I discovered the career of my dreams, and I focused so intently on developing as an individual that I forgot about looking for another person. But until you have that security in yourself, you'll continue to fall for the wrong people. What will your life look like in 10 years if you don't take this year to be whole? Make those waking thoughts empowering — focus on things like how capable, confident, useful, valuable, worthy, kind, generous, dependable, independent, happy, joyful, adventurous, bold, secure, and loving you are.
Pump yourself up with positive affirmations, especially when you're feeling low.
Now I find security in knowing myself, in constantly improving myself, and in helping others to succeed in life and love.
Because I committed to being secure in myself, I'm a whole man. But in the grand scheme of things, you'll earn back dividends in happiness. This is your happiness we're talking about; this is your one and only life.
Then build on those thoughts for the rest of the day.
