Take healthy risks.
Set goals and work toward them .
Know their strengths and use them.
Look at the positive side of life.
See opportunities and challenges rather than obstacles.
Do not dwell on the failure-they see only lessons learned.
Know how to play-socialize fairly.

Success comes from within. It flows from your acceptance of and comfort in yourself.
Belief and confidence in yourself is the single most important element of learning and life.
Students with high self-esteem achieve with integrity. What you believe about yourself, you can achieve.
