  • Self esteem summary

    Self-Esteem Summary

    • “Self-esteem is vital to achieving. You must not only feel good about yourself but feel you can perform and can accomplish great things. If you have established a great work ethic and have begun the discipline inherent with that, you will automatically begin to feel good about yourself.”

      • For long lasting motivation and confidence, self-esteem must be earned by the individual … “Deserve success”

        • Taken from “Success is a Choice” by Rick Pitino.
