Make self-esteem a habit, every day. Written by Lisa Schab, author of Self-Esteem for Teens, The Self-Esteem Habit for Teens offers 50 simple, positive thoughts and immediate actions to help you “perceive it, believe it, achieve it!”

When it comes to cultivating positive self-esteem, the teen years are the most challenging. You’re probably experiencing major changes—at school, with friends, physically, and mentally. But you may be tempted to compare yourself to your peers, friends, and celebrities, or get caught up in the seemingly perfect lives of others via social media. These comparisons, along with self-criticism, can feed into your insecurities and cause you to feel like you just aren’t good enough. So, how can you break the negative habits of comparison and self-criticism and start being a true friend to you?

In The Self-Esteem Habit for Teens, you’ll learn 50 easy, little ways you can make self-esteem a reality (and a habit!) every day—anytime, anywhere. Following the advice within this fun, pocket-sized guide, you’ll discover the six steps of lasting self-esteem, and find tips to help you learn from your mistakes, practice gratitude, see things from a different perspective, celebrate strengths, stop overgeneralizing, and cultivate healthy relationships.

Real change only happens with repeated practice. If you’re looking for concrete, immediate ways to help you practice and live the principles of self-esteem in your daily life, this little guide is chock-full of wisdom, positive thoughts, and immediate actions to help you be your best self—your authentic self!

Publisher Reviews
  • “An excellent read—full of guidance and practical, ageless wisdom for teens who are looking to better themselves.”
    —Robert W. Hasselmann, MA, middle school teacher, Robbins, IL
  • “As with other books written by the author on this subject, this is easy to read, makes sense, and easy to apply with my clients individually, in group settings, or in family therapy sessions. My clients’ ages range between ten and twenty-three, and many are at-risk youth, children, and families. I like using the book for ideas to assist clients who struggle with depression, bullying, and anxiety. They find the information applicable as they read and journal, and we process new skills. The information is therapeutic and backed by empirically sound research. This is not merely a ‘self-help’ book. This book is a great tool I’ve added to my counseling toolbox.”
    —Nancy DeWeese, MAMHC, LPC, family therapist with Professional Services Group
  • “Excellent resource that can be used by everyone—young and old! ‘Perceive it, believe it, achieve it!’ is a thought and activity process in the book that can be used in every area of life. In addition, the fifty simple ways to build confidence are just that—simple. Finally, the exercises are easily personalized for each person. Highly recommended! Great workbook!”
    —Kim Kanish, blended case manager, Family Psychological Association
  • “Lisa Schab’s The Self-Esteem Habit for Teens is a well-articulated definition of self-esteem and how a teen can acquire and strengthen it in their life. It’s really simple and easy to follow, builds on itself, and it’s not boring. ... This manual is a ‘must-have’ for any teen who wants to feel good about themselves.”
    Edward J. Nekarda, LCSW, BCD, MDiv, psychotherapist in private practice, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) specialist, and certified rapid trauma resolution therapist
  • “A wonderful resource and guide for all ages. The exercises in this book are easy to follow and there is something to appeal to almost everyone looking for a self-esteem boost or reset. I finished reading with the thought that I wish I would have had this when I was a teen.”
