Learning from successes can boost your self-esteem because you can learn more about yourself and your strengths.  Virtually everyone excels in at least one area (often more than one); this can help you learn where your best skills lie and do more activities that enable you to take advantage of these advanced skills more often.

When you do something well, you feel a sense of accomplishment, pride, and confidence surge in you because you were able to achieve something that either helped yourself and/or helped others.  In many cases, you were the best person for the task and were more easily able to achieve it than other people would have.  Therefore, other people will look up to you because you can complete the task and/or achieve the feat more quickly and easily than others. 

When you are having a difficult time or struggling with challenges, it is important to look back upon your successes and realize that you can do great things and succeed at whatever you are doing.  Sometimes, life “throws us a curveball” that makes us uncomfortable and causes us to struggle with tasks that we are not used to and have difficulty completing at a high level. 

The key is that we must remember that we can adapt and succeed even during these difficult times.  Reflect on when you’ve had successes, especially those tasks that others struggled with and called upon you to do.  Whether it was an issue with a computer or electronic device, an item at home that needed repairing, or just offering helpful advice to someone dealing with a situation you dealt with before, you could succeed where others couldn’t or would have a harder time succeeding.

By reflecting on your past successes and realizing you can adapt and do many tasks well, you will realize that whatever challenge you face can also be overcome.  You must focus on the task, utilize the lessons you’ve learned from past successes, and work to overcome the present challenge.  By taking time to reflect and learn from your past successes, you can keep your self-esteem during times of great difficulty and be able to overcome virtually any challenge that comes your way.
