Helpful Books to Learn to Build Long Lasting Self Esteem

Learn how to think highly of yourself.

Self-esteem building is just one of the essential personal skills you’ll need to develop. But rather than a skill that you use when interacting with other, this is a skill that you’ll use when dealing with yourself.

Self-esteem is nothing more than the respect and appreciation you have for the person you see daily when you stand in front of the mirror. It usually comes built-in in children, but as we grow older, we tend to forget while learning other complicated aspects of being human. Rediscover how to think highly of yourself again with these books on developing self-esteem.

#4 50 After 50–Reframing the Next Chapter of Your Life by Maria Leonard Olsen

50 After 50--Reframing the Next Chapter of Your Life by Maria Leonard Olsen
At age 50, Maria Leonard Olsen drank her way out of her 25-year marriage. She had, against advice, put all her eggs in the motherhood basket, will-fully derailing her successful law career. As teenagers, her precious children did not need her in the hands-on way they previously had. Her husband and she had grown apart because, among other things, they failed to nurture that important relationship.

She was depressed, stuck and rudderless. When she turned 50, she had the distinct feeling that she was on the downward slope of her life. Actuarially speaking, she was. So when she turned 50, her gift to herself was to go on a crusade to make the most of whatever time she had left. She set out to do 50 new things that were significant, at least to her.

The list spanned physical challenges, adventure travel, and lifestyle changes. Each taught her something about herself and about how she wanted to lead the next years of her life to come. This work follows the work she did to overcome addiction and trauma to accomplish those 50 new things and shows readers how to make their own action lists to live their lives in more close alignment with their true selves.

Accomplishing new things, learning new skills, deepening personal and spiritual relationships, and seeking out challenges increases one’s self esteem and ignites a life that may feel repetitive, insignificant, inauthentic, or just plain boring.
