One of my main goals in life is to be financially free. Everything I do now in my personal and professional life is geared towards achieving the financial freedom I desire. And I know it is on the horizon.
I am excited about what is to come, about what I know I can easily achieve once I leave financial challenges behind. I anticipate being able to provide all the niceties that my loved ones deserve.
I acknowledge that my past chronicles unwise choices and a lack of the discipline needed to maintain financial wellness. But I also recognize that the time has come to put aside such behaviors and focus on a financially healthy future.
In my workplace, I focus on achieving the targets set for the company. I actively play my part in making the business successful so I can, in turn, reap financial success. I look forward to the rewards in store for me.
In my personal life, I eliminate unnecessary and wasteful expenditures so I can put that money away in savings. I now truly understand the impact of being financially responsible. I know that I am in charge of my financial future.
Today, I bring my financial freedom into being. The pride I feel as I make wise choices in managing my money keeps me focused on my goal.

Disappointments are a part of life and losses are inevitable. However, negative experiences make the positive ones even more worthwhile. Plus, I strive to turn every loss into a win. I might win something other than what I expected, but it’s a win nevertheless.
Sure, I know what it feels like to lose. I admit to feeling down and disappointed when something I work hard to achieve slips out of reach. But I also know what it feels like to win, so I gain knowledge from each disappointment that can help me win more often.
Whenever something works out unfavorably, I analyze the sequence of events and look for a probable cause of the disappointing result.
I can usually find the culprit in a weakness here or choice there. What I learn is enlightening and most rewarding!
Experiencing a loss makes future victories and successes that much sweeter. I feel more pleased when I win something after suffering a loss in the past. I believe my losses make me better equipped to succeed and look forward in anticipation to future victories.
Today, I vow to enjoy my rewards, even if they are something other than victory. I know that there is a shining moment out there for me, and I commit to making myself ready to seize that moment when it comes.

I am a valuable person and make worthwhile contributions to the world. Each day, in big and small ways, I remind myself of this. In any circumstance, I know that I am worthy.
Knowing my own value is important to me. Therefore, I cultivate thoughts that encourage me in what I am good at and forgive myself for any mistakes. I consciously invest my time and efforts in recognizing my own worth.
If I experience situations in which I begin to feel a lack of self-approval or self-love, I stop for a moment to take a deep breath. As I breathe, I remember that my value is independent of any external circumstances or actions I take. I love and approve of myself always.
I am free of all random thoughts and distractions. Whatever I choose as my focus becomes the sole direction of my mind. And I am thankful for the ability to direct my thoughts.
Each moment, I have choices about what I bring to pass in my life. I have heard that what we think, we create, and I believe that this is true. Much of my creative power lies in my ability to choose my thoughts. I set out in one direction and go only that way until I decide otherwise. Nothing can distract me.
My focus is singular.
I am capable of excluding all else from my mind except for whatever I choose to focus on. If competing ideas arise, I consciously set them aside for another time. I engage in this on a thought-by-thought basis, cultivating awareness of my mind’s contents so that I can choose its direction.
I am thankful for my focus, which allows me to be truly centered in who I am and what I want.
Since I can really be present in each moment, I can also fully enjoy the blessings that come my way. I can equally savor my partner’s laughter, the warmth of sunshine, or the intensity of completing a long project. This is a gift, and I am thankful.
Today, I celebrate my mental clarity. My focus has contributed substantially to all of my accomplishments. Because of my uncluttered mind, I am easily able to manifest my highest vision of myself. And I intentionally cultivate my focus at every possible opportunity.
1. What topics are easiest for me to focus on?
2. Are there directions in which I would rather devote my mental energy?
3. What can I do today to continue to cultivate an uncluttered mind?
I believe that I am chosen to help others by giving of my time, thoughts and worldly possessions. I give naturally and without reservations because I know it is my calling.
I feel a sense of accomplishment when others are grateful for what they receive from me. Even when the blessings of my kindness go unrecognized, I still feel fulfilled because I know I am doing the work I am meant to do.
The more I give, the more is restored to me. My blessings are insurmountable and always forthcoming. I cannot even count the ways I am blessed, as they are so many. I know that my giving spirit manifests them into my life.
My spirit is lifted when I am able to help others around me. Whether they need a kind word, listening ear, or financial assistance, I make myself available to give as I am able.
Today, I reinforce my commitment to giving selflessly. I receive tremendous joy and satisfaction when I am able to share my blessings with others. I know that each instance I choose to share kindness results in the world being a little brighter.
1. How do I react when others who are able to give choose to withhold selfishly?
2. Do I show gratitude when I am the recipient of kind thoughts, words, or other blessings?
3. Do I recognize even the smallest positive gestures as blessings?
