Do things to fix the things about yourself that you don't like. Don't feel smart enough? Read more, discuss intellectual things, practice memorizing things and mental maths. Don't feel like you look good enough? Work out, dress well, find a hair style that works for you. Ask for advice or find out how to do it via the internet if you don't know how. You have bad self-esteem because you're not satisfied with who you are. Take steps to become the person you want to be.
This is easier said than done but it does provide a concrete method for boosting your self-esteem. It may be a long and difficult road, so be sure you stay motivated and never succumb to procrastination. Accomplishments are key when you want to feel good about yourself, especially when they're part of the process of becoming the person you want to be.
