We feel good about ourselves to the exact degree we feel in control of our lives.

SELF-ESTEEM controls PERFORMANCE/REALITY which stimulate SELF-TALK which reinforces SELF-ESTEEM. This cycle can work positively or negatively and is greatly influenced by the self-talk (I knew I wasn't good at -X vs. next time I'll practice and do better at -X).
Think highly of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate.
You're not what you think you are; you're not what others think you are; you're what you think others think you are!
Acknowledgment -- If you wish your merit to be known, acknowledge that of other people.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
