- I forgive myself for past inadequacies and mistakes, I am consciously aware of my decision making and consider my actions carefully, and with self-care in mind

- The more organized I become the better my chances of success, with this in mind, I choose to organize myself to a point where I can be successful

- I make changes to bad habits, and I will get more sleep, spend less time on social media and watching television, spend more time working on achieving my short term and medium term goals

- I have friends, and people who would support me if I really think about it, I recognize who they are and will reach out to them

- I am not weak, I am unique, I am Gods creation and I stand on this earth, willing to learn, and improve every day, as part of my life experience

- I put trust and faith in the universe, the energy of my ancestors and guardians, I trust they will keep me safe and guide me to making decisions in life, and in specific situations when I ask for guidance

- I get enough sleep and by subconscious mind helps me work through issues, I listen to myself and can choose the right path

- Today I will choose tasks that put me on the path to success, small habits done daily lead to long term success

- I am able to manage change, I embrace small changes as that is how I will grow from who I am today, to who I will be tomorrow
