Instead of being my own worst critic, I choose to be my greatest cheerleader. I encourage myself with positive thoughts because it is the best thing I can do for my self-image.
When a negative thought tries to creep into my mind, I promptly reject it without giving it time to develop. I protect my self-confidence because the way I see myself affects the way I carry myself and the way others see me as well.
There are things about me that I would like to change, so I work to improve on those areas. In the meantime, I build upon my strengths. I focus on my positive qualities to keep myself motivated.
When I stand in front of a mirror, I automatically point out three beautiful features I love about my body. I let go of the urge to condemn my imperfections and I am wonderfully made to achieve remarkable success.
My inner dialogue is saturated with respect, encouragement, and grace. I speak to myself the way I would speak to someone whom I admire. I refrain from belittling myself in my mind. When I speak to myself and of myself, I do it with positivity.
Today, I choose to believe that who I am is good enough. I guard my heart and my thoughts from the trap of self-condemnation by focusing on the potential stored within me.

Here is the full talk…. it’s about 90 minutes but you probably won’t even notice.
I could say more…..
