☆ think highly of 尊敬する
When we talk about “thinking highly of” someone, usually we are talking about other people; the people we respect at work or in our family, or famous people. However, the most important person we need to think highly of is?? Ourselves of course!
A famous educator in the US last century, Kurt Hahn, is famous for saying this, “Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate.” In other words, if you think highly of yourself, other people will believe that estimation and also think highly of you. However, if you don’t think highly of yourself, neither will anyone else.
There’s definitely truth in that statement, don’t you think? Do you think highly of yourself? If you don’t already, then please start today!
