Self esteem quotes - from my notebooks

What qualifications do you need? To be alive, and with the willingness to get best out of life. The rest can come.

Are you invited to the party, to life? A resounding -YES. So enjoy and make the most of it.

Envious of another - why is that? What have they got, or what are they, that you covet or wish to emulate. Remember that you can achieve things in your own way and just for you.

You can serve another by way of job or friendship. But there is no need to be subservient. Stand tall and be counted. Count yourself for you do count. You are important.

Walking free. The true freedom. In control, but not controlling. In tune with your inner self. To know what is real. To experience that and live by that.

You have nothing to hide. Be proud of your achievements, of who you are, of what you do.

Get in there with people. Communicate, be yourself and give of yourself and people will respond.

Respect is earned not rewarded.

Permission. Give yourself permission to enjoy life. To strive for the life you'd like. To be the sort of person you'd like to be.

Be our own person. Don't live through someone else. Live your life. Only you can - no one can do it for you.

Build your life on firm, solid foundations. You would not build/live in a house built on quicksand. Why expect to have a good and stable life if there is turmoil at the base of things. Do something about it. Seek help.

Are you self sufficient? At times you will need help and assistance but, at the end of the day, you have to live by your choices, decisions or actions. You cannot blame another.
