Self Esteem Journal Prompts for Extreme Confidence

Self Esteem Journal Prompts

Self-esteem is more indicative of how someone views their own body than their actual weight and appearance. Pretty insane, but not all that surprising.

Even if you are someone with disproportionately high levels of confidence, you are affected every single day by your level of self-esteem.

Every action you take (and inversely don't take) is directly related to your self-image and self-worth.

Deeply ingrained ideas of who we are and what we are capable of are ultimately the gatekeepers of the actions we decide to take throughout our lives.

Having negative self-esteem and an inaccurate conception of what you are capable of achieving can alter the potential you have to accomplish your dreams.


Whether You Think You Can, or Think You Can't ... You're Right.

- Henry Ford


Fortunately, self-esteem is like a muscle. It's something that can be trained. Unfortunately, it very rarely is.

That's where these self esteem journal prompts can help you. Everyone has some level of self-esteem, even if it's lower than others. This collection of self-esteem prompts will allow you to focus and amplify what you have!

Whatever you spend time thinking of and justifying in your mind grows in your perception and ultimately forms your self-image. From this self-image, your volitions to act and emotions spawn.

Journaling for self-confidence can plant better seeds in your mind.


A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.

- James Allen

Self Confidence Affirmations

Another excellent method for boosting self-esteem is with affirmation questions. Ask yourself questions from your desired state and answer them how you would like the answer to be.


Why am I greater than my fears?

Because I consistently conquer my fears every single day. They are tiny annoyances that barely even bother me anymore.

Why do I radiate confidence?

Because I always have and always will. It is deeply ingrained in who I am.

Why do others see me as incredibly confident?

Because I am incredibly confident. Confidence is just part of who I am.
