What is self-esteem? It is a psychological term which reflects a person's overall evaluation or appraisal of his/her own worth. So to boost confidence of someone, first thing that should be taken into consideration is to find out the emotional point to which the person responds. Then use that point to build up a good and firm confidence by using various related talks, movies etc. ~cheerio~

I suggest you a simple exercise.Sit calmly take a white paper and draw a line straight one one side list out what you possess, I mean the materialistic things what you have.You will see you have better acquired than many people.Next write your positive qualities and strengths. On the others side you list your areas of improvement(I dont call them weakness, though they are).I am pretty sure you will more strengths compared to your AOIs. It is all in the mind. Good luck.

Self esteem is not something that one can develop overnight as it has to be consistently worked for a very long time. But it is not impossible to gain self esteem as one has always value themselves more than they value others. Positivity is the key and always wishing for the best is the only way this can happen.

All i can tell you is that my son had a low self esteme and what i found for him that worked was,pay as many compliments as you can to them the way they look,even how happy and healthy they look,also things like the good things that they do for people as well as how much of a nice person they are on the inside as well as the out side,this will help boost their confidence and self esteem.Good luck.

Every one has good points and good qualities...help this person to find theirs. Self esteem needs to be built up one step at a time...it won't happen overnight. Often when we help others we help ourselves at the same time. Good luck.
