Hi Teens:

Check out a better way to look at yourself!

Here are some examples of adjectives to describe a better way of thinking about yourself. Throw out those old, dark sunglasses you have been wearing and put on a pair of new, super, great-quality sunglasses that will let you see yourself in a much better light!

Punctual Patient Persevering Positive

Resilient Resourceful Reliable Respectful

Sense of Humor

Start giving yourself the credit you deserve.

Notice the things you do well every day.

Recognize that you get to school on time every day, pay attention in class, and take care of your school assignments. These actions show commitment, responsibility, organization, an open mind, self-reliance, and more.

How are you getting along with people? Do you show your friends you care about them? Do you remember people's birthdays? Do you speak well of others? If you do, you are demonstrating kindness, caring, honesty, generosity, and thankfulness.

Please take the time to think about how many positive words you could use to describe the things you do with the above adjectives and add some more. Since we aren't trained to think this way, we need to rethink our thinking!

Also, please go back to what you wrote earlier about situations that you were in and comments that were made about you, and change the unhelpful me-beliefs to more supporting ones!

Do write down all the positive attributes you can think of about yourself starting with "I am" and then say them out loud.


Tip #1: Be aware of your old negative beliefs, because those beliefs have kept you in your comfort zone. If you start believing in yourself, you will go and try out for the volleyball team. Of course, there is always a chance that things won't turn out the way you want them to, and then you'll have to deal with disappointment, something that is outside your comfort zone. It's far more comfortable to stay where you are then to take a chance. Most people have built-in resistance inside of them, and it keeps them where they are with negative me-beliefs. Be aware of this resistance and be prepared to fight it! You are enough!

Tip #2: Before falling asleep and when you wake up, think three positive thoughts about yourself. To help you remember to do that, write the number 3 on a piece of paper and put it by your bed.

"You're a perfectly valuable, creative, worth-while person simply because you exist."
St. Francis de Sales

"You can be pleased with nothing when you are not pleased with yourself."
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

"I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship."
Louisa May Alcott

"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
Lucille Ball

"Contrary to popular thinking, being worthy isn't something you earn, it's something you recognize. And once you do, you won't be able to think, speak
or behave in any other way than as if what you most wanted was meant to be."
Mike Dooley
