Reinforcing Self Esteem at Home

Your home should be a place of peace and refuge where you can find rest and solace in order to recharge from the events of the day. This refuge is especially important when it comes to reinforcing your self esteem.

Each day, our self esteem suffers from drastic blows from friends, family members, coworkers, spouses, children, school mates, or even perfect strangers. Instead of allowing yourself to become entrenched in feelings of self loathing or self doubt, take time to reinforce your self esteem in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Know that you home is a refuge for your body, mind, and spirit so that you can devote the necessary attention to yourself.

When dealing with reinforcing your self esteem in the comfort of your own home, consider creating a space that is only for you. Take a private corner, cozy niche, or spare room and create your own private oasis.

Each individual will have a different idea of an area that is totally relaxing, calming, and reenergizing to him or her.

Maybe you see a sparse Asian-inspired area where you can practice your tai chi and meditation in order to rebuild and replenish your spirit.

Perhaps your idea of a private sanctuary is a plot of land where you work in tune with nature to care for terrific plants of all species and types.

Maybe your private oasis is a cozy reading nook filled with books, a comfortable chair, and good quality reading light.

Whatever your space looks like, ensure it is made especially for you. Instruct your spouse, children, siblings, family members, or roommates to avoid your special space so that you can maintain the personal and private feeling.

Also, instruct anyone who shares you home not to bother you while you are in your personal oasis.

Attempt to create an atmosphere absent of distractions like the telephone, computer, or television.

Other ways to reinforce your self esteem while at home may seem silly or trivial, but will make your feel better about yourself and your strengths. Leave a message for yourself or a family member every morning on the bathroom member. Include compliments and praise in this message in order to reinforce your own or another person's self esteem.

If you live with someone else, take turns leaving each other notes so that you can both assist each other in this task. Also, place tokens or items that remind you of your achievements in prominent places around your home.

These tokens can include ribbons, trophies, certificates, rewards, photographs, or special memorabilia from an important time in your life. Ensure these items are in a place that you are sure to see daily.

Your refrigerator door is a great place to post self esteem boosting items, since you are sure to visit the fridge at least once a day. Additionally, the bathroom mirror is an excellent spot since most individuals will at least take one glimpse in the mirror before leaving for the day.

An excellent way to reinforce your self esteem is to praise yourself for goals accomplished. Even something as simple as losing a couple pounds should be celebrated in order for the accomplishment of the goal to become a reality.

When you accomplish a large goal that you worked very diligently to work towards, plan a party. This is an excellent idea to plan a festive event in order to celebrate with your friends and family members. Your self esteem is sure to be boosted after a fabulous party thrown in your honor! These tips are excellent methods to reinforcing your self esteem in the comfort of your own home.

Confidence and Persuasion

Necessary Qualities of a Good Persuader

Persuasion is asserting your will over others. In this definition, the concept of power comes in. Power is the ability of a person to put his will over others or over his followers. But in persuasion, no full power should be applied. The persuader should learn to be humble to accomplish his objective, so that the persuadee may give in. Therefore, the qualities of a persuader must come from opposite ends. He must be positive-minded but open to negative results; he must be insistent but must also know how to compromise.

Let us look at the essential qualities a good persuader must have.

First, he must learn to balance both sides. In the middle of a discussion, he should not always place too much emphasis on the advantages he will get from the deal.
