Nothing profits more than self-esteem, grounded on what is just and right.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.
Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable.
Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.
Self pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in the world.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world making the most of one's best.

Self-respect permeates every aspect of your life.
