Self-esteem is contagious. When you surround yourself with high self-esteem, your self-esteem grows.
Listen to positive music
If you are a person who listens to music a lot, your music becomes brain-washing. Therefore, it is very important that you listen to songs with positive lyrics if you want high self-esteem. Choose songs with lyrics about what a great person you are, that you are beautiful, that you can accomplish anything you want, that you are loved etc. When you do this you surround yourself with high self-esteem.
Choose positive media
Just like it is important to listen to positive music, it is also important to selectively surround yourself by TV programs, magazines, films, radio programs and other media which convey the message that you are great as you are. Unfortunately, much media these days try to tell you that you can only be good enough if you graduate from the right university, eat at the right restaurants, wear the right clothes and date the right kind of people. Censor that kind of media away and only expose yourself to media which makes you feel good enough as you are right now.
Surround yourself by people with high self-esteem
For most people, friends and colleagues (or class mates) are the strongest forces of influence in our lives. Considering how strongly they influence us, it is very important that we choose whom we hang out with. Never hang out with a person in whose company you are not entirely happy just because you want to be nice to that person. When you do that you are not nice to yourself, and this hurts your self- esteem. Only surround yourself by loving and supportive people with high self-esteem.
Liv Miyagawa – The Self-Esteem Coach
My friend, Liv Miyagawa, has it so right. By surrounding yourself with positivity, you will feel more positive.
I find that when I drive to work in the morning and listen to uplifting music, the great mood lasts all day. Also, when I talk to my amazingly positive and loving friends, I get a big boost.
This is a powerful tool for you to use. You can CHOOSE to tap in to these sources and create happiness for yourself.
Keep in mind that you are the average of the 5 people you hang out with most. Hang out with powerful, positive, uplifting people who take responsibility for themselves and their lives, and you will see your life getting brighter, too!
