Competence Starts with feeling competent

"Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are." - Forbes

It is important to have good self-esteem. Good self-esteem gives you the courage to try new things and the power to believe in yourself. It lets you respect yourself, even when you make mistakes. If you think you're important, you'll be less likely to follow the crowd who might be doing something dumb or dangerous. You value your safety, your feelings, your health - your whole self!

"A person's worth in this world is estimated according to the value they put on themselves." - Jean De La Bruyere

"No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." - Eleanor Roosevelt

"Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on."

"Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable." - Zig Ziglar

"To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives." - Denis Waitley

"Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish." - Sam Walton
