The truth remains the same regardless of my wishes for things to be different. I make progress when I accept my current conditions, rather than trying to evade them.
I recognize that denial is often the first response to feeling uncomfortable. When I am willing to look at situations differently, it opens up the door to growth. Looking at things from multiple angles expands my vision. I appreciate the complexity of nurturing a close friendship or running a successful business.
Challenging my assumptions strengthens my decision making.
I examine my beliefs to see if they are valid.
Monitoring my blind spots is important. My past history and emotions influence how I interpret current events in my life. There may be simple solutions within my reach. I see them when I open my eyes wider.
Talking with others enables me to draw on their wisdom and strengths. My loved ones may see things that I miss. Even strangers give me valuable insights.
Training myself to think more realistically offers great rewards. I reduce stress and enjoy more peace of mind. I see the positive aspects of my life and feel grateful. I spot the potential hardships that may lie ahead and develop plans for coping with them.
Today I know that the truth sets me free. My thinking is positive, realistic, and hopeful.
