Affirmation: I teach others how to treat me by how I treat myself

I listen to my inner voice that tells me how valuable I am. It reminds me that I am worth the best of everything. How I treat myself dictates to others how I expect to be treated.

Being respectful of my time means using it productively instead of wasting it. When I show others how I spend my days, I am able to send a message to them. My usage of time encourages productive and useful discourse with others.

I say positive things about myself in person and in public. By affirming that I am confident and loyal, I attract others who admire my confidence. I attract people who respect my loyalty and feel encouraged to be loyal to me in return.

Displaying respectful behavior to myself shows others what my expectations are. Anyone who approaches me in an offensive manner is turned away. My self-worth is too great for me to make room for those who are disrespectful to me.

Today, I know what I want so I display behaviors that encourage the achievement of those desires. My ability to teach others about my boundaries ensures that I am treated respectfully. I am courageous when it comes to defending my sense of self and honor.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. How do I show how I want to be treated in the workplace?
2. In what ways does independence identify me as a contender for a promotion?
3. What are some of my values that help to build my character?
