Being myself is liberating.

Being myself is liberating.

Being myself is liberating.

At a time when there is so much pressure to conform to norms, I am happy about my individuality.

I feel free when I focus on the version of myself that I am happy with. It is pointless to listen to the opinions of others regarding my choices. Whatever feels good in my soul forms the truth that I live.

It takes away any obligation to watch what I say or how I act. As long as I maintain honorable values, I am at peace with the things that I say and do. It feels good to maintain consistency and honor my integrity.

I feel comfortable being myself because sincerity is easy.

I am honest about who I am and what I believe in. Betraying my morals goes against my character, regardless of the potential benefits.

Regularly testing my limits allows me to see what I am comfortable with. Whenever a particular approach feels uncomfortable, I stay away from it.

I know that I am loved just the way I am. The special people in my life deserve to feel sure about me. Their loyalty to me dictates that I am always honest with them.

Today, the only person that I am committed to being is myself. My mantra each morning is to put the best version of myself forward and make a positive impact on the world.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  • What do I consider my most admirable trait?
  • How often do I commit to expressing myself freely?
  • When is it okay to consider another person’s advice about my approach to things?

I accept a challenge.

I accept a challenge.

It is uncommon for me to pass up opportunities because of their level of difficulty. Taking on something that tests my drive and creativity is good for my overall development.

Consistent fitness is difficult to maintain with my hectic work schedule, but I commit to it. I know that there are benefits to be gained by staying in shape.

Each week, I choose to make my workouts more intense than the week before. That is the way to gain continued benefit from the routines. When I sense my body getting used to a particular level of intensity, I increase it to challenge myself.

The triumph of completing the new level successfully brings a sense of pride. It reminds me that I am a warrior. I am strong enough to take on anything.

Competition is healthy because it allows me to test my resolve. In competitions, I focus on myself instead of others. The race is between the old me and the version that is committed to reaching higher heights.

The thrill in accepting a challenge is seeing whether I am able to bypass my past performance and set new records.

I keep that goal in my mind each month when I set my targets at work. Instead of worrying about how well my co-workers are doing, I concentrate on my own performance. I know that I have the ability to dig deeper to produce outstanding results.

Today, any challenge that comes my way is a chance to reinforce what I already know about myself. I have the ability to take on any tough situation.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are some of the toughest challenges that I face at work?
  2. How do my personal relationships challenge me?
  3. How do I know when it is time to concede victory to a competitor?
