Keep in mind that having a healthy self-esteem does not mean conceit. It also does not mean that you never doubt or have low points in your life.

Here are 7 common traits of people that have a healthy level of self-esteem ….

A person with healthy self esteem is confident in the choices they make. They don’t look to others to make decisions for them. They do not need the approval of others to feel good about themselves.

They take responsibility for their own actions. They know they are not perfect and when they make a mistake they own up to it. They don’t make excuses or blame others to make themselves look better.

Goal Oriented
They constantly set goals and take action on achieving them. They understand that nothing happens without action. They continually review their goals and modify them as necessary. They know they will not achieve every goal on the first attempt.

Love and Accept
People with healthy self-esteem accept themselves for whom they are now and where they are in life. They love and accept others as they are – they truly are capable of loving others unconditionally. They don’t have an inner need to change anyone else. They understand that they can only change themselves. Therefore they continually work on improving themselves – because they understand that change is constant.

Take Pride
They take care of themselves both emotionally and physically. Their personal and professional integrity is important to them – which makes them very trustworthy individuals.

People with healthy self-esteem are able to laugh at themselves. We all do silly things and life happens. They don’t fret and worry about it – they just laugh it off. They understand that laughter is the best medicine.

Are Happy
People with a healthy self-esteem are generally happy most of the time. This is because they know who they are and where they are going. Sure they have down time in their lives. But they usually pick themselves up quicker than most.
