"If only you believe in yourself"

"Nobody can give you a feeling of SELF WORTH. Nobody can preach it to you or teach it to you or sing it to you. . . It’s a victory and A GIFT YOU GIVE YOURSELF. And it happens when you judge yourself based on the evidence of your own accomplishment. It’s that moment when you realize you can do something, overcome something, be something." Great talk by singer Michael McLean.

  1. This is absolutely right! It's the philosophy I based my teaching on during all those days of talk of teaching self image. It was my job to create opportunities for success for even the most struggling students, so that they could gain that self worth for themselves. And success breeds success.
