I Build Confidence in Myself and Others

Self-confidence is extremely valuable. Because I believe in myself, I can show others how to have faith in what they can accomplish. I see my dreams realized because I have the self-confidence to pursue them without giving up.

I avoid surrendering my dreams. Even if I feel sad or afraid, I know that those emotions are only temporary. I can do anything I put my mind to. Belief in myself helps me to move forward in life.

By showing others that they can be self-assured and brave, I learn a great deal. When I help others, I help myself. My confidence grows when I see others succeed after I have helped them. Their success becomes my success.

Approach Life with Positive Thinking

Mitchell Moore is believed to have once said, “Attitude is everything.” In other words, how you approach your day or a situation determines how that day or situation will go. Thinking positively is a fairly simple personal rule to remember. However, putting it into practice in your daily life can be more challenging.

I Have The Patience To Be Strong

I have the patience to be strong through the changes in my life. When the world around me appears unsteady, it would be easy to give in to fear, but my courage rises up and helps me to be patient.

At times, my life is overflowing with great abundance and blessings, but there are times when I must wait patiently. I can be patient because I am confident of what lies ahead.

I am like the farmer who labors hard during the fall and enjoys the fruit of his labor in the spring. There are seasons in my life where I must simply work hard and then wait for my hard work to bring forth the results I desire.

I Am Confident Of My Skills

A highly qualified team surrounds me in my workplace. Less confident people may feel threatened by potentially being upstaged. However, I welcome competition in the workplace because it gives me an incentive to reach higher!

I am confident in my skills and ability to advance in my work-related endeavors. My company has confidence in me and hired me because they saw these strengths.

I take every opportunity to excel and keep the competitive edge alive. I ensure that I always present my work and myself in the best light. When my coworkers are commended for a job well done, I am genuinely happy for them. Like me, I know that my coworkers work very hard to maintain their position.

In order to accelerate my career advancement, I ensure that I am always on top of the trends in my industry. I read magazines, journals and blogs to better acquaint myself and hold intelligent conversations about my industry. My hard work is sure to be noticed, as are all of my daily efforts.

Today, I cheer a coworker on! My coworkers are my allies and sometimes my friends. Therefore, I am filled with encouragement to have great colleagues.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Do I often take the extra steps to accelerate my career?
  2. Am I truly happy for my coworkers when they are given a pat on the back?
  3. Does my insecurity in the workplace stem from my lack of ability to trust others?
