A Quote by Sumner Davenport on gratitude, life, empowerment, joy, achievement, love, personal value, and self esteem

Living your life through Gratitude, is not one of comparing how you are better than someone else; or Gratitude only for what you own or obtain or achieve. Living your life through Gratitude, is  seeing that the world would be missing something very valuable if you were not in it.

A Quote by Yvonne P. Morris on greatness, divinity, love, self esteem, self-acceptance, purpose, potential, and vision

I AM GOD's GREAT IDEA, AND I AM READY TO UNFOLD MY GREATNESS! I take this bold statement of Truth with me every day, and I allow it to become my reality.  I have dared to envision a preferable future.  I get excited just thinking that no matter what I want for myself, it is only a tiny glimpse of what God has in store for me.

A Quote by A. on emotion, management, business, leadership, and self esteem

In every situation, you must lead with your real self, because if you're going to be on the leading edge of management, you sometimes must be on the emotional edge as well.

A Quote by James A. Autry on emotion, management, leadership, self esteem, and compassion

A few weeks ago, one of the senior managers in my group told me about a very difficult critique session he'd had with one of his women employees. He had hired her, with great expectations of an outstanding performance. Instead, she had not adjusted well to her new job, and her performance was lackluster. An appraisal and perhpas a "caring conftontation" were in order. When he told her she was not doing the job well enough, she began to cry. She knew, she said, she was letting him down, and her own disappointment in herself embarrassed her. Thus she cried. "What did you do?" I asked. "What could I do? I felt terrible. I cried too," he said, and I couldn't help thinking about the big-time management consultant and his box of Kleenex. In my view, that manager demonstrated two things: He cared enough about the work that he was willing to confront someone he had a special interest in, and he cared enough about her to be hurt that she was upset. But let me make something clear: *I'm not talking about management for and by the wimps.* In fact, I am talking about the most difficult management there is, a management without emotional hiding places. You just can no longer be the tough guy, and you also can't come on as the impassive, icewater-in-the-veins "cool head." On the other hand, the kindly parent who listens-and-understands-but-does-nothing approach also won't work. No, in every situation, you must lead with your real self, because if you're going to be on the leading edge of management, you sometimes must be on the emotional edge as well.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on self esteem, helping, virtue, and suffering

As a basic step of self-esteem, learn to treat as the mark of a cannibal any man's demand for your help.  To demand it is to claim that your life is his property --- and loathsome as such claim might be, there's something still more loathesome: your agreement.  Do you ask if it's ever proper to help another man?  No - if he claims it as his right or as a moral duty that you owe him.  Yes - if such is your own desire based on you own selfish pleasure in the value of his person and his struggle.  Suffering as such is not a value; only man's fight against suffering, is.  If you choose to help a man who suffers, do it only on the grounds of his virtue, of his fight to recover, of his rational record, or of the fact that he suffers unjustly; then your action is still a trade, and his virtue is the payment for your help.  But to help a man who has no virtues, to help him on the ground of his suffering as such, to accept his faults, his need, as a claim - is to accept the mortgage of a zero on your values.  A man who has no virtues is a hater of existence who acts on the premise of death; to help him is to sanction his evil and to support his career of destruction.  Be it only a penny you will not miss, or a small smile he has not earned,a tribute to a zero is treason to life and to all those who struggle to maintain it.  It is of such pennies and smiles that the desolation of your world was made.

A Quote by Yasuhiko Genku Kimura on self esteem, god, universal, confidence, self, and absolute and relative

"One who has self-esteem esteems oneself because one knows the value of one's being as a singular yet universal expression of the highest value in the Kosmos-the Universal Self, also known as God, Kami, or Brahma, or by many other names."
