Frame this and put it where you AND your kids can see it: "You can be excellent in every way. You can be first class. There is no need for you to be a scrub. Respect yourself. Do not feel sorry for yourself. Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you. Polish and refine whatever talents you have been given. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart."
