‘Do You Know Your ABC’s?’ —excerpt from Don’t Give It Away! by Iyanla Vanzant
Accept your goodness, your beauty, your value, and your worth!
Believe in yourself!
Choose for yourself only those things that are good for you!
Discipline yourself to always do your best and to do it on time!
Excellence, not excess, is the key!
Faith and fearlessness fuel your dreams!
Greatness is the stuff you are made of; act like you know!
Honesty keeps you free of guilt and shame!
Intuition is the teaching from within; pay attention to what you feel!
Joy is what you feel when you love yourself first!
Knowledge is the key to freedom!
Love is what you are, not what you give or get!
Mistakes are lessons that you need to learn!
Never say never! New days bring new ideas and new beginnings!
Order is the law that puts you where you need to be —when you need to be there!
Plan prayerfully. Prepare purposefully. Pursue persistently!
Quiet time is necessary for a powerful mind!
Respect yourself and others will do the same!
Self is the most important thing you have to give!
Trust yourself and the process of life!
Unexpected doors are open!
Victory is the prize!
Wisdom is using what you have!
X-pect the BEST always!
You are the light of the world!
Zealously nurture, honor and love yourself!
