Affirmation: I face unexpected challenges head-on.
I embrace each challenge with a smile. When faced with a task I find intimidating, I take the time to carefully craft a tactful approach. No challenge is too great and no hurdle is too high for me.
I free myself from fears and insecurities, as they only serve as obstacles on my journey to success.
When my boss hands me a difficult project, I know he has only done so because he is confident in my ability to succeed. I consider it a privilege to learn career-enhancing skills while on the clock. Not only does this allow me to increase my portfolio of marketable skills, but it also makes me a better person.
At times, my children test my patience, but I graciously welcome the ebbs and flows of parenthood. When toys are scattered throughout my living room and my kids have used the wall as a drawing board, I laugh and feel blessed for having such imaginative bundles of joy.
I realize that each situation, no matter how glum, has both a positive and a negative aspect. It’s my decision how I choose to look at it.
For example, if my car breaks down and needs expensive repairs, I keep my composure. Rather than feeling sorry for myself, I look into alternative car insurance policies that better suit my needs. If I come down with the flu, I use my time off from work to catch up on my favorite shows.
Today, I face any challenge thrown my way with confidence and courage. I walk into each situation with absolute certainty in my ability to achieve great results.
1. What is stopping me from pursuing challenging tasks? 2. Are my fears rational, or do they stem from insecurity? 3. How can I increase my abilities in conflict resolution?
