How To Master Self-Respect

“No man who is occupied in doing a very difficult thing, and doing it very well, ever loses his self-respect.”

George Bernard Shaw

The latter version of yourself doesn’t experience self-respect.

The former version of yourself feels the power of doing what’s right, and with that comes admiration for oneself.

Self-respect stems from self-control.

Here’s a reminder:

People who prioritize discipline always respect themselves because they care about their future.

Others who prioritize pleasure despise themselves because, deep down, they know that they aren’t giving themselves the best chance to thrive.

You are always in a fight with two enemies.

“The dose makes the poison.”

Where there is discipline, there is self-respect.
