Working on My Character Defects


...IN MY FOURTH STEP

I did not believe that I was beautiful.
I did not believe I love myself enough.
I did not believe I had a lot of courage.
I did not own my own power.

It was suggested to me:  To make out a POSITIVE contract with myself.
So my contract was: I AM A BEAUTIFUL, LOVING, COURAGEOUS AND POWERFUL WOMAN!  YES I AM! 

I was asked to practice this out loud at least five to ten times a day in front of my mirror, until I started to believe it. 
I did this for at least two years and then I started to believe it.

Then I moved on to the next four defects.
I am not cheerful enough.
I am not compassionate enough
I am not patient enough
I am not spontaneous enough

I made out another contract:  I AM A CHEERFUL, COMPASSIONATE, PATIENT AND SPONTANEOUS WOMAN.  YES I AM!

I practiced this one for a year.  I am actually still practicing patience and spontaneity.  Not being spontaneous has proven to also be an asset of mine.  Very often when I want to jump into something, I hold back and sleep on it.  It has prevented me from making some serious mistakes.
Now I am working on:   I AM A CONFIDENT, TRUSTWORTHY, TOLERANT, AND WORTHY, WOMAN!  YES I AM!  I am sure there always is new stuff to work on.
