I develop compassion. I empathize with myself and others for the discomfort and struggles that we experience.
I share encouragement and support with my friends. I recognize the value of teamwork. I lend a sympathetic ear and a helping hand. I accept assistance from others, and let them know how much I value them.
I turn to my faith.
Meditation and prayer protect me from becoming angry or bitter. I remain grateful for the blessings in my life. I look at the big picture. I accept responsibility for how my behavior contributes to any predicament. I consider the positive changes I want to make.
I persevere. I am willing to work hard for what I want. I remember my initial purpose, and deepen my sense of commitment. I consider myself a winner as long as I refuse to give up.
