When you understand your eternal worth and you live in a way consistent with your divine heritage, you will gain a lasting self-esteem that is better than anything the world can offer. Read on to find out how to improve your self-confidence.

1. Know who you are

Knowing who you are, a child of God, will make you strong and steadfast in your beliefs and responsibilities. You will have the courage to stand up for what you know to be right and be confident in the decisions you make. Watch this video to understand your self-worth better:

2. Surround yourself with people who love you

The people who love you can help you get to where you want to go, help you be happy, and encourage you to be your best. Recognize your worth and don’t put yourself down or allow others to. Establish a relationship with God through prayer. Click here to chat with a Mormon about God’s love for His children.

3. Make achievable goals for yourself

Set goals for yourself and acknowledge your achievements, even the small ones.

4. Focus on the positive, not the negative

Focus on what is going right in your life and not on what isn’t. “Comparing blessings is almost certain to drive out joy. We cannot be grateful and envious at the same time. If we truly want to have the Spirit of the Lord and experience joy and happiness, we should rejoice in our blessings and be grateful.” —Elder Quentin L. Cook

In the end, loving yourself is not about tooting your own horn or conforming to the world’s view of self-esteem. It’s about being who you are—a unique child of God—and knowing that who you are is a good thing. When you understand your eternal worth and you live in a way consistent with your divine heritage, you will gain a lasting self-esteem that is better than anything the world can offer.
