Think Well of Yourself

Here’s a pep talk from the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), February 19, 1920, page 1:

Think Well of Yourself.

Think well of yourself. Be good to yourself. You are very important to you. In you are all the elements of success. you have within you the latent force that will lift you success-ward. Don’t pity yourself. Don’t lessen your own value in your own eyes. Have confidence in yourself.

Believe in your own ability to do big things. Only by having faith in yourself can you compel others to have faith in you.

Treat yourself as a person of worth.

Demand much of yourself. Be your own hardest task-master. Be determined to better the work you are doing.

Study how you can produce more at less cost of mental and physical energy. Think big thoughts and back them up with big deeds. You can, if you will.

You will.

The fire you kindle for your enemy often burns yourself more than him.
