Live your life on the basis of what is possible, right and good for you instead of what you or others think you should do.
Find out what you want and what you are good at, value those, and take actions designed to fulfill your potential.
Respect your own needs. Identify what really fulfills you – not just immediate gratification. Respecting your deeper needs will increase your sense of worth and well-being.
Make decisions. Practice making and implementing positive choices flexibly but firmly, and trust yourself to deal with the consequences.
