January 27: Building Self-Respect and Pride in Oneself

I think it is important for each of us to learn, to remember, and to practice, being proud of ourselves.  Every thought we think and every action we take is our choice.  The thoughts we choose, and the consequences from each of these thoughts and actions, are OUR responsibility.  We can consistently think things and do things which will elicit pride in ourselves, always.  Good thoughts and good choices, practiced daily and consistently to the best of our ability for that day, will grow and evolve us into the best possible version of ourselves.

The interesting thing is that when we are proud of ourselves and appreciate ourselves, not only do we stop seeking these things from others, but we begin thinking, acting, creating, and attracting from a different place WITHIN, and life truly becomes magical.

Each of us has something to be proud of, something that makes us feel important and significant, and which empowers us to contribute to others and add value to this world in some way.

What are the things you are most proud of so far in YOUR life?

When we consistently do hard things, we build self-respect and character.  We build credibility with ourselves.  One way to be proud of ourselves is to challenge ourselves with difficult tasks or the achievement of goals, in order to consistently step out of our comfort zone, to grow, improve, and evolve.  This can cause a sense of pride within us that is truly earned and deserved.

Today I will remember to be proud of myself, because I EARNED it, and because I deserve to be proud.  I will consistently focus on and do the things that will continuously make me proud of myself.
