Thinking about what to do on SELF-Awareness Sunday I have come to realise that Self-awareness has a lot to do with self-esteem. That is not something we often learn: To esteem ourselves. To like and admire who we are and who we have become. To our struggles in a positive way.

If we’d asked other’s about ourselves, they would say many positive things that we just can’t see or feel. Niko Everett has worked on exactly that problem with herself and others and she has come up with simple four steps to help build your self-esteem:

  • Surround yourself with people who make you feel good
  • Turn up the volume on positive thoughts about yourself and delete the negative ones
  • Tell the people around you the positive things you see in them
  • When you receive a compliment, just say: “Thank you!”

Niko Everett tells in more detail about this how this program came to be in this TEDx Youth Talk:
