10 Positive Assumptions

  1. I will make and keep my commitments.
  2. I will find the right people who can help me.
  3. I will look for the answer in every problem.
  4. I will give up “trying.”
  5. I will make it okay to be”wrong” and make mistakes.
  6. I will create my own “good luck.”
  7. I will not be afraid to lose before I win.
  8. I will do it NOW!
  9. I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.
  10. I will accept that all things are possible.”

How about cutting ourselves some slack today and giving ourselves a pat on the back when we make a small win — and even when we’re struggling? Here’s a simple plan.
