You will help yourself regain a new life by accepting yourself and loving the person you have become. Major changes are occurring; spiritually you should feel like a new person, the person you have wanted to be for so long. By devoting time and effort to improve yourself, you have now taken the first step to feeling better about yourself. You should be beginning to feel that you could do whatever you put your mind to. You should be no longer ashamed of yourself. You are a very special person and nobody can take that away from you.
Talking about positive things, ignoring, and forgetting about negative issues should be easy for you now. You should be at the stage of where you are proud of who you are. You should have a clear outlook on how to live an enjoyable life. You should no longer feel that negative issues and problems that control your life. You should feel enthusiastic about going after the goals you have set for yourself.
You have now become a stronger individual, with a more positive outlook on life. The negative characteristics (weaknesses) about yourself that you did not care for are slowly starting to disappear. This should make you feel proud and help boost your confidence and self-esteem.
You can succeed, if you take the inner strength that you have developed to focus on the positive things about yourself. Stop yourself if you begin feeling depressed because you are unhappy with something in your life.
Dwelling on the negative will only end up ruining you, not helping you. Instead create a mental diagram in your mind on how you want the new you to look, act and feel. This will make you focus on all the good things about yourself. Your battle with negative ness will soon be over when you conquer it with pride.
You will notice that you are becoming more hopeful, more independent. You are going to see yourself looking at life from a more constructive point of view. I know I am going to succeed in life. Several years ago, you would not have heard me say that, but I am saying it today.
As I started changing my lifestyle, I made sure that the people around me were a positive influence on my life. Sometimes the closest people around you are the ones that hurt you the most. I had to make sure that friends and family that surrounded me gave the respect and support that I needed. Are the people in your life loving or hurting you? If you want to succeed in life, you must be in a positive environment with positive people.
It is vital to think of yourself as a high achiever and accomplish the goals in life that you always dreamed about fulfilling. Do not stop yourself from becoming the person you want to become in life. We all have our problems and we need to learn to work through them. Do not waste time and energy feeling sorry for yourself. Be tough and believe in yourself. Good luck! However, before I go I would like to share a poem I wrote for you on the next page.
