Give yourself a few weeks to rest and then make new goals. Make a change in your life. Pick something small you have wanted to change and make it happen. Several small decisions can be as powerful as one large life decision.

Sign up for an athletic event. Choose something you have to train for, such as a half-marathon or a Tough Mudder. Exercise teaches mental resilience because you learn to push through pain and see its benefit. In addition, being physically powerful may make you feel mentally powerful. Set short-term and long-term goals. Working toward something is the culmination of self-empowerment, because you must feel as though your actions will help you achieve something.
Try a short-term goal like exercising 5 times a week for a month or increasing your productivity at work in small increments. Giving back to your community through a charity or a community organization will help you realize the power you have to affect the people around you. Learn about biases, and talk to them about what you've learned.
Learn to actually investigate such a claim. If every time someone says "you're ugly", you confirm your initial bias, but every time someone says "you're beautiful", you fail to question your own bias, then you'll never get more self-esteem. So look for reasons why that person might acknowledge they are indeed worth a little more self-esteem. In the end, though, if people don't want to help themselves, it's hard to do it for them.

And how could a person set them towards success and how do they work? I would say a short term goal is a goal that you want to fulfill in a shorter period of time, in the near future. It could be today, this week, this month or up to maybe a year or two. An example could be "arrive earlier at work".
A long term goal is a goal that requires a much longer time to complete. Think about your goals as how necessary they are and if they're things that don't stress you out.

No Excuses: Being Accountable for Your Own Success
From decision making roles at multinational Fortune companies to my own startup successes and failures, along with a personal journey of overcoming obstacles and events beyond my control, my life has been a series of ups and downs. The one consistent lesson always comes back to people.
The right people make you. The wrong people break you. This applies to any enterprise and experience. My former company, BTM Corporation, is an ecosystem comprised of: You must be honest with yourself, your audience and your mission. Effective leaders must be honest in order to invoke trust and respect from their team and anyone they encounter.
You never know who you will have to rely on or turn to in the future. Nobody forgets and forgives dishonesty.
Direct communication leads to direction, meaning the path you set as a leader. Nobody wants to follow someone with a muddled message. Every word must be deliberate and directed. Talk may be cheap, but it can also be worthless if uttered without direction, and even cost you a client, a deal or your whole business.
A direct message is priceless. You need to surround yourself with forward-thinkers. Make sure your people are ready for any changes, including the most unexpected, even unprecedented challenges, which have become the norm in a rapidly changing global marketplace and society. The most successful leaders are able to inspire and influence everyone from their executive team, employees, customers, clients, partners, investors and people outside of their enterprise and social circle or demographic.
Communication is key for inspiration. Leadership success can quickly inflate egos and alienate people, including those who are most critical to your ongoing ability to survive and thrive. It takes a dynamic person with a positive, honest, forward-looking attitude to inspire and influence the people involved in building and growing enterprises and communities. Like any community, a healthy business ecosystem must be nurtured to achieve long-term and continual success.
