I am an optimist.
I set ambitious goals. I aim high because I believe in myself and my abilities. I push myself beyond my comfort zone. Testing my potential keeps me learning and growing.
I persevere through obstacles. I remember my purpose. My motivation stays strong.
I build my confidence and self-esteem. I take pride in my talents and accomplishments. I accept myself as I am. I know I am worthy of love and success.
I cultivate gratitude. I am content with what I have. I count my blessings and tell others how much I appreciate them.
I surround myself with positive influences. I spend time with family and friends who support and encourage me. I ask my colleagues for constructive feedback at work. I participate in a faith community that helps me to make my life more meaningful.
I monitor my media consumption. I take a break from world news and crime shows if they are disturbing my peace of mind.
I trust others. I am quick to forgive. I am generous with second chances and the benefit of the doubt. I see myself as a survivor rather than a victim.
I turn challenges into opportunities. I find creative ways to make setbacks work to my advantage. A conflict with my partner can help start a serious discussion that deepens our relationship.
Today, I look on the bright side. I recognize that hardships are temporary. I smile and enjoy the sunshine. I am happy and hopeful.
