Charisma has always been the privilege of leaders, personalities and people of extreme self-confidence. To build a character that blossoms an attitude of determination and presence is to nurture self-respect and learn self-respect.

Uniqueness is now becoming a space where an individuality can fully exist in the world while remaining part of it. It inspires the seed of genius within each of us to find the strength to come out and blossom as the unique flower it is intended to flourish in the garden of the world.
Self-esteem isn’t the easiest lesson to learn but while it may not be easy, it is possible and the only ultimate way to live the truth of your life. In this article, we are presenting you with 5 ways to boost your sense of self-esteem and help you set your strength in what represents the foundation to your presence.
1 – A Shot of Clarity
Most of the human being’s inability to stand as different and unique comes from the confusion that overwhelms his mind when it comes to himself. Too many outside expectations, rules and limitations and not enough of self-inquiry, self-discovery and self-understanding are at the source of the lack of inner-strength essential to self-esteem. Allow yourself to detach from what others expect from you and attach your motivation to unveil and reveal the very nature of your individual personality. Discover the strength and the weakness that makes you, the only YOU. Bring Clarity to your Life by enlightening your mind with your very own sense of self. When you know who you are, what you become is the beholder of the light with which you were first entrusted and the beacon that makes your uniqueness a lighthouse for another.
2 – A Shot of Humility
One of the few assets of true self-esteem lies in the virtue of humility. What is strong requires nothing to shine. It does so by the simple principle of effortless presence. Cultivating your sense of humility is an amazing way to evaluate your need for outside validation and recognition. Presence is rooted in simple presence and presence is only a sense of being-ness linked to Truth. This Truth is held within the self and humility is its most faithful guardian. Self-esteem is the work you must repeat with humility in order to access your Truth.
3 – A Shot of Integrity
There is nothing more building for self-esteem than the ability to align one’s truth, one’s emotion, one’s thought and one’s deed. Indeed, this is the basic foundation of presence. Integrity is such a necessity for the foundation of self-esteem that unless you give yourself enough courage to always be true you your Truth, you will fall from your stand. Stand your ground and build your self-esteem from core to action. Be a man or a woman of values and always take a moment to wonder if the choice you are about to make fully reflect the person you know yourself to be.
4 – A Shot of Sovereignity
The acceptance of your own awesomeness is one of the fundamentals of self-esteem. The reason for this statement lies in the fact that one cannot expect to grow his/her sense of worthiness unless he or she gives himself/herself permission to be awesome by nature. This is an immutable law of nature. You were born unique, free and empowered. You must find the sovereignty of this thought and fully remember this truth about you and all of those around you.
5 – A Shot of Amity
Self-respect begins with friendship. It flourishes from the connection one has with himself or herself. It is the deep connection between the soul and the mind that enable self-esteem to grow its roots as the foundation for confidence and its branches as the blossoming for self-expression. Allow yourself to meet your own self and become your best friend. What you can accept, forgive, love and understand about yourself is what you can share with the world in complete boldness and assurance. Amity is a mutual understanding and a peaceful relationship. Create a space of inner-peace within you so that you grow your self-esteem on a soil that is filled with harmony and unity. Seed your strength in a ground made of stability, flexibility and bridges between both.
