Every day I see more proof that I can handle the challenges in my life. I understand my strengths and skills. Remembering my accomplishments helps me to see myself in a positive and realistic light. I select projects that are suited to my unique talents.
I manage my emotions. I take responsibility for my life. I think before I act. I am learning to respond rather than react. I acknowledge my doubts and fears and seek wise counsel while making decisions that help me to reach my goals.
I project confidence. When I look assured, I feel stronger and friendlier.
I take worthwhile risks. I venture outside of my comfort zone. I learn a new sport or take cooking classes. I resolve conflicts instead of backing away. I speak up in business meetings and present proposals to my boss.
I repeat positive affirmations. I choose words that inspire me and encourage a growth mindset.
I accept myself as I am. I pursue my own definition of success rather than comparing myself to others. I am authentic at work and at home. I see to be real, not perfect.
I allow myself to be vulnerable. My relationships are based on honest and open communication. I trust my family and friends. I love myself even when I fall short of expectations.
I pick myself back up when something shakes my confidence. I analyze my experiences and apply what I learn. I keep moving forward.
Today, I believe in myself and my abilities. Confidence is a skill that I strengthen with consistent effort and practice.
