Self-esteem

«Women who love themselves are threatening; but men who love real women, more so.»

Naomi Wolf


«I believe with all my heart that the cliches are true, that we are our own best friends and best company, and that if you're not right for yourself, it's impossible to be right for anyone.»

Rachel Machacek


«In your own life it's important to know how spectacular you are.»

Steve Maraboli


«Do not despise your gift. We are all valuable.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After awhile you'll see your rivals scrambling for second place.»

Criss Jami


«If you choose not to live self-responsibly, you count on others to make up your default. No one abjures self-responsibility on a desert island.»

Nathaniel Branden


«You have to conquer every mountain to fulfill the dream.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«If you live life on your own terms it shouldn’t feel like a jail cell.»

Shannon L. Alder


«Your mission: feel good about who you are, what you do, how you think, and how you look--without needing anybody's approval!»

Karen Salmansohn


«Self-care is possessing enough self-awareness to invoke repeated patterns of being, that harmoniously correct the behaviors of over-functioning for others while under-functioning for yourself.»

LaShaun Middlebrooks Collier


«Many people listen, but never hear, some hear only what they want to hear. A few people but listen, because they want to hear, and then they understand, they needed to listen.»

Norbert Harms


«The denial of assistance is sometimes the greatest assistance. The trick is recognizing when this is the case.»

Richelle E. Goodrich


«I think it all basically breaks down to something like this: You have to look and feel great first. If you eat well, exercise and get enough sleep, you will have ample energy and the proper self-confidence to create and produce beyond your wildest dreams! Looking great and radiating positive energy, while presenting your highest quality work, is what will always make you the most valuable and only logical choice in whatever it is that you reach for.»

Jennifer Elisabeth


«If you don't love yourself it's tough to love anything about your life. Appreciating who you are is essential to your happiness.»

Karen Salmansohn


«To live in a culture in which women are routinely naked where men aren't is to learn inequality in little ways all day long. So even if we agree that sexual imagery is in fact a language, it is clearly one that is already heavily edited to protect men's sexual--and hence social--confidence while undermining that of women.»

Naomi Wolf


«with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26").»

Michele Woolley


«I have always found it odd that people who think passive aggressively ignoring a person is making a point to them. The only point it makes to anyone is your inability to articulate your point of view because deep down you know you can’t win. It’s better to assert yourself and tell the person you are moving on without them and why, rather than leave a lasting impression of cowardness on your part in a person’s mind by avoiding them.»

Shannon L. Alder


«Each one of us is the architect of his own fate; and he is unfortunate indeed who will try to build himself without the inspiration of God, without realizing that he grows from within, not from without.»

David O. McKay


«You are capable of great deeds.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«The first and most important person you must believe in is yourself.»

Toni Sorenson


«One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.»

Shannon L. Alder


«What a wonderful word, future. Of all the abstractions we can articulate to ourselves, of all the concepts we have that other animals do not, how extraordinary the ability to consider a time that's never been experienced. And how tragic not to consider it. It galls us, we with such a limited future, to see someone brush it aside as meaningless, when it has an endless capacity for meaning, and an endless number of meanings that can be found within it.»

David Levithan


«it doesn't matter, if you're on a dirt road, just follow it, you'll hit some asphalt again»

Norbert Harms


«Swearing doesn’t make your argument valid; it just tells the other person you have lost your class and control.»

Shannon L. Alder


«How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others»

Steve Maraboli


«The best lightning rod for your protection is your own spine.»

Ralph Waldo Emerson


«Every day I wake up and re-commit to my health. This is a very important step for me. I let the past be the past. I try not to dwell on the mistakes I've made, because those kinds of thoughts only bring me down. I wake up every day with the thought that this is a new day. That today I am going to eat well, I am going to exercise, and I'm going to focus on being healthy and happy.»

Stephen Cremen


«Don't become a random photograph in the eyes of friends, and even your enemies, for each glance at your face will cause a declination of value and reputation. Create value, through scarcity.»

Michael Bassey Johnson


«Self-esteem is the switch in the circuit of your life that dims or brightness of your future. Bring it low and you don't shine your light; raise it up and you brighten the corner where you are.»

Israelmore Ayivor


«No matter how valuable you are and your ideas, fools will certainly play both of you down, so exclude yourselves from the inflammatory environs of fools.»

Michael Bassey Johnson
