DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

Give your Self Esteem a boost

What is self esteem? It is your self-worth i.e. how high, or low, you value yourself. Why is it important? It can mean the difference between success and failure, living an abundant happy life or a dreary one filled with lack. Your self esteem and confidence levels are molded when you are very young and unfortunately, as a child you see the world as a gigantic place run by adults and it’s easy to feel “stupid” because you seem to know so little when you compare yourself with these grown-ups. Many times, when growing up as a child, your mind can get “imprinted” with negative suggestions that you might receive from parents, siblings, friends and school mates. These negative or hurtful things people say can affect you greatly by harming your self esteem and cause you to develop low confidence levels. Many people go through life feeling that they’re not worthy enough, that they don’t deserve success or that they will never amount to anything great or extraordinary. All these beliefs have been deeply impressed on their subconscious mind and will stay there unless you do something about it. Don’t let them destroy you, or get the best of you. As a grown-up you are no longer helpless and you can take some action to give your self esteem a boost!

Be careful of negative colleagues

You spend a large part of your life in the workplace so it’s likely that you can be influenced by colleagues, in a negative way, unfortunately. Beware of these people. They can actually influence you greatly and cause you to fall in with their negative thinking. This is where non-appreciative people usually thrive. No one will appreciate your contributions even if you sacrifice your lunch hour or work late. Most of the time you’ll be getting no help from work colleagues and backstabbing is common. You usually find politics in every workplace so try your best to stay out of this, it can ruin your self esteem. It’s fine to compete for promotions etc. but do it in a healthy and fair manner.

Learn to adapt to changing environments

The world we live in changes all the time. If you’re an “old dog” you MUST learn new tricks. Changes challenge our paradigms. It tests our flexibility, adaptability and alters the way we think. Changes will make life difficult for a while, it may cause stress but it will help us find ways to improve ourselves. Change will be there forever, we must be susceptible to it. When everyone else is moving along with the changes and you’re not, you might feel inferior when left behind. See it as a challenge, once you’ve adapted you will feel good and confident that you succeeded and won’t feel like the “odd one out”

Don’t dwell on past negative experiences

It’s okay to cry and feel depressed when we suffer from a painful experience. But don’t let pain transform itself into fear. If you dwell on it every day it will “embed” itself deep in your subconscious where it will influence your thoughts, habits and moods for a long time. Treat each failure and mistake as a lesson. You must move on. Remember the bad experience and learn from it, then let it go and continue going forward with your life.

Avoid too much media

Be careful at what you’re looking at. The media is filled with negativity. Watch the evening news and you’ll be bombarded with bad news from all across the globe and this influences your outlook on life. Don’t wrap yourself up with all the negativities of the world. In building self esteem, we must learn how to make the best out of worst situations. Also, young people everywhere are influenced by movie stars, singers and models. The media portray these entertainers as “perfect” and many youngsters feel inferior because they’re not as good looking or popular.

The way you are and your behavioral traits is said to be a mixed end product of your inherited traits (genetics), your upbringing and your environmental surroundings such as your spouse, your workplace, the community or your circle of friends. You have your own identity. If your father is a failure, it doesn’t mean you have to be a failure too. Learn from other people’s experience, so you’ll never have to make the same mistakes. Other people’s behavior, gossipmongers, whiners, backstabbers, manipulators, complainers … all these kinds of people will pose bad vibes for your self esteem, as well as hinder your self improvement scheme. Sometimes, you may wonder if some people are born leaders or positive thinkers. NO. Being positive, and staying positive is a choice. Building self esteem and drawing lines for self improvement is a choice, not a rule or a talent. God created us all the same and each and every one of us have an amazing and wonderful mind which can achieve great things.

In life, it’s hard to stay positive especially when situations and people around you keep pulling you down. When we get to the “battle field”, we should choose the right equipment to bring and armor to wear, pick those that are “negativity” proof. During the battle, we will get hit and bruised. And wearing “negativity” proof armor ideally means ‘self change’. The kind of change that comes from within. Building self esteem will eventually lead to self improvement if we start to become responsible for who we are, what we have and what we do. It’s like a flame that should gradually spread like a brush fire from inside and out. When we develop self esteem, we take control of our mission, values and discipline. Self esteem brings about self improvement, true assessment, and determination. So how do you start putting up the building blocks of self esteem? Be positive. Be contented and happy. Be appreciative. Never miss an opportunity to compliment. A positive way of living will help you build self esteem. People will notice the change in you and you will attract others who are similar to you into your life. Also visualize (create mental “pictures” or “videos”) of yourself being confident and admired by others. Do this every night just before falling asleep. This will “embed” new positive images of you on your subconscious and this in turn will help build self esteem.
