Eleven seminarsSelf-Acceptance is an Action
Imagine you are standing in front of a full-length mirror. Naked. You have been asked to gaze at yourself for two minutes. Now take a quick inventory of the feelings that were aroused by this suggestion. Did you feel curious or afraid? Interested or hesitant? Willing or unwilling? Or did you reject the whole idea as something you would absolutely never do? Imagining the experience gives you an indication of your level of self-acceptance; actually doing it will tell you even more. Read full story here.

Top 10 Ways to Raise Your Self-Esteem
Self-esteem is not a gift bestowed by those outside of us or something that can be taken from us by others. It's an inside job. Rather than wait passively for good self-esteem to happen, we need to take action. Daily or weekly is best.

1. Make a list. What's good about you? What's wonderful? Hang your list near your bed so that you see it when you awaken and when you go to sleep.

2. Forgive yourself. Acknowledge a mistake, but let go of self-recrimination. Recognize that you, too, are human and "allowed" to fail. Go to full story.
