I am patient with myself.
I set realistic goals. I recognize my strengths and the areas where I need to grow. I prioritize the activities that are meaningful to me. I limit distractions and manage my time wisely.
I focus on the things I can control. I accept uncertainty as part of life.
I learn from experience. I take worthwhile risks. I give myself credit for trying new things. I evaluate my performance and challenge myself to keep building on it. I try to measure up to my own standards, instead of comparing myself to others.
I ask others for feedback and support. I reach out for help when I need it. I listen to others with an open mind. I am grateful for constructive criticism. Instead of becoming defensive, I look for valid points that I can use to my advantage.
I think positive. I am cheerful and optimistic. I love and respect myself. I think of personal development as a way to enrich my life, rather than making corrections. I am worthy of happiness and success just the way I am now.
I treat myself with kindness and compassion. My inner dialogue is filled with gentle and encouraging messages.
I enjoy the journey. I remember that the process is as important as the outcomes. I have fun while I pursue my goals.
Today, I strive for excellence without putting too much pressure on myself. I am productive and relaxed. I feel calm and confident.
