Boost Your Self-Esteem Through Personal Growth

esteemPeople often think of a new job, a new house, a relocation, or a new year as an exciting opportunity to reinvent themselves. But there’s no reason to wait for a big moment to reinvent yourself. A recent article on Fast Company titled “How To Turn Reinventing Yourself into a Daily Habit” discusses how personal growth leads to a greater sense of well-being, an increase in job satisfaction, and an overall increase in self-esteem. If personal growth is so beneficial, why not make seeking it out a daily habit?

If someone says to you, “So, tell me about yourself,” what’s the first thing you tell them? It’s likely what you do for a living. Career is a huge part of many people’s identities. And if you define yourself by your career, work is the perfect place to add experiences that will impact your sense of self.

You can’t go after a big promotion or enroll in a new degree program every day, so focus on the details that will give you a different perspective in the workplace or in your personal life. For example, decide to learn a new skill like a computer program you haven’t yet tackled. Or get started on Instagram so you’ll finally know what it’s all about. Alternatively, seek out someone in the workplace or someone you run into on your daily commute and strike up a conversation. You might end up with a friend or an interesting professional collaboration.

By engaging in these small means of striving toward personal growth, you’ll reignite your excitement for your career or put a spring back in your step as you look forward to each day. This excitement will spill over into other aspects of your life and increase your feeling of well-being.
