Things that Hang on My Frig..........

Having a Sense of Power Is All About........

*Believing that we can do what we set out to do

*Feeling that we can handle, one way or another, what is put before us to do

*Knowing that we can get what we need in order to do what we must

*Feeling that we are in charge of our own life

*Feeling comfortable when we have a responsibility to fulfill

*Knowing that others can't make us do anything we really don't want to do

*Feeling we can make decisions and solve most problems we might have

*Knowing that in spite of pressure or stress, we are not going to lose control of ourselves easily

*Being able to use the skills we have in situations which require those skills

The competitive spirit is a fundamental requirement for great accomplishment. The competitive spirit in children should not be thwarted, but rather, refined through actions, and tempered by a social conscience. The need to win is strongest in those who continually fell the imminence of failure. The highest form of the competitive spirit is the motive to challenge oneself.

Great post, Mikael! All excellent points and ones I strive to maintain myself.

I think one other that I'm currently having to remind myself of, is that I am valuable and deserve to be treated respectfully and honourably.

Big Hug to you,
