mean we have to or even need to.

Otherwise, we end up working 80+ hours a week and wondering where life went.

Or we parent so hard, we neglect our own self-care.

Aren’t you fed up trying to juggle everything?

It’s easy to fixate solely on the needs of people around us or even our own blind ambitions.

But you can’t live that way for too long.

Life is a balancing act.

If done right, we feel fulfilled in our relationships, our personal needs, our financial life, and our spiritual pursuits.

If we get even a portion of it wrong, we end up overwhelmed, undernourished, and on the brink of breaking down.
