CLIFF NOTES FOR CLASS OF 2014:
1. Self-esteem is not bestowed upon people, it is not a gift or an inheritance. It is something you develop, like a muscle.
2. Realize there’s something in YOU that is worth esteeming. There is something unique and special within all of us. YES, even you.
3. Face the difficult things. Step towards something that is both good for you AND intimidates you. It doesn’t even matter if you succeed or fail, it matters that you try.

PLEASE HEAR ME: Self-esteem is only earned by taking steps through adversity. Go out there and attempt something difficult even though it scares you.
