My riches are those things for which there is no monetary valuation. My family’s well-being – and my own – is more important to me than the opinions of others. What others think of my visual image, my health, or my financial status is irrelevant to me.
I choose my friends and influencers wisely. I surround myself with people who respect my values and encourage me to make positive progress toward my goals and dreams.
I avoid placing myself in situations where I could feel tempted to make irresponsible or negative choices for the sake of impressing others. In the end, what matters is whether I remain true to my personal values.
I am free from the need to impress others because I am the only one who needs to be at peace with my decisions. Armed with increased self-confidence, I stand up to the negative effects of comparison.
Rather than being concerned with how others feel about my decisions, I make time for personal reflection and self-evaluation. I limit others’ ability to make personal judgments about me by keeping my most important decisions to myself.
I base my decisions upon what I believe. I make strategic and intelligent purchases based on what I need and can afford. My social interactions are based on honesty and integrity. I say what I mean and mean what I say.
In everything I do, I remain true to myself because the positive effects of rising in status, gaining friends or increasing income are incomparable to the joy and peace of self-acceptance.
Today, I choose to accept myself just the way I am while laying the groundwork for future growth. Today, I choose to accept myself so that others can learn to accept me too. I embrace clarity, lining up my actions with my beliefs and rejecting deception.
