I am a great guy and these are my tips for boosting your self-esteem
  1. "Fish" for compliments.
    There's nothing like a compliment to get you self-esteemed. Science defines a compliment as a nice thing that is said about someone's clothing. You can have compliments yourself, and all it takes is the courage to simply ask for them! But don't simply "ask" for them. Instead, try "fishing" for compliments. It's easy! Say a mean thing about yourself to anyone listening. Then wait... like a fisherman. Be sure to preface this "cast" (fishing term) with "I'm not fishing for compliments." Be genuine.
  2. Give yourself "two thumbs up" in the mirror.
    For Gene Siskel, Roger Ebert, and everyone in between (Richard Roeper, other men), the thumbs-up gesture has been a fun and effective sign of approval. Give someone a thumbs-up and they know exactly what you mean: You or I or this movie is "A-OK"! It turns out that you can give your own face this same gift, every single day. Give it a try! Flash yourself a thumbs-up (or two, or three!) in the mirror. Hold it for 15-20 minutes and you're all set. How do you feel? Richard Roeper is not deceased.
  3. Peanut butter.

  4. Become very successful.
    "Success" has many definitions, and happily, you get to choose the definition that works best for you! However, the correct definition of success is when you make more than $250,000 per year. Importantly, these must be US dollars (nice try, other countries!) Remember, every little bit of money over $250,000 per year helps, even an additional $50,000+ per year. Of course, money can't buy self-esteem. Money can only buy success, which in turn yields self-esteem. Richard Roeper is successful/alive.
