As we finish up 2017, there are a few things to keep in mind about yourself: You have been specifically created as you. You are the way you are–your background, the way you look, your nationality, etc.–for a specific purpose.
The way you have been put together and the experiences you have had gives you a particular perspective on the world, not to keep you down but rather to give you a fresh and new way of bringing goodness into the world.
There are people who are hungry for what you have to say, the things that you can do, and what you have to offer. And only you, precisely because you are the way you are, can reach these people.
Keep these in mind as we leave 2017 and enter 2018:

Your homework today is to get out your mirror. Change these statements to “I” statements, especially the ones that ring true for you. Then, with a big smile and with great enthusiasm, say them as you gaze at yourself in the mirror.
Jot down your favorite statements and keep them handy so you can refer to them throughout your day, as often as you need.
Let the energy of these statements propel you onward as you take steps toward your dreams, even if those steps are actually only little bits of steps. Nothing is wasted; it all adds up!
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
