Want to raise your self-esteem? Find and do your meaningful work!
Meaningful work will raise your self-esteem faster than all the self-help strategies in the world!!
And while we’re on the subject of self-esteem, a pet peeve of mine is discussing self-esteem as a noun. This focuses on the problem. Using it as a verb focuses on the solution!
You esteem yourself every day when you get up in the morning and begin your work. Don’t forget that!
If you haven’t yet found your work, start by doing something hard that you have always really wanted to do — see how much work it is — also notice how much better you feel!
Make sure you rest and play and do things that are easy in between your periods of work so that your creativity and stamina circuits have time to repair themselves.

And, BTW, lots of sleep is essential for North Star living.
