People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed
only if there is light from within.
Affirmation: I believe in myself and my own abilities.
“I am capable of so many things!
My talents and skills combine to help me do good things for myself and for others, and I am very proud of what I have to offer the world. Whatever obstacles come my way, I can accomplish what I set out to do. I believe in my own abilities.
Each day of my life, I grow in some way. I put my best foot forward and learn from everything that comes to me. Because I can grow from even the most challenging situations, I know that I can rise to any occasion.
I am capable of more than I can even dream of today, and I look forward to seeing those abilities manifest.
If I ever feel like I am doing less-than-fabulous work, I make the time to give myself a breather. Sometimes a little time away is enough to help me gain the perspective I need to approach a task in a new light or in a new way.
During this time, I think about my past successes. This helps me remember my own capability, so that when I return to work, I feel good about myself.
I have accomplished much in my life. This is due, in no small part, to my innate talents. But I have also learned many skills that help me achieve my goals. Whether working on my own objectives or being of service to others, everything I do helps me to do even better tomorrow.
Today, I am thankful for all of my skills and talents.
I am confident in my ability to reach my goals. Each day, I remind myself of what I do well, which encourages me to move forward with positivity.”
