When working with clients to increase self esteem, I often ask that they keep running lists in the notes section of their smartphones, entitled 'things I'm good at' and 'things I did right.' Getting into the habit of capturing those moments when we've done ourselves proud can be a useful way of remembering how capable we've demonstrated that we are. Lists like these are especially useful to refer to in moments when we are criticised, or our self-belief takes a knock. I'm a great believer in that people who know what they're good at are happy to admit what they're not-so-good at, thus putting them in a better position to accept feedback and develop without letting it impact their self confidence negatively. As a starting point it can help to think about what and strengths we admire in others and consider when we've demonstrated these things. A lot of the time we realise that the characteristics that make us proud of other people are ones that we possess ourselves!
