My spirit is alive and well because I give it permission to live loudly. The foundation of my being deserves to be embraced like everybody else’s. I stay away from hiding my true colors, even if they are unpopular with others.
The personality and character I portray are true to me. My life is the one that I choose. Although I lack some material possessions, I avoid using that to determine my worth. The realities portrayed by others have little bearing on how I feel about myself.
Job descriptions try to put me in a box where professional abilities are concerned. But I constantly work outside of those boundaries.
I take the time to show my employer that I am capable of more than what my job description dictates. I use each opportunity to showcase my other skills.
Being a high achiever naturally sparks jealousy in others who wish for my abilities. I ignore the names they call me because I am proud of my drive.
I avoid allowing the negative utterances of others to dim my light.
Today, my path in life is determined by my character and inner drive. I am happy to listen to my own heart and mind. They are the most loyal and honest sources of feedback about my journey and how I end up living it.
1. How do I differentiate between worthwhile advice and attempts to bring me down?
2. How do I respond when someone tries to discourage my conscious decision?
3. What examples do I willingly take from the lifestyles of others?
