Self-esteem
The secret heart of learning

Henry Ford put it neatly: "If you think you can or think you can't, you're right."
.
Too often we become what we think we can become.

.
Even worse, too often we become what other people expect.

.
If you are "programmed" to succeed, you are more likely to succeed.

.
And if you are "programmed" to fail, you are more likely to fail.

.
Hence the vital importance of self-esteem in learning and education.

.
In fact, the world's top-selling book of the year, The Learning Revolution, calls self esteem "the secret heart of learning".

.
Co-authors Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos say most school systems actually expect and plan for a reject rate that would send any business bankrupt.

.
From interviews and research around the world, the co-authors come to share the views expressed by American researcher Bettie B. Youngs that self-esteem is a composite of six vital ingredients:

  • Physical safety: Freedom from physical harm.
  • Emotional security: the absence of intimidations and fears.
  • Identity: the "Who am I?" question.
  • Affiliation: a sense of belonging.
  • Competence: a sense of feeling capable.
  • Mission: the feeling that one's life has meaning and purpose.
From all their research, Dryden and Vos say self-esteem and self-confidence should be built into the heart of all school curricula.
.
And they provide practical examples, from schools around the world, where children are learning self-confidence and self-esteem from every successful activity they undertake.
