I speak to myself with much love and compassion. I think positive. My inner voice builds up my confidence and self-esteem.
I choose gentle words and stick to the facts. I ask myself open-ended questions that help me view situations from a different perspective and clarify my purpose.
I practice daily. Doubts and assumptions can be stubborn. I am patient. I strengthen my new beliefs each time I think about them or say them out loud.
I repeat positive affirmations. I use empowering statements to guide my thoughts and actions.
I give myself a pep talk before challenging tasks. I take a few deep breaths and remember my achievements. I tell myself that I am strong and competent. I visualize myself delivering an effective presentation or negotiating a raise.
I comfort myself when I am under pressure. I validate my feelings and my experiences. I motivate myself to persevere and move forward.
I praise myself for making an effort. I give myself credit for trying, regardless of the outcomes. I can learn from successes and setbacks.
I let myself cry and make myself laugh. I love and accept myself for who I am. I observe my thoughts and feelings without making judgments. I look for the reasons behind them, so I can understand my reactions and make conscious decisions.
Today, I appreciate the power of my inner voice. I talk to myself like a dear friend.
