  1. Incredibly compelling & personal. And just the right amount of practical
    pointers on how we can create a world full of people who feel great about
    themselves.

  2. “Find your Julie”…that should be easy for me because my name is Julie. 🙂
    Love the positivity Niko! Great speech.

  3. This might work for some but to a great extent it seems she’s drawing a
    line from “achievement” to “self-esteem”. For instance “I’m a good artist”.
    If my self-esteem is depending on the quality of my art it will also
    crumble when I struggle in my artistic endeavours. I can’t help to think
    that self-esteem is something that ought to exist on a deeper level, not
    being linked to how good or bad I am at something.

  4. i totally agree… i’ve had to learn that self esteem can’t really have any
    reasons, it’s not about a checklist of good points (but make one, coz it is
    really nice) it’s about having self esteem because it’s makes sense –
    you’ve gotta put up with you! also this video is shit.. these techniques
    are really outdated.

  5. Thanks for your response. Curious thing is that I’ve tried this method. For
    a period I forced myself to end the day praising myself for at least three
    things. It got boring real fast. I felt like “Ok. Fine. So what?”. In
    actuality “good” is a relative value. The speaker says “I’m 21 and I think
    I’m just as successful as my friends.” Comparing yourself to others does
    little for your self-esteem in the long-term. You’re only as good or bad as
    your point of reference.

  6. I really loved the way you talk about your experience with the girls. You
    transmit such a positive enegy and it seems you are about to cry about how
    important this was for you. I will definitely take your advice into account
    and hopefully will be able to do the same with my students.

  7. wow. thank you very much, your video filled my eyes with tears.. i never
    found 10 things for my list before watching – now i’ve got them 🙂

  8. Superior Video! I am more of a mind person, so I believe in facts. I even
    use an iPhone app called “dr love” by lokesh which keeps telling me how
    much I love myself across different aspects of my life and then I take
    corrective actions.

  9. You are on point with everything. Thank you for sharing your past in a
    positive way!

  10. I’ve always believed and still believe that self-esteem builds up
    self-confidence.And self-esteem can be built not only by ourselves, but
    also by the people around us. I’ve seen many people that tend to give
    compliments to their friends, they just start sending positive thoughts to
    them by the idea of acknowledging them and believing in them. That’s
    usually what makes people think positively about themselves ignoring the
    negative thoughts that are usually brought up by their enemies or friends.

  11. what she is saying is nice and all but I can’t get all the negative things
    people have said about me out of my head

  12. If you only have positive thoughts about yourself, wouldn’t you eventually
    just become a narcissist. Negative thoughts are good for a reality check
    from time to time.

  13. i’m going to do my list of 10 things now ,i really need that change ,i’m 41
    years old and got to the stage that i take diazipam just to feel good about
    my self even though i have done nothing wrong.

  14. her face radiates so much positivity and joy.. great video
    the 10 list is very helpful if you do them everyday before bed

  15. i feel like i dont wanna watch any other video after this , i dont wanna
    spoil this moment of awesomeness created by this inspirational fantastic
