I accept reality. I face troubles head on instead of wishing that circumstances were different. I focus on the things I can control and overcome the obstacles in my path.
I take a first step. I break big projects down into smaller tasks. I figure out something I can do now. Each victory helps me to build momentum.
I leverage my strengths. I make my unique skills and talents work for me.
I ask for help. I reach out for support. I collaborate with others. I am thankful for their practical assistance and moral encouragement. I listen to feedback with an open mind and use it to learn and grow.
I persevere. I know that worthwhile things usually require time and effort. I care more about lasting achievements than quick fixes that may backfire. I have staying power. I keep going through setbacks and delays.
I stay calm. I think rationally and make sound decisions.
I maintain a positive attitude. I meet challenges with confidence and courage. I find the humor in difficult situations. I choose words that lift me up. I count my blessings and notice the fortunate events that occur each day.
I treat myself with compassion. I accept my feelings even when they are uncomfortable. I explore them without making judgements. I look to my faith. I manage stress constructively with physical exercise and deep breathing.
Today, I keep moving forward. I turn challenges into opportunities for growth.
