Admit that you are human and have the opportunity to learn from your mistakes. Life's experiences permit us to grow and learn not only thru achievements but from listening to others who have been there, passing on your own trials and lessons learned, help someone learn. Every time I pass on some info or lesson or idea that helps someone, my self-esteem grows. I also keep inspirational quotes in my journal that I titled "when needed, look in here". Writing poems about my own fears, joys, lessons have helped me a great deal for when I read them back to myself it is like I am teaching myself, reminding myself that I am growing.
Also, buying a new outfit when I have lost a little weight helps!
