low esteem

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. The most important thing you have in your life as you are growing into adulthood is the attitude you have about yourself. At the moment yours is negative towards yourself, and the more you think in a negative way, the worse they are going to get.

Its not all doom and gloom though! You can change how you are simply by changing the way you think about yourself. Become determined to succeed, to do better at school, not give into the fact that your grades are slipping, but give yourself a talking to and say that you are going to improve because you know that you can.

By wallowing in a poor attitude you are setting yourself up to fail, and as your grades have been higher in the past there is no reason why they cant be that again, or higher, but it is entirely up to you and the attitude you have towards yourself.

Believe me when I say that when you start to really believe in yourself, and that you have the ability to achieve, and stay determined to do so, you will slowly and surely improve your situation.

Only you can do this though, don't ever quit on yourself. Keep a positive attitude for the rest of your life in all things that you do, and you will be brilliant!
