MAIN LINE TO SOUND SELF-ESTEEM
BASIC AFFIRMATIONS FOR THE DAILY PROGRAM
FOR THE FOUNDATION OF SOUND SELF ESTEEM
It is essential that these be established as being true and that they be installed so that they are automatically available to the mind. Say each one three times, attempting to do the second and third times from memory.
“If you will alert yourself to your value judging and make the following affirmations a reality throughout your day, every day, you will soon achieve sound self-esteem, for sound self-esteem IS total unconditional acceptance.”
I REALIZE THAT:
1. I AM NOT MY ACTIONS
AND THAT EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER DONE HAS BEEN DICTATED BY MY PREVAILING AWARENESS.
2. THUS ANY FAULT MUST LIE NOT WITH ME, BUT WITH MY LIMITED AND DISTORTED AWARENESS.
I REFRAIN FROM JUDGING MYSELF, FOR I REALIZE I AM NOT MY ACTIONS AND KNOW I INVARIABLY DO THE BEST MY CURRENT AWARENESS PERMITS.
“If you purge yourself of guilt, stop all value judging, thoroughly understand and deeply sense the reality of each idea of the following affirmations – and meaningfully affirm them at every opportunity throughout your day, every day, until they are constantly alive in your consciousness, you will achieve sound self-esteem with an absolute minimum of time and effort."
MASTER AFFIRMATIONS FOR SOUND SELF-ESTEEM
EVEN THOUGH OUR AWARENESS MAY DIFFER, NO ONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD IS ONE IOTA MORE OR LESS WORTHY, MORE OR LESS IMPORTANT THAN MY OWN PRECIOUS SELF.
I LOVE AND CHERISH MY WONDERFUL SELF. I REALIZE THAT I AM NOT MY ACTIONS, THAT I AM A UNIQUE AND PRECIOUS BEING, RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN LIFE, EVER DOING THE BEST MY CURRENT AWARENESS PERMITS, EVER GROWING IN WISDOM AND LOVE.
“If you discipline (motivate) yourself to make the following Action Statements a “way of life,” you will eliminate confusion, conflict and frustration, achieve greater productivity and success, and generate and nourish sound self-esteem.”
BASIC ACTION STATEMENTS FOR SOUND SELF-ESTEEM
I AM MY FINAL AUTHORITY AND IN FULL CHARGE OF MY OWN LIFE AND AFFAIRS – TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING I THINK, SAY AND DO.
I PLAN MY DAY, DO FIRST THINGS FIRST, PATIENTLY, ONE AT A TIME, AND DO NOT FRET ABOUT WHAT I HAVE YET TO DO.
THE ACID TEST:
“If you still have a need or desire to impress others, you do not yet have sound self-esteem.”
AFFIRMING YOUR RIGHT TO BE LESS THAN PERFECT
EVEN THOUGH I CANNOT ESCAPE THE CONSEQUENCES, I ALLOW MYSELF THE FREEDOM TO OVERINDULGE, TO “GOOF OFF”, TO MAKE MISTAKES, TO BE DEFEATED, TO FAIL – FREE OF RESISTANCE, SELF-ACCUSATION, SHAME, GUILT OR FEELING “LESS THAN.”
AFFIRMATION FOR RELEASE OF INNER TURMOIL
KNOWING I AM NOT MY ACTIONS OR AWARENESS, I REALIZE I HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE. THUS I AM KIND AND GENTLE WITH MYSELF – FREE TO DO AND BE AS I MYSELF SEE FIT.
AFFIRMATION FOR RELEASE OF PRESSURE
I AM FREE OF PRESSURE AND FRUSTRATION, FOR I REALIZE THAT I CAN DO ONLY WHAT MY TIME AND MY CURRENT AWARENESS PERMIT.
AFFIRMATION FOR ACCEPTANCE
I KNOW THAT ALL MY PROBLEMS AND HURTING ARE AIDS TO MY NEEDED LEARNING AND GROWTH – TO THE EXPANSION OF MY AWARENESS – AND RESIST NOTHING I CANNOT CHANGE.
ACTION STATEMENT FOR SELF-DISCIPLINE
I DO NOT DRIFT OR PROCRASTINATE. I DISCIPLINE MYSELF THROUGH BEING AWARE OF WHAT IS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE IN MY LIFE AND GENERATE THE NECESSARY MOTIVATION TO BRING IT ABOUT.
ACTION STATEMENT FOR LOVING RELATIONSHIPS
I REFRAIN FROM ALL VALUE JUDGING, FOR EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT LIKE WHAT OTHERS SAY OR DO, I CONCEDE THEM THE RIGHT TO THEIR OWN AWARENESS AND THUS AM FREE OF RESENTMENT, ANIMOSITY, BITTERNESS AND HATE.
AFFIRMATION FOR HUMILITY
I AM FREE OF PRIDE, FOR I REALIZE THAT HOWEVER EXEMPLARY MY CONDUCT OR ACCOMPLISHMENTS MAY BE, I CAN DO ONLY WHAT MY CURRENT AWARENESS ENABLES ME TO DO.
AFFIRMATION FOR COMPASSION
I AM LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE TOWARD ALL WHO ARE HURTING BECAUSE OF THEIR UNWISE ACTIONS. I REALIZE THAT EXCEPT FOR MY MORE FORTUNATE AWARENESS I COULD BE THE ONE HURTING.
