I am the captain of my ship. I make my own decisions and take responsibility for my choices.
I listen to my intuition. I follow my heart. I define what success means for me instead of comparing myself to others.
I leverage my strengths. I figure out what I do well and what I love to do. I structure my tasks so that I can take advantage of my natural talents.
I manage my emotions. I focus on the things that I can control. I remind myself that how I respond to events is up to me. I can use any situation as an opportunity to learn and grow.
I limit distractions. I cut out activities that drain my time and energy. I spend fewer hours watching TV and browsing online and more hours working on my hobbies and volunteering in my community.
I make myself a priority. I take care of my health. I exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, and sleep 8 hours each night.
I think positive. I look for the humor in difficult situations. I count my blessings and give myself encouraging pep talks. I know I can accomplish great things when I am willing to make the effort.
I take action. I make concrete plans and evaluate my progress. I take steps each day that bring me closer to my goals. I persevere through obstacles and setbacks.
Today, I chart my own path. I have confidence in myself and my abilities.
