You received a lot of good advice in this thread. I'm always impressed by short answers, that people give to big questions, like the one you asked, especially when those short answers hit the nail on the head and really give you something valuable to work with.
Clint Cora, brought up a good point, of having a hero in your life or modeling yourself after your hero, this can be anyone by the way, either a real person, or even a fictitious character, the point being that you're aiming at "greatness" in your life, which in turn will get your self esteem up.
Another way of saying this, and I quote from the Conversation with God books, is something God said, "Don't be who you thought you were, BE who you wish you were".
This simple "being you who wish you were" can get you out of low self esteem really quick and maybe even change your whole life.
OK, so how does a person do this exactly? You choose someone you admire and then try to be like them a little at a time. Again, in the Conversation with God books, God say's to "go to the highest thought about yourself and then BE that".
I could do on and on, but really, let's keep it short. Don't complicate this whole thing, just do it for fun, this "being who you wish you were", play it as a game at first, and through your own experiences, you'll understand what I'm talking about.
This is just a quick and easy method, you don't have to follow my advice, there are other ways to get this done, and I hope you choose to have fun doing it!!
