A little pressure is the lift I need

A little pressure is the lift I need to hurdle over limitations and expectations

Pressure can be my invigorating teammate.  My work benefits from applying gentle pressure to myself.  It motivates me to do my best.

I thrive under pressure because I am a positive person.  I choose to use it as a performance enhancer.  While others get bent out of shape by pressure, I use it to my advantage.

With the right dose of pressure, I can conquer fear and self doubt.  I can fly over mountains and accomplish things I never would have accomplished if I worked with mediocrity instead.  Limitations are feeble against me when I am on a mission.

When under pressure, I only use my time for progress.  Therefore, I stay away from hesitation and procrastination. I simply launch myself into action. Under a little pressure I find that I do not have time to doubt myself. I charge forward simply trying my best. Second guessing myself is out of the question.

If I don’t feel like I have the strength to finish something I’ve started, a little dose of pressure clears up my view quickly.  It is in my nature to impress and to perform above the rest.  

When others make demands of me, it is because they believe in me. Pressure propels me to exceed their expectations.  I embrace the challenge and perform better than I could ever imagine.

I welcome all forms of pressure including competition, deadlines, evaluations, and high expectations.  No matter what the challenge is before me, I am ready to leap over it.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I use pressure to my advantage?
2. What pressures are before me today?
3. What would my life look like if I was satisfied with the status quo?

I am at peace because I allow my body to recharge

When I give my body downtime I am able to recharge and become more centered.
Because I get the rest I need and make relaxation a priority in my life I am abundantly peaceful. My tranquility surrounds my life and I am better able to handle all situations that come my way.

I am recharged when I take time to pursue my hobbies. Even though I am an adult, my playtime is important to me.Taking the time to go on a bike ride down the river trail or going out with friends makes me feel refreshed. I can release any stress that I may have because I can recharge myself.

My body requires rest and sleep to function at its highest potential. That’s why I take care of myself by making sure I get my rest. Resting my body allows my mind to be clear so I can embrace my peaceful state.

Tonight I will take my time in preparing for sleep instead of rushing through my routine. In this way, I can appreciate the process of preparing for rest.

I joyfully slip into my neatly made bed and breathe deeply several times to fully prepare my body for the rest I will receive.  As I drift off to sleep I can appreciate the stillness of the room and the stillness of my mind. When I awake, I feel renewed and my day starts off with peace.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Have I taken the time to play?
2. Did I get an appropriate amount of sleep last night?
3. What is my nighttime routine?
