How to Improve Self-Development and Self-Esteem

If you have been someone who has been the victim of low self-esteem or bad self-esteem, it may help to understand that in order to improve self-development and self-esteem it takes more than just putting one’s beliefs into practice.


When we discuss improving self development and self-esteem, one of the first things we but talk about is the difference between learning self-talk and reading self-talk. What exactly is self-talk? Self-talk is a self-concept, a perception of one’s own self. The concept is one that forms part of our thinking patterns, our perception of ourselves.

Reading self-talk is a psychological process whereby one is able to determine how to change the perceived self-concepts of oneself. For example, when we read a short story, a character sees himself in a different light and learns to see the events in that story as another person sees them.

What if we could alter the thought processes that cause us to improve self-development and self-esteem? If we are unable to identify self-talk as the cause of our issues with self-esteem, perhaps we can instead start to learn to identify the changeable self-thoughts that lead to improvement in our selves. One way we could do this is by practicing self-hypnosis. The next time you notice yourself acting out, start by visualizing and using your self-hypnosis technique.

The principles of self-hypnosis are actually quite simple, but they can also be a difficult concept to apply properly. We can learn some basic techniques by reading some self-help books, but most people want to do it the easy way. How to Improve Self-Development and Self-Esteem is a very popular book that helps with learning this technique.


Self-hypnosis works by changing the mind, but it works in reverse too. It works by “tricking” the mind into believing that it is an altered self.
