Make a list of your past successes. Your list doesn't have to consist of only monumental accomplishments. Include such "minor" victories as learning to skate, graduating from high school, or reaching a sales goal. If your list is long, good for you. If not, focus on how much you can improve. Review your list often, and as you do, close your eyes and remember the satisfaction and joy you felt with each accomplishment. Remember the special abilities, dedication, and effort required to achieve each success, and remind yourself that you earned and deserved each one.
