Ask a friend what my greatest strength and weakness are
Strength: the love and support you give your friends
Weakness: letting emotion take over
You must know yourself to grow yourself.
SELF-AWARE: having conscious knowledge of one’s own character and feelings.
My capacity to confidently charge forward, relies solely on my ability to know who I am, and who I want to be. Through self-awareness, I can begin to leverage my strengths and accept my weaknesses. This deeper understanding helps me mindfully manage emotional reactions and skilfully navigate challenging situations.
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Write down one of my greatest strengths as well as acknowledge one of my biggest weaknesses.
My greatest strength is my passion for learning.
My greatest weakness is my lack of confidence in my decisions.

I will hold myself accountable to completing my 30-day goal by making the following commitment:
MAKING MY PUBLIC STATEMENT
We are what we repeatedly do.
COMMITTED: feeling dedication and loyalty to a cause, activity, or job; wholeheartedly dedicated.
Making small micro acts of courage, each day is important to me because I know it takes discipline and repetition to truly transform. Some days will be harder than others, but I have the self-disciple to own that resistance and stay the course. This small win will perpetuate more small wins throughout the day making it easier to develop habits that empower brave living. I will step through fear, courageously into action.
Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.
TODAY’S BRAVE ACT
I am committing to one small thing I can do today that will help me stay committed to my larger 30-day goal.
(Goal: to be living a simpler, calmer life in and out of my home)
What will help me stay committed to this goal?
following the routine I am creating to single-task
saying NO when I need to
being confident in my words, actions, and decisions
not overcommitting to anything
getting enough sleep and fresh air
moving as much as I can
enjoying a healthier diet
enjoying each moment as it arrives
acknowledging the past and not looking too far into the future
living quietly, knowing when to speak up and when to stay silent
TODAY’S JOURNAL PROMPT
Staying committed to my 30-day goal is important to be because: I cannot live a healthier life if I am carrying the burden of excessive stress and anxiety on my shoulders. Once I begin living my life with the acknowledgment and pure acceptance of what I can and cannot change, my days and nights will be so much simpler. Removing the clutter and mess from my house means one step towards it truly becoming a home. Staying true to this challenge means I can really be a positive role model for my two children.
The consequences of excessive stress on my life are far too serious to ignore, so I am facing my life stressors head on, with a calm and positive mindset.
The future unfolds from the tip of intention.

What was the seed that inspired you to start this 30-day challenge?
Anxiety and the state of chaos in my house are the two seeds which inspired me to embark on this challenge. My intention by the end of this 30-Day Challenge is to feel more at ease in my house, which hopefully feels more like a home.
TODAY’S BRAVE ACT
Choose a physical object to serve as a reminder of why you committed to this 30-Day Challenge.
I choose my Mum’s little Jade Buddha as a reminder of my search for calm.
TODAY’S WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
When I am inspired I am motivated and driven. I can feel a flame inside me pushing me to create more and perform better. The only thing in between in where I am now and where I want to be, is acting on my brave intentions. Taking a moment to complete each day’s journal is a small win that will perpetuate more small wins throughout the day making it easier to develop habits that empower brave living.
“From a tiny spark may burst a mighty flame.”
