I Am My Own Best Cheerleader

I root for myself in all situations. I offer myself praise, and appreciate the compliments I give myself. I choose words that motivate me.
I offer myself guidance. My advice is specific and practical. At a networking event, I remind myself that I am friendly and knowledgeable. I focus on smiling and staying updated on the latest industry news. It becomes easier to start conversations with strangers and join in their discussions.

I offer myself affirmation. I notice when I am losing weight or getting along better with my mother-in-law. I celebrate the positive changes I make.

The little things in life are rewarding. I watch a funny movie. Laughter dissolves stress and cheers me up. I prepare my favorite foods. Indulging in a cup of hot chocolate or a kale salad with cranberries restores my energy.

I play with my pets. They remind me that I am loveable.

I spend time with family and friends. They share my victories and setbacks. They support me in everything I do.

I love doing things to lift my spirits. I listen to stimulating music. Housework becomes less tedious when my favorite songs are playing. I exercise regularly. Physical activity fights depression. I head outdoors to surround myself with nature. Flowing water and green fields invigorate me.

Today, I give myself a pat on the back. When I cheer for myself, I am reminded that someone is in my corner. I remember my purpose in life and make positive decisions that support me.
