Self Esteem Quotes
Inspiring You To Be Your Best

I found a real lot of self esteem quotes in various books and on the internet. Most of them are from very succesful and famous people. To me that is an other indication of the importance of the way you see yourself as regards to happiness and success.

Here is what I ask you to do. Pick one quote everyday and take it as that day's leading thought. Write it on a piece of paper, take it with you and pull it out every now and then.

Self esteem really is the foundation of success and happiness. The more you can grow your self esteem, the greater your chances are of achieving true success, becoming who you truly are.
